April 2016 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
April 2015 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Maho Beach was pretty fun, it was about a half hour ride from the ship and we stood on the beach and watched the planes for a while. The shopping area is amazing! Make sure that you try the Belgium chocolate there!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Just be prepared for the crazy taxi rides! We had the ride of our life here and I work on as an EMT for a living. I wanted to get out of the taxi and kiss the ground!
Nassau, Bahamas - This was just an ok port for me. People hound you to come in their shop or take their taxi. We did go to Graycliff mansion on our own. We chose not to pay for an excursion and I'm glad we didn't , we were able to walk through the cigar factory on our own as long as we purchased something. The younger man in the cigar shop was very helpful as I was bringing back cigars as a gift for someone. The chocolate shop was nice, we weren't able to go through the factory but, it was ok as it was late.
Oasis of the Seas - If you want to see any of the shows book them before you get on the ship. You can also pre-sign all of the sports desk waivers (zip line, flow riders, and ice skating) Just make sure that you check in with the sports desk to get a wrist band before you stand in line for the zip line.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida -
