Interesting stand out is the new Giovanni's concept: "Giovanni's Kitchen and Wine Bar"

Indeed.  I wonder if Vintages is being displaced.  

Makes sense placing a bar in a restaurant, serves double duty.

Vintages and Giovanni's are already right next to each other. Remove some walls and redo service space and you get a combined footprint. Biggest thing is it expands the seating capacity of Giovanni's. Plus I'm sure it opens up the "bar snacks" sales opportunity even more.

Some new renderings to look at which were not part of the Oasis announcement. I assume that the spaces on Oasis will be similar. 

If Royal follows down the Voyager path of AMP, each ship will have some differences.  That's intentional, otherwise why sail again on the other sister ship?

I wouldn't be surprised if there were some minor differences.

The very first thing that popped in my head when I saw that was... you! 

We're actually doing the western med out of Barcelona on Allure, with three stops in Italy.  I'm sure I'll be having plenty on land - but will be interesting to compare land to ship.  Especially with our $16.36 day drink package...

You mean the non amplification of voyager compared to every other ship.

And once again they are going to take out the iconic classy Champagne Bar and replace it with the useless Bionic Bar.  I assume it is to be able to charge the extra for drinks and not pay a bartender.

They still have to have an attendant there to clean up all the oopsies that the robots make and refill the bottles.  I can take it or leave it myself..just glad I'm going to get to see the Champagne Bar at least once before it is gone from existence.

Drink charges are essentially the same as any bar on the ship, they don't charge extra to use the Bionic Bar.

While I am not a fan of losing the Champagne Bar and rarely use any Bionic Bar there is no ulterior motive with the Bionic Bar.  It's marketing related to appeal to some members of the cruise audience who are attracted to such technology.   It's not my thing, but it's also not my ship or my company.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

I just came home from Italy. It's everywhere, even places not known for limoncello! I meant to bring it home but forgot.

Our 19 yr old just came home from a three week study abroad in Italy, and he brought us home a bottle.  Yum!  So different from the limoncello my husband makes.  The lemons are key.
