Great design. Easy balcony access, and adequate storage space. The bathroom design in excellent. The round shower is very roomy, the largest of any on any of the 10 ships I have sailed on. Got a low price, and the cabin on deck 6 is just above the life boats. No problem with the view however.  Read entire member review.

WOW! by rjr73172
I will have to say the room was small but not as small as I expected. We had an ocean view balcony room and the view was outstanding and it was often relaxing just to sit on the balcony. The bathroom was tight but again this was expected. Your on a ship and not in a hotel. I also would like to think I am going on the ship for activities around the ship, not to spend a lot of time in my room. I can honestly say I don't think I seen the people next to us except once on the balcony. I would say if you going on a cruise to stay in your room, I would choose to stay on land in a hotel which can be very spacious.  Read entire member review.

Our cabin #6716 was aft, and convenient to all dining venues and the promenade, boardwalk and central park and guest services. This ship has both aft and forward areas to leave the ship for excursions which made leaving the ship so easy. Balcony did, however, overlook the lifeboats.  Read entire member review.

Great quiet location on the aft port side of deck 9. A nice balcony with two chairs and a table where we could enjoy coffee in the morning. Due to the size of the Oasis of the Seas, it was a bit of a walk from our cabin, which was 4th from the end to the lobby stairs or elevator. This was not an issue for us and we enjoyed being a little further from the main lobby areas. However, for someone who has trouble walking, you may want a room closer to the lobbies either forward or aft.  Read entire member review.

D6 balcony - First thing I found interesting was that all the cabin doors open out not in, took a few days to get used to. Room seemed smaller this time, electric outlet has been moved to a easier spot with 3 outlets. Cubby holes in the desk that hardly fit anything, the usual draws and a decent size closet with shelves. Bathroom was pretty nice with tile and decent storage area, small low sink was strange and easily flooded. Hot water was plentiful in both the shower and sink, shower was above average. One strange thing was there was so much hot water, and no cold water? Usual small balcony with room for 2 chairs and small round table. A/C shuts off if the balcony door is not locked.

Bathroom sink way too low. Two people could not be by the closet at one time. Not enough space between end of bed and wall unit where tv is. Couch too large for the size of the room.  Read entire member review.

Me and my wife have been on 4 other cruises before the Oasis of the Seas. I talked my family into going with us this time. We had 4 balcony D6 cabin and one inside across the hall for the younger ones. We had never been on RCCL but have been on Princess and NCL. I decided if I was going to go on RCCL I was going to go on the biggest they had and what I had read was the best of their fleet. The destination was secondary as long as it was warm and sunny.

We got to the port at 11:00am and we were on the ship by 11:30, very organized. Our rooms were ready at 1:00. The ship is really something to see. I mean I had looked at the pictures and the deck plans but until you are on it you really can't appreciate how big and amazing it is. There are four main pools and another one in the sanctuary. They get crowded but there is never a problem finding a place to relax in a lounge chair. One day I counted the people in or on the side of the pool and there were 85 people, but there was still room for more. That was just one of the pools. I was told there were 5800 people on this trip and it never seemed any more crowded than any other cruise I have been on. There are so many different places to go that people just naturally spread out all over the ship.

We ate in the main dining room all but one night and I thought the food was good, as good as any other cruise. It is hard to have your meal arrive really hot but there was always something the we all enjoyed. They are not that concerned about being dressed all formal, one night several us went in shorts and no one said a word to us about it. Never wore a tie on formal night and again not a problem. If you like getting dressed up go for it but I don't, I'm on vacation.The only specialty restaurant we ate at was Chops Grill in Central Park. We ate outside and it was really nice. You felt like you were in a park, the food was excellent but plan on spending 2-3 hours at dinner. We ate during the day all over the place, seafood shack- good, breakfast at Johny Rockets good omelets little waiting. Park café great salads and beef on a wick and wraps and other sandwiches. Café promenade open late till like 3am free coffee and lite menu. Nice change of pace from room service. The pizza was just OK and I really like pizza, small slices not that great.

The Royal Promenade is really like a mall. Very cool, Boardwalk was fun to walk through and check out but not much to do there. Central Park same thing fun to visit but no real reason to just hang out there. The top deck is very large. Plenty to do, Flow riders were never that busy, go in the morning at 9am and you can try it without an audience, that's what I did. Zip line fun but after the one on the private island not that exciting.

If you go with a group get a cabana on the private Island. it is $175.00 so if you have 6 people it is really inexpensive. You get a private beach away from all the 5800 other people and a special meal just for the cabana guest. Plus they give you rides around the island in golf carts so you don't have to walk all over the place and there is a lot of walking. Also they give you a cooler filled with bottled water that is iced down and just what you need on a 90 degree day. When your ready to go back to the ship they give you a ride back to the dock. I would rent one again well worth the money.

Jamaica, a couple of the group did the dunes river falls and really had fun. The port is just an outside mall with gates around it so if you want to do something you need to plan an excursion. It is nice to have the ship to hang out on when there are not as many people. Cozumel we did a Jeep and snorkel tour with All Pro tours. I would not recommend it. The drive was long and hot the beach was a joke, there were no real amenities, the Myan ruins were one building that was 10 x 10 and 6 feet tall. The told a brief story and that was it. The snorkeling was challenging even going into the water from the beach. There was a current that you had to fight the whole time. We have snorkeled all over the place and this was the most difficult of all of them. The description is deceiving it made it sound like it was for beginners and it's not.

All in all we had a really good time the Oasis of the Seas is worth the extra couple hundred dollars just to sail on her. My family that has never cruised before and all want to go on another one so they had fun to. It will be difficult to pick another ship after going on the Oasis.

One last thing the back of desk 12 and 11 all the way down the hallway is a door that leads to a small balcony. They are on both side of the ship and there was never anyone there. This is a great place to watch the Aqua show. We did that instead of going to the seat down below. We were on deck twelve that is how I found the balconies.

ROOM 12322 - great balcony, nice size room. Close to back balcony overlooking the Aqua Theatre. We loved that back balcony, got tons of great photos of ports and the islands. We watched the Aqua Show from that balcony. We did not like Port Side of the ship on this trip as the ship always docked Starboard. Beware, the ports of call dictate which side the boat docks to - so you cant always say Port side is bad. Be prepared to walk a lot if you are at very front or back of boat! Room Attendant RUDY WAS AWESOME! HE GETS AN A+++++++ Shower was nice for the size with shaving foot bar for the ladies. There was no weather channel on the TV, only predictions on the Compass. We would like some sort of active weather alerts. We loved our room. Next cruise however, we are going Starboard mid ship balcony. We will always cruise with a balcony room facing the ocean - too many beautiful views - great photos and HAVE BREAKFAST OUT THERE - ITS FREE EXCEPT THE TIP to the wait person who brings it. We totally enjoyed breakfast on the balcony. Bedsheets were the most exquisite we have ever slept on - fantastic! Beware the stuff in the fridge is not free. We took the water out and stowed it so we could keep beers in there. Plenty of space to stow luggage and unpack clothes!  Read entire member review.

#12538 Deck 12, Room 538. Great location. You are right in line with the bridge so you can see officers every once in awhile. The bed is near the closet. I thought the room was a decent size for a cruise ship. We didn't use the balcony very much because our neighbors smoked the whole time. Very close to the elevators, the pools, and the Theaters. A bit of a walk to get to food. Otherwise a great location!

OASIS..AMAZES by 2much2sea
Cabin 12556. This was across from a door that the crew uses, but we really didn't hear them that much. We loved this location. Starboard side is definitely the best. We loved being up so high, 12th floor. We were also close to the elevators, but you can't hear them at all. These rooms are a bit smaller than some other ships but designed well to put everything away.  Read entire member review.

We brought 3 suitcases, and there was plenty of room to hide them in the closet. Lot's of storage everywhere. Nice TV too. We picked a location near an elevator. It was always quiet. It was great for us. No complaints.  Read entire member review.

What took me so long! by 747BlueQuest
My cabin was on the 14th deck - 14558 (starboard side - ocean view balcony), across from the kids adventure area and just below what I think was a hot tub. Yet, at NO TIME did I encounter any noise what so ever. Not from the hot tub users are the kids across the hall. In fact, it was so quiet and peaceful that several nights I actually fell asleep on the balcony enjoying the sound of the water below (it sounded like a waterfall, very very peaceful). I wished I could have packaged the sound and brought it home with me. Actually, that was one of the most memorable part of the trip; sleeping on the balcony listening to the ocean in total darkness. If I am sailing on this ship again I would definitely request this room again. Don't let being across from the adventure program fool you. It is very very quiet.  Read entire member review.

Our Cabin was very nice, with a nice balcony. We were very close to the Elevator. It was along walk to the Dining Room, but we were close to the Spa, and Opus Theatre.  Read entire member review.

Bed near balcony lay out. Plenty of outlets, good storage, Shower was smaller than expected (about the size of a transporter pad on Star Trek. Some noise from above (scrapping of chairs, high heels) but not enough to be a bother (maybe one or two noises a day, ending by midnight).  Read entire member review.

One Big Ship by tartan3700

Exactly as expected and we had no problems. Starboard balcony view, deck 15, mid-ship. Immaculately cleaned by lovely woman. Quiet and comfortable stateroom. Bathroom cramped but adequate. TV was live only for shipboard announcements, but again that is what we expected.  Read entire member review.
None
Very little drawer space. No tissue holder in bathroom. Metal rack in shower slots too wide . Everything falls through unless placed carefully. Glasses had no rack on walls as on the older ships. Being a builder I saw several areas that were compromised compared to the Freedom class ships.  Read entire member review.

Fantastic Family Fun by Tom Newton
Good cabin overall, always disappointed that the smoking and non smoking aren't better separated. Smoking should, in my humble opinion, be restricted to the rear of the ship so, whilst in motion, the smoke doesn't pass the non smoking cabins. The cabin attendant was great, with his towel sculptures which delighted both us and the kids each night. Made the beds up perfectly and kept everything spotless. Unfortunately, my wife left behind her companion (George, a soft toy/sleeping aid) and he's never been returned so who knows. maybe he's out there enjoying the high seas?  Read entire member review.
