We were unsure of how we were going to like the "big" ship feeling but after 7 days of pure pleasure, there is no doubt.
Even though quite large and somewhat daunting, the crew is so well trained that you almost feel as though the ship is small. They have made great use of the space so that it really didn't seem that crowded.
We participated in all of the shows. Some were better than others in my opinion. Loved the Splish/Splash aqua show - thought it better than the Oasis of dreams which was a bit odd although great talent. The ice show was wonderful, the comedy zone great, hairspray was good, the headliner show was a great group called My5stic. Be sure to make your reservations before you go. You can change them but don't wait and have to stand in line. Will not be fun!
We did the my time dining which was great when scheduled early but not great for later times. We didn't do any of the specialty restaurants so no comment on those. Sorrentos has really good pizza.
Pool areas were fabulous! There is a salt water pool, casual pool, kids, etc. Don't miss the Solarium area which is just fabulous and relaxing.
Labadee was nice. We went to the first beach we found - not sure that was the right thing to do... Rented a mat ($12@) so we just floated. Had a really nice lunch provided by the ship. In Jamaica, we did the zip line and had a great time. That was so much fun and would highly recommend. We just went shopping in Cozumel and had a blast. It was my husbands first time there. Be careful in the restaurants when the waiter asks if you want a refill on a soda, etc. You pay full price for each one. Enjoy the shopping. Go down the alleys as there are some great prices and nice people. For fun, Carlos and Charlies is great for some tequila!!!
We will definitely go back on the Oasis - maybe the Eastern next time. Have a great trip!!!
