Default JUST BACK! Oasis of the Seas - Eastern Carib. - ANY QUESTIONS??

Did the March 26 - April 2 Cruise. I'll try to answer any questions.
Big boat, rooms fine, food -no complaints for what you expect, toilets flush nice, getting aboard is A LOT FASTER than getting off, main deck (5) is like a live shopping channel, shows OK - corny like all these places, also lots of corny activities, lots of ways to spend more money, deck chairs by pool are like a sardine can, people from all over the world, mostly nice, cabin attendants a little too intrusive, guard you table at the buffet, get to the first formal night - free champagne, also free champagne at the art auctions,
anything goes on fromal nights white tuxes to t-shirts, brought a sports jacket & wore it for an hour each formal night, islands are nice for a walk-off, weather was great, don't try to sneak liquor on board,
for sick jokes, keep asking people to "press Deck 13 " on the elevators, and say "good morning Sir" to all the staff all day long , no matter what time it is...
found it all a bit repetitive by the end, ...OK, but won't be rushing back for another cruise... maybe I'm missing something.
About the 4th day I started singing the lyrics to the Beach Boys "Sloop John B" song over & over to myself...

So, if it was just OK, it wasn't worth the extra money?

Did you try the zipline or know someone who did?

I have done the Zip-line on the Oasis and the Allure and plant to do it again in my next cruise on the Oasis. Which I have booked for 4-14-2012.
I love those ships.

Hope you'll have a good time on this one, too. I'll want a report. I moved my booking for the one I had scheduled for May until November of next year when I became my dad's guardian/caregiver. I'm going to have to live through you guys for a while. And I always book mine well well in advance too.

Donna, no u do not need to make reservations. I was walking around taking pictures and they guys at zipline asked me if I want to try it;; they said there was no one waiting to go on. So I tried it; it takes longer to get you all suited up than the actual ride; make sure u leave everything in your cabin; they make u take off watches, glasses, anything in your pocket that can fall out.

When I sailed the the Oasis last year you had to reserve, but they found out that it actually worked out better without having to reserve. I did not have any problem either way.
