Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Happy Reunion
This was our 2nd cruise with Liberty OTS. We were happy to be back on the ship to see if we could have as much fun as we did in 2009 on Liberty. It was as wonderful as we remembered. The only negatives were that some shows like "Love and Marriage, "Qwest, and Battle of the Sexes, started after 10:30pm. It's not very late but we get up kinda early, 8:30am and stay going all day so by 9pm, we were too tired to attend several activites and parties. I understand Qwest being late night because it is adult only, but, we had to take afternoon naps to stay awake until 11:30pm. I love that RC offers crowd participation games, and shows. We cruised the Ruby Princess, and there was nothing to do onboard except lay by the pool. We have natural tans so there was no need for more sun.

I like the new additons to Liberty. I didn't see a movie ever playing by the pool though. "Grease" started playing, but it stopped during the pep rally scene and didn't come back on.

I'm not sure when our stateroom attendants slept, because they were always available and on top of their jobs. We woke up they were greeting us in the hall, and when we went to bed, they were saying goodnight. The cruise director on this cruise was not as lively and entertaining as the one from our 1st Liberty cruise in 2009.

Disembarktion was hectic, I'm not sure what happened. After we ate breakfast, we tried to waste time walking around until closer to our tags would be called, but we didn't want to be in the way of the staff trying to clean up. We were #16 tag to leave the ship. When they announced our number, they skipped 15 but numbers 11-14 were already standing in a long line leaving the ship. People were frustrated because others cut line unintentionally. I wish they had waited until the line decreased a little before they called other numbers out.

We are RC fans though, we loved Oasis and we are trying a smaller ship, Monarch, in August.
