Review summary

Loved this cruise, would definitely return to Rayol Caribbean cruise line. Oasis was fantastic.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Embarkation was really easy & smooth, it was a couple of hours late leaving the port, however there was plenty to keep you occupied and well fed with delicious food in the Windjammer. The waitstaff & ship employees were so pleasant, helpful, & seemed to really like their jobs. Always had smiles on their faces and more than ready to help. We met our room attendant, Juan, he was very nice & attentive throughout the whole cruise.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main dining room was clean & doos was delicious. Waitstaff was very nice. The specialty dinning was excellent as well, we loved Giovanni’s & Chops grill, food & staff was amazing. Izumi on the other hand less than desirable, we are in the sushi side, did not like the sushi at all, & waitress never smiled, seemed rushed even though there were only 3 tables on that side. The Habachi side sounded really fun though, wish we would have tried that side. The buffet at the Windjammer was awesome. The staff was amazing as well.

Windjammer Marketplace

Izumi Japanese Cuisine

3 out of 5

Sushi is eatable but not great, waitstaff not as friendly don’t expect much in the smiles department, however, the Hibachi side sounded like they were having a blast, should have went that way but was really wanting some sushi.

Chop's Grille

5 out of 5

Food was excellent and waitstaff very friendly. Restaurant was very clean.

Cups and Scoops

3 out of 5

We went there twice, staff not polite either time, just very matter of fact, never smiled. They were out of waffle cones by the second day & flavors of ice cream. When asked if they had a certain flavor, they would say if you don’t see it we don’t have it. But what they did have was food, go early if you want anything specific though

Giovanni's Table

5 out of 5

This venue was excellent, well worth the money. Food was very delicious perfectly cooked and flavorful. The wait staff was great as well! Definitely return to this restaurant on our next cruise.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
This ship had a lot of fun activities the wave runner, & rock wall was really fun. Decent night activities to keep you occupied.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
We loved Frozen ice show it’s a must see as well as the band 7th heaven, really enjoyed those shows. Didn’t go to Cats, seen it on Broadway & didn’t like it so didn’t waste our time. Others on board who did see it, mostly said they walked out as well. Come Fly with me had a couple of good parts however most of it was painful to watch. Only 2 of the main singers could actually hold a note & the dancers looked like they had no idea what they were doing. The flips & trampoline act was only parts enjoyable. We didn’t get to see the Oasis flying high show, the wind was really bad so they had to cancel the show the 2 nights we were planning on seeing it.

Children's Programs

We didn’t have any children with us

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone in the service areas were incredibly attentive, nice, & helpful. Our room attendant was Juan, who was great at his job!! Always there & available, took care of anything we needed.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was very clean, really liked that they had sanitation hand bottles everywhere. There was even an attendant at the entrances to make sure everyone used it. Especially in dining areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The size was very comfortable and clean. We loved the balcony picking the slightly larger balcony was worth the money. Only down side was that someone was smoking on their balcony a few times & it would come over to ours, we aren’t smokers so it did slightly hamper the enjoyment at times, esp. when we wanted to have the door open in the evening to just enjoy the ocean smell & breeze.

Had a great time, we did the SkyView, Bobsled, & Zipline tour. Our driver took us on a tour of Jamaica & to his favorite eating stop for lunch for some authentic Jamaican food. We had a great time.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We did the Snuba & one tank Scuba dive. It was really fun. It was my husbands first experience at Scuba which he really enjoyed. Seen much better reefs to dive but we got to see a stingray, puffer fish, spiney lobster, moray eel, a lot of fish 🐠🐟

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Went really smooth, we had breakfast in the Windjammer while we waited for the crowds to thin out, baggage was waiting for us all ready to go when we were ready.
