Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Oasis - Family Holiday
We wanted to combine a trip to Florida with the luxury of a cruise and the Oasis of the Seas was the ultimate family luxury cruise.

It exceeded the expectation of all family members from our grandchildren of 10 & 13, their parents in their early forties, to grandparents in their 60`s. Our grandson never wanted to leave the children's club asking to be left there until it closed at 2am ( we allowed him a few stays till closure).

Our grand-daughter loved the ice-rink & took her own skates and showed her prowess at twirling and jumping on ice. She also loved the zip-wire & flow rider whilst the older members loved the more sedate activities of the pool & mini-golf but we did try the dancing in the night clubs, sometimes the the early hours.

The cabin was well fitted with everything that could be required but the case storage fell a little short and the 2 cases had to be stored under the bed but one end stuck out and we kept falling over it. Our son, daughter in law & 2 children (13 & 10) were also in an inside L cabin number 8443 and they found it extremely cramped. The did not have enough storage for all their clothes and did not unpack all the cases and there was no where to stow them either. Once the bed settee had been put up for the children there was no room to move around. A more roomy family cabin would have been better for them. We paid the full adult fare for the children and the adults via Virgin Cruises and felt this was the only dissatisfaction we had on the whole cruise as we couldn't upgrade either with Virgin or directly with Royal Caribbean Cruises.

Food is never ending and plentiful and of excellent quality and a diet before boarding is a must as the waist-line does increase on leaving.

Entertainment is to suit all tastes from the Diving pool shows to ice shows and theatre extravaganzas. The only down side is when you have to leave and say goodbye but with the promise that you will try to return next year. Our grandchildren have now been spoilt with the size and quality of Oasis of the Seas and demand nothing less than this excellence.
