Today was a big day in terms of Oasis publicity. Probably the biggest. It was officially opened to media, travel agents, and invited guests(think diamond+). It all kicked off yesterday when invited guests were allowed to board for an over night trip. One of them was Chris (Cruiserccl) from CruiseNotes. He has filled up his site with a lot of media especially his video reports from the ship. His videos can be found here.
After Good Morning America wrapped up, she arrived back in port.
Here is her track from this morning.
You can get the sense that I wasn’t too pleased by their lack of coverage of the event. After watching how CruiseCritic handled their introduction of the vessel, I wouldn’t have needed to wake up early.
This afternoon she embarked additional media, travel agents, and invited guests. Cruise Critic was among those that were there. Their Editor in Chief, Carolyn Spencer Brown, and Managing Editor Melissa Paloti held a live walkthrough this afternoon. This was streamed live over the wifi on the ship. Its nice to see people in the industry finally use the internet for things like this. Very web 2.0ish!
In case you missed it, I have included it below. Its just over an hour long. If you have the time its worth a watch but like I said its an hour. An hour of them walking around the windjamer, central park, and boardwalk. But they do a thorough job of it.
