Hello! We're part of this cruise also. All along I didn't even know about this thread - but it explains why there's been no activity in the sticky thread on the cruise board. Anyway, it will be myself (Mike), DW (Kathleen), DS (Cameron, 11), and DD (Kaitlyn, 8). We were originally booked the DCL Fantasy (while on board the Dream last August) for the exact same dates as this cruise, but bumped that reservation to the same time in 2014 and booked this cruise instead (for a lot less $$ ). We've been on a RCCL cruise once before - Freedom of the Seas in August 2009 for the (sorry, Mickey) Nickelodoen Family Cruise. We can't wait to check out the Oasis. We've booked our excursions for Nassau and St. Thomas, but haven't decided what to do on St. Maarten yet. However, currently leaning toward just getting a taxi and spending the day at Le Galion beach, as it seems to be the best for families. Unfortunately, it seems most of the ship's excursions go to Orient Beach and I'm pretty sure DW wants to avoid that one.

A couple of questions....

Will there be a "formal" night on this cruise? If so, how dressy do people get? Is there anything that gentlemen need a jacket for?

Are there laundry facilities on the ship?

There is a formal night and a semi formal I believe. I found those that participated were more formal than DCL. However, we do not partake and I found plenty of places to have dinner that didn't require dress up clothes! A jacket will depend, a couple of the specialty restaurants suggest one. I believe Chefs Table it is mandatory.

There is a laundry service, but not facilities like DCL.

I believe there will be 2 formal nights.

According a to recent "Cruise Compass" (Royal Caribbean's equivalent to DCL's Navigator) for the exact same itineray we are doing, formal nights were on nights 2 & 6. They also have a "smart casual" night - which seems to be their version of "semi-formal" (although according to the link above, seems just plain formal to me) . Not sure if it is okay to link to Cruise Critic boards...but here is the link to the thread with the Compass (i figure it will be blocked if not):

Not sure about self-serve laundry facilities. You can always stuff to your stateroom host laundry service.


Laundry service prices:

I see that one night we have a group dinner at Giovani's Table. How dressy is that place? Should I pack a sport coat?

Also, do I need to tell Tracey what time we would prefer to dine?

We booked FL Tours through the Dreams website for the cruise.

BTW, talked to some folks this weekend who will be cruising with you next year. We may be interested in joining you.

Hi Jeff, it will be somewhat casual as well. Especially since we bought it out for the night! Khakis and a collared shirt would work here. I am still back and forth with RCL on a few things...the timing of dinner at Giovanni's is one of them!

It is always a little stressful dealing with events departments prior to sailing, but somehow we get onboard and it all magically works out!!

IMPORTANT - Closing out transfers 7/8/2013

Hi Folks

Just want you to be aware that we are closing out transfers on 7/8/2013 so we can get a final count to the bus company and work out the details.

If you want transfers - and haven't signed up already - you can do so here http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com...se10_start.cfm until Midnight EST on Monday 7/8/2013.

Once we have a final count and details worked out I will be emailing everyone with a schedule for the bus.

Thanks
John

Thanks for the reminder! I've got it on my calendar and will try hard to make sure I'm done with running/walking and chores before then.
