Oasis of the Seas-Dec 4, 2010
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
That entire experience was a bummer. I felt badly for the couple on the relocated table when we no longer showed up. I felt badly for the waiters, who were great people, for the juggling act. and I was in a quandry as to who to tip so I wound up tipping all of them. Except for the Maitre'd on the first table as I felt he was responsible for the whole mess. It put a damper on the trip and we lost a number of nights of enjoyable dining.
We also dined in Giovanni's table (lunch), 150 Central Park, Park Cafe, Promenade Cafe, Johnny Rockets and each one was greater than the last. Including service, food and pricing. The very best was a 2 1/2 hour dining experience at 150 Central Park. One of the best evenings of dining. Our waiter (Pritish) was exquisite. Personal attention and continual explanations of the food and preparation and where each thing came from and how it was prepare made it fabulous.
The shows were totally different from shows on most cruise ships. Broadway productions, comedy stops with stand up, spectacular water show as well as Ice Show. They were all marvelous.
The ship was awesome. Ate it all up and never felt crowded or too much walking. The Bow of the ship had the dining rooms and theater and the stern had the aquatheater. Therefore the remainder in the middle was easily negotiable without feeling to big or too tiring. All is handicap friendly and there were many scooters aboard.
The room was very comfortable and plenty of storage space for everything. The bathroom was adequate and the shower was great. The TV was interactive and terrific too.
Boarding and disembarking was smooth and efficient and quick. I highly recommend this ship to anyone. Old, young, disabled and all in between. Especially those doubters who think it's too massive. You would never know that there was so many people aboard. The elevators too were smooth and fast. No waiting. The shops left something to be desired and we suspect the next time we cruise aboard they will all be new shops. All in all I say "try it-you'll like it". We sincerely hope the dining room staff gets additional training or they get better people handling things as the cruise is short and the nightmarish experience spoiled an otherwise wonderful cruise.

Cabin review: D86676 Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Took run of the ship accommodations which means for a reduced fair, we picked the type of room(superior ocean view) but they actually assigned the cabin number. Turned out to be fabulous. 6th floor at the elevators and right at the entrance to Boardwalk. I couldn't have picked it better. Room was great. Interactive TV was great. Bathroom was small but ok. Shower was great. Storage was adequate. Balcony was small but fine. Cabin was roomier than most cruise ships I've been on.Read All Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony (D8) Reviews >>
