National Geographic TV Special – June 17th at 6:00 p.m.


Whether you’ve been on Oasis of the Seas, plan to cruise on her someday, or never ever want to go on it but enjoy cruising, I would recommend watching this National Geographic special.  For years now I’ve been watching these cruising specials related to whatever ships just because they’re sooooo enjoyable IF you love cruising, as I do.  I’ve seen specials in the past regarding Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Carnival ships … but Oasis’s making of blew me away.

Sometimes it’s even fun to live vicariously …

I can’t rave enough about the Aqua Theater.  I felt like I was back on Long Island at Jones Beach Theater <g>.  The seats were comfy, my Long Island Iced Tea was icy and delicious, and I was transported to another time, but one that had been modernized and become high tech.  The high divers (who I learned were certified cliff divers) took my breath away.  The music and show were spectacular.  The weather was gorgeous and balmy.  What a night!

What a view out to the ocean!

Here’s another escape from activity.  On sea days it can be a bit full of people, but port days and evenings are WONDERFUL here.  It’s truly a magical area of the ship.  It’s nice and big and has comfy chaises, hot tubs, a gorgeous view of the ocean all around, and a Vitality Spa for healthy meals.  I didn’t eat all my meals in the Vitality Spa area because I couldn’t commit to a totally healthy regimen for the week, but I sampled some wonderful beets roasted in honey and marjoram that stuck out as being delicious and different.  I don’t know why I don’t have more photos here.  I think I was too busy enjoying the Solarium to photograph it <g>.

This is the “heart” of the Oasis.  It’s chock full of boutiques for souvenirs, perfume, cosmetics, liquor; the Globe and Atlas pub; Sorrento’s pizza parlor; Cafe Promenade for sandwiches, coffee, snacks, desserts; a camera store;The Cupcake Cupboard (a FAVORITE of ours); Guest Services; the On Air club, a wonderful spot for karaoke (where my son WON the competition the last night of the cruise); and a wonderful Promenade for walking, sightseeing, people watching, and parades.  And there’s the fascinating Rising Tide bar that actually moves up and down three decks.  Very cool!

I have had several requests for information on the Oasis, so here are a few more photos.  I’m going to try to post a few pictures from some of the major areas of the ship to give you a “flavor” of what Oasis of the Seas is like.

Here are SOME photos of Central Park.  This light, airy peaceful haven by day transforms into a magical, fairy-lit (well, it seemed that way to me) escape from all the excitement all over the ship by night.  I loved sitting and meditating here!

Please feel free to ask any questions about the Oasis or crusing as I never grow tired of discussing either.

Remember Zoltar from the movie, BIG?

I just got back yesterday from an AMAZING cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas.  For once this author is at a loss for words <g>.  Not really, but Oasis did take my breath away.  She is GORGEOUS.   I loved everything so much that I had a hard time sitting down to relax and read on my Kindle.  Everyone knows how much I love my Kindle, so that should say it all.  I’m sure I’ll be writing and raving about the ship more and more, but I wanted to post a few of my photos right now!
