Overall Member Rating
Oasis of the Seas
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The ship is one BIG ship for sure. We have been on several other cruises ( RCCL/NCL/CARNIVAL/DISNEY) and this one was the biggest.
There was 12 in our group, ages ranged from 11 yrs old to 72 yrs old.
Doing everything online ahead of time made check-in a brezze. Arrived and walked in and were all checked in within 15 minutes. Once aboard we headed for Central Park to the Park cafe for lunch. The beef sandwich was great as was the other items that we all shared.
We had an inside cabin (love the darkness when you go to bed) others in our group had the outside balcony rooms. Only difference was that they had the balcony other than that the room was pretty much the same size. Room only has 2 recepticles under the desk ( bring a power strip for sure ). Room attendant was awful seen him the first day, I asked a bucket of ice and didnt see him again More until the last night ( 6 days later ) when he stopped by for his envelope.
We had the MY TIME dining for dinner which worked out great for our group of 12. We had ERNESTO who was great. We didnt book the specialty restraunts right away, so by Monday afternoon they were all soldout.
Breakfast and lunch at the Windjammer buffet was too repetative ( same items EVERY day ) so we found a better choice at OPUS on level 3 for a great sit down breakfast and lunch with multiple choices.
Dinner was TOPS, we were never disappointed. Lobster night was Thursday, but my favorite was the Lamb shank MMMMMMMMM GOOD!!!!!
For a great afternoon snack there is the Wipeout Cafe on 15 with some great nachos and tacos.
The cruise director was there but not that entertaining ( have seen better )kind of a bore, he tried to be funny but it did not always work out that way.
We seen Hair Spray but wasnt my cup of tea, the aqua/ice skating/aerial shows were good though. They did have a disco night on the Promanade level that the girls loved. The casino was always fun, although the had half smoking and half non-smoking but no matter were you sat you smelled like an ashtray by nights end.
We avoided the kiddy pool area as well as the sports pool, WAY TOO MANY LITTLE ONES. Stayed mostly in the Main pool where we met alot of INTERESTING people.
We stayed on the ship at Naussa to explore the boat and find our short cuts to everything. At St Thomas we should have stayed on the ship, the place gets worse and worse everytime it seems. In St Maarten my daughter and I took the Treetop Adventure ( zip lining ) for $99 per person and had a GREAT TIME. Everyone else went shopping and enjoyed the day.
Overall the ship was nice. It is something that everyone should try just to say " I was on the Oasis of the Seas " Less
