Oasis of the Seas July 29 - August 5

Yestetday morning we went to Johnny Rockets (breakfast sandwich and eggs my way). 

After breakfast we wandered around on deck 5. Some of the shops were having sales and the big one that they were promoting were Invicta watches for up to 75% off. Mom bought a couple of shirts (2 for $30). 

We sat at Starbucks and the Captain ended up sitting at the table next to us. He was friendly and spoke with us. 

Later we sat on our balcony and enjoyed the sun and watching the basketball court and flow riders.

We were late for lunch in CK so we tried the Windjammer. Maybe it was the day we went,  but we found the choices and quality to be lacking. I found it to be better on the Allure.

At 3:30, we went to the Aqua Theatre to watch "A Wrinkle In Time." Mom decided she wanted popcorn ($2.95 for a small container). Before the movie began, we were entertained by the aqua performers who were practicing. 

It was the second formal night. Mom had the shrimp cocktail and I had the risotto (I apologize but I forgot a picture of the menu). For our main, we both had the lobster tail and our waiter even brought us another ?. Our dessert of choice was baked Alaska. 

We went to see the 8:30 performance of Frozen In Time. We sat in the second row (middle) and really enjoyed it. 

Before heading back to the room,  we stopped in at the suite lounge for a drink. There were still some guests finishing up dinner in CK but the lounge side was pretty empty.

So we are currently at the Premiere "Party" for "Like Father." They made it seem more exciting than it is. There's no DJ and the "delicious treats" are popcorn and cotton candy for $2.95 each.There is face painting and Fiona though!

I wouldn't exactly call it a pre-party as advertised ?Have heard many making comments "where's the party?"

Correction for Royal... Rated "MA" for Mature Audiences. I should work for Royal...?

They did announce that it was M for mature audiences A little swearing doesn't bother me, but I'm sure some parents wouldn't like their kids to hear it! So why have face painting and balloons which are activities for young kids then?  ?

Yesterday we were in Cozumel and wanted to get off the ship and shop before it got too hot. We have been to Cozumel and have done several tours so we didn't have one planned. We had a bagel and some fruit for breakfast in the suite lounge.

Around 9 we took a taxi to the shopping area and we were dropped off at Los Cincos Soles. Here we bought some vanilla and earrings. 

We walked to a few other shops for some souvenirs and Alex and Ani bracelets before going back to the ship.

It was a busy day in Cozumel - 6 ships were in port (Liberty was docked next to us).

We had lunch in CK. I had the Mediterranean wedge and flatbread while mom had the tomato soup and grilled shrimp and spinach salad. All was very good. It was also very quiet in there.

Ooh, I'm just being facetious and technical because it's my job. "M" is not a movie or tv rating.? ...and yes, f words and face painting may not mix well.

But it’s not a video gammmnmmmmmmmmme! (I was waiting for that post btw)

Have you seen some of the phone video games out there now? More or less "Bold and the Beautiful" mixed with Harlequin Romance style choose-your-own-adventure stories. My daughter played one of those for a bit, I just smh. ?

Sailaway from Cozumel took place during our dinner in CK. It was amazing to watch how the Carnival ship turned around as well as our ship. 

Dinner was great as always. For appetizers we chose escargot (yes again) and wild mushroom consomme. Our mains were the braised short rib for me and crab crusted flounder for mom. We both had creme brulee for dessert.

After dinner we went to the showing of "Like Father" in the Aqua Theatre.

Well our last day has almost come to an end. ?

We had a fantastic week. The staff in CK were wonderful.  Our room attendants were great and we were spoiled by the CLS and amenities that come with Sky Class. 

One perk is luggage valet and we're looking forward to not having to worry about our luggage until we land in Detroit. 

I will end with a few last pictures and a link to the periscope I did from our balcony this afternoon. ?

I don't know why, but it really bugs me that RC charges $3 for a container of popcorn.  

Likely the additional cost of clean up personnel for the kids who let the stuff fly everywhere.  Popcorn fight on the pool deck?  Why not? No parents around to say otherwise...

In an Elevator? Popcorn fight!  In a hot tub?  Popcorn fight!

If it were free they couldn't make enough and places like hot tubs would be full of it.
