As Good As Advertised

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We went to the Eastern Caribbean on the Oasis the first week of October. My wife and I are in our early 50's. This was our 2nd cruise, the first being on RCCL to Alaska a couple of years ago. We went with our best friends who were on their 1st cruise.We were all excited about going on the Oasis and we weren't disappointed.

We booked an ocean view balcony stateroom and were very happy with the room. It was spacious enough for the two of us and had plenty of storage for all of our things. The suitcases fit nicely underneath the bed. The only problem we found with the room is the location of the plug. Definitely want to bring some type of extension cord. Out stateroom attendant, Praneek, was very personable and did a great job on taking care of our stateroom. She always had a smile on her face and always asked if we were enjoying our day.

We ate at most of the free restaurants on board and were very happy with all of them. We thought the food was very good. The roast beef More sandwiches at the Park Cafe were as good as advertised. We were especially pleased with the food and service in the MDR. We ate there every night except one. Amar and Jovie, our waiter and assistant waiter, could have not been more pleasant and were eager to serve us and make us happy. We have seen the MDR get bad reviews in both the quality of food and service, but we had great food and great service.

We enjoyed all of the shows we attended. Especially enjoyed the Love and Marriage Game and The Quest. Our cruise director Richard Spacey, was extremely entertaining and very funny. "Love you....Mean it"

Our best advice when you go on this cruise is to just relax. Yes there are 6300 fellow travelers and you may have to wait for an elevator or in line for a show.Instead of stressing about it,just order a drink of the day, and enjoy the time you get to spend on this magnificent ship. We would definitely sail on the Oasis again. Less
