A cruise not for Seniors

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We sailed on The Oasis if the Seas on May 25th for seven nights. Our first night of dining was in the main dining room and the food was mediocre at best. While there are many venues from which to choose for breakfast or lunch, we found it amazing that you could only get a fresh made omelet in the dining room or Wipe Out Cafe. The scrambled eggs appeared to be powder. Very difficult to provide quality food products when everything has to be prepared due to 6000 passengers!! Also the cruise line states that no shorts, swim trunks, etc are allowed in the dining room for dinner, yet we saw many people dressed just like that, and were not told they could not come in. If you do not enforce your own rules, what is the point.
The specialty restaurants, especially Giovanni's Table was exceptional and well worth the $20.00 per person upcharge.
Did not appreciate having to check out and return beach towels everytime you needed one. Had not experienced that on Celebrity, which is the More line we took our last two cruises on, and a sister company to RCCL.
Did not understand having to have reservations for each and every form of entertainment. The shows, the Comedy Club, etc all had to have reservations prior to attending.
This is not a cruise I would recommend for any senior or any couple looking to escape the day to day grind. There were a great many children, and although there was a supposed adult only area, it to was not enforced.
All in all we were disappointed with the overall experience, and will not be sailing on a ship of that size in the future. Less

Cabin review: Oasis of the Seas Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony Deck 6 12588

We had a Superior outside cabin with ocean view and balcony. Cabin was smaller in square footage than what we have experienced on previous cruises.

Port and Shore Excursions


We walked the shopping area adjacent to the pier. Typical Caribbean jewelry shops.
