Great Ship - Some Senior Issues

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

While the ship is second to none in offering a variety of things to do, we were disappointed with the balcony stateroom. Seniors should know the following:

1. The electric plugs are located under the vanity. You must pull out the vanity chair, get on your knees and look for the plug in. Not convenient!

2. This is the only ship we have been on where the balcony sheer curtain is attached to the heavy balcony curtain. We like to open the heavy curtain and leave the sheer closed. This provides both light and privacy. So, on the Oasis you cannot do this. When we opened the heavy curtain we had no privicy in port and on the seas we let in the hot sun.

3. Closet space was terrible!

4. Bathroom sink was very low and small with very little counter space. If one was 5'2" no problem. If taller, it felt like you had to get on your knees to use the sink.

Having said this,would we sail on this ship again? Yes. The staff was outstanding, dinning room food More excellent, and wait staff well trained. There is much to do on the ship with great public areas like Central Park. Less

Cabin review: Oasis of the Seas Family Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony Deck 7

Deck 11 aft. Closet space horrible - limited room and poorly designed. Electric plugs in terrible location under vanity. Could not reach them. Bathroom sink way to small and very LOW. Very little counter space Balcony sheer curtain attached to heavy curtain so when you open balcony curtain you cannot close sheer curtain. This allows no privacy in port and lets in sun/heat during the day.
