Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Wonderful 1st Cruise with Royal Caribbean
Fabulous trip overall - 1st time cruisers with RCI - not disappointed at all! There was a trivial thing that annoyed us - the aggresive baggage handlers at the Fort Lauderdale port. They would 'remind' you repeatedly that they handled your bag - pushing for a tip - they 'handle' your bags from the sidewalk to the baggage cart - about 3 feet!

Check-in was flawless and took less than 15 minutes - they have it down to a science.

As we walked onto the Oasis - all of us were just astonished at the size of the ship and all of its amenities! It is a floating city! Our balcony stateroom was great - we totally recommend getting an outside balcony as you will totally enjoy it everyday of the cruise. Our room attendant was the nicest young lady and took care of all of needs. Food was . . . amazing . . . especially at Chops Grille and Izumi japanese restaurants - more than worth the cover charge. The main dining room has excellent food also. We enjoyed the comedy show and the game show (The Quest - adults only) and played bingo to try and win a cruise. There is always something to do while onboard.

Ports - Labadee, Haiti - pretty beach, very rocky walk into the water - take water shoes, extremely hot & humid, nice BBQ lunch served onshore - vendors are way too pushy as are the beach attendants.

Falmouth, Jamaica - didn't stay around here - took bus tour to Montego Bay area - was okay - not overly impressed.

Cozumel, Mexico - Took taxi to shopping area (not the shopping area by the pier - watch the vendors there - especially at the Silver Expo store - buyer beware if using credit card for purchase - done as pesos only and then you have to pay a currency conversion charge and the pesos they charge is not the "quoted" US dollar price!)- found a few nice shops and eating areas - was an okay port. We did enjoy the submarine adventure we went on the best.

Will not revisit these ports but will DEFINITELY cruise on the Oasis of the Seas again - it is a wonderful ship and has many amenities to enjoy - was a great and relaxing cruise.
