Oasis of the Seas - Worth the Price

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We found the Oasis to be the nicest ship we have ever sailed on. The neighborhood concepts are outstanding and we had a really wonderful experience.

A little about us. We are a 55 year old man and a 52 year old lady. This was our 17th cruise. My wife is a retired federal employee and I am a semi retired insurance agent. We are comfortable, but not wealthy and enjoy cruising as our primary vacation each year.

We drove to Jacksonville the day prior to the cruise and stayed at the Hampton Inn at the airport Friday night. We flew into Fort Lauderdale on the morning of the cruise. This is a little advice for people from the panhandle of Florida or South Georgia. It is almost as cheap to fly on Southwest out of Jacksonville as it is to drive by the time you figure in gas and parking at the port. We arrived in Fort Lauderdale around 9:15 and retrieved our luggage and took a $14 taxi ride to the port. They actually let us board the Oasis around 11 and we had lunch in More the buffet. The lunch was very good and the quality of food continued throughout the week. During the week, we ate in the Windjammer buffet, Johnny Rockets, The Park Cafe, The Promenade Cafe and the Opus dining room. They were all very good. Our stateroom was 12712, a balcony room looking out to the water. We were on the 12th deck. Many people have indicated that the ship seemed very crowqded with 6300+ passengers, but we felt that it was well organized and only seemed really crowded once during the trip. That was in the breakfast buffet one morning when we had just arrived in port.

Overall a great experience. Please e-mail me at cweathers@comcast.net if you have any questions. Please make your subject "Oasis of the Seas" Less
