On many ships Diamond happy hour includes draft beer.  I’m guessing they’ll re-define that on Oasis.

I need to snag a D menu and bring it with me.   Forgot that draft beer clause.

On the UDP front our server thinks the dining package doesn't cover Playmakers.  Here we go again 😂

Food porn..we ordered 12 wings, buffalo chicken crunch roll, and the Playmakers classic burger.

Overall this was a bit of a miss.  The wings ARE breaded for those who care about these things. My mom complained the wings were small.  The aged cheddar in the burger was so aged that it reminisced a Kraft single.  The handformed patty I remembered from Symphony is some tough pre-formed thing now. Bacon was crispy though.  Fries were steak fries with parmesan cheese melted on them. They warranted a "good".  The buffalo chicken crunch roll was the star of the show..think shredded buffalo chicken inside of an egg roll wrapper.  Delicious.  

The waiter resolved the UDP issue and brought the check before the food in which I tipped and signed.  Havent seen him since the food was delivered.

Note we were a party of 2 in 2 different rooms. He only took one card and put all $22 on it and zeroed it out.

I wouldn't pay extra based on this experience but I would use it as an included dining option to stave off food coma from dining in the coveted specialty dining restaurants.

@AshleyDillo asking for my kids, are you able to get a pic of the ice cream selection at Sugar Beach?  Just whenever you wander by...

Just for your kiddos..smells like diabetes in there.  They don't rotate flavors..this is what they always have.

Are these the beers at Playmakers?  Thanks, we have been really curious about the craft beer choices onboard.

And this is why I don't UDP very often.  If they would allow me to know what I get for $X I'd buy it, but this whole "if it's Tuesday on Oasis when it's not sunny on Navigator on the previous Monday, then you get Playmakers" causes me to avoid the UDP.  Maybe that it's it - corporate sells it, ships don't want it so they veto it to the extent they can.  

I also just prebook the individual restaurants I want so we get the price and time down before the cruise and relax knowing we are not hit with 'surprise' changes

If you pass through the casino, take a peek to see if @CHRIS WONG is there at the casino host desk... He mentioned in his recent video that this will be his assignment now that he is on Oasis.

Chris Wong is most likely putting out fires from guests that apparently were not getting points last night on the machines. Multiple hours of play and 0.00 points....

Hmm..so where did I leave off last night...last thing I remember was robots taking jobs away from service workers

RIP Champagne Bar.  At least at this bar you don't have to feel shamed for not tipping in cash on top of the 18% gratuity for your drink?  Service is pretty slow anyways.

At that point it was pushing 9:30 and I was at the point where if I wasn't actively doing something I was going to fall asleep sitting up.  The only options then were passive activities (watching music).  The first night promenade balloon drop at midnight is always fun, but I knew I wouldn't make it that long without a nap.  

I went back to the cabin intending to take a nap so I could go watch the balloon drop.  Spoiler alert: I didn't end up seeing the balloon drop.

I "napped" until 2:45am.  Apparently I am able to self-regulate my naps as to ensure I won't miss the 3am room service hanger final call, but not to get up and go around crowds of people. 🤷‍♀️

I filled out my room service form and hung it on the door.  I like to use this as my alarm in the morning.  They call your room before your order is delivered.  Continental breakfast is completely free and the hanger clearly marks the items that fall under the $7.95 service charge.

I checked off 8:30-9:00.  It's a sea day...I have no plans.  The top tier gathering is at 10:30am and the CC Meet&Mingle is before that.  So..room service alarm.

They rang the room at 8:11am and my order was here at 8:17am.  Definitely worth the few $ cash tip.

i always feel weird about ordering just coffee..and I don't really eat breads or any of the other stuff on the menu..but I still order something so it's not as obvious that I am too lazy to walk down to Park Cafe to help myself 😬😂😏

Pro tip: Make sure to indicate how many of something you want when it comes to things like butter or cream cheese or they default to 1 piece.

So I am torn on this new Solarium sun deck.  It by itself is an amazing place. Plenty of chairs and there are some clam shell things and no children. Kind of similar to the Carnival Serenity deck.

However I understand there used to be all this enclosed Solarium space right up against the windows that had a direct oceanview with no obstructions.

20191124_182032.thumb.jpg.260c133fef9bf52378a2b6e21ff8be28.jpg

There is really none of that now. If you go to the size of the solarium there is but it's limited to maybe 10 or 15 chairs worth of loungers.

20191124_182310.thumb.jpg.1ced2f50d2fe9ac94a1ebccea5d6312c.jpg

I am looking forward to experiencing the solarium for the 1st time when we sail on her.  I am wondering how is the wind out there while the ship is moving?

I will test that for you at some point.  The front of the sun desk is glass panels all the way around so I feel that probably blocks the wind pretty well.  The panels were taller than me.
