Jeff, can you add me to the list? As it is also the start of school for us, my husband and kids won't be coming, so I'll be bring my dad and mom (David and Tina). They've never cruised before, so we're looking forward to it!
You'll be on the next update Leah. Looking forward to chatting with you about your second week in California. Just listened to the two podcasts and I know it was really fun for the whole family.
Yeah, you scared me for a minute! In 6 weeks I'll be in India, and I started to think I had REALLY messed up my calendars!!!
That Aug 30 disembarkation s only for the truly wicked, and involves a plank...
For some reason I can't recall Dustin's DISBoards screen name. Anybody got it on the tip of their fingers?
It's a really hard one. Dustin.
Thanks Tobi - no wonder I couldn't remember it.

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.
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:
Woo Hoo - just booked pre/post hotel stays. Great rate from Dreams.
Also booked limo to/from airport!
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?
Jeff, what company are you using for your limo service? I need to book one.
It's a great day to be alive!!!
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.
We just got back from WDW (Saturday) and now I only have to wait 54 more days till the cruise. Now if I just could get out of going to work...
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!!
