  3. Oasis of the Seas
Everyone on the Oasis was kind and polite. The ship had so many activities that I couldn't get to them all. The shore excursions were fantastic. The dining on board was varied and the service was great. Our housekeeper knew us by name and always spoke to us when he saw us. Everyone was willing to go out of their way to make our experience special. The only annoyance was getting off the ship at the ports and getting to the excursion meeting spot in a sea of people who didn't know what they were doing. The shore excursions crew were very vague about the meeting points, mostly just telling us "you'll see it." They also rushed us and threatened to leave us, but every single excursion started late. The excursions themselves were amazing. We snorkeled in Nassau, toured St. John when we stopped at St. Thomas (and still had plenty of shopping time in St. Thomas), and took a 6-hour island tour by boat in St. Maarten. In each case, the boat captains, taxi drivers, and crews were knowledable, fun, and polite.

Great experience

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Snorkeling
    The weather was against us, but they still took us out. Near the end of the excursion, the wind picked up and made swimming difficult. It began raining as the excursion ended. We saw several types of fish and enjoyed our time snorkeling. The boat ride was pleasant and the tour guides pointed out houses of celebrities along the way.

  • Island Tour
    We took an island tour by speedboat. The boat was very safe and the crew was great. We snorkeled at two spots and visited two beaches. We saw both sides of the island (Dutch and French) and had an amazing lunch at the last beach. I recommend the mahi mahi.

  • St. John Tour
    We traveled by boat to St. John. The crew was funny and knowledgable. We took a tour of the national park by taxi (open air). The driver stopped at several spots to allow time for picture-taking and to explain the history of the island, which was fascinating. He also pointed out several native plants and told us how the native Islanders use them.
