A lot less than what I expected: Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review by LadyBlue58

A lot less than what I expected
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Breakfast presented an entirely new set of challenges: it took 3 attempts to find a bagel that wasn’t extremely crunchy or one you wanted to use as an anchor for said ship. They let them sit under the lights and if no one eats them, then stay there until someone is unfortunate and picks one up. Warning, there’s no grapefruit juice on the entire ship, so bring your own. If you desire a bagel anytime besides at breakfast (say you want bagels and lox for lunch), you’re flat out of luck " you can’t get one in any of the 24 restaurants on board and not even when ordering room service. Don’t even think about getting a decent steak in the MDR. Even cooked medium rare, it was terrible and tasteless. Another guest (one that holds that Diamond Plus status) sat at my table and about 3 nights later attempted to have that for his entrée. It was just as bad; so bad that when the restaurant manager visited our table, he informed him that someone needed to speak with the chef as this steak was TERRIBLEâ€¼!
One night I didn’t even find anything in the MDR for an entrée and was forced to settle for 3 appetizers to make a meal. Be warned, don’t get the (tasteless) grits and by all means, don’t ask for cheese grits. The waiters look at you like you’ve got 3 heads. So with help from a guest that told him to put cheese on the bottom in a bowl, then the grits and then more cheese, he left; he brought back the bowl of (unflavored/no seasoning) grits and about 8 slices of American cheese. That does not work. I thought, "hey, I’m going to start a new trend - losing weight on a cruise ship.
We ate at the (fee) Seafood Shack and it was good and tasty. It gets me that we needed 2 separate checks for a meal and a beverage " keep in mind there was a spot on each check for "additional gratuity”. It almost took an act of Congress and God to get iced tea at breakfast. Geezâ€¼! Less
Cabin review: 11322
Our balcony cabin #11322 was nice and even came with 3 plugs. Just would like to know how they expect you to charge all the electronic devices one travels with these days with 3 plugs. My friend had her outlet strip taken away from her. Our cabin stewards were nice, pleasant and did a good job cleaning our room, even though we only received two towel animals, although he said we would receive one every other night.
