Have a blast Tracey! Allure is amazing! I'm way jealous but look forward to your live report!

Have a Coney Island, a Manly Breakfast and a Labadoozie for me!

Wow!

I want your job Tracey! How fun for you. I realize this is work and a very serious job . I would like to know as much as you can tell us. I have been on RCL before but not a mega-ship. Looking forward to your postings.

I think the wines flights were between $12 and $18. If I remember correctly there were 4 glasses arranged on this holder. My husband definately thought it was worth the price.

and now that DCL has raised the single supplement to 100% of the second adult's fare, it's even more worthwhile to switch to RCCL
(and a lot of other cruise lines as well!!)

I don't really like feta in anything else.

Right, Jeff? Sounds wonderful! Amy has said No to the cruise but I haven't given up hope.

We are taking a little road trip with the kids on Saturday and I plan on playing the podcast from earlier this year about the Oasis. Yes, I am scheming!

Tracey, if possible, I would love some detailed info about the kids programs/nursery. If we are on the cruise, will have a 2 year old and a 4 yeard old at the time of cruise.

Hey Michael! I am quick in and quick out for this cruise so I am afraid I won't have time. I would have loved to meet up and share a laugh or two!!!

I will definitely be checking out the kids clubs very closely and will get as much info as I can on pricing etc.

I will also collect as much info on drink prices....especially at Vintages as it sounds like it will be a favorite with our group.

I have been watching Hurricane Isaac news closely....I must say after years of watching the Love Boat, this isn't the Isaac I planned on cruising with!

I have sailed and travelled so many times during hurricane season that I almost don't even think of it as an issue when I book. Clearly I have been lucky which is why it doesn't come to mind. So far, it doesn't seem like it will impact me too much, perhaps an itinerary change. But honestly that doesn't bother me too much as I wasn't that crazy about the itinerary anyways!

I have decided to fly into Fort Lauderdale and out of Miami to get a feel for each. I always try to fly in the day before a cruise starts and this one is no exception. I get in to FLL late tomorrow night and will be staying at a hotel close to the port. More to come on that after my stay!

I decided to fly out of Miami and took transfers through the cruise line for $30

I really should think about getting packed....athough that would mean I have to finish unpacking from my last trip!!

Change of Plans

Well it appears Isaac had other plans for me this week!! The Allure is not able to safely make it back to port tomorrow and will be delayed until Tuesday. My flight into Fort Lauderdale today can't be changed and I am afraid if I don't at least get there I will have trouble getting a flight on Monday.

Haven't figured out what I will do yet, beyond fly into Fort Lauderdale tonight as planned. I will probably stay put and try to stay dry!!

I can't tell you how many trips I have taken this exact week in previous years--this is the first time my plans have ever been disrupted by a hurricane. Guess it's about time!!

RCL has been great in getting notifications out, I was lucky our rep called me and gave me a heads up before it hit the internet. RCL head office has emailed me, called my home and my cell to notify me. Apparently there will be some sort of compensation arranged onboard, will post what they do. They also said to call and make alternate arrangements if I wasn't able to sail Tuesday.

There has also been a slight itinerary change...unfortunately we are now going to Nassau--it really seems I can't excape this port!!!! Oh well, at least I can pay a visit to my friends at the Atlantis Casino!

oh no!! so sorry Tracey!!

i guess those people 'stuck' on board are getting a lot of bang for their cruise buck!!

we were affected by the hurricane that hit new york last year....
we were at WDW....DS and his wife were on a different flight than us (as they'd gone to chile first)..

anyway, when i originally booked them, i had the choice of going through miami or new york...
so since it was hurricane season, i chose new york - just to be safe..

well who knew that a hurricane would hit new york instead of miami..

so i quickly had to get their flights changed to miami (and had to pay through the nose to do it)..

anyway, they made it out and back home in time for school to start..

and the rest of us left as planned two days later, heading for a post-hurricane new york city (to see book of mormon)..

i hope isaac gets out of the way fast and you can get on board and start enjoying the oasis!!

Just wondering if you made it to the port alright and what you are doing for hotel for the additional 2 nights. Hope they are on schedule to bring the ship in on Tuesday.
