Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review by cruzette: Unexpected Pleasure
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Wherever I went there were 5,999 other people with us on the first day...but by the next morning, everyone had dispersed and things were much calmer. The Oasis of the Sea is HUGE...a floating city. There was so much to do that seven days really wasn't enough.
The shows were fabulous but we didn't get to see a couple of them because of timing. Hairspray was delightful and the comedians were worth staying up late for.
Food on the Oasis was better than some of the other ships we have been on. The many venues also brought with them a variety of menus. I especially liked the new Solarium Bistro...the gazpacho bar was very tasty...the fresh veggies to add to the soup was quite refreshing. We also liked Giovanni's Table for lunch (didn't make it for dinner).
We weren't very happy with our cabin. While the bed was large, it was right up against the closet, making entry somewhat difficult.
The Cruise Director Staff (Richard Spacey and crew) were More OUTSTANDING!!! I have never sailed with a Cruise Director who was this active...and his staff absolutely loves him and so did we!
Labadee was beautiful (my first time there) but Cozumel and Costa Maya well, they were Cozumel and Costa Maya. We got off the ship for an hour or two then came back on to enjoy the pool and just take it easy.
We met some wonderful people and had a good time whenever we were with them. Turns out we will all be sailing the Enchantment in March 2011!
We look forward to continued sailings w/RCI...and we look forward to meeting more great people! Less

Cabin review: D57224 Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
I liked the layout of the closet...usually there are shelves on the inside and but hard to get to. The shelves in our cabin were facing outward making them much for accessible. The over-sized bed was great but it took up most of the room...it was only a few inches away from the closet making it difficult to get to. The balcony was small but still workable for two people. Even though we were on the 7th deck, we were across from the kitchen. As you walked down the hall, you could smell food...and occasionally, we noticed soap suds seeping out from under the steel door and onto the carpeted hallway...seems like a major design flaw.Read All Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony (D5) Reviews >>
