Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
My week aboard Oasis Of The Seas, INCREDIBLE!
I finally got the chance to experience this incredible ship and if one word could describe it, it would be amazing. Oasis not only lived up to my expectations but it exceeded them. It was so much fun that while I enjoyed the ports we visited, Oasis is the real destination

First off there is so much to do that in my opinion, it would be impossible to be bored on this ship. There are 24 restaurants and 34 bars so everyone will find something to their liking

Any concerns about the ship being crowded were put to rest. Oasis is so well laid out and so much to do that I never experienced crowding. We had 8000 people total on our sailing(5600 passengers, 2400 crew) and it felt as if we had half that amount

I felt the food was very good. The main dining room did not disappoint and Giovanni's Table had excellent Italian food and service. Well worth the 15 dollar charge per person. Johnny Rocket's served a very good breakfast and I made sure to go there every morning.

The entertainment was very good. I really enjoyed Oasis Of Dreams, the comedy club, and love and marriage. Note: the comedy is definitely not clean. If you are easily offended then it is best to avoid the show.

I felt the staff was very good for the most part. My two complaints about them will come up shortly. The bartenders at the Champagne Bar were excellent. I enjoyed going there for a drink.

The two complaints about the staff:

I found the constant pushing of filling the survey and how I should fill it out to be very annoying. I don't like staff telling me how I should vote of constantly reminding me that anything less than an excellent rating is bad. Leave it up to the guest on how to vote and stop with the high sales pitch.... reminds me of a car salesman

The lack of enforcement of a dress code in the main dining room was completely unacceptable. I watched them seat many people dressed in shorts, t-shirts, flip flops and so on on formal nights. It was very insulting and disrespectful towards those that made the effort to dress formal. In my opinion, if you don't want to dress formal, then go elsewhere to eat. I hope RCCL is paying attention because the dress code needs to be enforced.

Other than that, Oasis is an incredible ship and I will definitely sail her or her sister ship Allure again
