Review by LegoChef

If not for RCL's horrible accounting, would have been perfect!

VERY well written review Lego!! You covered all the bases and it is reviews like this one that help others make competent decisions about booking a future cruise. Reviews like yours should be used as a template. Thanks!!

To me, the idea of using gift cards for expenses etc, would be a definite No-no. I cannot really understand the idea behind it, but then again I am English and have been brought up with paying with cash !!

Thank you for posting such a thorough review.  

Interesting hearing about your experience with gift cards. We considered using them because of a problem we had with credit card fraud. Also, a friend gave me one for my last birthday and I figured a cruise is one place that i'll be sure to use it on something fun. I'll have to rethink that plan because who needs a hassle like the one you experienced.

I enjoyed reading your detailed review.  I, too, am a big fan of The Oasis and her sister ship.  How unfortunate that you experienced so many problems with accounting.  I have never used gift cards on a cruise.
