Oasis was beautiful- travel with teens- smoker nightmare
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
If you travel with teens/kids on this ship make sure to get the GPS iphones that you can rent on the ship. This ship is so big that being able to locate your child/teen on the GPS is reassuring. Go immediately to rent one when you get on the ship, however, as they sell out quickly.
Now to the smoking issue. We had a large group of smokers who were in the two rooms adjacent to us. They seemed to invite other smokers in to use the balconies in their rooms to smoke on as well. The two groups were friends and had removed the partition, so frequently there were large numbers of people smoking at once on the balcony. We were never able- even once- to use our balcony because of this. You should know that Royal Caribbean allows any number of people to smoke on the balconies with no limits. In our case there was at least two smokers on the balcony- but usually more, and sometimes a lot more at all hours of the day and night. If this happens to you, there is nothing you can do about it and Royal Caribbean won't control the situation. I'm surprised they are not concerned about liability if an asthmatic kid or adult has medical issues due to the smoking allowed. Less
Cabin review: D5 Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Our balcony cabin was right next to the library which was both very convenient and easy to locate. Tiny closet! No room to walk once the sofa bed was out for the evening. My pet peeve- the container in the shower which is open on the front allowing anything you put in in to fall out! The rooms are attractive and the bathroom is pretty. The shower was a good size- we liked the rounded front. The balcony rooms on the Oasis aren't as big as those on the Freedom class. The beds were comfortable- even the sofa bed.Read All Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony (D5) Reviews >>
