    Thanks for the info John.

    Is there a deck plan available for these ships so we can see where these different cabin categories are located?

    Answered my own question. Google is your friend. :surfweb:

    Here is a link to the Oasis Deck Plans on the Royal Caribbean site.

    We originally were looking at late June/early July sailing but we were having trouble getting appropriate inventory for that sail date; specifically we could not get any staterooms that slept 3 or more in the lesser expensive categories.

    This is the reason for the delay in getting the information out. We had to find a sailing in the summer that not only had good pricing but had the inventory we wanted to accommodate our families sailing at that time.

    We talk about this in this weeks show.

    Thanks John. :thumbsup2

    Spent some time looking at these deck plans and found them very intricate. Hard to follow at times, but in the end wound up requesting a D7. We went for looking at the ocean rather than the (unique) view of the atrium area because we like being on a ship more than being in a city. :3dglasses

    Rats, this conflicts with the start of the school year where I teach. Unless there's a major change in the 2013-14 school year calendar (which hasn't shifted much in the 8 years I've been there), that's my first week of classes.

    :(

    On the plus side, this means that I get to do lots more research on How to Get My Disney Fix for that summer.

    Yep, I think we will need to skip due to school starting as well.

    But one question on the deck plans. The color for D4 and D7 is very similar, so it is hard to tell the difference. Are there any D7 that connect, or only D4?

    Hey Everyone! Just wanted to let you know I do have your requests and I am working on them. RCCL has a great online system for groups and I am learning its little quirks!

    Didn't want you all to think I am ignoring you!!! Confirmations should be out by the end of the day tomorrow!

    So excited to be doing something new and can't wait for this cruise.

    Nice, get to celebrate my birthday in St. Thomas and finally get to go to a DIS event. Only problem it's over a year away. Anyone know how to modify the space time continuum?

    Rats! We were thinking about changing our Aug 2013 Fantasy sailing to this one but with it overlapping with the start of school we are out. Bummer. :sad1:
