Seas have calmed down for a few days now, and the Oasis is making 20 to 23 knots. Today's update from the bridge includes two retired Royal Caribbean Captains who were invited to make the journey.

BTW, there are some nicknames showing up on the Oasis blogs. Captain Wright is now called "Captain Storm" because of the rough weather they encountered. And, they tried out so many things on the Liberty Of The Seas (among other ships too) that the Liberty is known at "Test Of The Seas" at RCI headquarters.

Here is the link

Oh, and for those interested, when the one Captain says the Oasis is stable because she has a "GM of 6 meters", he is referring to it's Metacentric Height
