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

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?

The solo cabins were pulled from Symphony during build, so I have a feeling they won't be in the future of any other Oasis class ships.  Harmony has 3 ocean view & 10 inside solo cabins.  They usually go for $1,000-$1,300/week.  I often find you can get a Central Park balcony for $1,500 solo with C&A discount, so not much savings.

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 is remaining, Matt said during last night's FB live that the entertainment was staying the same.

That is correct. I asked Royal Caribbean's PR team about Cats and they said no change to it, or any shows.

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 really liked the Music Hall on Anthem as well.  It is a perfect venue for cover bands and themed dance parties  :)

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. 

Silly me but I am still holding out hopes that they WILL replace Cats but just aren't ready to announce it yet.  That show was unpopular from the very beginning and it continues to show poor audience satisfaction (people continue to leave at intermission and not return) so if they do NOT replace that show I will be very surprised.  If it stays I will blame the crane wreck even if it's not the reason !

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.

Absolutely agree.  Not only does the novelty wear off, but on most of the ships on which I have sailed that have a BB, the thing is either down for repairs or demands constant human supervision.  On Anthem in Feb a poor girl was there 100% of the time to clean up after its messes and ensure that people were getting their drinks.  COMPLETELY defeats the purpose (and allure) of a BOT.

Agree with many of the Bionic Bar comments.

Adding the Bionic Bar wouldn't be so bad if they would keep/add some sort "hand crafted" bar. I know many say the bar in Wonderland fits this. However the hours for the Wonderland bar are very limited.

While on Mariner a couple weekends ago I booked an Oasis 3 day for April. Today it’s $263 more then I paid, wonder if the AMP is causing a price increase?  Glad I booked when I did, and the AMP was why I booked so I could check out the upgrades.

I specifically asked this question on a back stage tour on Allure, when do they change the shows?, the Stage Manager said if it was going to be changed it would only happen during a dry dock, he said as you can imagine, all the set pieces have to be removed and new ones added, riggings, lighting etc..

I have never seen Cats so have no comment around that topic.

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

This is the clip I got sent in my email.

I think Skypad was an activity solution for ships other then Oasis Class due to space restrictions. Skypad offered the most value with less real estate. Just my opinion.

You make a valid point.  The slides definitely require some space.

I am disappointed about the champagne bar also.  The bionic bar was a big disappointment.  It needed maintenance numerous times on Anthem and was much smaller than I thought it would be.

Would rather have Hooked than a BBQ joint.

While I hope the BBQ restaurant will be good, I too am disappointed about Hook'd not being included.  I think a dedicated seafood restaurant makes sense  :)

Getting ready to book my first RCCL cruise (solo...woot!) on Oasis after the amplification and I think I'm actually ok that Cats is staying since I hate Cats. That just makes it one less thing I have to worry about missing since I"ll actively choose not to go to the show.

The fact there is a new "Cats" movie coming out with Taylor Swift and Jennifer Hudson, I bet the show will get renewed interest  :)
