2nd OASIS OF SEAS cruise as fabulous of first.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Staff was wonderful. Embarkation: FANTASTIC Disembarkation: FANTASTIC Food: FANTASTIC Service: FANTASTIC Entertainment: FANTASTIC Ship: FANTASTIC Comedy Club: EXCELLENT, FANTASTIC With such a large ship you would think lines would be everywhere, not so. The week goes by quickly with many activities available each day. If you want to stay on board, there is so much to do the day flies by. There is a special breakfast for the children with Shrek and Fiona and Puss and More Boots, parades with the Madagascar characters. RCCL has a wonderful program for children and the children's area for swimming is one of the best at sea. Hairspray and the comedy club is a must see as well as the Diving show and the ice show. Please remember to book months ahead of your cruise so you can get a seat.
Only during the lifeboat drill do you see how many people are there. There were times we had to wait but not long for an elevator. This ship has everything down to a perfection, as it sails the seas. The Oasis well be doing Northern European cruises this fall. Either of the Oasis ships are wonderful. Less
Cabin review: 10611
Cabin is very adequate and the balcony is wonderful to sit and hear the birds chirp. It is very close to get to Park Cafe to have breakfast or lunch. It is a very popular place to eat. As well Johnny Rockets has a great made to order breakfast.

Get spot to shop but be aware that cigarettes are not made in USA they are Swiss $17.95 a carton Cash. . Alcohol is a great bargain here Crown Regal $14.95 litre. Beware of jewelry be sure you know prices before you go. Ship docks at the pier away from town, you take a $6 round trip boat to main pier in town. There are also beaches that you can rent Umbrella and chairs with beer or coke for $25 for day.There are water sports up and down this beach.The waters are so beautiful in St Maaten from aqua blue to deep blue not be missed. Such a beautiful island.
The ship docks in Crown bay and you take a taxi downtown for $5 ea way.
Shopping is prime thing in St Thomas. Cigarettes here are $26 a carton made in USA. Alcohol is a good buy here you can bring back 6 bottles from US Virgin Islands. But you have to pack in suitcase unless you drive.
