We cruised with a group. We had reserved private tour for 6 with Bernards independent of ship. He was a bit hard to find-near back of port area-but well worth it. We had arranged ahead of time to bring school supplies which he donated to local foster kids for us. He had let us know they needed them & we were glad to be of help. We had a very good tour guide-Jackson-who was friendly & accommodating & took us where we wanted to go & on out schedule. Went shopping in downtown which he told us would be less expensive & it was although port area did have some great buys too. Spent some time at beach & Jackson waited there so we could leave when we were ready. Jackson gave us a great tour of both sides of island & lots of great info. Just FYI, if you use scooter on ship, Bernard's has a safe place you can leave it while you're on tour. We will definitely use Bernard's again.

As for Oasis, we love Royal Caribbean but felt they nickle & dimed us a bit. We were on Princess Regal month before & in room movies were free ($11.99 on RCI, free popcorn & cookies & milk at Movies Under the Stars & drink packages were much cheaper. Soda package on Princess included soda, fresh squeezed juices & mocktails for $9.05/day while RCI's soda package included only soda & was $9.99/day. Service & entertainment on RCI were excellent, especially our dining room waiters-Komang & Bronwyn, They knew our names & drinks etc by 2nd night & parked our electric scooters outside dining room & brought them to us after dinner nightly without our asking..

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony Accessible

Cabin 3D

Great cabin with plenty of room for 2 electric scooters without having to trip over them. First time we've done balcony & wish the chairs had been more comfortable but it was nice to leave balcony doors open & listen to the waves. Keith was an excellent stateroom attendant & took care of all of our needs!. I was told by RCI that they no longer offer eggcrates for beds so I brought my own. After boarding I found that 3 members of our party received them from RCI. Left mine for room attendant so he was happy.
