I'll probably be more excited when I get back from Europe and need something to cheer me up from my post vacation blues(and I have a feeling it's gonna hit me hard). Don't want to pass up the chance of getting a good deal on a great cruise with a bunch of fun people. If I do go through with it this will be my first cruise ever!
that's great!!!! it really is a very good price!

it's not my first cruise, but it's my first time on the Oasis (and RCCL for that matter)......and add to that first time with other disers!!! how exciting!!

Yeah that price blew me away which is why I'm doing it! I even booked a balcony room for Central Park which seemed great for a balcony room. I can't do ocean view since I'm afraid it might make me ill(the only time I ever got motion sickness was from a boat in choppy water granted it was a small fishing boat but the ocean still makes me queasy now. Makes me feel bad since my husband loves boats).

I am concerned that I booked this last night but have not received a confirmation number yet just an e-mail from Dreams saying they are passing my information along to RCCL. Just want to make sure I'm in for this cruise since tomorrow is the 4th, don't want to miss out!

Thanks! I don't doubt Tracey!

I just realized I can't count, tomorrow is actually only the 3rd! I guess I'm a bit stressed out having to leave at the end of the week I'm actually relieved it's only tuesday the 2nd though it will be the 3rd soon. I'm so not ready but I have to be by friday evening, excited and scared all at the same time!

Since I'm still most likely doing this it seems and I haven't been to Flordia since 2007, do you think a 2 or 3 day stay before the cruise at Universal and a 2 day stay at Disney World after the cruise doable? Would it be best to reverse the order? Mostly interested in doing Harry Potter and the new Fantasyland, as well as the new attractions at Hollywood studios. I may only be able to afford 2 days at either so if that's the case which stay should I do Universal or Disney World? Since they are adding the new Transformers 3D at Universal I'm actually leaning towards Universal at the moment.

Thoughts or ideas are welcome!

We were at universal and islands in May. It took us a day for both parks. Now we didn't do all the major coasters. If you are only going to do WWoHP, I think a day would be fine.

Can't comment on new FL, as I haven't been there....yet.

Have a good time!

Hi All,

I have had something important come up during the time of this cruise so I must cancel this trip. I am so disappointed but I know you will all have a blast!

Been watching a bunch of YouTube videos of this ship and have been getting excited!

I realized though I have never Cruised before or have ever been to any part of the Caribbean. So I have a lot to plan, thankfully I have awhile till the cruise but any advice or directions to a thread to help with first time RCCL cruisers?

Any help is great!

Boy, broad questions, anyone?

I don't know that there's a thread here yet on the DIS yet, but you can check out that "other" place, www.cruisecritic.com, which has a whole forum for RCCL. The folks there can be harsh (it's not always the most friendly community, and people have been known to refer to it as "the dark place") but there's a TON of information there.

Feel free to ask any questions, I (and I'm sure a ton of others) will be happy to answer!

One thing I will say is, I've told a few folks I'm taking this cruise, and they all either have sailed on the Oasis of the Seas, or know someone who has, and they all RAVE about the ship. I think, for me, this will be the first time the ship is actually the destination, not the ports.

Sayhello

Sadly, I have to cancel this cruise. I would have loved meeting the Podcast team and other DISers, but I just can't do it next year and reach my goal of moving back to Florida in 2014. I'm sure I'll be able to do another DIS-sponsored event at some point.

I'm sure you'll all have a great time and I'll be watching for trip reports from you!

Its over a year from the cruise. I would like to add a week at the world but would like to wait and see if there are any free dining or discounts that come up for that time of year. If I sign up for my free transfer now, will it be possible to change it later?
In addition I Keep getting 500 - Internal Server error when trying to access the page to book the transfers. I have tried multiple browsers and computers. Any ideas?

Thanks... Can't wait for the Cruise!

My advice is to wait to sign up for your transfers until you know for sure what you want to do either pre or post-cruise. They will still be free for you even if you wait.

As far as the error goes make sure you just enter the number portion of your reservation (i.e. 12345 NOT DC-RC-12345). Also make sure you are not copying and pasting your password into the form - sometimes that can bring over extra characters.

If you still need assistance logging in you can email me at John@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com and I will be happy to help - just make sure you include your Dreams Reservation ID number in the email.
