Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Big but NOT Luxurious. Still plenty to do.
This was our first cruise on a Royal Caribbean Ship. As everyone already knows the ship is huge. We had no problems embarking or disembarking. Both were accomplished in 15-20 minutes.

What surprised us most is that the ship is not luxurious. The rooms are small and plain. Your basic cabin. Bathrooms are very small and the shower is the size of the old telephone booths. We were not impressed.

In the halls near some rooms we smelled toilet sewage. This smell was aft on the 12th floor but may be also on other floors.

The food is OK but not spectacular. Service was excellent and everyone was very helpful.

What was above par was the entertainment. You will not be bored! There is lots to keep you busy.

We had had as good or better cruises on other ships but we would still recommend this one.

Central Park is nice but a waste. Very few guests used this part of the ship. Not much to do or see.

I was surprised that public toilets hand to be flushed manually. Most new ships are automatic.

There are also charges for things that should be free. As an example, if you take watered down orange juice it is free but if you want real orange juice it cost $4.00. Doughnuts are free but Cupcakes cost extra. Whereever you go it seems the cruise line has their hand in your pocket. The TV had 8 channels, 5 of which were advertising products.

The cabin was very small. There was no room to put your empty luggage. We had to stack them on the sofa. The safe is also too small. You cannot put the smallest netbook computers in it. Needless to say we were not happy with the cabin.

Forget about using the internet. It is just too slow. I just gave up after spending $30.00

By the way, the cruise director asked everyone on board if they plan to go again on the Oasis or the Allure and no one raised their hands. We enjoyed the cruise but most likely would not take a second cruise on these ships.
