Oasis' Amplify....What do you think?

Recommended Posts

I am on that first post-AMP sailing, so I'm excited to see what changes are going to be made!  I won't have sailed her pre-AMP, but I will have been on the other three Oasis class ships to have some frame of comparison.

Playmakers and BBQ being added..super glad I got the UDP for this cruise too!!  🐷

Since we come with kids, happy they are adding waterslides, Abyss (I know, sore spot for some), another (and different) laser tag, etc.  We're past the younger pool, but Splashaway Bay is also great addition for families.  Loved El Loco Fresh on Symphony so great they are adding these to more ships.  No booking on Oasis at this time, but would happily book it.  Think they made some good decision.

I'm sure many are anxious to hear if Cats is being replaced as i'ts not mentioned.

"Cats" has ran its course...time to move on to something better. Very fond of the Caribbean style resort area and Coconut & Lime Bar additions, as it is on Navigator OTS. Not to fun of Abyss; but, kool with it...helps spread the activities & congestion around the ship. Wish they could update the zipline to go around the back-half of the ship, around Windjammer, using rollers so it can curve around vs cables & a straight line, short ride, pattern. 

I really enjoyed Dazzles...the Music Hall on Anthem was fun too...so it's the best of both worlds. Wife will be thrilled of the BBQ joint...hopefully, Royal come up with a different them on each Oasis Class Ship...seafood on Symphony & Harmony, pork on Oasis & Allure, whatever on O5 & O6. 😏

I think those are all great additions.  However, I would like to see the 9-night route out of Bayonne kept.  That's a good cruise for when you can't do a B2B and a week just isn't long enough - 😄

I’m hoping the slides are more like Navigator and less like Harmony. The Navigator slides were a big step up. 

The Navigator slides look amazing.  Would there be room for these types of slides?  Perfect storm are more contained to a specific space.

My guess would be that the bigger problem is the height of the slides. Navigator’s tower seems like it wouldn’t fit on An Oasis class ship and still get under the bridges. And I don’t think you could make it retractable like the smoke stacks. 

Navigator it smaller so maybe that was easier to fit.

I have sailed on Anthem a few times in the October/November time frame and one of the nice things was being able to stay inside the solarium during the cold weather until you get closer to Florida. I have not been on the Oasis class, but it looks like the solarium  is very open. How windy is it and will it be tolerable while underway? Or are they just counting on folks enjoying other parts of the ship until it gets warm?

Not at all windy.

I think the entirety of the Oasis Class is perfection in its current form. Adding $168m in upgrades to an already amazing ship can only be a huge win for everyone! 

We hope to go on Oasis next year  :)  It looks like a beautiful ship  :)

Booked Allure for Jan 2020. Wanted to book Oasis because we Knew she would be amped by then but because we could not be assured that cats was no longer going to be playing at that time. Booked a different ship just to avoid Cats lol.

Very first experience as well as my very first cruise was on Oasis, absolutely fell in love with that ship!  I have to say that I was extremely happy with the ship prior to the changes and am extremely happy over the changes that they have made!  I can not wait to see the changes in person!  Looks great to me!!!

I like most of the changes a lot and understand the reasoning behind the others. 

Very excited about the pool deck upgrades especially after what we've seen with some of the Voyager class ships. 

Do you think they are going with the slides because Skypad had problems?

Love the Oasis and the changes sound great. However, according to Matt on comment page under announcement, Cats is not being replaced with dry dock changes. That is a big disappointment.. We are booked already for December 2019.

I have yet to sail on Anthem or Harmony, but i have to believe the novelty of the bionic bar wears off after day 2 of the cruise. To see the Champagne bar, one of the few venues that actually has bar talent instead of drink slingers, replaced is not a good move for the customers in my opinion.

I agree that the new BBQ place is exciting  :)  Can't wait to see a menu!

Was there any mention of addition of Solo cabins?
Wasn't able to see any mention of them but maybe they're just announcing the major facility changes at this point?
