Loving this review. I join her in 4 weeks.

Please could you let me know the earliest I can walk off the ship with my luggage please? Thanks

Enjoy your sea day. [emoji41]

Funny I never got any of these extras from that box store. Nothing offered maybe I should call and ask. :)

It is only offered on select sailings and not all the time. It will be a buyers choice zselection from what i remember. It will be listed when you book on the big box site.

I'm confused. Since we are too cheap to do a suite and don't have status for Coastal Kitchen, are the buffet pictures all WJ or does Coastal Kitchen have some buffet items (aka Solarium Café)?

 

Thanks.

All the buffet pictures have been from WJ.

 

Coastal Kitchen is all menu based. Suite Lounge side will have a few finger food style snacks at night.

Gotcha, thanks. The buffet pictures followed the Coastal Kitchen menu so that's what confused me (but my wife says I'm easily confused).

Forgot to mention the Sorrentos info the other day.

 

Yesterday: Beef Fried Steak (same as earlier in the cruise). Also saw late last night/early morning today the tuna melt again.

 

Today: Calzone

Back on the ship after roaming around Cozumel.

 

Had lunch and stopped by Coz Coffee Roasting Company. Other than that not much to report for the day so far.

 

Liberty is our dock neighbor and in town are ships from Carnival, MSC, and NCL alone with Royal.

Right in the port shopping area where royal docks their ship. As you walk to the beginning of the pier, take a left. It is next to senor frogs 1/2.

Sorry for the delay, final comments for the last two days...

 

Friday

 

Today's port of call was Cozumel. Our neighbor for the day was Liberty, other piers had ships from Carnival, MSC, and NCL. Total count in port was 7.

 

Took a cab to the downtown and did some roaming around and do the tourist thing. Had lunch at Palmeras, not bad. Got the chicken fajitas, lime soup, and one liter of bottled water. Total wound up being 346 pesos, after credit card conversion rate total was $18.24 USD. If you let them do the conversion it would have been 17 pesos to the dollar. After lunch, went over to Coz Roasting Company and got a spiced iced coffee. Cost was 60 pesos, conversion rate posted was 16 pesos to the dollar. Gave them a $10 and got $6 back.

 

Did some more window shopping, checked in why my Mexican government tax refund for a purchase back in December hadn't been processed in 45 days, told to wait another 50 days. Finally walked to where MSC and NCL were docked and took a cab back to the ship. Did a last bit of walking around before heading back to the ship.

 

One fun bit if no one noticed it. Oasis was turned the other way. Most pictures you see has her pointed the other way.

 

Did the normal nightly routine before the Quest. Then continued the nightly routine before calling it an early morning.

 

 

Saturday

 

Woke up to that bitter moment knowing this was the last day on board. Today was a jammed packed morning (that and it never helps the late wake up). Had the Oasis Thank You and Farewell Celebration on the boardwalk. After snagging a few things to take back headed off to lunch. Lunch was at Johnny Rockets, TA comp. Headed over to the Captain's Corner before heading back to the room for a nap. Two hours later headed for a few beverages at various bars (curse of wanting to give a few crew memebrs a final visit). Met some folks from eary in the cruise and gave them a suite tour. After that, did a quick WJ scout before dinner. Had a final dinner in CK, o e of my favorite menus. Tuna was done just the way I liked it. Also had to get the lamb shank.

 

Back to the room to finish packing before heading off for some final beverages, have some Ben and Jerry's (TA perk), and take some pictures. Got the clue to leave the Champagne Bar when they started to wash everything down. Did notice the hot item at Sorrentos was a vegetarian calzone, not the meat one previously seen during the week.

 

 

Sunday

 

Woke up, final last bits of packing the small bag (charging cords and such). Had a quick bite for breakfast, stuff grabbed the previous morning. Headed down to the Champagne Bar for 8:30 for the escorted off. Personally, don't think it was needed. The timing was between groups and the lines heading off were very minimal. Only benifit was being able to take the escaltor vs ramp. Once in the luggage hall suite folks have a dedicated lane, plus it didn't look too bad in the normal line. Did a verbal declaration for customs and off to catch a shuttle/cab back to the hotel. Think from ship to hotel was maybe 30-45 minutes.

 

Finally on the road heading home and starting the final countdown for January. Back to Oasis for the same exact route, Jr. Suite unless a last minute upgrade occurs.

 

Any questions, I'll be more than happy to fill in the gaps.

Loved the review, the pictures were fantastic. One question to start: you did "WJ recon" practically every night, would you ever consider eating there for dinner most if not all of a week? We are a family of 5 with kids 12, 12 and 9 and I'm wondering if it just might be easier to go there whenever we like/are ready. If the food is good, selection big, and we can come and go as we please, that might work real well.

 

Thank you!

I would have no issue. At the same time I'm not that picky of a person with no special/complex dietary needs. Meat in various sauces didn't bug me.

Only thing that might be lacking is the overall quality of desserts. Visually they were stunning, taste wise they didn't really "WOW" me. Now that didn't mean I overly sample them... One thing is they did have a nice ice cream bar setup.

 

I think in the end I got dinner from WJ two nights. Did some sort snack plate for the night just about every night, mainly just cheese.

 

My thought, setup a reservation for My Time Dining and stop by WJ early. If you like the WJ selection, cancel that nights My Time reservation.

That's great advice, thanks!

 

I'm also thinking that the Solarium Bistro might be a good place for breakfast and/or lunch to avoid the crowds in WJ. Did you spend much time there and, if so, what did you think? There other benefit seems to be more of an "outside" atmosphere versus most of the other dining venues. We really like to eat outside if possible, any other places to do that? Once again, thanks!
