Ship Facts: Oasis of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Oasis of the Seas Deck Plans
A THEME PARK ON WATER
Christian conference was great however we could have used bigger conference rooms as some were just too small for our whole group.

OUTSTANDING STAFF AND MANAGEMENT!!! Would like to give recognition to the following employees for their outstanding service on board the Oasis

1)Carmelia Ersando-Senior Guest Service Officer and her Manager for the

outstanding favors they granted us as honeymooners! Bumped us up to room

up-grade ocean view balcony for last 3 nites of our trip was incredible!

2)Garry Pinto-Stateroom Attendant-outstanding service, friendliness, helpfull

and ensured our room was extra clean and well stocked at all times!

3)Michelle-6:00p.m. dining room main server/3rd floor Opus Dining room table150

FOOD: CHOPS GRILLE/ make reservations for this one it is incredible food and

service!!! Delicious Filet Mignon

MAIN DINING ROOM-OPUS: Food was good, menue could use more choices,

quite busy and loud with so many people at each sitting, service very

good. Steaks very tender all dishes were very tasty

SOLARIS BISTO: Very nice buffet choices for on the run healthy lunch

WINDJAMMERS: Incredible buffet style restaurant, never a wait for a

table, very good service, very good food selection, always busy but

never had to wait for anything ever, breakfast and lunch.

ROOM SERVICE: Ordered carafs or coffee and tea in the p.m. always had

dessert delicasies or fresh fruit basket delivered complimentry by

the ships room service automatically the next day without asking, we

would order the drinks in the evening sit on our balcony and enjoy them

and the next day after lunch we would have a surprise treat sitting on

our stateroom table from the staff of the roomservice...now that was so

enjoyable. We did try breakfast, it was nice to eat outside in the a.m.

and watch the waves of the ocean splashing as we ate, I would recommend

you try it at least once if you have an ocean view balcony.

THE CUPCAKE CUPBOARD: We picked up cupcakes every day here, if you like

a sweet treat, this is the place to go...delicious moist rich flavors to

devour daily! They do cost about $2.75 each but they made us feel like

we were truly treating ourselves on this holiday..thanks cupcake

cupboard! YUMMERS

*Those are the places we really enjoyed eating for the week we were onboard.

*Oasis was almost full-capacity week of March 10th, thats alot of people, the

pools and hot-tubs were too busy for our liking unless we were at port, these

days offered a bit of peace and quiet where we did get back in early so we

could take advantage of the quietness in the common area's of the boat.

*All common area's in the evening were crazy loud, like being in a bar with

live bands all over (loud and sleezy) Just too many people standing and

sitting everywhere like in a busy, very busy mall during the days and nites

no matter where we went, this part we did not enjoy.

*We initially reserved a Central Park view window room, nice large window but

we still could only see the same hustle and bustly busy, day four we went to

see Guest services to bump up to a oceanview balcony, they made things so

perfect for us, moved us immediately since it was our honeymoon and this

made all the difference, now we could look outside and see beauty and hear

the crashing of waves...so peacefull, we found our bliss on the ship!!

*Over all, we prefer our 5*resorts in the Mayan Riviera Mexico for rest,

relaxation and fun compared to the cruise ship...so now we know! This boat

is big and beautiful and never a dull moment to be found, but just way too

many people in one place at one time for us! Perhaps we should have tried

a smaller Cruise Ship for our first cruise as we are spoiled by the resorts

we've been visiting in Mexico (try the Sensatori Azul or the El Dorado

Royale by Karisma for a relaxing and pampering holiday! Ola fo now.

*Entertainment: We saw the HAIRSPRAY show...dont miss this one its awsome!

We saw COME FLY AWAY show...was just okay, we snored a little

*CASINO: Spent about $140.00 here and there, never saw anybody win anything at

any time, alot of cigarette smoke (gaggy actually) this stopped us from

actually wanting to spend time here, better air exchage would help.

*Room #9-605 Central Park View (mid ship)

*Room #6-166 Oceanview Balcony (close to alot of great places on board)

awsome view!

Thanks to all the staff onboard the Oasis..they really do run a tight ship!

Awsome service all the time, everywhere and extremely clean everywhere too!
