I see that RCI has had some misfortune with Oasis while it is in dry dock in the Bahamas

I saw yesterday several reports with pictures and videos where Oasis had a bit of a run in with a large crane while in dry dock. As usual in dust ups of this nature the crane usually comes out on top. Unfortunately RCI has had to cancel sailing for the Oasis for April 7, 14, 21. The damage does not look very good. Hope they get it all fixed up

Thanks for finding that...looking closely at the damage Im amazed they can fix it in 3 weeks...the thing stove in several decks worth of balconies, not counting the electronics buried here and there, plus internal damage....and Im assuming there was no actual damage to the deck or hull..

We have a friend that was scheduled to sail on the 14th. She said they refunded the entire amount and gave them the same in credit for a future cruise. Royal is taking care of the passengers as best they can.

Cant ask for more than that...altho Im sure some will..they could do that to me and I'd get over it..toot sweet!

That is a very nice offer .. would be happy to accept. And I am sure that RCI is sending the bill for all of their kindness and goodwill to the dry dock crane operator or their insurance company ;)

Not good news. Hope no workers got hurt.

Unfortunately depending on which vid you saw, 8 workers did...dunno how seriously tho.

Sad to hear. Thanks for the update.

I think I'd be booking two cruises, one with the refund and the other with the credit.Big Smile


Outstanding!!! least there was no abandon ship or s/a muster drill...no passengers ...thats the way to have a mess!!
