Review SummaryEnjoyed the overall cruise.
*Disappointed in St. Thomas as a shopping port. Not as clean nor colorful in Charlotte Amalie. Now just another Caribbean port - they are not keeping up the downtown area. Beaches are still naturally beautiful.
*Ship offers loads to do - necessary to make advance reservations for shows and re$taurant$+.
*Mytime dining tablemates never the same due to other competing restaurants so social interaction does not develop easily. Show times and premium dining reservations redirect schedules and alter the daily dining schedule.
*Giovanni's was very good -dining outside in Central Park.
* Great for multi-generational family gatherings as ship offers many neighborhoods, parades and different activities.
* Lots of children at this time of year and travelers from different nations are represented as the ship is an attraction in itself.
* Oasis of the seas is fascinating engineering and will satisfy those looking for an extra - the Royal Promenade - a mall- at- sea, a shoppers delight !
The music at the Globe Bar was very good in the evenings.

Go early to the Windjammer on port days - hard to get a seat -
Look around buffets early as there may be more around the corner - it is quite extensive with different offerings.
