They don't call them lifeboats. See the latest video here.

It didn't look like any of the windows opened. I guess they won't be tendering in them, but if they do, it seems like it would be a little hot in the Caribbean with 370 on board.

They didn't mention it, but from what I've heard they are air-conditioned and will also have a "head" (toilet).

Does not sound like a fun place for claustrophobs like me!

I wouldn't think that Oasis would use their "Rescue Vessels" for tenders given the hassle of lowering them to the water, then back up once it's time to leave. I would think they would just stick to the contracted companies they have to use the existing tenders.

Actually the plan is to never tender from the Oasis, which is why they are building a pier at Labadee as well as the new facility at Falmouth, Jamaica. The ship is only going to places with a dock.

However, a exception may be upcoming with the 4-night cruise of Oasis in December. This cruise is the first revenue voyage and it goes only to Labadee. The pier might not be ready and thus they might have to tender ashore. Paul Motter is going on that cruise (I was but cancelled). I'm halfway hoping they have to tender just to hear his opinion of how it went.
