We chose this cruise based on history with RCL and the itinerary - Spain, France and Italy in one week! It was a great cruise, a little chilly since it was not that hot in late May and no real pool time aboard the ship - lots of hot tub time at night after daily port stops and lots of walking! Oasis is a great ship, our first time aboard but we had been on other Oasis ships before - only disappointment was the Cats Broadway show - just not a good show for the cruise audience - loved other productions on RCL before, especially Mama Mia!

Love all the activities and the food was very good. We used MyTime dining and with different port departure times each day it made it easy set our group dining time at a different time each night.

Mini golf, zip line, daily trivia and flow rider were very popular activities for the five kids with us. The Harry Potter trivia game was fantastic, held by assistant Cruise Director Prince who wore his Harry Potter cloak and held the contest in the Blaze nightclub.

Cabin Review

Interior

Cabin 3V

I took eight of us and we booked inside cabins to save some money and those rooms worked out nicely - we had three passengers in two cabins and two in one cabin - was surprisingly comfortable with the couch that folded out to a full size bed. Key thing about this cruise is that you are in a different port every day and there was only one day at sea, so spent very little time in the room when not sleeping.

Port Reviews

Barcelona

Beautiful city, my kids saw the cathedral La Segrada Familia

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

We took the bus from the port to city center, very beautiful island and loved the cathedral and fort with great shopping nearby.

La Spezia (Cinque Terre)

We booked RomeInLimo for a day trip to Florence - fantastic choice and I highly recommend this to everyone. I worked with Jany at RomeInLimo to put together this day trip from our cruise ship port of La Spezia and he was fantastic working with us in advance to schedule and book this trip. Our driver Fabrizio was fantastic, made the drive very enjoyable and tailored the day to our groups wants and desires. Based on the recommendation from @Jany-RomeInLimo, we booked skip the line tickets (very hard to get by the way due to the cruise ship season and tours booking up all the times!) and our driver timed the day to see the Santa Croce cathedral and other sites before Accademia were we saw the statue of David - a must see recommendation from me for a day in Florence. RomeInLimo was a fabulous choice - made from reading past reviews by other crusie travelers - for half the cost of the ship excurisions on buses, we got our personal van for my whole family and Fabrizio did a magnificent job of showing us as much as we wanted to see in one day. Do yourself a favor and book RomeInLimo on your next cruise to Italy to see the sights and avoid the cruise ship crowds.
