Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
New Year's Eve on the Oasis
This was our 2nd cruise on Oasis. We thought it would make our grandson's grad trip a very special occasion as the Oasis has so much to offer for dining and entertainment.

A few tips if you go on Oasis:

Learn which end of the ship the dining rooms, windjammer and theater are located.You can't look out and see where you are so this helps.

Cigar Bar is located up outside steps above Solarium.Chairs for relaxing and my husband said very quiet at night.

Deck 5 is the jogging track. There are wooden chairs on aft and a beautiful place to sit and watch and listen to the wake.

Plan your entertainment so you don't miss a show. Especially enjoyed Splish,Splash(mainly diving show) from public deck 11-you have to walk through stateroom hall to get here.

Extra comedy show for family was added Friday night. Both comedians were great.

Front elevators seem to be faster.

If you have to go length of ship use the promenade or Central Park. Not as boring as walking through hallways.

We loved Amy Fickert as the cruise director. She has lots of energy and didn't waste our time talking too much after shows.

Food was good but still think Carnival has better desserts. I think the bread has improved. A bread of the day was featured each day and very good. We ate in Main Dining room both formal nights and first night. Enjoyed the Windjammer(at back) and Park cafe. Got snacks at Promenade cafe and Sorrentos for Pizza.

New Year's Eve was like being in Times Square. We watched the crowd from above the promenade in and near Diamond Lounge. We enjoyed being up above the Promenade in different areas(photo shop stairs,Diamond Lounge, Schooner Bar) for parades and parties. Easier to see.
