Okay, the good news: yes, it is a cruise. Yes, there is plenty of good food. Yes, the rooms are cool, dark, and comfortable. Yes, the port logistics are pretty solid. Also, the Coastal Kitchen still very much rocks.
Now, the nit-picky things:
- The Oasis is really starting to show her age, as most of the surfaces in guest rooms are quite warn.
A little warn down. You can certainly hear the noise from the pool deck, as you are nearly under the wipeout cafe. The room is a good layout, but the lights are getting a little finicky on the controls.
The ship docked on Tuesday, and every museum was closed. We should have gone with a tour for this one.
Critical -- if you do not get a tour, make sure to prepurchase a Roma pass which gets you access to the Fora and the Coliseum.
It's a good hike. A very long bus ride, however.
A very crowded tourist trap before the start of the tour. So, it likely gives you the feel of visiting ancient Pompei.
