Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Oasis in November
My wife and I sailed on Oasis Of The Seas to St Thomas, St Maarten and Nassau in the first week of November. The first shock we had was the weather in Fort Lauderdale - it was very cold and did not get us in the mood for our cruise at all! Fortunately once we headed south the weather warmed considerably.

Embarkation was a breeze - it would have only taken us 15 minutes from the time a porter collected our bags at the kerb until we were strolling down the Royal Promenade.

As expected we were not able to get into our cabin straight away so we headed for the Windjammer to grab some lunch. Unfortunately about 2,000 fellow passengers had the same idea and consequently we were unable to find a table, so we ended up in Johnny Rockets (which has a $4.95 surcharge).

As so many reviewers of Oasis have noted, the first thing that strikes you about the ship is its enormity. It dwarfs every other ship around, as you would expect with a 6,000 passenger capacity. However, apart from meal times, the ship doesn't feel crowded and everyone seems to be able to navigate their way around.

The shows were excellent, the main dining room meals were delicious and the staff were, as usual, doing everything they could to make our cruise as enjoyable as possible. We had a slight itinerary change due to the lingering Hurricane Thomas but it had no effect on us. As usual there were some passengers that kicked up a stink as it affected their attendance to shows that they had pre-booked (big deal!), but most people were happy that we were avoiding some rough seas.

Overall the cruise was most enjoyable, and having done that particular cruise to experience Oasis we were not disappointed. What a pity it is stuck doing the western Caribbean and Mexico, as it visits ports that don't really have a lot going for them unless you're shopping for diamonds and very expensive watches!
