July 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Oasis of the Seas
The name fits
The first few days are overwhelming. It is a huge ship and there are a lot of things going on (maybe too much, it's hard to make it to all the events you would like to try). The food is good, I hate how much is wasted. Some of the meals featured in the dining room is also in the buffets but it is nice to sit down to a nice conversation and not be surrounding by kids running around (which seems to be a thing that some parents find acceptable). Be mindful that not everyone has good manners, but you are on vacation...try to ignore it! Plenty of space to hide away, the ports were beautiful. Make sure you have something planned for Falmouth since there is nothing there. The private island is also good, nice and relaxing. You don't have to do anything but bring your towel. I did not purchase any of the extra island activities. Walking around and playing on the beach was enough for me.
