Review summary

We booked this cruise for the ship not the ports visited. The spa junior suite is s great cabin on this ship. We like the open spaces on Oasis class but would take this ship again

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We parked in the garage next to the ship and they had a covered walkway directly to the checkin area. Great set up. We were on board in 10 minutes!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The Main Dining Room can get loud/noisy but we had the Coastal Kitchen available and that was great. We knew the times the Windjammer would be busy for breakfast and lunch so we worked around those times and had no problem finding a table. Food and service were great at every location. We also enjoyed eating at the Solarium too - good selection but limited and never crowded

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I did the North Star twice - no waiting. iFly was harder than it looks but still a lot of fun

Entertainment

4 out of 5
We will Rock You was outstanding. The VanHalen tribute band was what you would expect and was not for us - many people left during the opening song. Spectra’s Caberet was unusual and not something we enjoyed - talented performers but just weird

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Grest service from everyone

Ship Quality

Avoid cabin 13642 - directly below an area that is unnamed on the deck plans but turns out to be directly below a kitchen prep cleanup area

Our third time so just walked around

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Having to wait until the morning of leaving to pickup alcohol purchased on board created a big delay. Very unorganized, terrible process. Otherwise the self carry process was very fast
