July 9, 2016 - Fourteen Nights on The Oasis of the Seas with Grands!!

We decided to take Ava and Claire on a fourteen day summer cruise on the Oasis of the Seas! We drove to Florida so we left a day early, stopping at the Marriott in Melbourne. All four of us were ready for a break from the car and looking so forward to a nice sit down dinner and a good night's sleep! 
 These two girls drug us to Moe's! lol. Not exactly what we had in mind. 
We had a good night's sleep and after breakfast and a couple of hours of driving, we were in beautiful Fort Lauderdale and so ready to get onboard!
There she sits in all of her gigantic glory! She is an unbelievable beauty!
We had two connecting balcony cabins on deck 12 overlooking Central Park. It was an ideal location close to the sports deck and food! It was also very quiet making it impossible to get up before 10:30 each morning! 
They spent many hours of many days flow-riding and wiping out!
Zip-lining across the ship and being fifteen stories high was so much fun!
 This is your view while zip-lining if looking down! Wow!
There are so many fun and active activities on the Oasis including wall climbing!
Ice skating in Studio B was always a nice break from the water. Ava needed a little help tightening up her skates from "Pop" Ricky but that's just one of the many things "Pop" Ricky does well!
The girls went to a daily art class in Imagination Studio and then onto the Science Lab for volcano making and other hands on experiments requiring them to wear white lab coats and goggles! Royal Caribbean has a real winner with Oasis and its many venues for the "little" people!
The Oasis has a boardwalk area complete with a carousel and home to afternoon family festivals. Several games are provided including jumping rope and ring toss. Hotdogs, ice cream and candy are always available all day in this area of the ship!
The Oasis boasts several different pools with lots of seating eliminating the need for people to be "chair hogs." The girls also enjoyed late night swims usually followed by a room service snack. We found ourselves shaking our heads a lot during these fourteen days! lol.
The Oasis has a beautiful solarium area for passengers sixteen years and older. It has a wonderful restaurant in the center that offers healthy food choices and welcomes all ages to come inside to eat, which we did several times - delicious!
The solarium was also our "go to" spot for nuts and raisins to snack on while relaxing poolside! What a life!
The Aquatheatre was one of our favorite areas on the Oasis! Entertainment included the international "not to be missed" belly flop competition! "Dreams" and "Splish Splash" were superb productions of talented swimmers and divers! Ava and Claire always arrived an hour early to secure their front row seats in the splash zone! Oh to be a kid again! lol. The Aquatheatre also served as a movie theatre at night! 
The Oasis was even more beautiful at night when all "lit up!" There was always a flurry of activity out and about the ship with parades, balloons and shopping!
The Opal Theatre was the setting for the forever popular stage production of CATS and it was FANTASTIC and so professionally done - amazing talent! "Come Fly With Me" was a showcase of top notch acrobats and was another FANTASTIC production in the Opal Theatre! The headliners were great and entertaining with so much talent! Ava and Claire looked so forward to the shows at night and were always front row as you can see in the pictures!
We especially enjoyed the "On Air" lounge for the super talented superstar passenger karaoke! The talent was undeniably present on this cruise and the girls were always front row!
Ava and Claire loved going to the Sabor Restaurant and it quickly became their favorite place to eat! Park Cafe had a great salad and roast beef sandwich! We had no complaints with any of the food or service. It was all good all fourteen days!
The girls had so much fun staying busy on the Oasis that we only got off twice during the fourteen day cruise. We got off at Cozumel, grabbed a taxi and went straight to one of our favorites - Paradise Beach! We paid $48 and obtained our bracelets and were provided with chairs and umbrellas at the beach, use of the pool which was so refreshing, use of clean bathrooms and showers and all of the water trampolines/toys! The girls spent a couple of hours climbing, bouncing, jumping and swimming! We then had chips, salsa, guacamole and drinks in their outdoor restaurant. We enjoyed the pool an hour or so and then caught a taxi back home to the Oasis! I highly recommend Paradise Beach when in Cozumel!
We also got off at Royal Caribbean's private island, lovely Labadee! The workers work so hard to provide the passengers with a pleasant and comfortable day on Labadee! They provided us with a picnic style barbecued lunch with several dining areas complete with drinks, fruits and desserts! There was an abundance of lounge chairs scattered under the shaded areas. It felt really hot in the sun but it was fine in the shade. Labadee is beautiful and makes for a great beach day!
We head back to the ship via the escalator - yes the Oasis is that large and has everything imaginable! 
As I look over these pictures and remember all the tiny little details that makes an experience a memory, my cup runneth over with happiness. It was a busy fourteen days but oh sooo much fun! I hope that one day they will enjoy reading "my story" to their children as much as I have enjoyed living it and reminiscing when blogging! We love and adore them so much and cherish our travels with them!


  1. Cured of TNBC!
    I want to take this time out as a cancer survivor to encourage women out there still suffering from this with my story on how i got a cure. The sad news about it is that i was diagnosed on my 36th birthday in 2008 and with stage 3 TNBC which after i made research was a very aggressive form of cancer at that point i decided and told myself i was going to die and that the end has finally come. All my life i never thought of having breast cancer because i was very active and i worked out at the gym several times every week and my diet was okay. In my search for a cure after 6 years of diagnosis and even after chemo which i did twice spending thousands of dollars but to no avail, until a church member told me all about Dr Aleta a herbal doctor that specializes in treating TNBC, who could help me with a permanent cure, i doubted this at first but i later gave it a try following her methods and instructions. It took 3 months and after it all i felt normal but still went for diagnosis and i was clean today i am proud to say i am a cancer survivor no nodes and i am totally free the new diagnosis confirmed it. Do not die in silence or ignorance reach her on don't be shy just speak to her today.

    his product is by far the best plan for treating fibroids naturally...the practical step by step instructions and the detailed information regarding the real cause and how to treat uterine fibroids were a real eye opener. I started dr williams medication after intense bleeding and pain which occurred during one of my rehearsals (I am a professional violinist).I was later that week diagnosed with 2 medium sized fibroids which placed an enormous pressure on my bladder. I was advised by 3 different doctors to undergo surgery to remove these fibroids as I was told that there was nothing I could do to shrink or stop their growth. Luckily, I ran into dr williams by accident as I was searching for information on the net regarding my condition. I was so relieved to have found that surgery was not always the answer, that it can be dangerous and that uterine fibroid can return even after surgical intervention. In less than 4 weeks of taking dr williams herbal portion and following his instruction, both of my fibroid had shrunk by 100% and the second ultrasound taken 7 weeks after I began taking dr williams medication, had shown that both of these were completely gone. I also my periods became regular. and now am three months old pregnant, you can contact his email address on for advice and for his product.


    Dr Williams,herbal treatment is the best to shrink fibroid naturally.

    Four months ago, I was scheduled an operation to remove a fairly large uterine fibroid (approx. 8 cm), which had caused me a great deal of pelvic pain and pressure on my bladder. My doctor insisted that there was no other choice but to go under the knife and I had reluctantly agreed (after trying several medications to decrease the size of the fibroid to no avail). It was approx. 2 months prior to the surgery when my husband comes across dr williams herbal remedies which my husband found and ordered for me online. With the help of my loving husband, I followed the step and procedure on how i should be taking it. and one months later I was scheduled for an ultrasound check: it was shocking. The fibroid had completely gone, I had consulted my doctor and cancelled the surgery and with your dedicated counseling guidance I managed to completely treat the fibroid from my uterus, along with the pain and anxiety that this condition had inflicted on me. Thank you so much for your kind help,any body with similar problem should contact him on his email address his a good man.

  8. "Dear dr williams, your herb has saved my life and my sanity. I was scared, and had been seeing numerous specialists and almost all of the straight away told me I had to remove my uterus because of my large fibroid. Can you believe this? To top it all up, none of those doctors had answered my simple questions on the subject. I was so scared that I would not be able to have a baby as surgery seemed like the only choice then. Your product had dramatically allayed my fears. I have read many other guides on the subject of fibroids and i think dr williams herb is yours offers and the only true and lasting solution to fibroid. I am a walking living proof of that claim. It has been 3 months since I implemented dr williams herbal portion, and I am now completely clear of fibroids and I am sure I am on my way to become a mother. I also feel very healthy and vibrant. Thank god for your work and support dr williams, for more information about his herb you can also contact his email address
