Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
All that and then some!
My husband and I along with another couple, sailed with Oasis to celebrate our anniversaries in May. My husband and I got a great deal because we booked this cruise a year in advance while sailing Liberty OTS. So not only were we able to book a balcony room, but we were given an onboard cedit for early booking.

The Ship: breathtaking, we quickly learned to navigate around the ship based on the promenade,central park, and the boardwalk. We enjoyed taking the stairs EVERY night. There was always something to do every minute. We skipped the formal dinner nights after realizing from previous cruises, that you miss great shows and activites eating for 2 hours. We got dressed for our pictures, hit every last photo stand, returned to our cabin, changed clothes and ate at other areas.

We loved the Wipeout, Park Cafe, Cupcake cuboard,Solarium bistro and the multiple areas to get frozen yogurt. The Wipeout had a frozen yogurt area that was away from the dirty hands of children playing by the pool.(thumbs up!)Park cafe had wonderful salads, the cupcakes were delicious,the doughnuts left a lot to be desired. They were dry. The corn dogs and popcorn hit the spot! A Carnival agent told our friends you have to pay for food on RC, Oasis made them into an even bigger liar. If you can't find a free place to eat of 24 dining options then the problem is you, not the cruise line. They even had fruit in the gym and a low calorie menu at the Solarium Bistro.

Unfortunately, there were a few downsides. I didn't like the layout of Windjammer, it was too jumbled. We don't smoke and the Casino area was covered in it. We had to walk through it to get to other areas of the ship, and the smoke was terrible. The on air club, should have been built larger. We reserved seats for the comedy show but it was too cramped and small. I had to watch the show in sitting in my husband's lap. Some people did not control their kids. They were everywhere. We tried to find quiet cozy spots to cuddle, but everytime we looked up, someone's kid was watching us. Some people even brought their kids to the Solarium (adult only) area, and despite the warning from the cruise director, some people had their children at (adult only) game shows. People need to respect other adults' privacy. You may love your kids, but they are yours, we shouldn't have to see or deal with them.

We met lots of wonderful people and big props to Oasis for candid picture shots. They grouped all our pictures without our seapass cards to identify us. Kudos for the personalized photo albums. I hated looking at thousands of photos of other people trying to find our own. It was wonderful to have all our pictures already in a folder. The photo back drops could've been more scenic. They were really boring. It would be nice to have a self service laundry area, we hate taking dirty clothes home.We loved the chocolates on the pillows and soft comfy bathrobes! Blankets by the pool on windy nights would be a nice add as well. We are Gold members right now, but we are well on our way to accumalating more points. I'm hoping for more perks for Gold members though.
