Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Sanctuary in the Caribbean
A long haul flight on a comfortable Delta flight from Gatwick to Atlanta was the beginning of a unique opportunity for our family to travel away together to spend quality time. Staying with friends in Atlanta first, then flying to Miami to stay at the Hilton to experience some exciting fun time before travelling up the road to Ft Lauderdale all added to the excitement of anticipation.

Entering the port, passports checked, and we were at the ship terminal. WOW! What a ship. We all just gasped as we took in the size! Interrupted by strong porters who took our bags we were directed to the check in doors. Security was a breeze as we had all our metal stuff in our carry-ons and straight into the "hall" Row upon row of agents all eagerly waited to greet us and issued our passes to us.

On to the ship and we could not believe our eyes. We thought we had been directed to a giant shopping complex, not a ship. Taken to our cabins by smart staff, we unpacked and started to explore the ship. Having got lost a number of times and consulting the very informative interactive "maps" strategically place we eventually found our way around. It was sunset before we realised the ship was actually moving. On board we saw the sun setting between the twin rear bits at the back of the ship. Well ship is not the word, floating town more like.

During our week we visited The Bahamas, U S V I, and St. Martin where we raced on America Cup class yachts. On board there was a zip line, kids pools, adult pools, jacuzzis, climbing walls, ice rink, roundabout and food - so much choice.

A different place for each meal was the order of the week. Snacks were everywhere and ice-cream and soft drinks all included! We never say the children during the day. Such fun they had, they didn't want to go to bed. The service in the dining room was exemplary. Everything 5*. Staff throughout the ship always with a smile on their faces.

The shows on stage were phenomenal. Far better than on any theatre stage we have ever experienced. When time came to leave, we discovered we had still not experienced nor seen it all, so we have had to book a return visit next year.

Getting off the ship was a breeze. The ship took our bags from outside our room on the final night and we next saw them at baggage claim. How easy was that? The ship; Oasis of the Sea, is one ship that everyone would enjoy. It is almost a fantasy experience. One cannot believe all the great things that are there, and the cost? Well worth the money. There is so much to see and do, we still feel excited about our experience and tell all our friends in great detail with a card load of photographs to illustrate the story; most think we have started an agency to sell the holiday to them!
