I just received a press release from RCI which might interest our members who live in south Florida and want to see the Oasis arrive at Port Everglades.

Good Morning America is covering the arrival live this morning. GMA will be broadcasting from the Oasis next Friday (Nov 20) in a special show.

The Oasis just entered the channel and passed the beach.

They showed the terminal and a paving crew is still working on the road out front.

GMA this morning was just little bits with their weather guy at the port. The big show next Friday will be the one to watch or record it.

So it will be at the pier adjacent to the Florida Power & Light generating station - nice views of a steam plant!

Sam interrupted the captain, which I thought was rude.

Yes, the phone call to Captain Wright was odd to begin with, and then Sam interrupts him mid-sentence and essentially told him to shut up and blow the horn.
