Riddle me this....

What possible purpose could a “stopper” be on a bidet ?

That little “stick thing” in the back is a stopper plunger (not sure what the proper plumbarian term is).

Maybe I’ve been using it wrong all this time ! Why would you ever need to fill that bowl up with water ?

Unsauced I'd imagine be a simple request if everything is made fresh onboard.

One thing that might already have sauce from the cooking process would be the ribs.

@AshleyDillo know you never asked about no sauce but any insight you could give.

Brisket is NOT pre-sauced.  Pulled pork and burnt ends are mixed with sauce and on the food line with the sides.  The poultry gets mopped with sauce at the end after they pull it from the warmer and put it on the grill..so you can ask for the turkey leg, chicken wings, and smoked chicken not to be sauced.

I did not ask if they could do the pork or burnt ends without sauce.

So we did the BBQ. It was good but not great. For ship’s BBQ it was decent. The mac’n cheese was awful.  They use some kind of cheese whiz or something.  Yuck.  The nanner puddin’ thing was ok. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t do it again.

I had the pulled pork and Dan had the brisket.  Ashley is right-the brisket wasn’t presauced. 
 

Ones thing’s for sure - they don’t skimp on the portions. It doesn’t look it from the pictures but those sandwiches are huge !
 

Having it delivered to the room was sweet !

I won. Once. That’s not really “winning” yet.  We walked through the casino when leaving the TTE but it didn’t look like any of the tables were open yet. At least neither of the UTH tables were going. E just came back to the room.  Sorry you had.  Bad experience.  That leaves a bad taste for a long time. 
 

We definitely will be trying the BBQ. I think we will ask Joyce to have some delivered.  I don’t really feel like going out in the hot sun. I wish it wasn’t “presauced”. I generally don’t care for BBQ sauce.  It’s almost always too sweet for me. 

Oh Raye you are in luck.. Do you like Brisket? If so that's no pre sauced at all.. It has a dry rub on it but not sauced.. The sauce was placed on the table so people could put al little or as much as they wanted.. The Ribs were pre sauced but the Brisket wasn't and was tasty I recommend it.. Also if you like bananas please get the Banana pudding it was sooo good. I hate Royal's desserts but I loved this one.. Since I had the dining package I went there about once a day and just ordered pudding lol. Also I am curious how your Giovanni's experience will go.. I thought it was AWFUL.. My friends and I left there so sick. Not from overeating just from the food not tasting very good.. Crunchy Risotto, cream sauce that tasted broken, my friends ordered Tuna that was full of too much garlic just not a good experience I wish they redid Giovanni's like they are doing for Allure so you will have to tell me how your experience goes.. As for the Casino yeah I was frustrated the funny thing is everyone I talked to or played with said the same thing that they just keep loosing and loosing.. I literally left the table every day with no money and I at least usually 1 day of a 7 night cruise make some money.. But I have a 3 night Navigator coming up Dec 13 so hopefully I will do better.. Keep me posted on everything and I am glad you are having such an awesome time in an awesome suite.. - Steph 

 

Well I just read your above post after I wrote this lol.. I agree with you about the Macaroni not good.. I did enjoy 150 we went there twice.. Let me know what you think. - Steph

Today was another non-stop barrage of loud live band music.  Now....that did not stop Dan and I from taking a heavenly long nap but it never stopped all afternoon.  In fact, the music is still going strong but it’s piped music and not a live band.  Maybe they’re just on break.

Who says only Twangbot can take a great sunset shot !  Happy Dan got this one out our window.

We just got out of One Sky.  My opinion...👎

It wasn’t terrible and it didn’t help that I knew virtually none of the music. 

Great... seems like the consensus so far. I believe Matt thought it was also disjointed and labeled it a "skip" on his Oasis review.

I was not a fan of Blue Planet on Allure (also very disjointed in my opinion), so I'm not expecting much with this show. Not a knock on the talent of the performers, just the way they produced the show. 

I can't wait to see Flight on Symphony and Columbus eventually on Harmony!

To me, it seemed like they tried to take advantage of the success of Flight (Symphony) and add a touch of Blue Planet. The result falls flat, IMO. Honestly, I don’t ever expect any kind of plot to any of these shows but it seemed very disjointed and again, the music was utterly unfamiliar.  I also agree that this is NOT the fault of the performers.  This show is just a hot mess.

However, on a positive note, we just got back from seeing Phoenix, and I cannot say enough GOOD things about that show. They were really good.  I would go back and see them again in a minute.  I am not as impressed with the Music Hall on Oasis as I was with the one on Anthem, but they did the best they could with the space they had.  It’s a sight more useful now than it was as Dazzles.

Also, a huge bit of news, Dan and I finally met the Twangbot.  He seemed very real.  Almost human-like.  A very advanced bot, indeed.  He sat with us at the concert.  It was quite an honor for us.😁😍
