Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Cruising again with Royal Caribbean

My husband & I are retired and live in Florida & decided to take a last minute cruise to take advantage of fairly good rates on the Oasis of the Seas.The ship is huge.It carries 6,000 passengers at capacity. Having said that,we were lucky to be gold mem-bers so our boarding line was shorter and it was a breeze to get on the ship.(which was nullified when the cruise was over trying to disembark with thousands of people).We lucked out and got cabin 8700 which is on the same deck as Central Park.Central Park has all the specialty restaurants and the Park Cafe.Avoid the crowds and eat at the cafe.It's a good alternative to the dining room and the Windjammer and has no up charge.It has great items for breakfast & lunch. We ate all our dinners in the dining room.We felt the food quality has gone down since we've cruised before,and now they have up charges for premium selections!! We pre-purchased the premium beverage package. It included premium liquors and wine, fountain sodas and bottled water.Most cocktails were $8.25 plus tip.Decide if it's worth the $55pp per day.For entertainment we went to Dazzles or Boleros to dance.Oasis offered a few "parties" onboard but also had up charges to attend or wanted you to buy glo-items to bring along. We felt nickeled & dimed.Oasis is a great ship for families. They compete with Disney offering Dreamworks character activities. Book entertainment before cruising.If you are unable to they still have tickets available as soon as you board.In general Oasis for us was not the usual Royal treatment. We preferred Celebrity's Equinox.
