Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review by ABubbe
- Sail Date: August 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
Main dining room food was much tastier than other RC ships. Our server was very friendly - the only thing I didn't like was she delivered appetizers, soups and salads all at once. I didn't complain to her - we were far from the kitchen and I guess that several trips would have extended our 2 hour dinners to 2 1/2 hours, and we would have missed our reserved shows.
We did our planning in advance and knew that we needed reservations for all of the shows, but there were always plenty of seats available 10 minutes before showtime for others who did not have reservations.
Labadee was also nicer than we expected with beautiful beaches and wonderful, clean water. We ate lunch early and avoided the long lines. The bobsled was a disappointment, the track too short and "wimpy" was the description we decided upon. Just as on the ship, there was never a problem finding a lounge chair.
We would definitely recommend this ship and we may even try the Allure of the Seas someday. We've heard it's even better than Oasis.

Dolphin Swim & EncounterThe Dophinaria is a beautiful facility. We spent about 45 minutes in the water with two dolphins and two handlers with a group of eight. It was quite thrilling to be so close to the dolphins. The actual swim along with the dolphin on the dolphin's belly was only about 30 seconds or maybe less - quite disappointing even though those few seconds were exhilarating. We paid for lunch through our tour - an increase from $99 to $129, so lunch cost us $30 each. We could have bought the lunch there for $15 each. The food was very tasty and we enjoyed bottled water with our Mexican lunch.View All 348 Dolphin Swim & Encounter Reviews
FalmouthWe took the combination Grotto and Dunns River Falls excursion. We thoroughly enjoyed both. We also enjoyed the small group size for our tours and the guide at the falls continuously watched over the whole group to ensure our safety on the slippery climb. The views of the Falls and surrounding fauna was quite beautiful.View All 1,151 Falmouth Cruise Port Reviews

LabadeeLabadee is a beautiful private beach with plenty of places to sit with a crowd or quietly under trees for a bit of shade. The bobsled was $19 for two but it was not a very long course. There were locals entertaining and asking for donations continually during their performance, but it was a nice diversion for about 30 minutes. The food was average and we wish there were covers to keep flies and other insects away. We did eat lunch early, before the crowds arrived, and lunch was packed up too early we thought because we planned to return for dessert but we were too late at 1:30.View All 1,455 Labadee Cruise Port Reviews
