Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans

Oct. 13-20th, 2012

Just returned from our Western Caribbean Cruise on the OASIS of the Seas, it was incredible.

The ship is amazing. There is so much to see and do. We had a balcony suite with an ocean view and the accommodations were quite comfortable.

Room service was excellent.

It is easily designed and the map to it computer beside the elevators made navigating the ship a breeze.

As a couple of foodies, it was a wonderful experience. We did all specialty dinning and were not disappointed. The food, wine and service were excellent. Dessert portions were for sharing. We highly recommend the red velvet cake at the Chop Grill or the tiramisu at Giovanni's.

The Solarium Bistro appeared to be the best kept secret on the ship as it was never busy but had a wonderful menu and romantic ambience. The pumpkin spice, coconut soup is definitely worth trying.

We pre-booked a premium wine package and learned that this list was designed for the main dining room menu. We were able to choose wines to accompany our meals. Except at 150, where we elected to participate in the wine pairing and it further enhanced the experience.

Izumi's Sushi was fantastic. Everything was so fresh and tasty.

Windjammers buffet was quite good, just really busy at breakfast.

A must try is the roast beef sandwich in the Park Cafe.

Did I mention that all the Bread is baked Fresh on the ship...Yum!

The Chef's Table was a dining delight. The portions were quite generous and pleasing to the palate.

We also pre-booked all the shows, which meant no line ups. The shows were terrific. We were pleasantly surprised.

We learned not to book anything on the first night as luggage could arrive to your stateroom as late as 8:00pm. They were however, very accommodating when we needed to reschedule a reservation.

A few other things to note: you cannot bring irons on the ship. This is a fire hazard and they will be confiscated, which could mean a visit to security.

Also, do not wear white to the Aqua show. There is a risk of some debris that could possibly ruin fabrics.

Watch for the daily drink specials and the Happy Hour savings offered at various locations on the ship.

Express Check Off is searching for your bag. However if you have a later flight, you could be standing in line at the airport for hours. There is free WIFI so it is a good time to catch up.

This was a memorable vacation and we will certainly return to the Oasis of the Seas!
