Adventure of the Seas

July 2018 - 7 Night Bahamas (Cape Liberty Roundtrip) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas

June 2017 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Oasis of the Seas

Great cruise

Went with a group of 10. Picked this ship for the amount of stuff to do onboard. The ports don’t really change up on this ship. Events can become crowded with so many people on board. Ports of call will also be crowded with so many people. Overall very enjoyable

Grandeur of the Seas

November 2016 - 12 Night Southern Caribbean (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Grandeur of the Seas

Great cruise

The Grandeur has some of the best ports. The ship is smaller and you are able to do just about everything that ship offers. There is less crowding at ports and during excursions since less people are on board.

Grandeur of the Seas

April 2015 - 10 Night Western Caribbean (Baltimore Roundtrip) Cruise on Grandeur of the Seas

Best ports

The Grandeur is our go to cruise. Close enough to drive to and offers longer cruises and many different ports. The ship has great ocean views from all the main levels inside the ship. Something you have to go out side to see on the larger ships.

Oasis of the Seas

November 2014 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Oasis of the Seas

First cruise

Kind of spoiled ourselves by going on the oasis as our first cruise. It was almost brand new and you cannot compare it to the older ships in the fleet. Only wish the ports of call would change up a little. Over all it is a ship for family’s and kids.

Cruise Tips

Nassau, Bahamas

Don’t buy the conk shells they sell in the markets. You will be forced to leave them on the dock. Saw a whole pile of them last cruise. Then they resell them to unknowing tourists.

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

If you have the ultimate drink package you can use it on all Starbucks purchases on the Grandeur. This is an extra charge on larger ships

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

The week of Thanksgiving had over 500 kids on board. The week after had 20. The 10 and 12 night cruises have a lot older crowd. Entertainment options for kids is pretty slim if you compare to a oasis class ship or larger

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

If you have the top drink package Starbucks is included on this ship.

Nassau, Bahamas

Did the blue lagoon excursion. Was very nice be prepared for long lines to catch the boat to the island.

Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas

Bring the cruise compass with you. There is so much stuff going on all he time. You don’t want to miss out on anything.

St. John's, Antigua

Did the lobster snorkel catamaran. By far the best private beaches in the Caribbean.

Castries, St. Lucia

Did the beach break at Reduit beach. Beach was great. Most people stayed in the water to avoid the salesman who were on full force on this trip.

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

It’s a smaller ship with great views of the ocean inside all the main levels

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Went to the Dutch side to the beach by the airport. Long taxi ride and the beach was very small and crowded. Water had a horrible current and was pretty steep to get to the water. Not recommended for elderly or small kids. Ended up going back to the beach next to port and had a good time there

Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas

Keep a cruise compass with you. There is always so much stufff going on you will miss some thing.

Cozumel, Mexico

Did the mayan tulum excursion. Was a bit of a bus ride but worth it. Lots of walking when you get there.

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

Nice experience. Water had a lot of seaweed along the shore and a little rocky. Bring water shoes. Once you get past the rocks and sea weed the water was great

Grandeur of the Seas

Grandeur of the Seas

On the 10 day or longer cruises it’s a older crowd. The week during Thanksgiving there was over 300 kids. The week after there was 10. Some of the best ports of call are found on the Grandeur.

Castries, St. Lucia

Went to Reduit beach and was very disappointed with the harassment from the locals. Been to many islands and this was by far the worst. Water and beach was very nice. Just about everyone stayed in the water until the excursion was over to avoid the harassment.
