  3. Oasis of the Seas
Amazing ship with plenty of room to roam and activities to enjoy. The Oasis is a floating resort which despite a capacity of over 6,000 passengers, you never feel congested because the common spaces and areas are massive. We had a balcony stateroom on the 10th deck and it was on the small side with a tiny bathroom and lacking in storage space. Although you need to even reserve seats for the free shows, the shows were spectacular. We dined in the main dining room for dinner, and had breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer Cafe, and the food was average to above average. All of the drinks on board were ridiculously expensive ($7.5o for an Amstel Light, plus 18% gratuity), specialty drinks ran $12.50, plus gratuity, all expected but outrageous. We had two shots of Zaya Rum at the poolside bar (Line and Coconut Bar) and were charged $12.99 each shot! I can buy an entire 750ml bottle of Zaya shoreside for $24.99. The Casino Royale is large but prohibitive (the worst paying casino I’ve ever played in)-I lost 6 out of 7 days playing there and so did all of our party and other players I spoke to in the casino. The slots payouts are low and you have to play high denominations to hit anything decent (stay away)! The best part of the Oasis of the Seas is the Boulevard and Central Park. An amazing, lively setting with different shops, bars and restaurants and ongoing parties and scheduled events. The three stops, Labadee, San Juan and St. Thomas were all decent, but St. Thomas is looking very run down nowadays. As with all ships, shore excursions are very expensive and you could be better off negotiating a tour once you get off the ship. All in all, a magnificent ship but very expensive vacation if you’re not careful.

Beautiful ship
