  3. Oasis of the Seas
This was our third cruise with RCCL. The Oasis of the Seas is the most fantastic ship, that I have ever been on. The entertainment options were terrific. My wife & I saw the aquatic show (compares favorably to Cirque du Soleil's O at the Bellagio in Las Vegas). We also saw the ice show, and two of the shows in the Opal Theater. We did not see the performance of Cats, as we had seen it on Broadway. The two acts that we saw were a Beatles show and Ron Lucas, a Las Vegas ventriloquist/comedian. Both of these performances were outstanding. Ron Lucas was flown in, when the production of Come Fly with Me, was cancelled due to issues with the aerial rigging, used in the show. As an introduction to Mr. Lucas we were shown clips from his performances entertaining several US Presidents as well as Queen Elizabeth. Every night there was entertainment at Jazz on 4, Dazzles, Comedy Live, the Globe Pub and in Central Park. We had a balcony stateroom # 12190. The stateroom was quite and very nice. We thought that RCCL could have provided more drawer space. Our cabin attendant was Riccardo George. He was terrific. He kept our cabin spotless. We ate most of our breakfasts and all of our dinners in the main dinning room. Both the food and the service were very good. At breakfast, the omelets and eggs took a while to come to the table. Scrambled Eggs were available on the buffet, You order off the menu and still get items from the buffet. My only complaint with dinner, was that some of the food was not hot enough for my liking. Every evening, the dinner menu had a nice variety of choices for starters, entrée and dessert. There was a classics section of the menu, which had the same items available every night. Service was excellent. We enjoyed RCCL's beach in Labadee, Haiti. There are several sections. We took the ferry boat for a quick ride to Columbus Beach. The beach was gorgeous with chaise lounges laid out under rows of palm trees. In Jamaica, I took a 3 1/2 hour tour to Montego Bay. It was interesting, yet disappointing as the only stop we made was at a marina bar that served free banana bread and coffee. They also had a full service bar, that whipped up delicious rum drinks. In Cozumel, we went with friends to Paradise Beach. I would highly recommend it. You pay for drinks and food, but that is still cheaper than going to an all-inclusive like Nachi Cocom (unless you are a big drinker). There were nice shopping area's within the port, at both Jamaica and Cozumel.
