Oasis of the Seas

January 2017 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Somewhat Unusual Cruise

Upon sailing we were informed that visit to Nassau was cancelled due to strong winds and rough waters.  Puerto Rico was added but we didn't arrive there until 5:30pm will departure time of 11pm.  It didn't bother me as I have been there before but many people were upset as it was already dark outside and some excursions were cancelled.  The first Aqua show was cancelled due to rough weather.  The second Cats show and the Come Fly with Me shows were cancelled due technical difficulties. The departure process in the terminal was a nightmare as our hotel shuttle bus didn't show up for 1 hour due to traffic congestion.  At the same time as our ship arrival, there was also Disney, and Norwegian Epic.  Needles to say, massive amounts of people and vehicles.  First time on the ship and didn't mind the massive size as there is a lot to do.  Booked another cruise for next January 2018.

Majesty of the Seas

November 2016 - Majesty of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Perfect short cruise

This was the perfect short cruise.  Actually there is a 3 night sailing but that is on weekends when there are mostly college age onboard.  This sailing was a mixture of first timers, seniors, seasoned cruisers and adults with kids (given the fact that school is not out I was wondering why there were that many kids onboard).  Overall, it was a good cruise and perfect weather.  Windjammer was as usual like a cattle call to chow down.  There were the usual break in line, reach overs, and of course those who use their hands instead of the tongs.

Serenade of the Seas

November 2015 - Serenade of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Good Island cruise

First time taking a cruise this long but it was worth it as there was plenty to see and do at all the islands visited.  Weather was perfect and there was enough time in each port to do shopping, sightseeing, or just beach relaxing.  The ship was nice but does need some updating in the furniture area.  Overall it was a good trip.

gpruch600's Tips

Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - Book shows early online or onboard. Book reservations for dining after seeing week menu. Day 4 of cruise they sell 10 drink tickets for $79 plus 18% gratuity. Good for drinks up to $13. All drinks are very expensive on ship including beer (6.95 and up)
Kralendijk, Bonaire - Bonaire is somewhat a new destination stop therefore the tour is so so but I understand the diving is great.
