We have sailed Royal Carrib Freedom class twice before Oasis. This ship is much bigger and has alot more for everyone to do. We had Boardwalk balcony b1. we had two connecting rooms. The room was tiny bit bigger then Freedom. The kids ages 19, 15, 10 year twins enjoyed the balcony view. We were able to watch the aqua show from our balcony which was very cool. I think i like the balcony water view better but did like boardwalk bal for somth different.
The shows were execellant and enjoyed by all ages. Our cruise director was very talanted and very entertaining. The 70s show in the promnade was lots of fun. The windjammaer was very crowded and the food was not good. We went once and didnt go back. Johnny Rockets was excellant and free for breakfest. The lunch there was great for burgers, chicken sandwiches and fries and onion rings for a $4.95 fee and was well worth it. The park cafe in Central Park was great also for breakfast and lunch and was free also. The roast beef sandwich was great as everyone writes about. They also have salads with toppings made to order. They were good also. The Main Dining Room food was ok. The presentation of the food looks nice but no taste and lots of weird things to choose from. We went to Chops and that was by far our best meal for a 25 dollor fee. Giavonnis the italian place was ok for 15 dollor pp but was better then dining room. Remember to make a reservation before u go because if you dont you will pay $5 more pp if you do it on ship. Sorrentos pizza taste like Dominos not kidding. The donut place which is free are not good. The cupcake place was not woth the money, My kids couldnt wait to have one and they were dissappointed. The icing is cream cheese not vanilla and they didnt like. There was never any one in there buying them.
There are many pools but they are very small. On sea days they were very crowded. We went around 8am to put towels on the chairs we wanted and maybe a beach bag so we would get good chairs. My little ones enjoyed the kids pool. It was always very crowded and lots of kids running around. The soft ice cream on the pool deck was enjoyed by all of us. The wipe out cafe for lunch was ok fries and nachos were pretty good. Its near the flowrider. The flowrider was alot of fun, just remember to fill out your weivers on line before you go. We didnt do the zipline, it seem like to much fun. There really never was a line.
One more think the boardwalk was nice merry go round kids went on every day. There really was much to do on Boardwalk, if ur used to a real boardwalk in New Jersey shore its nothing like that. Theres a candy store that you buy the candy by the pound and a ice cream store that has a 3 dollor fee as well. The kids enjoyed going there for a walk every night. Overall i give Oasis 5 Stars we enjoyed it very much and maybe will try the Allure next time.
