My mother wanted to get off the ship for a bit to see what there was nearby the immediate port area.  Spoiler alert: Pretty much a small carbon copy of every other Caribbean port.

The Oasis class ships dock at Crown Bay which is lacking the shopping and attractions of the other port, Havensight.  You have to take a taxi to get to downtown or Havensight and it is $4 per person each way.  

Taxi in St. Thomas is code word for an open-air ride in the back of a pick-up truck that has been modified with a canopy and bench seating.  My mother noped out of that one.  

Good news is that you and your camera CAN survive falling off the back of one.  Right, @CGTLH?

I don't recall much of what you're talking about... Was wondering how I wound up in the middle of the road.

For the record the camera did recover once both batteries were removed.

We headed back to the ship and decided to grab some lunch.  As is usual on port days, Windjammer was the best option that had air conditioning.  It beat out El Loco Fresh (outdoors), Park Cafe, Sorrentos and Cafe Promenade (limited selection). Johnny Rockets, Playmakers, and Portside BBQ weren't open yet.  

Wasn't too busy as most folks were still in port.  We still had to walk all the way to the back to find an empty table.

One of the nice things that appears to have been added in the amplification is the hand-washing station area as you immediately enter. Unlike on Symphony, the hand-washing station area is very open and does not feel quite as claustrophobic.

Of course I scouted my favorite Windjammer selections in the Asian station..Indian food!  They had dal, mutter paneer, and chicken curry today.

I have to agree with your Coke Zero hierarchy - it's my soda of choice as well.

Good!  Everyone thinks I'm crazy.  The 20oz ones taste the best and they don't sell those in multi-packs, of course.  The 16.9 bottles have a weird burnt plasticky smell to me too.

Oh and these non-US canned Coke Zeros taste different than the US cans do.  I keep trading out the ones that aren't in English 😂😂

Plus some of the non-US cans tasted different than other non-US cans. 

How many different non-US variations did we sample again on Symphony?

4:29 and I am in the Diamond Lounge and there are only a handful of seats free.  I have been chilling here for over an hour, but most of these folks just wandered in...hmmm.

They ran out of stuffing and I thought there was going to be a riot.  Poor chef said it was coming but he couldn't tell the irate gentleman when.  

And yes, still had Indian food.

All draft beers..  Including those in Playmakers? I may skip the Diamond Dungeon ... 

...potential loophole I am hoping to exploit but haven't gotten around to.  Thanksgiving football thwarted my efforts today..waaay too crowded.  Shall report back 😉

No partaking of Thanksgiving delicacies for me..my dinner involves dinner and a show.

And commence Round 3.  Our server thinks the Izumi Hibachi has a $35 limit like the sushi side..let the fun begin!  😂😂😂
