Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
Oasis of the Seas
Took our first cruise with Royal Carribean. When we arrived on the ship with much ease in embarking we were met with total sensory overload. We were totally blown away with the ship. Our cabin with balcony was very nice on level 8 where Central Park is. It was in the middle of the ship and very quiet. Our room steward was awesome. My husband had been having trouble with his knee and we asked the steward (Gregory) to be sure to have ice for him every day so he could ice his knee. Every morning and night a bucket of ice appeared. Room was cleaned immaculately every day and night. Mattress was outstanding. We had such a good sleep every night.

We had My Time Dining and really liked this option. We could eat anytime between 5:45 and 7:30 and we were usually able to get the same table with the same waiters, both of whom knew our names and greeted us every night. We never had a bad meal in the dining room, except for the one night that we didn't eat there and ate at Johhny Rockets. Worst hamburger ever and we had to pay a $4.50 cover charge each. Breakfast in the dining room was also first rate.

As far as the breakfast buffet in Windjammers forget it. It was total chaos and something resembling scrambled eggs was on the buffet. When we first went in the door we were asked if we would like fresh squeezed OJ (there was a charge and it was not mentioned). They should inform you of anything that there is an additional charge for. We only ate there once and that was on the first morning.

The Park Cafe for lunch was another great place. Good salads that were made up and tossed for you with your choice of ingredients. We had heard about the famous sliced to order roast beef sandwiches. They were the best!

Ate at the specialty restaurant Chops Grille (the steaks were excellent) as was everything that accompanied it. Service was top notch there as well.

The shows were the best and we never even saw all of them. We could have used another week on the ship to see everything. We want to take another cruise in 2012 but are torn about going on any other cruise line, when it seems like we took the best of all the rest. We would like to take a cruise to Hawaii where we could leave from a West Coast port, but unfortunately RCCL does not leave from the West Coast. We would have to choose from Princess, Celebrity or NCL. It will be hard choice to decide.
