It's an OASIS without a doubt!

Sail Date: June 2010
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Our week on the Oasis was punctuated with the phrase "I can't believe it can be better". Each show was better then the first. From the Aquatheater to Hairspray to the Comedy Club to the "Circque" style aerial show...each was staged magnificently.

The ship has so many little places to explore...just finding all of the art and different hidden treasures (scopes with 3D pictures) took more than the time we had in the week.

There were over 6,000 people on the cruise, and it never felt crowded. Getting on and off at ports was so simple. No tenders! We were impressed with the improvements at Labadee as well.

The food was very good. The waiters were attentive. We ate at Chops (which had good food, but the atmosphere of Central Park is not as romantic as the Chops on ships with the ocean view) and at the Solarium Bistro as our 2 specialty nights.

During the day, we fond the Solarium area to be perfect to get lots of space, good food (best breakfast on More the ship) and an area for adults.

At night, we took advantage of the shows, of the Royal Promenade, and other night-club areas on the ship. I was very pleased to see that 50% of the casino is non-smoking, and is physically separated from the smoking part.

The last thing is that there was NO movement of the ship. We did not feel the ocean at all while we were fact we felt movement more in port than at sea.

So, we highly recommend the Oasis of the is unlike any other cuise experience you will have had.

Cabin review: JS Junior Suite with Balcony

Junior Suite had tons of room. Full bathroom. Only problem is that people are allowed to smoke on balcony, so the person next to us was a chain limited the time on our balcony. So, given the ship has sop many great public areas, I'll get an ocean view next time, and go from there.

Still more construction needed.

Had a great time using the local vendor "Snorkel Adventures". I highly recommend them. They were just at the end of the pier area, near the taxis. Very professional, and a great snorkel tour.
