Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Pack a lunch
First the positives: Oasis is very interesting. The shows were excellent, with high quality performers. Our room stewardess was excellent and personable. The accessible room was spacious. There are a couple of inherent problems: bathroom floor slippery on crutches when wet, ramp into the bathroom and opening of door a challenge, no shelves near the toilet. The bathroom was large enough to turn around in a wheelchair, and the shower was a good size. With the exception of our room stewardess, staff seemed to believe that they could not address a person in a wheelchair and talked to my husband and relatives instead of to me. Staff could use some training in this area. Being in a wheelchair does not mean a person cannot discuss their own food order.

The ship is noisy and over crowded. Our room was a balcony over the Boardwalk, which was noisy until 11:30 pm most nights, even with the door closed. There was a bell on the Boardwalk that rang about every 30 minutes all day. These rooms are not for people who might want to relax in their room before 11:30 pm.

The food reminded me of a college cafeteria. The worst food I have ever had on a cruise line was served in the formal dining room. The dining room is over crowded, with tables crammed together, and extremely noisy. A conversation with table mates sitting across the table was impossible. We ate one night, then began to eat in the pool deck cafeteria. We returned on formal night, to be served tough, tasteless lobster. Park Place had a nice salad bar, which became our lunch venue. Even the pizza, hamburgers, and corny dogs were mediocre.

Stops in the Bahamas are dirty, impoverished and all sell the same goods. Beaches are beautiful, countryside was beautiful. So if you avoid the towns, you will do better.

This would be a great place to take teens-lots of pool space and activities. We probably will not sail RC again.
