April 2017 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
Embarkation was smooth and easy. When we arrived at the port the lines were extremely long. Looked like at least 2 hours of waiting. To our surprise we were through security, checked in and on the ship within a little over a half hour. Disembarkation was also smooth. We took our bags off ourselves and were off the ship and through customs within 30 minutes.
Onboard Activities were great for our family. 2 boys (11 and 8) loved to hang at the H2O Zone and sports deck. They loved playing soccer, ping pong, golf and going on the Flow Rider, Rock Wall and Zip line.
Entertainment - The adults did not do any of the shows but my children did enjoy the Aqua show.
Children's programs - My kids LOVED the programs and attended every night after dinner and sometimes during the day after lunch.
Destinations - We stayed on the ship in the Bahamas. St. Thomas we went to Coki beach. The trip to the beach was a little long in traffic. About 40 minutes. But the kids loved snorkeling and feeding the fish. The locals were very nice and accommodating. Lunch at the beach was surprisingly very good. St. Maarten we just walked to shops which were about a 15 minute walk. The locals were very nice and lightly selling their products and beach chairs.
Ship Quality - the ship is HUGE and very clean.
Service and Staff were excellent and accommodating. Our dinner crew, the pool bar staff and casino bar staff were great.
Food and Dining - I thought the food was good, not excellent. . I was a little disappointed that I wasn't able to get the kids ice cream after 11pm, which is when we picked them up from the children's program each night but we were able to get Sorrento's which is always a family favorite.
Our family had a great trip and I would recommend this ship and sail it again. The ship was large and clean and didn't feel crowded most times.
