They had some cute sail boats on the tables, and you know me and sail boats :D

We decided to head upstairs and get some drinks to get our vacation started :D.

 

Well, It had started long ago, but you get me.

Ok, let's talk drinks. Most liquor is around $9.50 to $11.95, plus the 18% gratuity. But here is the issue, most drinks are weak. Please note that I say most, there were a few which were very strong. But that really depends on the bartender. My rule would be if you plan on drinking more than 5 drinks a day, just go ahead and buy the $55 a day package. You will end up saving money in the end.

 

Also keep in mind that the last few days of the cruise, they offer select packages with a certain amount of drinks (on our cruise it was 10 drinks, I read different amounts for different cruises). That narrows each drink down to $9.33 including the tip. Which is not bad, if only it had been offered to me on the second to last night, right after I bought a $18 martini :rolleyes:.

 

I guess that it all depends what kind of drinker you're, and how you can manage your wallet the best day possible.

These two drinks were one of the few good ones. They were on fire, I loved them.

Woohoo! Looking forward to reading you review...I have been eyeing the Harmony of the Seas for next year and only thing really holding me back is some criticism of it not 'feeling' like a cruise but more like a shopping mall. It's pretty expensive and I'd hate to blow 3G's on a cruise that's disconnected from the ocean....as the ocean, for me, is the draw of cruising.

 

Saying that I like reading your review the most, with JIMZIM's reviews a close second as your reviews are, as you said, unbiased...and you also don't get hung up on the little things that seem to make some people really upset.

 

I do agree with you on the gym/spa being in the dark..What is up with that? I had a spa balcony on the BREEZE last year and it was so awesome because of their views.

 

So anyway, carry on...looking forward to learning all about the Oasis, and who knows, maybe you'll convince me to try the Harmony after all.:D I've been pretty loyal to Carnival, and even after being on a short Disney cruise...I still love Carnival....but maybe I should give RC a shot.

 

Keep up the good work Gambee!!!

I usually leave a little extra cash, sometimes it helped, and others it did not. By help I mean stronger drinks of course.

 

Oasis%20of%20the%20seas%20day%201-181_zpskpcesybg.jpg

 

This is a new for me, I will be posting some of my checks. I think it will better help people plan their upcoming vacations, and whether or not they have to buy the package. I hope it helps.

 

Drinks have really gone up in price since our last cruise on the Allure. Great bartender by way, nice fellow :)

We took our drinks and started walking to the boardwalk to wait for our room. My bag was really heavy, and I needed a break.

Mom with the drink in one hand and the phone in the other, her natural state, LoL. She is going to kill me :D

We sat down and started to relax and enjoy our drinks.

Then I decided to take out my go pro and take a few pictures. And that is when I noticed this.

 

Oasis%20of%20the%20seas%20day%201-190_zpsaxjngpcf.jpg

 

I have to admit that I was a little upset, why could it not had broken a few days before then. I did not even take one picture, and the housing was completely broken. I still had hope that I purchase one on-board, or on a port of call. But I guess at least it was not a major breakdown from my main camera.

 

I hid my frustrations from mom, I would not let something like this tear down my cruise. But yeah, I was pretty pissed off for a few minutes :mad:

 

Piece of crap :D

Once our room opened up, we headed there to drop-off the back pack. The room was nice, and we knew exactly what to expect. We also met our room steward Putu, and asked him for a few specifics that we like. Nice fellow, always there to help.

I do agree with your assessment of the spa and gym. It almost seems like an afterthought on Oasis class. Probably one of the very few negatives about the ship IMHO

OMG that shower is a dream!!! And then the worst part is that I have to come home to my stream of water leaking from the roof :D

 

RCCL spoiled me!

While I tried to book our Cats show, but the only one that we could go to was sold out already.

At one point mom spotted our bags, they took quite a while to get onboard.

After we relaxed for a little while, we left the room and went towards the teens club section.

We went into the arcade area, they had a really nice setup there. Plenty of games to keep kids occupied.

There is a little store across from the arcade. It was closed at the moment.

 

I saw a few fedoras there, and regretted not brigging mine. That won't happen again!

We walked towards the aft of the ship, and I took some more shots.

They usually have the same food here, and I think it is tailored towards the younger crowd.

They have table tennis setups there. They also hold tournaments and such. I do not recall these on Allure, are they new after dry dock?

They have these really cool chairs, which are actually really comfortable in the teen area.

We headed towards the flow rider. This guy brought his own boards, we saw him in the park cafe having lunch. He was quite good. He actually came in second on the Oasis tournament on the last day of the cruise, albeit my mom said he should have won. She said the judges were not fair.

While mom enjoyed the view, I went to the aft bar to get a refill on my drink. The old one seemed to have whole in the cup.

 

At one point the couple next to her asked me to get a picture of them. On day Gambee, one day, patience pays.

 

Oasis%20of%20the%20seas%20day%201-277_zpszxytugzj.jpg

 

Someone asked to get the price of Black Label. It is $9.50, like I said all drinks stay in that range.

 

Oasis%20of%20the%20seas%20day%201-274_zpsz23mcpw6.jpg

 

The flowrider was quite busy already.

 

Oasis%20of%20the%20seas%20day%201-275_zpse1cifq29.jpg

 

Of course mom said she did not want another drink, but we all know how that goes :rolleyes:

Mom was feeling a little hungry, so we started heading to the windjammer.

The teen area seems nice, but I still think the one on Breakaway is the nicest one that I’ve seen. Although the recording studio is a really nice touch to enjoy with newly made friends.
