Odyssey of the Seas in Pictures - Sept. 2021

I'm taking a little bit of a different approach to this trip report since it's almost a month overdue.  I've been busy.... cruising.  It's such a great time to cruise so I'm making up for lost time by spending a lot of time on cruise ships which is slowing down my posting.

@Matt was also on board for this cruise and he was posting reports from this cruise live so I didn't feel the need to run a simultaneous live blog while he was doing such a great job representing our cruise.  Consequently I'm going to simplify this thread and keep it more about photos of Odyssey with less blabbing about my cruise.

As I create this thread I am waiting in my hotel room for yet another cruise to start but if I don't get this going I may never will so without further delay here is Odyssey in pictures.

Boarding the ship was a breeze and I was quickly in Coastal Kitchen grabbing lunch and waiting for cabins to be ready.

Bread first...

Wedge salad.

Waiting between courses I jumped on the ship wifi and got connected.  So happy to see Odyssey uses O3b Voom which is a newer satellite technology.  SES/O3b has some capacity issues at the moment while they wait for more satellites to launch so not all new ships can get on this service at the moment.

While eating lunch I started making reservations on board.

So good to be back on board eating cruise food again!

Odyssey has the chat feature available in the Royal app.

Cabin for this cruise was 10328 on the aft.  My SeaPass card was waiting for me by the door.

The standard balcony cabin on Quantum class is one of my favorite across the fleet.

A lot of storage.

The bathroom on Quantum class is one of the best in the fleet for a non-suite regular cabin.  It's one of the things I've always liked about this class.

Diamond Plus and above upgraded bathroom amenities.

oy-2109-16.jpg

New soap on board.

Mini beverage cooler built in.

The cabin itself is an extended version of a regular balcony cabin.  There is at least six feet of space between the sofa and the balcony door.

This aft balcony is extended and quite deep.  Odyssey is one the first Quantum class ships to feature regular balcony cabins on the aft and I was thrilled to score one for my first cruise on her.

eMuster is so easy and quick I forgot to take pictures.  Into an elevator:

Elevators have UV sanitizers.

As we moved closer to sail away I noticed these reminders showing up on some people's doors.

oy-2109-31.jpg

Beverage packages on board.

oy-2109-32.jpg

Playmakers.  What a view.

oy-2109-33.jpg

Water fountains closed for protocols.

oy-2109-34.jpg

As sail away commenced I went up to the Solarium.  Move on the solarium later, here are some quick pics as I moved around the ship.

Art imitating life.  Very realistic.

On her sisters this pool is covered.  Since Odyssey is meant to sail more often in warmer waters this pool has been opened to the sky.

On the first night they offer an event to highlight and showcase the $7M Two70° venue.  When sailing Quantum class I tend to watch for this event and always try to attend.

Virtual Orchestra.

New graphics and video I've not seen before on other Quantum class ships.

Oceanides is a new production designed specifically for the robo screens.  A lot of effort went into the making of this production and it's something that has to be experienced live as the robo screen move in all dimensions.  At the moment it's exclusive to Odyssey of the Seas.

oy-2109-60.jpg

It's a story of pearl diver who descends and comes across a group of sea nymphs.  It was all shot with real performers in sealed water tanks that rotate and move in sync with the robo screens that rotate and move.
