Sail Date: Nov 2009
Cabin: Large Inside Stateroom

Pre-cruise - I originally booked airfare and transfers with my cruise but found a good deal on airfare so canceled the original and went down to Fort Lauderdale the day before. I HIGHLY recommend this if at all possible. I did this on my last cruise and it is so nice to relax and not have to worry about getting there the day of the cruise (I am SO glad I did not have the Thu cruise since there were airline troubles all morning and afternoon). I just hopped on a shuttle and got to the port around 10:45. Oh, I flew in from E to W so I got to see the Oasis just before landing. HUGE!!!

Embarkation - Everything went pretty smooth. Got to the port around 10:45am. I had a little problem trying to figure out how to get to the check-in location after dropping off the luggage to the porter. There was a green line to follow but it was hidden by some baggage carts. I think I was onboard around 11:15am. Please note the bars were open but lunch does not start until 12 noon and they said the rooms would be available around 1:30pm.

Meet & Greet - There is a section within this website for "meet & greets". RCCL does not support an official meet & greet for a 5-day cruise but we arranged to meet at the Scooner Bar. If you decide to go on a cruise, I highly recommend seeking this out. I have so much fun with the people I met on the boards. They really helped make the cruise awesome.

Cabin Review

Large Inside Stateroom

Cabin K

Cabin 8049 - This is an interior stateroom. I went solo so it was fine for me. I think it would still be okay for 2 people too. The interior staterooms are the same width as the outside but I believe is shorter by 1 foot lengthwise. The cabin was kept very clean by the stateroom attendant. I was very pleased with it. My philosophy is you use the stateroom to change and sleep. You really do not need anything else. I would suggest a night light and an alarm clock since the room is pitch black normally.
