November 2014 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
This was my first cruise and I am so glad that I chose to sail on the Oasis of the Seas. It had Broadway and Central Park themes. The ship had a wide open street feel, with most of the ship having exposure to the sky. It had good restaurants and very good waiting staff. We chose The Chops restaurant for our Specialty Dinner one night and was very satisfied - excellent melt in your mouth steaks with 4 different sauces to compliment them with. The other nights we ate in the American Icon dining room and had very good Starters, Main entrees and desserts to choose from. There were only 2 things that I didn't care for (in which they had no problem taking them and replacing them with something I did like) the lasagna & an apple strudel (very dry). They had excellent duck, cod, lobster, steaks, chicken, & shrimp selections. Felt like a fancy dinner every night. 2 nights were "formal" nights, in which we all dressed up in our finest. For lunch you could eat at the Windjammer which had Many many dishes to choose from. Because it is an international ship, there were dishes that satisfied most cultures at all times. Example: I noticed miso soup with vegetables to add was at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The entertainment each day was very very good. They had great acrobats, divers, ice skaters, singers, actors, and comedian shows. The adult game shows at night were very entertaining also.
The kids really enjoyed ping pong, mini golf, The Flowrider, rockwall climbing and swimming a lot. There was ice cream machines to dispense at their leisure.
There were many things to buy on the ship; Watches, purses, jewelry, shirts.... There were promotions throughout the cruise ($19.95 for a watch, 50% off purses....) Chances to win free stuff daily.
Bingo looked like fun....didn't get a chance to play myself (planned to, but didn't get around to it with so much other stuff to do)
Yes, I would recommend this ship to anyone wanting to enjoy a vacation!
