I thoroughly enjoyed my cruise through the western Caribbean on the Oasis of the Seas. Wow...what a ship! The stateroom was spacious, the staff in both the cabin areas and the dining room was over the top in terms of attentiveness and professionalism. I went out of my way to request the same waiter each evening...he treated me like royalty. The services / activities on the ship exceeded my expectations...so much to choose from...and each so well executed.
I chose RCI because of the curiosity with the 'new' ship and RCI's reputation for delivering top notch entertainment. Oasis of the Seas delivered on both fronts...big time! Hairspray was a delight...the Ice and Diving shows were remarkable and the host of the Comedy show was totally (and appropriately) irreverent.
The only suggestion for improvement that I might offer is in regard to "Amy, the Cruise Director". For some reason she came across as impersonal and 'fake'....and proved it in a big way as she introduced the headliner act on Wednesday evening (which, by the way was top-notch ....an enjoyable evening of Frankie Valee music). Sitting in the front row of the auditorium was an elderly couple that had participated in the 'Love and Marriage' game the prior evening. Anyone with even sub-par emcee skills would have recalled that the elderly couple had made a big deal that it was the eve of their 60th wedding anniversary...yet when Amy spotted them in the front row of the audience the next evening (i.e., the day of their anniversary), there was absolutely no warm congratulatory wishes on her part....rather, she made a crude reference to the wife's bra size that had also been a subject during the L&M show. Clearly Amy has an edge that peeked through on occasion throughout the week...and seems misplaced as the Cruise Director for the gem of the RCI line. Just saying......
I would highly recommend the Oasis of the Seas to any and everyone! I plan to be a repeat customer.
