Our family is fortunate because we reside only 30-minutes from Port Canaveral. We enjoy the PASSENGERS on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, in addition to the ships, itinerary, food and entertainment. We are now all Diamond-Plus Members of Royal Caribbean’s Crown and Anchor Society. Stateroom: We stayed in a marvelous Grand Suite in deck 11 near the Diamond Lounge. The room size is 371 sq. ft. with a 105 sq. ft. balcony. The bathroom is spacious, has a tub, two sinks and lots of storage. Our stateroom attendant provided the "invisible service" we appreciate: place the "Make UP Room" sign on the door when leaving for meals and the room is clean when we return. The internet package for the entire cruise is also a nice feature and comes free with a Grand Suite. Coastal Kitchen and Suite Lounge: We were interested in experiencing the additional benefits of Grand Suites and above (Sky Class) by having breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Coastal Kitchen and drinks in the Suite Lounge next door. Service is superb and quality of the food excels many of the specialty restaurants. The filet of beef, served on the first night of the cruise, is superb!! Select beer, wine and champagne is available from 11:30 am until 11:00 pm. Mixed drinks are available from 4:30pm until 8:00pm each night. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Coastal Kitchen is even open for breakfast on debarkation morning. Reservations are required for dinner, so I recommend making your reservations early when you come on board before the most popular times are taken. Entertainment: We made reservation for the spectacular entertainment well before boarding the ship. Oasis can’t have 6,500 passengers attending the same show at the same time. We reserved Frozen in Time, Oasis of Dreams, the Headliner Showtime, and Come Fly with Me. Sky Class guests get reserved seating at each theater. Shore Excursions: Our only shore excursion was on Labadee’s Barefoot Beach for Sky Class guests and cabana rentals. We received an upscale lunch and a terrific day at a tropical beach. An additional Grand Suite perk was that a separate golf cart type transportation was available (which is nice if the weather is hot or guests have trouble walking). The pick-up spot is just past the information booth and there is an attendant with a walkie-talkie to call the driver. This is not the same service as the other regular guest pick-up carts (which don’t stop at Barefoot Beach). Debarkation: The Concierge service escorted Sky Suites and above off the ship with no queuing. It just took our family 10-minutes from the time we left the Champagne Bar, departed the ship, picked-up our luggage, completed the Customs check and exited Cruise Terminal 1 to our car. WOW!

Try a Suite, if you can.
