After all of the planning, scheduling time off from work, packing, and traveling to get on your Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas cruise, what do you do once onboard the ship? You can either play it by ear or check out the daily Cruise Compass that’s left in your cabin nightly. It’s in there that you’ll find absolutely everything from activities, entertainment, dining, bars and lounges, and more. You should never throw your Cruise Compass away before reading it and all of the inserts thoroughly. That’s how I found out about the unlimited internet that was available on my cruise.
On my recent 12-night transatlantic cruise on the Oasis of the Seas, which is covered in multiple posts here in the blog, you can see various facets of the ship, but how did I know what to do and when to do it? By taking a look at the Cruise Compass, of course! Below you’ll find the daily Cruise Compass for each day of the cruise along with any inserts. While I like the excitement of checking things out while I’m on the cruise, there are others who enjoy planning in advance. Therefore, I thought I’d share them with anyone wanting to take a sneak peek ahead of a cruise.

CROWN & ANCHOR SOCIETY: If you’re a Royal Caribbean Crown & Anchor Society member, you’ll receive special paperwork in you’re cabin about some of the special benefits you’ll receive during your cruise. These include special events and discounts.
SHORE EXCURSIONS: If you haven’t booked any shore excursions before you boarded, don’t panic. Royal Caribbean allows you to choose your excursions while onboard and charge it to your onboard account. As we only had one port day (Vigo, Spain), the shore excursion list was short to include London for those who boarded in Rotterdam on the 14th of October as well as activities in Fort Lauderdale.
Do you rely heavily on the Cruise Compass when you cruise with Royal Caribbean? Why or why not?
