  1. Wish mine was as good. I need your travel agent. They really are fantastic price drops I’ve never had any as good as that. Well done.
  2. Having sailed the itinerary many times I’m pretty sure you will find the times of docking in each port to be long enough.
  3. Totally understand Oasis class wouldn’t be for everyone. But we’ve been lucky enough to have sailed on all on the Oasis class ships. We enjoy cruising on all class of RCCL ships and have never had a bad cruise on any of them. Oasis is our favourite class especially for the entertainment. We also enjoy breakfast most days in solarium bistro and lunch on Central Park. We've never found Central Park to be busy and enjoy our evenings out there. The lifts have really never been an issue maybe a couple of minutes wait at peak show times but most are like that and that’s the only time along with muster drill they’ve felt crowded but all do then. In peak school holiday season sure there’s many children they all have them then but again never a problem to us. We’ve only cruised HA once after about 09.00pm we found everything really stopped for the night apart from the odd bar that was open definitely not for us.
  4. This past Mediterranean season it has been 17.00 until 20.30
  5. We know each to there own and am sure others will disagree but we actually thought the buffet was the worst we’ve ever had on any cruise ship. It didn’t help with so many rude passengers always pushing and shoving as though they’d never been fed or they were going to run out of food. Certainly wouldn’t cruise on her again unless in Yacht club even then we have our doubts. Having said all that it’s a very nicely designed ship.
  6. We sailed from Venice twice last month and as far as I’m aware no final dates have been set to stop or regulate cruise ships from docking in Venice.
  7. From our experience leaving the ship via the people mover to Piaza Roma about 20 minutes. After leaving the ship it’s about a ten minutes walk to the people mover. Depending on the line and time of day maybe another ten minute wait. Then a two minutes ride to Piazza Roma. From Piazza Roma it’s about a ten to fifteen walk to the train station over about three bridges. If going to either Marco Polo or Trevisio airport it’s just about as cheap especially with four people and definitely much quicker and a whole lot easier to take a taxi than mess about with the people mover and then taking the bus.
  8. The Meraviglia YC outside is indeed similar to RCI Allure of the Seas albeit much smaller. The solarium area on AOS is quite superb.
  9. We’ve generally found the dining times posted on an information sheet in our cabin.
  10. We booked at the CDS booking desk that was alongside guest services the day we boarded in Barcelona. The show was nowhere near capacity.
  11. We don’t actually use our butlers services much.
  12. We’ve sailed many times from Venice but the terminal number often changes albeit they are very close to each other. Walk to people mover 10 to 15 minutes. Many cruise lines have a private chargeable shuttle to St Marks square. If not offered it’s about €8 each way from the dockside a very frequent service and takes about fifteen to twenty minutes.
  13. On Bellissima it was two different shows each shown four times. The same show was performed twice on the same day an early and late. We did the dinner show but wouldn’t do it again. Good show average meal.
  14. We also thought the dining room food was poor.
