Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Totally Relaxing
We just returned from our Eastern Caribben cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. If you are a first time cruiser, this ship will more than likely be intimidating for you. This ship is huge and can be difficult to navigate if you're not good with directions. Because of the open middle concept you may have to go up or down a few floors to get where you want to go.

As always on Royal Carribean, the service was wonderful, our steward could not do enough for us. The food was fantastic. After reading several reviews before we went, I will say this about the buffet. If you want to eat in the buffet you need to go when it first opens or after 9:00 pm. There are 6,500 people traveling on this ship and it can get crowded.

Our cabin on the Oasis was overlooking Central Park, pretty much in the middle. The cabin was a nice size, we even had a king size bed which was a surpirse. The bathroom is larger but getting at the closet could be difficult for larger people. It is behind the bathroom and next to the small side of the bed. There is pleanty of room in it though. All in all we loved our cabin and had no problem getting to sleep at night it was very quiet.

On the days people are in port, it was rather easy to get lunch in the buffet, until they started coming back onboard before sailing. You can get your breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main dining room with no problem. We experience 150 Central Park for dinner on night and the menu was excellent. However, if you want the wine pairing it is $75.00 per person which to us is too extravgant. I don't know about the rest of you, but I can not drink a glass of wine with every course. They do not try to force you to take the wine with your meal, it is offered as an option. We also ate in Johnny Rockets on day while we were at sea and experience a small wait of about 20 minutes. The shows were great but remember if you want to see them or eat in a specialty restaurant book ahead to make sure you get in like I did. Many people were disappointed because they couldn't get into a show. All in all, follow the basic tips and you will have a great cruise.
