Oasis is an amazing floating town will go again
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
You never imagine the size of this queen of the seas until you actually see her nd stand looking up, she is huge.
I always get sea sick and didnt at all not even a tablet needed in case. Very rarely do you feel the ship rock a little.
We had a balcony stateroom on deck 6 towards the back of the ship just off the exit out to the Boardwalk. No noise could be heard whatever was happening on the Royal promenade or boardwalk or from next door cabins and with your balcony door shut there was just a gentle hum. Room spotless, beds so comfy and sheets like silk, There were 3 of us but room enough for the room use we did. Dwayne our room attendant was polite and went the extra mile with the little towel animals that appeared on our bed some nights.
If anyone complains about the food they are being really ridiculous as the choice is more than enough for the fussiest, biggest eaters. We were in Opus 4 for evening meal and our waiters Mac and James were so nice and friendly and More deserve bonus's for their warmth and attentiveness. Windjammers choice was more than you could want and the quality of food everywhere was superb. Park Cafe beef rolls are melt in the mouth as are their salads and tuna sandwiches. Johnny Rockets (free for brekkie) does real american diner food and gorgeous pancakes with maple syrup and eggs,sausage,bacon. Wipe Out cafe you have got to try their tacos, chilli dogs and chips are the best. Queue just after lunch on sea days goes down fairly quickly.
Book all your shows ahead of your cruise. Hairspray and Come Fly with Me were brilliant.You will walk miles in a week as its a long way back to the cabin from the theatre etc but I have no complaints whatsoever and will be doing the Western Carib at some point.
Blue Lagoon Island (Nassau)was nice but it was very windy and the sea was choppy but being so close to dolphins was amazing even though it makes me sad that they dont swim freely in a huge ocean.
St Thomas we did a RC trip (expensive) to Sapphire Beach the sea was warm and the beach beautiful but it was too choppy to snorkel for long.
St Maarten was hot hot hot and beautiful, we did our own thing as they are so organised and you can get a bus taxi with others to any of the major sights for 9$ p.person each way. We went to Maho Beach where the planes come over head, small beach very crowded water blue and warm, then back to main port lovely shops, sea like a bath and great atmosphere.
We cried when we left the ship and wish we had done a back to back, but we will be back to Oasis in the future. She's AMAZING Less
