The Best Cruise Experience PERIOD!

Sail Date: November 2010
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Let me begin by saying that RCCL has revolutionized the cruising experience with this ship and here it goes:

Check-in: arrived at pier at 10:45 A.M. on the ship by 11:15 A.M.. This included baggage handling, parking, checking in, taking the "Welcome Aboard" photo and walking into the Promenade.

Cabin: Love the new design. The closet is positioned differently so that you don't get stuck in the hallway between the bathroom door and the closet. The flat screen is a plus. The bedding is awesome and plush! The balcony was good as usual..

Cabin Stewart: "Cat" was awesome. We had connecting balcony cabins. Our daughter's were next door and he really catered to them which is important to us! Lot's of "towel art"

Dining: WOW! Ate at 12 different places. No lines no wait! The ship has touch screens everywhere that you can use to get "Dining" options with wait times all day long. Phenomenal! As mentioned made absolutely no lines at any of the dining venues. More These screens also gave other important ship info, "Cruise Compass" , entertainment, etc. Dining at Opus was awesome. The staff was awesome! Waiter Ionut and Jarquin once again catered to us.

Entertainment: Top Notch! Don't miss the Ice Skating, "Come Fly With Me", The Headliner show, (our Headliner was Earl Turner who was amazing) and "Oasis of Dreams" and the comedy show. "Hairspray" was well performed just not my cup of tea. However, it was a great show!

Activities: Flowrider was awesome as usual and a great staff manning it. 10 to 15 wait time at peak time that I rode and 5 minute wait time otherwise. Zipline was very fast but great to do at least once. The wait line a little longer. We did it after we boarded and there was no wait! rock climbing was also great with very little wait times...... Putt putt- no wait time and fun family time.

Pool deck: Incredible! Never had to search for deck checks. A few days got chairs near the pools without having to camp out for it.... The Solarium is the BEST place to be on deck. Great loungers and chairs.

Ship: Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! Enough said!

The most amazing part is the way that RCCL has handled the crowds. Never felt like the ship was crowded. The flow is the best I have seen on any ship. As I said we have been on 30 + cruise ships and this is by far the BEST!!!!!!

In a nut shell we are planning our next cruise on the Oasis and the Allure. We had another ship booked in February and July and we are going to change to the Oasis and Allure. Less
