Oasis of the Seas (Part 3)- Jamaica and Mexico

In continuation of my last post, the second port we stopped at on this cruise was Falmouth, Jamaica. Beautiful place, but too bad i didn't take many pictures. We didn't going any excursions on this port because i was with my parents and they didn't want to do anything and i didn't want to do anything by myself. It was also realllllyyyyyy hot, so lugging a huge camera around just drains me of my energy.

This port was mostly shopping. The first thing you do when you get off the ship is SHOP! Everyone rushes into International Diamonds and goes gaga over everything. I mean i would too if i had hit jackpot on the ship's casino, but i didn't so i can only look at all the pretty sparkly things :)

Taking a picture of the port from the buffet. Decided to eat lunch first before i head out to a full day of walking under the sun.

When the ship is parked there like that, doesn't it look like the island grew a condo out of nowhere?

People were dancing to the music
The last port we stopped at was Cozumel, Mexico. I've been here before on my last cruise, but luckily it was the opposite side, so it was still a new experience for me. We actually went on an excursion here. I bought the package for a The Mayan Ruins and Island Overview. You know those people who predicted the end of the world? There was a lot of history there, but sadly we didn't have a lot of time, so we didn't get to see much on this excursion. Too much talking to tell the truth, and i seriously don't mind the history lesson, but when mosquitos the size of my palm are flying around everyone trying grab a free lunch, that's when i get cranky. And nobody likes a cranky Sandy.

On the brochure there was this infamous castle like ruin right beside the sea, and i was pumped up to finally see it (that was the main reason why i chose this excursion), but then we didn't even have time to see it. the tour guide said it's a 2 hour hike from the entrance, and we only had an hour total for this place! How frustrating! False advertising!

Jack Sparrow there was charging people money to take pictures with him
A tomb for women

After we left the Mayan Ruins, the tour guide took us on an Island overview. We went to this beach…well i wouldn't call it a beach because the waves were much too big and too dangerous, but it was beautiful!!! I stood a bit too close to the waters although i thought i was far enough, but in a blink of an eye the waters came rushing towards me and i managed to run in time except i got my shoes completely soaked! The waves were realllllly strong. There were also lizards everywhere but i couldn't get close enough to one to take a picture.

A little beer/snack hut

Walking back to the ship, there happen to be a smaller Carnival cruise also in Mexico. Look at the size difference! It's like Shark and fish

Oasis of the seas (part 2)- Labadee, Haiti

Our first port of call was at a private Island in Labadee, Haiti. It was BEAUTIFUL, with multiple beaches. The sand was a bit rocky and a bit hard to walk out into the water but the sight was still very pretty. There lies one of the world's longest zip lines.

See the zip line above the water?….yea probably a bit hard to tell, but look for those 2 yellow balls

Royal Caribbean- Oasis of the seas cruise (picture heavy)

This is an over due post, but back in October, i treated my parents to a cruise, since they've always wanted to go on the largest ship in the world. And i have to say, the ship is really megasized. My eyes bulged out of my sockets just starring at it. I didn't take a lot of pictures on this ship, at least not a lot of good ones, let's just say being on a ship that's basically just eating and lazing around can make you kinda…well… lazy.

They had a good time though, that i'm happy about. I did too, but i didn't get to do a lot of activities i wanted to because i'd be doing it alone, and i didn't want that. Next time when i go with friends, i think that will be a lot more exciting.

We went on the West side this time. The 3 ports were Labadee- Haiti, Falmouth- Jamaica, and Cozumel mexico. We took off from Ft. Lauderdale Florida.

One of the many pools on the ship

This is the Solarium where only adults can enter. Yay for no screaming kiddies. theres also a jacuzzi and a buffet

I make sure to at least walk three rounds on this walk/running track that goes around the entire ship. Ate too much. Urgh.

The Royal Promenade 

The rising tide bar


I go on the marry go round every day haha. There are always more adults than kids on it

Sometimes when i can't sleep, i'll come out for a midnight stroll around the ship

Another parade featuring dreamworks. Remember How to train a dragon?

We can also learn how to mob dance.

A HUGE mob really formed

Sometimes i'm tired so i stay in my room to watch some superman

Sometimes i catch really nice sunsets

When we stopped at a port, i happened to catch a carnival ship with my sunset pic

Cake making contest with the three captains. this was HILARIOUS


Sometimes i learn how to make baloons 

On the last day, they had a huge party at night at the Royal Promenade

Even Kung fu Panda came out to play

Felt like an all age night club!
