big beautiful ship but maybe too big

Sail Date: October 2010
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

the oasis is a beautiful ship. we(part of a family get together of 21)all had lots to do. Yes 10 mins. and we were on the ship. windjammer had it problems should be bigger to handle all but we really didn't have a problem. we found the food stations to be a little confusing. But there was so many other places to eat we never really had a problem.

our room over looked boardwalk we could see the aqua theater from our room which was fun. We usually have a balcony over looking the water,but we wanted to be part of the action. our rooms were good size suitcases fit under the bed. wish we had alittle more drawer space only 2 drawers but closet and shelves adequate. took a day or so to get our barrings but the key offs worked great we didn't need gps. But a little too big for me. If you got separated it might take 15 to 20 mins to get to them. really never any crowds again there is so much to do.

Really did not like the solarium pool at all!!! to small and not a place to More really swim. staff was wonderful but they have so much to do it is hard to chat and really get to know them.

getting on and off the ship was never a problem lines went fast.Could have skipped Nassau not there long enough to do much. check out 150 Park AVE RESTURANT it was great,head chef is from the U.S.We found the food to be a 4 to 5.

all in all a fun ship but I like rccl Freedom Class better Glad I did it she is one of a kind. PS remember book shows on line before you go Hairspray,Frozen in Time Come Fly with Me FANSTASTIC!!!!! Less

Cabin review: Oasis of the Seas Boardwalk view Stateroom with Balcony Deck 8 12321

Boardwalk can be a little noisy but our cabin was near the aqua theater we could see the zip liners, rock climbers, and the performances at the aqua theater WE LOVED IT.Shower was interesting but at least you don't have to fight with a shower curtain.

Port and Shore Excursions


I have been to these ports many times just not enough time in Nassau locals do not know how to do lines in the terminal it took us 45 mins to get back to the ship (in line the whole time. Six people missed the ship. St Thomas we went to coki beach great snorkeling and feed the fish dog biscuits. St Maarten we paid $28.00 went to The Sonesta Beach Resort( beach 2 pools, chairs, umbrellas, lunch and 2 drinks)not a tour with the ship you have to do it on your own it's about a 15min taxi ride.
