We had a delightful first cruise on the Oasis in early January 2014.  Initially we were hesitant to book our first cruise on a such a large ship since our primary goal was to rest and relax.  As expected, most of the public areas were always filled with people and children, however we booked a superior balcony room and it gave us just enough space to read and listen to music with the ocean as a backdrop.  We also really enjoyed the gym which was large and filled with many machines, an area for floor work-outs and on-hand trainers.  We enjoyed the Solarium restaurant because it seemed to be a little more healthy, and of course the meals in the Main Dining room were not so healthy, but they were wonderfully prepared.  The downside to our experience was the constant commercialization and ammenity sale.  From the time you board until you leave, there is a constant barrage of selling photos, drink packages, upgrading to restaurants for pay and even the privately owned island was about add-on sales.  


We are glad we took this trip, however our next cruise will be on a smaller ship with all ammentites paid!

Ship Tip

Great workout area; Cozumel was the best day trip, the other two ports were not worth the effort and cured our desired to ever take the Western Carribean tour again.
