Thanksgiving Side to Side: Brilliance to Oasis

As long as it’s not worse than “The Gift”....😬

The Gift at least has a plot..One Sky was just a medley of songs around a loose theme.

I've also found the sound at all the shows on Oasis to be on the loud side.  It's understandable in the Music Hall, but it was ear-bleeding loud there.  Aqua80 was very, very loud as well.  It's like they cranked up the sound levels to 10 at all of those.  CATS was the only one where the sound was at a reasonable level.

ISince we are docked at the downtown pier, we decided to go out into town for a while. Beside us is docked NCL Breakaway. Out in the bay, offshore, is the NCL Escape.  She is tendering her p

I promised Sabrina that I would do this, so here goes. First:  I am the worst live blogger EVER since I hate to take pix.  I DO realize that long, text review/live blogs are less effective b/c no

What a beautiful picture!!!!! Love the outfit.  

Thanks, Sweety !

I don’t know if I even mentioned it, but our meal at 150 (beef tenderloin for 2) was very marginal.  The beef was chewy and tasteless.  I have come to the conclusion that I am just “steaked out”.  I have never been a huge beef fan to begin with and in the past 9 days I have eaten more steak than I would normally consume  in a year.  I think I just need to steer clear of steak for a while. Maybe they will be more palatable if I keep them as a special treat.

Raye, i kind of agree with you about 150.. Honestly All the food on Oasis did not WOW me and I had the Unlimited package.. I just feel like more and more the food on Royal keeps going downhill.. I am going on a family cruise Dec 29th on Celebrity Edge.. I am curious to see how the food compares.. I already like that their casino is non smoking so who knows.. I Also really enjoyed Phoenix last week.. I was talking to one of the bartenders in music hall he also agreed the one on Quantum class ships is so much better but like you said Royal had to work with what it had and it is a step up from Dazzles.. How did you do in the Casino Yesterday? Hopefully still ahead.. Keep having fun. - Steph

Hey, Steph-

Truthfully, we have not been back to the casino since the first night. We walked through there yesterday morning but it was already so crowded plus I couldn’t tell which tables were open do we just kept moving. I have not felt the need to hang out in the casino this trip.  I

I imagine  a great deal of that had to do with our beautiful suite.  I just love being there !

For those of you who might care, I told photos of the bar menu in the Suites Lounge.

This is the Happy Hour menu available daily from 4:40-8 PM

I have the full service menu as well but need to clarify some info on this one and will publish it later 

Thank you, we are diamond and cruising next moth, can never remember what is available.

I need to go back and confirm this. If I’m not mistaken, these drinks are available all day (11-11) and not just 4:30-8 to person eligible for the suites lounge.  

Nope. Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages are available all day. The spirits selection is only available during happy hour.

Otherwise, spirits can be purchased (or beverage package used) at anytime from the bar.

(Standard disclaimer: Only Oasis class ships have a Suite Lounge bar that is open during non happy hour times. Other ships offer only items from the menu during happy hour.)

Yep.  You’re absolutely right. I couldn’t remember. Guess it’s been too long a “dry” spell for us !

@Rags1 it’s going to go be an “All Star” Genie team for the next few months. Israel  (starting Dec 8th), Smitha, and Allan F. All of them are experienced Genies, around for a very long time, and all have superb reviews. You basically cannot go wrong with any of them!  Unsure if they are keeping a 4th genie around. Maybe @WAAAYTOOO can inquire about that as I am curious too.

@WAAAYTOOO your Uber situation, that happened to us with Lyft in Fort Lauderdale. I was so mad! Like @SpeedNoodles, they charged us a $5 no show fee too and the guy didn’t even call. We were standing right there and saw him drive off! Anyway, I sent a complaint and they refunded me back my money and said they would follow up with the driver. 

We had two of those back to back at FLL on 11/23. First one blew right past us so he could claim he was there but we weren’t (turns out he’s using a fake name to collect a new driver bonus) and the second one never left the waiting lot as he was hoping we would cancel so he could collect the fee.

Came back from the casino a winner tonite !  Quad 3’s (4 of a kind for you non-players). Yippee !  This movie seems familiar to me (started out a winner on last weeks cruise.  By the end...not so much).  

At a cash game or at an UTH table? Anytime I get Quads at a cash game I can never get any value out of it.

Christmas decorations update :  there aren’t any.   Nothin’, nada, nunca. 
 

Joyce said that she’s never seen a ship not start decorating by this time. Not sure what’s going on. Maybe they have all new amplified Christmas decorations that will be on boarded when we debark

I didn’t though.  I was a chicken to prebet pocket  3’s.  I know.....you’re supposed to but I was a clucker 😪

I played UTH at one point... Playing by the book prior to the flop is very painful at times.

First time I ever played on Majesty a few years back I hit quads on a pocket pair. Well just say it was late at night and very colorful language was involved. Yup, dealer pulled off a straight flush with garbage.

Now that the table minimums have gone up so much it just become too large of a needed bankroll for my taste.
