    Thanks Jim! I guess Val & I can survive on two bottles if we ration it carefully.

    Sure, I'll de-lurk. My wife's been urging (read: nagging) me to add our names to the list, so here it goes: Roger, Patti, daughters Brianna and Carly.

    We have the good news/bad news going here. Paul got a job at WDW!!! The bad part of that good news is that he won't be having a week off in August to do this cruise.

    Now I have to decide if I can spend the $$ to go by myself anyway, or if I should save money and cancel. :sad2: :sad1:

    The following letter was sent out to everyone today!

    Good Morning!
    Can you believe it is almost time for our cruise? Seems like a long time ago when we first started discussing this sailing! Over the next couple of weeks we will be busy in preparation for our sailing aboard the Oasis. We are in the process of finalizing some exciting activities and will be making announcements in the very near future.

    There are a couple of things I would like to take care of in the mean time. Many of you have asked about My Time Dining, I now have the process in place and I am able to start booking My time for our group. For those of you not aware, My Time dining is Royal Caribbean’s version of Freestyle dining. The premise is you can book My Time and dine when you want as opposed to booking a first or second seating. I will say it is not as “my time” as it sounds as there may be availability issues when you want to dine. You can book your preferred time in advance via the pre cruise planner or once on the ship. You can also just show up at the restaurant and they will seat you at the next available table. A couple of things to know with My time, you may or may not have the same serving team each night. You may or may not have dining companions. We do not link you to another reservation with My time for dining, but you can still go to the restaurant and dine together. Also you will have to prepay your gratuities, $84 per person, with My Time. I have used it on my last 2 RCL cruises and enjoyed the flexibility, however I realize it is not for everyone.

    Many of you have asked when the Podcast Team will be dining so you can be seated near them. The Podcast Team will be on My Time dining and may or may not eat in the dining room depending on their schedule. There will be no way to seat you next to members of the Podcast Team as they will not have a set dining time or table.

    If anyone would like to change to My Time, let me know and I will work our group rep to get it done. Also if you are travelling with another stateroom and not choosing My Time, let me know so I can be sure you are linked together on first or second seating. If not linked with a specific table, we will be trying our best to have RCL sit everyone with other group members.

    Now for some fun stuff! I am working on planning a Wine and/or Martini Tasting exclusively for our group members. Preliminary pricing looks like $20 per person and this will be collected by RCL. I do not have any details as far as day or time, at this time just checking interest for total numbers.

    I am also working on a private all access tour for our group. This 3.5 hour tour is $150 charged by Royal Caribbean and is very limited in numbers. Children are also welcome to attend. Again, I do not have specifics and at this time and want to check interest. As described by RCL “This tour will grant guests an all-access pass to various areas deemed "back of the house", such as the Galley, the Bridge, the Engine Control Room, Laundry and more. Guests will be able to step inside the crew's shoes and gain insight and knowledge on what really goes on behind-the-scenes.”

    If you could please reply to my email if any of the following apply to you...

    -You want to change to My time Dining (or any other dining time change)
    -You want to link your reservation with another stateroom (not available with My Time dining)
    -You would like to participate in a wine and/or martini tasting. Please reply with preference for one or if you would like both, also how many people.
    -You would like to participate in the all access tour. Please reply with total number of guests

    We will be sending payment due reminders with a link to the payment form over the next week. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    I wanted to clarify about the wine and/or martini tasting. There would be one tasting for wine and one tasting for martinis if there is enough interest. There will not be one that is wine and martini's!

    Wondering if anybody knows if the Oasis cabin doors are steel. Do people decorate their doors the way many people do on DCL?
