February 2015 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
This was our fifth cruise and third RC cruise . The ship was everything promised. Very impressed with the interior of the ship. RC did an excellent job planning areas of the ship exclusively for different age groups. One of my biggest complaints on a cruise is that any relaxation time is marred by teenagers and younger people being loud and partying. I was one of those years ago but now want to be able to get in a hot tub without them. Love solarium and spent most of my down time there. Enjoyed getting in my five miles every morning on the 5th deck track. Service was superb. The entertainment, when we could get a seat was world class. Much better than other cruises.
Things to improve on. Desserts. I love to indulge in a good decadent dessert. I understand making small hand held desserts in windjammer but it would have been nice just once to have a truly memorable dessert in the dining room. Having a bakery where you could buy specially made desserts would be great.
Classes- In the past classes were a part of every cruise and did not cost extra. $25.00 to learn how to decorate cupcakes????
Making reservations for the shows was a pain. I was not told to do so before hand so I had to stand in line to get left over seats. Im assuming the large number of passengers made that necessary.
Over all the ship, the entertainment, the activities were fantastic. It was like living in fantasy land for a week. Now Im sitting here in SC looking out at the snow dreaming of Jamaica.
