Days at sea – relaxing or boring?

Days at sea are for some the base of a cruise, for others the evil forced displacement between the shore excursions.

Our trip on the Oasis led us in the Western Caribbean and Mexico. We visited Labadee in Haiti, Falmouth in Jamaica and Cozumel in Mexico. And we had three days at sea.

But even if you are not a sunbather or bookworm you will find plenty of employment at a day at sea.

Of course, a day at sea, like any port day, begins with a decent breakfast. Depending on your preference you can choose one of the many restaurants on board. Depending on your mood, for example you can take a served breakfast in the main restaurant, can load up your plate at the buffet or you prefer the cabin service and a comfortably breakfast on the own balcony (If you have one).

Who would not necessarily eat at a certain time in a certain restaurant, you can inform yourself in your cabin on TV. The interactive TV shows waiting times or levels of the different restaurants and you can work around the waiting times and crowded buffet. After breakfast you have to make your choice for the day at sea. Royal Caribbean offers a variety of activities and events throughout the day. On sea days, also the one or the other big show takes place in the afternoon.

At noon there is then, of course, go back to eat. Again, it helps to look at the TV what’s going on in the various restaurants.
Afternoon you can do sometimes a little nap on the balcony or by the pool. This is not wrong on a vacation at sea;-)

But Royal Caribbean provides enough entertainment around the whole day to be busy. Swimming in one of the pools, mini-golf, ice skating, surfing, table tennis, basketball, zipline, various parades on the Royal Promenade, decorating cupcakes and much more!

With this offers even a day at sea passes very quickly and it goes again to eat. After dinner then a show and at the end of the day a tasty beverage in one of the many bars, maybe even nice live music. A day at sea is exciting and passes quickly.




Our trip on the Oasis of the Seas

With the plain numbers of the Oasis of the Seas you get pretty amazed.

In March, it finally happened, a 7 day cruise on the biggest ship in the world, the Oasis of the Seas.
Since Royal Caribbean has announced they want to build such a big ship, I was fascinated by it.
The pure data of this ship have been a marvel and when you stand in front of it, its breathtaking. But if you’re on board, you forget very quickly that this is a ship. Here, the characteristics of the vessel and soon more about the ship here at
