We decided to do a month long European vacation which included a 7 day Mediterranean cruise. My wife and I and our 2 children aged 7 and 9 stayed in a grand suite with 2 bedrooms and my mother and partner in an owners suite. Having travelled on RCI and other cruise lines many times before, I was excited as this time I was taking my kids with me. Embarkation was fine although they couldn’t find my mothers partners luggage. We had to make a fuss to find it and the staff were extremely unhelpful in this regard. The ship was about to go for a refurb so I wasn’t surprised that the rooms were quite shabby and although clean, didn’t feel it. The good was that the kids had a blast however that is not unexpected on a ship of this size as the entertainment was excellent. The service from the crew was also very good. For the ports, they should drop Marseilles as it’s really a terrible port and city. The main issue with the ports was that probably due to the size of the ship or more likely trying to make more money, you are docked miles away from everything and RCI charges exorbitant amounts for transport. As an example in Marseilles they offer transport for $20 per person but they make no mention and actually go out of their way NOT to tell you that their is a free shuttle service. Yes it’s a 20 minute walk to get it but that’s just because you are docked so far away although other ships of a similar size are docked much closer. This really ruins most ports. The bad was that RCI has become a real rip off where they are charging less for cabins but almost everything is extra and at exorbitant prices. Drinks and food are ridiculous. Averaging $3-4 for a coke and over $10 for a single shot of alcohol. It seems that RCI thinks people are to be extorted. A refreshment package was $30 per day per person for coke, sprite etc all from a soda fountain. And this was waters down. The alcohol package was an astonishing $90 per day per person. Doesn’t seem much but that’s based on their exorbitant pricing. In the real world it’s criminal and a complete rip off. Excursions are the biggest joke. $500 on average for 4 adults and 2 kids under 10 for a simple bus ride, boat ride and train ride and then back on a bus. We priced the same excursion elsewhere and it was 80% less for exactly what you got. An 8 hour excursion of which you spent 4 hours traveling and 1 hour total with a guide. They were even to cheap to cut an hour off the trip by just staying on the train so we could enjoy more time on the boat. Another crime was the food. Absolutely shocking and we had access to the suite restaurants. In the windjammer food was stale, bad cuts of meat, over cooked pasta and felt like being pushed through the worst buffet known to man. The dining hall was not better. Same food just presented better. Every time food was cold and uninspired. Tiny portions made to look like it was special but wasn’t. Same in the coastal kitchen. Also our billing was incorrect and we spent ages having bills corrected as they overcharged. I would never recommend RCI to anyone and will never travel on the oasis as it’s designed to rip off the customer and take advantage of people by offering what they call “ value “ until you get onboard and you discover you could have gone on a better class of ship and probably paid less or even the same for twice the value. Celebrity, Seabourn and even carnival were far better. Check before you go as this is a joke Read Less

Really nice, smooth sailing comfortable ship that was clean, well designed, well attended with excellent room / waiter service, two flow riders, a beautiful 8th floor central garden, rock climbing, zip line, too much entertainment for us to choose from all to outstanding sites with many options for excursions. We flew into Barcelona directly from Newark, cleared customs in Barcelona that was not as smooth as Rome last year but was reasonable (about 45 minutes) got our bags and took a flat rate cab of 39 euros from the airport to the cruise terminal. Got right on board without any hassle e.g. showed our passports, got our room cards and boarded the ship by noon. Went to lunch and got into our room when it was ready by 1 pm. Had a great first day doing zip liner and flow rider, went to first great dinner (always at Grande restaurant for dinner). Second day Mallorca island off the coast of Spain went on the Drach cave tour (really nice) - really tremendous to see. Next day went to Provences of South of France visiting St. Martin and Le Beaux after seeing luminere mine art beaming of Van Gough works. Villages of France trip was wonderful. Wife got lots of nice perfumes, we had some great cheese and wine, loved the villages that had really nice local shopping with a passionate outstanding guide. Next went to Florence on the museum tour - had lunch included on the excursion that was really good pasta (lasagna) / red wine (good table) / salad / tiramisu gelato for desert. Walked through all of Florence, saw a presentation on the quality of their gold (skipped the leather presentation for more gelato for the kids on our own), went to the museum with the highlight being the statue of David by Michelangelo (truly the best sculpture I have ever seen) - the marble just glistened! The rest of the museum we could get to was darn good too. We pretty much walked and were toured through the key central areas of Florence that was outstanding. Next we went into Rome using Royal Caribbean just for the bus in and out of Rome. We went to our favorite places in Rome to visit (favorite gelato / crepe place on Nationale), Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, walked all around experiencing Rome once again (such a beautiful city). Final cruise stop was one hour boat ride to Capri (where we had a traditional spinach ravioli lunch (B-) with wine (D), salad (F) and lemon cake (B) that was at best a over all solid C, then a short ride to Sorrento where we toured through -Sorrento I could go back to, never to Capri that is way over rated (Santorini in Greece is much better / similar island) followed by a short tour of Pompei. I was disappointed at Pompeii because Rome to me has similar albeit not as ancient ruins that are grander throughout the city (Coliseum, Pantheon) that were in part restored. That tour did too much and was a bit hurried because of the busy itinerary for us, but still a joy to experience. We went back to Barcelona after eating our final breakfast (all the food was very good (great at dinners) and there was so much choice with every meal that we expect on a cruise), left our week cruise to pick up a cab, go to a hotel, stay a day in Barcelona (went to Barceloneta beach and went to Sagrada Familiar Church (must see in Barcelona)) then woke up the next day, took a high speed train to Paris, stayed in a really nice quaint hotel for three nights, went to the Louvre, went up the Eiffel tower, had a grand time on our own before flying back to Newark directly from Paris. Just a fantastic vacation with everything being great with our foundation of the vacation being the cruise and most importantly the fantastic excursions in Spain, Italy and France! Read Less

First cruise for husband and I with Royal Caribbean and first Mediterranean cruise. Ship was beautiful and clean. Always saw someone cleaning/wiping/mopping/sweeping etc...Crew was amazing, so friendly and helpful. Never felt crowded and often wondered where all the people were. I had heard the cabins were smaller than what we have had on other ships but didn't notice any difference. We had a balcony room and had enough storage space for all our clothes and suitcases. Service twice a day, wonderful steward. We had lunch at Chops and it was delicious. We tried Johnny Rockets as I'd never had it and it was good. Way too much food and wouldn't pay extra for it again but nice to try once. Ate in the MDR the rest of the time for dinners and food was so good, service impeccable. We also ate breakfast in the MDR each morning. Two choices-buffet or ala carte. We did both but preferred buffet (in MDR). We didn't eat a full meal in Windjammer (casual buffet) but did go up a couple times for a 'sweet', later in the evening. We went to several shows and loved them. Had seen some negative reviews about Cats, but we enjoyed it. Had never seen before. Aqua show wonderful, comedian funny, just can't say enough about the entertainment. This was a very port heavy cruise with only one sea day. We used Rome in Limo for our excursions. Cannot stress enough how happy we were with them. Prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and great communication. We chose private tours and was well worth the money. Cruise was a great way to get a sampling of several cities and to see where we would like to go back to and spend more time. Read Less
