Oasis of the Seas

May 2016 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

35 yrs+ reccomended, Food average. Expensive shopping

The boat was a lot of fun and had plenty of activities for kids as well as adults. The shopping they had was limited but definitely more upscale featuring Tiffany's jewelry, Michael Kors, and other shops along those lines. However, you do get great deals on liquor and other merchandise because it is duty free. Watch out for the little things though, I had to buy a box of Advil regularly priced at $4.00 was $12.00. The staff were very friendly and quick to pick up after you. The dinners in the evening that were included were all pretty good except for a few select entrees. The buffets for breakfast and lunch are a whole other story. We probably ended up eating 12 burgers between the two of us because it was the only thing that was edible. Also, one night we woke up in the middle of the night and decided to get a snack and literally nothing was open except a pastry shop that had two options that sounded awful. Another thing to look out for is after a certain time (not sure when, maybe midnight) they charge you $4.00 to order room service as a "late night delievery fee" which in my option is basically stealing from the customers because if nothing is going to be open late at night yet, the only thing thats open is room service and you're going to charge me for it? That's false advertising when it says "24 hour all you can eat". You can tell the cruise entertainment such as the Headliner Show was directed at the 35 and up age group. This was advertised as a family event yet within the first 5 sentences the performer was making fun of anyone under the age of 35 for not knowing specific artists from the 50's to the 80's.

slnewman's Tips

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Shopping for jewels here is so easy and you can get them very cheap. However, you can tell the area also has a lot of poverty.
Nassau, Bahamas - Spend some time having a couple drinks or dinner at Senior Frogs. After wondering down the two streets of shopping you'll be ready to ditch the poverty infested local areas
Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - Put spending extra on food. Royal Caribbean should be embarrassed that Carnival SERIOUSLY surpassed you.
