Yes, please and thank you.

 

Ok, time to post compasses. 

I will post them one day per post and give some thoughts on what we did do, and what we didn't get around to

 

I am missing the nighttime activities for Day 6

 

Oasis ships use 6 pages to fit in all the activities.

Pages 5 & 6 are the evening activities

Day 1 - Embark on a Journey of a lifetime.

 

Obviously boarding day, we wanted to have lunch in suite. No luck

Had lunch at Chops, Dinner at Izumi, and watched the Aqua Show. 

Twice for me. I actually did a Periscope, not sure how it came out.

Day 2 - Make Yourself at Home

 

Breakfast in CK, lunch at Johnny Rockets, dinner at CP150

Jay stopped by dinner to verify we were coming to Mama Mia. Said no, we'd like to go tomorrow.

Also went to M&M and started Progressive Trivia

Played Cards Against Humanity in Dazzles, then pizza at Sorrento's to close the evening

Day 3 - Relax at Sea (yea, right)

 

Pages 5 and 6 aren't scans, they are pictures, so a little harder to read

Room service for breakfast (wasn't good), lunch at Chops and dinner was the in room fiasco

Saw Mama Mia and the Comics, we missed Love & Marriage

Day 4 - Escape From the Ordinary

 

Tried room service for breakfast again, no better

lunch at Sabor, Dinner Chops (Pat and I only, this was when Laura wasn't feeling well)

We were supposed to do Ice Games, but opted for the Bob Marley tribute in Boleros instead

Due to Progressive Trivia, we were unable to do Master Sea Chef. That's a shame, saw it on Serenade and it's a lot of fun

Day 5 - Relax at Sea (again)

 

Breakfast at Johnny Rockets, Pinnacle Lunch at Sabor (solo, Laura didn't want to go), Giovanni's for dinner

We bailed on the Juggler and missed the 50's and 60's party on the Promenade

Day 6 - Relax at Sea (remember, no compass for evening activities)

 

Lunch was pizza in the suite, Dinner was at Sabor

Went to Top Tier (even brought Pat 😉)

We once again bailed on the Headliner, Stephanie Parker. I think she did a Whitney Houston set.

This was also the day the 10 drink punchcard showed up

Pat and I finished the night in Dazzles with a very large group for Cards Against Humanity

And of course 1am pizza at Sorrentos

Day 7 - Ready for a Sea Day, Royal Caribbean Style?

 

Stir fry in CK (dissapointing), Dinner was Chops, again

This was the only night Jay did not have a scheduled event for us, so we didn't miss anything

Of course, we could have seen Stephanie Parker or Ice Games😉

We did watch the fountain show from our balcony

Pat and I spent the evening in the Champagne Bar drinking Martini's and an Old Fashioned.

And finished with pizza and the 70's party

Seeing that picture of Bella has been the highlight of a frustrating work from home day. Plus, no weekends plans besides sanitizing the house ad nauseum.  😩
 

Thank Buddha for Netflix and books.

Thanks for your thread, since returning from the Vision out of PR I have not been out about very much, keeping a low profile.  I was doing a b-2-b-2-b and after the first week I was left high and dry (excuse the pun), and thanks to my son and very professional conciser they were able to book a flight back to Mytle Beach the next day. A little explanation, we were off the coast of St.Thomas and I called my son on my flip phone which was still working and told him my plight, then gave the phone to the conciser and they worked together to print off my ticket and a boarding pass.

Day 8 - Relax at Sea (I see a pattern forming)

 

Day of the Birthday Party

I think we ate in CK for lunch and didn't go to dinner. 

We were scheduled for Samba Grill and Barricade Boys (Le Miz tribute) Didn't do either.

We also didn't do Battle of the Sexes and Crazy Quest in Studio B

Day 9 - Escape From the Ordinary

 

Lunch at Coastal Kitchen and dinner at Izumi

Izumi was all about bad communication that night. Brown rice, missing eggs, more veg. Crazy, and the proteins suffered.

We were supposed to go to Dancing with the Stripes Game Show, but once again passed

I will add that when we typically bailed on the evening entertainment, we tended to catch something in the Aqua Theater

Day 9 it was the fountain show

Day 10 - Escape From the Ordinary (they're just getting lazy now)

 

Lunch was Johnny Rockets and Dinner was Pinnacle dinner in Samba. I may have picked up a souvenir. 😁

They didn't seem to care since they were scrapping the concept in a few more days. No idea, now.

This was also filet night in CK, so I got Pat a reservation. We were later told the LA invited Pat to come with us, but he didn't want to. Pat actually hosted a Captains Table with the Chief Engineer of Serenade on last years crossing, and Karen was also the LA on that voyage. It was actually Pat's loss as we sat with @twangster and one of the Engineering staff. Lots of interesting talk.

Our evening entertainment was the comics in the Amber Theater. Pat and I went.

Day 11 - Welcome to Malaga 

 

Pat and I had lunch in Cordoba, Laura found nachos in the Jammer. Dinner was Johnny Rockets

Jay had us scheduled for Blue Planet, and I went solo. Pat's alergies were acting up from being in Cordoba and he went to bed.

Day 12 - A Journey of a Lifetime (Deja Vu)

Now we are typically jaded and always snicker at the 'Vacation of a lifetime' spiel, but this trip was kind of like that for us since I selected STAR class. And as I have said, it was 'one and done' for us. It just wasn't a good value.

 

It was a lazy last day, packing and the like. It was also complicated by evolving news from Spain.

Lunch was Johnny Rockets and dinner was Windjammer. On Laura's actual birthday, no less.  I'm still hearing about it.

We were supposed to go to Izumi again, but we snacked in the afternoon, and that wasn't happening.

Our show was Frankie & the Dreamers. Like I said earlier, it was fun

BTW, we completed our 14 day Self Quarantine today. 👍

 

All I have left to comment on is the flight home and my overall summary of STAR Class.

 

I'll try and get to that tomorrow.

 

Good night
