Oasis of the Seas

June 2017 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Mostly very good.

Favorite part was the evening meals in the dining room except for the guests ignoring the dress code, of which there were many.  Service and food in the dining room was excellent except for the deserts.  Best overall desert was the ice cream.

Stateroom was excellent and our steward was above par.

Hadn't considered the weather when we booked.  Wrong time of year for this cruise due to the outside temperatures.  Made having an outside balcony mostly useless.  Would have been better off with a less expensive ocean view.

Also there were an excessive number of children on board due to schools having ended for the year.

Food at the buffet was mostly mediocre with no variety from day to day. Best desert at the buffet were the cookies.  The gallery just does not know how to do cakes and pastries especially the cheesecake was awful.

The seas were mostly calm the ports, we barely got off the ship.

We did not appreciate the constant almost badgering to buy drinks, excursions or have our pictures taken.  Also didn't appreciate the mandatory tipping charges with no ability to opt out.

The ship was great and mostly relaxing.  The entertainment was first class.

Regal Princess

April 2016 - Regal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Let's do it again!

Had a wonderful time aboard the Regal Princess.  Everything was top notch except our experience in the Crown Grill.  Although the food was amazing, it took an hour and 2 minutes from when we were seated until our entry arrived.  

Lots to do on board The shows and entertainment were great.  Only got off the ship in St Martin.

ifistel's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Rode the water taxi to town, worth the $4.00 per person. Sat at one of the shore side bistros in the marina and had a drink. Walked around the shopping district and went back to the ship. All the liquor shops have terrific prices. They all tell you you can bring back 5 bottles. US Customs only allows on per person "Duty Free"
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Make sure you put on a high SPF sun screen, wear a hat and stay hydrated. We only got off the boat for a few minutes to explore the shops right by the dock. Since this is a US possession you can bring back all the booze you want from here.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - If our experience in the Crown Grill was typical I would not advise eating there. Yes, make your reservation for specialty dining as soon as you settle in your cabin. We waited until day before we wanted to dine and earliest seating we could get was 9:00PM and it took an hour for our food to come.
