I'll make this review simple here. We wanted to cruise on the Oasis of the Seas because it is the largest cruise ship in the world (OK, the Allure is one inch larger!). It was more than everything we had expected. The ship itself is "humongous." The Boardwalk and Central Park are amazing. Yes, real trees in Central Park and all open to the beautiful sky.
The shows are truly amazing! We saw the Comedy Show (really funny); Hairspray (probably as good as at the theater in the States); the Water Show (divers from 50 feet, what can I say; and the ship was moving at about 24 knots -- truly amazing); Ice Show (as good as in the States); and the Main Show with high flyers and great costuming.
The two parades were equivalent of Disneyland, minus the floats. The young children were just amazing to see at them.
The MDR had great food including lobster on the second to last night. We were My Time Dining which always worked out well. The speciality dining (cost more but worth it) was special; especially 150 Central Park (loved that unique martini and the Kobe beef cooked to perfection), Vintages (for tapas) and Izumi (great sushi).
Our inside stateroom was efficient (loved the shower; but not certainly for the overweight types). The room was so dark (but we loved it) and we slept the first night till almost 9:00AM (pretty rare for both of us).
We thought that Amy, the young Cruise Director, was amazing. Always up and seemingly everywhere. When did she sleep?
We were so impressed with this ship and its family atmosphere that we will plan a trip for our whole family next year.
