- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View Stateroom
Once again we had no trouble getting our sea passes. We were in and out of that area within 15 minutes and off we went to get on the ship! This area is very well organized!We were able to get on the ship around 11:30 and were told our rooms would be ready about 1:00 which they were. Our luggage arrived shortly before our dinner reservation which was at 5:45. If it doesn't arrive before dinner don't worry. They are pretty understanding of what people are wearing knowing they might not have gotten their luggage yet. Just don't plan to wear a bathing suit in the dining room!
We had great food and service no matter where we ate! We did eat at Giovannis and Johnny Rockets for lunch on two of the days and ate at the Park Cafe the other days for the famous roast beef sandwich! We ate at Chops Grille for dinner one night and the Opus dining room the remaining nights. We did the My Time Dining as that worked out best for our schedule with the excursions and shows we had reserved.
Speaking of which~ Book everything you want to do before you get on the ship! Book all of your shows and dining (Opus Dining or specialty restaurants) or you won't be able to get into them! You also have to be at the show you have reserved 15 minutes ahead of the starting time or they will give your reservation away. There were always long lines of people waiting to get in that didn't have a reservation! We enjoyed all of the shows! We booked every one of them and didn't leave disappointed! The comedians they had a board were hilarious and the Headliner was great too!The only complaint that we have is there isn't another itinerary for the Oasis now that we have done the Western and Eastern trips! Would love to see this ship do the Southern Caribbean!

St. MaartenWe took a guided tour of the island. We went to both sides of the island- the Dutch side and the French side. Be careful when booking your excursions as some only visit one side. It was our first time on the island so we wanted to experience both sides. Be cautious of drinking bottled water not from the U.S.!View All 4,132 St. Maarten Cruise Port Reviews
