If this is your first cruise.....congratulations, you have picked a great ship!
Warning: You will have a great time, get hooked on cruising and then any other ship (other than Allure) will feel like a "step down".
I was a reluctant cruiser but was hooked after my first cruise. Our cruise on the Oasis was our 7th. There are more people on this ship......but the ship is much bigger so it is all relative. The ONLY time I felt I was on the ship with a lot of people was when we were exiting a show.....but its the same on any ship.
When we were at sea and exploring the ship, I never felt crowded.
If you are traveling during Spring Break, expect more families with children. I have found the weather in April to be spectacular. In seven years, we have never had a full day of rain!
One suggestion/tip: if you are already booked (or book early).....the onboard entertainment/shows require a reservation......reserve the show times you want in advance (months in advance).........try to avoid waiting until you are on the ship. The same goes for excursions.
Feel free to send me another message is you have any other specific questions.
Have a great time and let me know if you make a video of your cruise!
Thanks Bruce, good info to know in advace
So I have another question, how late were the pools and solarium open everyday? Also do they auto tip, I mean are we going to be presented with a bill at the end of the cruise for dining room service tips and other?
