Got off yesterday and did not have this problem. Only bars that were crowded were the pool deck bars on sea days, but wait was generally no more than 5 minutes.

So glad to hear that the coffee on X has improved. We were last on in 2013 and it was gross!

That's your opinion, and we can agree to disagree. I'm in my 30s and happen to enjoy this type of music, which is similar to what you'd hear in a high end lounge in a big city. The good news is we...
I love music but....
Thanks for posting this. This music actually sounds great to me -- I hope they still have it on Reflection in 2 weeks!

The Chase Sapphire Reserve benefits are really fantastic -- I jumped at this card as soon as it was released!

This was actually my experience too across 3 Oasis sailings...

We were on the ship twice pre-refub and once post-refub, and the ship was beautiful and in excellent shape all three times. ...

I think this is spot on. I was fortunate enough to be on her first Caribbean cruise last November when her passenger load was manageable, and had a fantastic experience. I felt less crowded than I...

Can't recommend this event highly enough -- both for dancers and observers! We did it on RC's Anthem of the Seas last year and had a blast dancing. Others who were watching were also clearly having...
Feeling bamboozled by Royal Caribbean
Just want to note that these room photos have been wrong -- not just wrong but hilariously wrong -- for quite a while now. I noticed an Oasis Class JS photo posted on the RCI website as a "superior...

We're sick of traditional dining and really enjoyed DD on Anthem. In fact, it was one of the highlights of our 12-night cruise, and made the dining experience much less redundant. Some people just...

General comparisons between the two ships are abundant already on CC. I will just add, having been on Anthem once and Breakaway twice, that I would be very concerned about crowding on a Breakaway...

Are you sure an S class ship couldn't fit? I recall sailing the larger Explorer of the Seas into Kings Wharf in 2010. I just checked my pictures and confirmed... the smaller NCL ship was behind it...

Unacceptable -- you should not be put in that position on vacation, and you definitely do not owe any bartender an explanation!

Sorry to hear about the hard sales tactics. We were last on X in 2013 for our honeymoon and I was really put off by it. Interestingly, that cruise was in the midst of four consecutive cruises on...

I know I'm not alone in this, but I really hope a Quantum Class ship eventually takes over the Navigator 9 night / 5 night rotation. I'd book that in a heartbeat!

This is very exciting news -- at least 2 Oasis Class ships in Miami when the new terminal opens! Fort Lauderdale is convenient for our travels, preferred airline, etc., but it is, in a word, boring...

I watched her sail today from my window and saw her spin around and head up to Manhattan. I was wondering what happened! Hadn't seen her do that since the November pre-inaugurals for the Caribbean...

We were on last week and my wife thought it was cool around the ship at night, and was quite cold on a few occasions. I was a little chilly one night myself wearing short sleeves.

I have no doubt that the captain made every effort to not leave during the muster drill, but ultimately had no choice. However, this does not seem to be terribly uncommon, particularly during the...

So sorry to hear that! I hope she feels better quickly. :(

I really enjoyed reading your review. We were originally booked on this cruise but switched to the Breakaway to Bermuda a few months...

Enjoyed your review!

We returned from Breakaway today and apparently had polar opposite weather from your cruise -- warm and sunny the entire week -- and it made a big difference. This was our...

So sorry to hear that OP -- what a bummer. As everyone else said, you should get those charges reversed when you get out. Be nice, but persistent if you need to be.

Hope you feel better soon and...
