7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 20, 2012
Ship: Oasis of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Was my first cruise and have wanted to do one for a long time. Finally had the chance and was blown away, literally. The staff was helpful and friendly and the shows on board were very well executed and entertaining. The ship was HUGE and supplied an endless amount of things to while at sea. We actually got caught in Hurricane Sandy and experienced some turbulence but the crew carried on as if normal and I was very comfortable and glad to be on a ship of this magnitude.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffet food was ok. Seemed kinda bland and tasted like buffet food. Specialty restaurants were great but I felt like they were \"nickle and diming\" me to death. Charges to eat at \"specialty\" restaurants and charges for soft drinks. Like I said\, it was my first cruise so that may be standard on all cruises.


5 out of 5
Never a dull moment. Always activities planned or just relaxing by one of the many poools.
