Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review by 00mae
- Sail Date: May 2014
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The first place we went was Nassau, Bahamas. When you get off the ship there are miles of vendors set up trying to sell you stuff. They WILL try to sell you drugs. Just ignore them because you have to go through metal detectors and have your bags inspected on the way back to the ship like airport security. We booked the Rainbow Reef snorkel tour because it was the cheapest. DO NOT TAKE THIS EXCURSION! We had no problem finding where to go. They led a large group of people to the boat. There were too much people and not enough snorkel gear. They gave us NO instructions and just told those of us that were lucky enough to get scuba gear to jump in the water. The life jackets were cheap and they didn't make sure we had them on correctly or anything. I saw some people weren't even wearing them. I got in the water to look at the reef. It was ok, not rainbow. Then everyone was out in the water and it started to rain harder and harder until it was storming. They should not have let us out in conditions like this. There were small children! I tried to swim back to the boat but the waves were big and I couldn't see. This was one of the most terrifying experiences ever. I thought I was going to die. I grabbed onto a stranger and had them pull me back to the boat. When I got on the boat I saw many people swimming and trying to get back to the boat and they couldn't. The workers had to swim and get them one by one until by miracle everyone was back on the boat. SO SCARY! I have learned that if you want a nice shore excursion you have to pay more.
In St. Thomas we went to Magens Bay. The most beautiful beach ever! You don't need a shore excursion to get there. We didn't get off the boat in st martaan because it was too much hassle and we were tired. Overall I had a great time and the snorkeling incident was the only bad part. I would highly recommend this cruise!!!!
