Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Oasis New Year's experience
We've sailed on Royal Caribbean and our last trip prior to this was on the Liberty of the Seas. We had a Jr. Suite and was very pleased. We decided when we booked the Oasis to try a Grand Suite in celebration of our fellow traveler (sister) successful cancer treatment. This was gonna be a BIG party!

I have always looked forward to those award levels like Diamond and Diamond+. Let me tell you - there is NOTHING to compare with the treatment and service when you go with a suite! As they told us, we pay the most and they honor that level to the hilt.

From the embarkment, we were met at the separate SUITE entrance by an RCC agent that personally guided us through security and seated us at our suite waiting area. We boarded first and initially toured the ENORMOUS Oasis.

You can read about the Oasis on other posts, so my experience will be mainly the suite goodies we found while on board.

Our cabin was indeed grand. First time we had more drawers than stuff to put in them. Balcony very nice with lounge chairs.

The concierge room overlooks the back of the ship and we made a lot of use out of it. We had a leisurely breakfast every morning. Not any crowd and very nice!




Prior to dinner, we would go to the concierge room and play cards and have free snacks and drinks. There was always a concierge person at the desk for anything you wanted to know or anything you wanted to do. When we had an issue with the photo studio, she was the one who took our issue and got it fixed. Nice!

There is also a private sunning area and bar (17th floor) that is only for suite members. The lounge chairs are upgraded with a full length pad to rest on. How decadent!

We had a private Captain's meeting with more food and drinks. We also had reserved seating for all shows. Nice not to have to muscle in for seats. We did find that if we arrived early enough, there were better seats than the reserved ones. The ice skating seats however were ringside! First row! again - Nice!

It is more expensive to book a suite, but I certainly will try to save enough and look for any last minute bargains to return to this level!
