Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Oasis a Spring Break review
First time on the Oasis, previously cruised on the Freedom class. Flew into FLL the night before and stayed at the Hyatt House Airport. Took a shuttle over to the dock, and between dropping off luggage and boarding the ship it was 45 minutes total 10:30 arrival, 11:15 on board Oasis.

Look around and wow, there is soo much to do. Printed off tips from other Oasis reviews to help navigate and know where to go and do. This was high school spring break week, so captain announced we were completely full. It never really seemed that full though. Reserved all shows before we got on board, and they were all worth it. Had to switch a show around due to the Aqua show being canceled the night we were supposed to see it. Comedy Show FYI, don't sit up front unless you want to be picked on.

The pools were always clean, the lounge chairs on the beach pool were always reserved!!!! Don't do this! Helped some deck attendants remove some towels because people left chairs empty for over an hour. Who does this? Zip line was scary but fun.

Our room, 6230 was great. The Bars were excellent. So many different ones, and lot's of beer selection, much better than my first cruise. Yes they have Blue Moon Beer!

Dining, well that is my only complaint. Food in the MDR was okay at best. Missed the steak and chicken option every night. Tried the duck, yuck! Windjammer lacked eating options. Central Park Cafe roast beef sandwiches and make your own salad was very good. Ate at Chops one night, above average but too much starch, hardly could drink a beer the rest of the night.

So much to do on this ship, it really astounded my wife and I every night. Watched all promenade parties on the rising tide bar, had the best seat in the house. Because it was spring break week they moved Bahamas from the first day to the last so we high tailed it from FLL to St. Thomas. Didn't feel the ship rock, but it definitely rolled from side to side in high tides the first two nights. The second day my wife and I were seasick.

All in all can't wait to do it again, probably western Caribbean on allure.
