We went on the 9 days cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. This was partly to celebrate New Year's eve and our anniversary. The cruise was ok. The food was good but in most restaurants you have tp pay. The entertainment was excellent and the ports of calls are ok. The service is poor. We had $300 stolen from our safe that was accidentally left open. The crew did not believe us and told us to report the theft to the Fort Lauderdal Police (LOL). They finally gave us $150 credits.

The food in the dining room is very good. We didnt try the specialty restaurants because we have to pay. Even the cupcakes are not free.

Our statement room is great

The onboard activities were good. A great deal of emphasis was to make us spend money. Watch out for the vitality and spa activities. You can cost you a fortune.

Dont miss the entertainment but stay away from the Vitality and Spa

The Oasis of the Seas is a hugh ship. It is beautiful. The main attraction is the promenade where shops stay open at all hours. There are a few places where there is music but not condusive for dancing. The dance floor is either too small or there are kids all over the dance floor.

The check in was relatively quick and the welcome witha glass of wine was great. We did not get our luggage until 2 pm and by that time we were too tired to even eat. The dining room is great with many vacant tables. The food and service was great. After dinner we found out that our bathroom was not made as it still haqd our wet towels on the floor. Then we noticed that our sfae was open. We went down to Customer Service to complain about the wet towels not being replaced and that our money had been stolen. They sent a security guide to go through our luggage and drawings to ensure that the $300 was not hiding somewhere. He said that he would investigate and let us know the outcome. They never actually investigated. The first port of call is Labeeda. It is an island own by RC. The day stay there was good. The food was good but there was no music or any exciting things to do. In the evening we had dinner and saw a Broadway Show. It was good. There were 2 days of crusing and much of the time was spent in the gym or exploring the ship. There were lots of kids and hot tubs were usually full. The excursion in St. Thomas was ok. Our next stop was St. Marten. Phillipsburg was just another big shopping street full of jewelery stoes. The French side was not as commercial but more interesting. Two more days of crusing and we were in the Bahamas. The shopping was great and so wqas the tour of the island. The ship arrived at Fort Lauderdal early in the morning. The disembarkment was smooth and we then took a taxi to the airport.
