The weird thing is i never changed anything...in one instance i don't get a military discount and the other i do, but it still doesn't add up mathematically.  

I had the same daft pricing for the 8th December sailing price without C&A number for solo £990 price with number £1500 🤨🤷🏻‍♂️ Anyway they sorted it eventually..

Some More Photos From Cruise Critic.

Not trying to shoot the messenger, but whomever posted it on CC is not the author of the photos. What they do is search Instagram for photos posted by shipyard workers and/or cruise ship employees.

You can do this yourself if you rely on geolocation of Instagram posts limited to the area surrounding the Cadiz shipyard.

What bugs me is these folks dont credit the person that posted the photo.

Not your fault @Jaymac Radio and I dont blame you one bit. Just pointing out the reality of the source of these photos.

Most of them are from Lloyd Marchand.  Not sure if he is the original photographer but I have noticed through social media that Lloyd posts most of the dry dock and new ship construction photos.

I'm also going on Dec 8th! I snagged a "no solo supplement special", via Sharla at MEI travel.  I also booked the Key (again), VOOM, extra ice time, seating at shows, swift carry on luggage delivery and breakfast on debarkation day... YOLO!

I am looking forward to trying the barbecue restaurant, going to the dive and ice shows, and skipping the main dining room. I must have dinner in Old San Juan! I'll try all the slides, because they are there.. but just once. Same with the zip-line!  It will be my first time on Oasis class, and my first time solo. I usually cruise jam-packed-full-ship on holiday sailings with my husband and sons. 

The Diamond Lounge being moved to deck 4... meh. But it's on Deck 4 on Anthem, and I like that lounge, it has pool tables nearby (for my teenage boys to be occupied during happy hour), and it's an easy walk to the dining rooms..  So I promise to hold my opinion of it's new placement until AFTER the experience, instead of dreading something beforehand! I see myself ordering room service coffee in the morning though, instead of trekking to the Diamond Lounge for it.

I'm looking forward to viewing @Matt 's compass from his Thanksgiving Trip! It's great to see what they will do on Day 1 before I board, and if they have "night riding" on the flowrider.  Some items are posted on the app already like daily flowrider times; but not the open skating times.

Will Royal provide a video of the dry dock work after she has been amped and back at sea?  Like a video showing us the work that it took to amplify her?

If they don't, there's enough people from these boards on her 1st cruise out to create a feature-length film of her!

This is a cool thread.  I love seeing the how it all goes together.  I have tried to find technical data on these ships (center of mass, center of buoyancy, righting moment, etc) but there's little out there.  Has anyone ever run across that level of technical information?

Are they updating cabins during this?

That is the million dollar question. lol

The past two year, it has varied.  Some Adventure cabins got a refresh, Mariner and Indy did not, Navigator also got refresh.  I have not seen anything about Oasis cabins but I sure hope that the answer is yes.

praying for WOW bands!  even if they can only be used for purchasing power.  I don't care abt the doors.  I think they would be so much more convent than the card every time I order a drink or go to a specialty restaurant, or buy something on board.

i agree! we want the use of the wow bands with or without door opening functionality (though it would be nice to have that too).

I hope at the very least they add the bedroom wall to the Grand Suite 1 bedrooms like they have on Harmony and Symphony.  I hate how both sides have to share a tv on a wall between the 2 areas that’s only separated by a curtain on Oasis and Allure.  Then you have to leave the curtain partially open and both side have to watch the one tv ..... fist pic is O and A ..... second pic is H and S setup for GS1 to show what I mean.
