On our cruise before this one, we had docked next to Allure of the Seas, and having heard of Oasis Class ships, I was intrigued, as we were on a 1900pax ship, and I was wondering what extra fun was to be had on a large ship with lots of offerings. The couple we were sitting next to at the time said, they went on, they were glad they did, but they wont ever go again. Now having been on it, that is kind of my opinion too. Our travel agent had an unbelievable price on an inside balcony, like we paid $600 less than the rate on RCCL's website.

The room was very basic, like a cheap hotel. The AC was awful, always so humid in the room. Some of the limited storage was only deep enough to fit a rolled up t-shirt, like 3-4" deep. We had a good cabin steward. Having a CPAP machine, I had ordered water and an extension cord, I got the water, but there was no extension cord, but the cabin steward showed me a hidden outlet under the bed.

The food was, well, this isn't the vacation if you are a foodie. One night in the MDR, the options were so unappealing, we ordered a few appetizers and went to the buffet. We had 5 meals at specialty restaurants. At Sabor Mexican, I expected greatness, but it seemed to be the prepared quality of Taco Bell. We tried Chops twice, amazing service, but the food was equal to Applebees. The only two places I'd eat again on the ship: We went to 150 Park, that was pretty good. The best was Giovanni's, amazing entrees, we didn't order the steak, the waitress brought it anyway, and it was in the top 10 steaks I have had in my life, made me wish I never went to Chops.
