We are early 50's, very active, and well acquainted with the Caribbean and many islands. This was our 5th cruise, having sailed on larger ships before. This ship was a great choice and I highly recommend Jewel and the Southern Caribbean ... Read more

We went on the cruise with a small group. Because we have went on several cruises in the past, we were able to know what to expect, and where this particular cruise stacked up in regards to others. It is solidly at the very bottom of the ... Read more

The choice of this cruise was made by a quilting shop - we made quilts and had classes on sea days. That said, this was my first cruise (I'm 75 years old); my friend has been on quite a few cruises, but never one on a ship this big. ... Read more

We have a group of friends who cruise together once a year, always on RCL. We chose the Oasis this year, not for where it was going, but to experience the ship. Of the 60, only two say they would go on it again. While beautiful, there are ... Read more

We have a group of 60 mature travelers, from first-timers to veteran cruisers. Picked Allure of the seas because of the itinerary and newness of the ship. Everyone enjoyed the cruise. The ship is pretty advanced with digital technology. ... Read more

The Oasis of the Seas offers a huge variety of activities and shows for families to enjoy. The ship is beautiful and huge - it's like a floating mall at sea. The staff is what truly makes this cruise special. We ate in the Grande Dining ... Read more

I am a tour leader for a social club in Sun City TEXAS and took 54 of our members on this cruise. Everyone liked it but complained about the casino being 100% smoking. It was only 1/2 smoking in December. The ship is quite nice ... Read more

This cruise was a fundraiser for a local charity. The Wednesday before sailing, RC called my TA and requested a cabin change, as they need our Jr. Suite for a family of four. I accepted the cabin change with additional on-board credit. ... Read more

Central Park on the Allure (and Oasis) is a nice place to relax and 'chill' while listening to the bird calls and taking in the beautiful 'grounds' of live plants and trees. The Rising Tides Bar didn't always keep its posted schedule. I ... Read more
