Oasis of the Seas

September 2016 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Another great cruise on the Oasis

This was our second time on the Oasis.  We are loyal to Royal and have cruised on the biggest and smallest in the fleet and love all of them.  The Oasis is massive and has so much to do and see.  We particularly liked this itinerary of St. Martin, San Juan, and Labadee, Haiti.  No shore excursions were planned, as we like to get off the ship and wing it.  We had a balcony on the beginning of the 'hump', so we had a bit more room.  All of our dining experiences were wonderful and we ate at Sabor and the Bistro as far as specialty dining.  We have already booked the Harmony for next year's anniversary.

Adventure of the Seas

September 2015 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Most wonderful!

San Juan has to be the most beautiful port to sail out of.  We have sailed the AOTS from San Juan previously, and the sailaway at night is just breathtaking.  We loved our itinerary, the ship was top notch, service was great, no issues whatsoever.  Just a few details of our trip, if you are interested:

*  Stayed in SJ the night before at the Acacia hotel - nice boutique hotel just a few feet from the ocean.  We could see it from our balcony.

*  Sunday in St. Thomas, we decided to walk to the cathedral for mass.  A verrry long walk, but glad we did it.  Took a shuttle back, though!  Some shops were closed on Sunday, but we always enjoy walking around.

*  St. Kitts - had never been here before so took an island tour.  Loved it! 

*  Aruba - We walked around town all day.  Took the free trolley that we thought would bring us around a bit, only to be dropped off about six blocks from where we had gotten on.  No biggie, but you might want to ask about this first.  Since we were here at night, we took the sunset cruise.  Beautiful!  It was on a catamaran, booked through RC, and was very relaxing.  Recommend!!

*  Curacao - Had to buy cheese here!  Just walked around.  The swinging bridge was out for maintenance, so we had to ferry across.  Love the iconic, brightly colored buildings along the waterfront.

*  Upon return, we stayed at the Chateau Cervantes in Old San Juan and this was within walking distance of everything.  We arrived at the hotel at about 7:30 am but couldn't check in until 3, so they held our luggage while we explored.  Visited the nearby fort (interesting!!!!), walked the cobblestone streets, ate pastries, walked along the waterfront.  Love San Juan!!  In fact, we booked another cruise for September on the Oasis and SJ is a port of call so we are excited to go back.

 

Overall, one of our favorite cruises, although all on RC have been wonderful.  Two more booked for 2016!

luziana73's Tips

Liberty of the Seas Liberty of the Seas - If you have children, you may want to monitor their tv watching. Some things we saw were very racy. Also, overall, ship tv is awful.
Oranjestad, Aruba - Check on the free trolley and its destination before you board. Everyone was ordered off at the end of the line and we had to walk back.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Tour the fort near the pier. Amazing views. There is also a restaurant (forgot name, starts with B) that invented the Pina Colada.
