Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express by the Port. Easy ride over from FLL airport and easy ride to the port by Cab. Arrived at 11:00 there was a slight delay boarded around 11:20 only took minutes to board. This ship is massive, we have been on 8-10 cruises, Freedom was our last, this ship is big. Book your room close to an Elevator, we were in 10570 just a few steps down from the Elevator, on deck 10 with a Balcony, room was great. Clover our attendant was great. Keep in mind this ship is 400 yards long, if your room is in the middle, you will walk 100 yards to get to the steps or elevator. All the shows were great, Park Cafe did have a great Roast Beef sandwich, breakfast at Park Cafe was great also. Windjammer was as expected. Our only complaint, the digital board which shows the menu in the main dinning room, vs. your ship room did not match, it was a day off due to our cruise being the first Western, they had been sailing Eastern. We skipped Wed. nights dinner and it was the best night to eat, as our room menu didn't match. Many People were upset, we complained, however they did nothing except told us to go to the Windjammer, you would have thought they would have at least offered us a specialty dinner. With todays technology that shouldn't have happened. Go to the dinning room and ask to see that nights menu would be our suggestion. Labadee, basically is for just sitting on the beach and enjoying the largest picnic I have ever been to. Costa Maya, and Cozumel were ok, however I commented that the pricing in Mexico isn't that great anymore because you can buy most of the stuff at your local store cheaper, as most what they have is imported from China, every store seems to be the same. The top two decks at the back of the ship are open to the public, they are not suites, you can go out and see the water show, or just gaze. The view from the viking crown lounge is amazing. The sports pool was the only adult big pool that is fresh water, and it seemed to be cooler, those pools get hot in the heat all day. Getting off the ship was easy, we walked off with our luggage and was at the airport in 10 minutes. Other than the menu goof, it was a great trip.

Oasis is big, but the little things should be tweaked.
