Harmony of the Seas
Try alternate venues for breakfast and lunch, lots of good options and then you avoid the busy Windjammer.
Went to Chankanaab for the Dolphin Discovery and sea lion show with lunch. Was a fun day. The pool there is very nice. I liked the swim up bar. The drinks are as you’d expect since they’re included- cheap. But, better than paying! :) Lunch was ok. It isn’t a culinary masterpiece but we all had enough to eat.
We did the Adventure Falls and River Tibing excursion through RCL. It’s on the Good Hope Estate, and was not strenuous at all. We had super fun guides, really they make it the tour. The pool and water slide and waterfall you can visit afterwards was great- my kids didn’t want to leave! Beautiful setting.
Finally made it to Nellies Beach- lovely water and even though it was busy I liked it better than the other side of the peninsula. I laughed when I realized how close it was to the children’s play area where I’d been before- thanks to the friends on this app that helped me figure out where’s it was:)
Freedom of the Seas
The kids will love the water park.
Sat on the beach for a morning. Pretty! Wear watershoes to protect your feet.
we did the Good Hope Afternoon Tea. Very fun! Although we did not get to stop at the gift shop or potter's place, so that was a bit disaopointing. Good shopping at the port.
Went to Rio Secreto, underground river excursion. Lasts all day, so dont think you can shop Cozumel! But you do get some time in Playa Del Carmen. Not a lot... travel takes up much of the day.

Try the Park Cafe for lunch. The hot sandwiches are my husbands favorite thing! Also give Wonderland a shot. i guarantee you will love it! Otherwise, head to the adults only pool to stay cool. Make sure you get your show tickets online ahead of time.
Try Graycliff Chocolate Factory tour. You make your own chocolate treats and can sample it. Nice short excursion that isn't weather-dependent.
Oasis of the Seas
Book everything online before you go!
didn't even get to go! And I usually LOVE Castaway Cay. Watch out for Jan sailings.
tenders are no fun. the beach was only just ok.
Confusing and crowded
It's a good bargain; but don't expect it to be as nice as the bigger ships.
The adults only beach is FANTASTIC!!!! It couldn't have been more perfect. The water is amazing.
Eh. Lots of ppl, nothing really great. Two other ships were docked at the same time and it was congested.
So much better than going through Miami.
Try the tastings! We've done the Champagne one in Pink and it's great! Also remember to try the adults-only restaurants.
