The first few days are overwhelming. It is a huge ship and there are a lot of things going on (maybe too much, it's hard to make it to all the events you would like to try). The food is good, I hate how much is wasted. Some of the meals featured in the dining room is also in the buffets but it is nice to sit down to a nice conversation and not be surrounding by kids running around (which seems to be a thing that some parents find acceptable). Be mindful that not everyone has good manners, but you are on vacation...try to ignore it! Plenty of space to hide away, the ports were beautiful. Make sure you have something planned for Falmouth since there is nothing there. The private island is also good, nice and relaxing. You don't have to do anything but bring your towel. I did not purchase any of the extra island activities. Walking around and playing on the beach was enough for me.
This was the 2nd time on this ship in 3 years and the first time was the best time. This time was awful we spent most of our cruise down at customer service very bad they need to really work on there services. We ate at the windjammer all week very good food and service. I think on formul nights you should Beable to eat at all the restaurants without haven to pay for it. The pool bar of course was awesome again Bailey Steve, guido, Vernon and Marvin are the best bartenders on that ship. The only thing is they don't do the drink of the day need to bring that back. The house keepers were also very good room was cleaned and changed twice a day. Prices have gone up a lot . Excursion in Mexico we just went shopping we spent most of our time waiting for Weston Union to open up. But Mexico was very nice we would love to go back. Jamicia we went to dolphin cove that was amazeing. We want to o back there to cause the cruise does not give you enough time on the ports, by the time we came back from dolphin cove we had to rush in a couple stores never got to see that whole port at all. Haiti was beautiful also we went to the beach and my girls did the zip line. When we arrived nothing was ready to go the tram was not running lots of walking there and it was very hot, the beach we went to was very rocky. Also we went to go and get soda at 1030 was not open yet but they were going around with alcoholic beverages. The food was awful. On this port cause it's Royal carribean private island we pay enough for the vacation alone we should not have to pay extra to go on the beach without rocks or pay 35.00 to have 2 chairs under a tent. I will not tell any of my family and friends to cruise the oasis of the seas.
All the shows were very professional & entertaining. Watching "Cats" was just like sitting in a Theatre in Broadway!! Lots of fun things to do & keep you occupied while on the ship & great selection of excursions at each Port. Only issue was that we had to pay $25 extra per person to get a nice "HOT" dinner at Giovanni's. We understand that it's a large ship with over 6000 passengers, but the appetizers & dinners were always served warm or just luke warm. Not very appetizing, especially when paying top dollar for a week at sea.
From MeetOnCruise iPhone App:
Book all your shows online before the cruise. This is crucial or you may not get into some. Do not miss the aqua theater show. It is amazing. This ship and the Allure are UNBELIEVABLE! You will love it.
