Nice ocean view balcony room. Pretty similar to what I've had on other lines. Loved that there were glass shower doors and not a shower curtain. Shower curtains are annoying because they leak water outside the shower no matter how careful you are. Our room steward, Simone, was very attentive and always had a smile on her face. On the second morning, my sister cut her hand on a piece of the metal door frame while putting a room service tray outside our door, and Simone supplied her with bandaids for the entire week. She always asked how her hand was doing and if she needed anything. I would definitely choose this type of room again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean and comfortable. WE had three women and I slept on the pull out sofa - it was pretty good. Plenty of hangers although we did pack a few extra. One thing to consider if you travel with 3 or 4 ... buy collapsible cloth denim cubes at Target - since drawers are limited - you can use these for overflow. I stored mine under the desk and desk chair was moved to outside balcony. Although there were 6 nice shelves in closet for clothes as well and plenty of under bed storage for luggage. Nice size outside deck.
We did bring a two outlet plug as there are no plugs in bathroom and only three on desk by makeup mirror. With three cell phones, and camera - it came in handy. There is a blow dryer in room. Read entire member review >>
Spacious, good amount of storage space, plenty of hangers in the closet. Combined queen bed quite comfortable. Head/shower very good, lots of space and room for toiletries. AC worked great, easy to get the temperature comfortable. Great view (not blocked by lifeboats). Cleanliness poor, head dirty on embarkation, dropped something behind the cushions of the settee, very dirty, found lots of loose paper/junk under the seat. Phone did not work very well, cut out frequently. Read entire member review >>
Room was great... The ONLY issue I had was when you were wore out and wanted to relax and rest the small sofa left a lot to be desired.....something reclining would have been nice
Otherwise it was roomy, clean, had a large bed Read entire member review >>
Convenient location to Promenade, Central Park, Boardwalk, Spa, Gym, Juice Bar and Solarium.
Opposite end of the ship is the sports area, Kids/Teen clubs, Windjammer buffet. Read entire member review >>
Nicely laid out, with plenty of closet space. The verandah was small, but adequate. We had adjoining rooms, so we could pass from one cabin to the other from an inside door, or on the verandah. Read entire member review >>
The room was well maintained and the towel animals each night were a great touch. The furniture and linens were in great shape and crisp. Anything we needed our steward was there to help with. My father got a tad bit cold so we ordered an additional blanket for him which arrived faster than we though. Be sure to get a room close to the elevators. Our room was close to the aft where there were many children running up and down the hallways. Read entire member review >>
We had a oceanview balcony, 7th floor Aft. Having been only in Carnival's delightfully orange/pink balcony rooms, the décor of the Oasis rooms seemed quite nice. We had the configuration with the bed by the closet, which I understand is less desirable, but I really liked it. It was nice to have some open floor space near the balcony where the kiddo could play.
I loved that you could move the small bedside tables and coffee table around the room. (One of ours stayed under the desk chair to save room. We also stashed our bag o' toys from the nursery under there.) I also loved that the couch was huge, as was the bed. My 6-4 hubby really appreciated these things. The other big win for RCI vs. Carnival is the sliding glass door. I love that you can keep it a little bit open if you want. I also love that it doesn't slam shut like the Carnival doors.
We thought there was a little more storage/closet space on Carnival. However, the little storage areas around the desk were really nice for small items.
The bathroom was comparable to Carnival in size, but the décor was nicer. I also liked the tube showers better, partly because of the bar for shaving your legs. It was super easy to give the toddler a shower without drenching myself. I wish there was a laundry line like on Carnival, but it's a minor want.
The room showed a little wear (a stain on the carpet, wear on the couch and desk, etc.), but nothing major. We actually thought the common areas of the ship were in very nice shape for a ship set to go into dry dock.
The 7th floor was a great location for us, since we loved the Boardwalk so much. It was also only a floor away from Central Park. We did not feel much movement, despite being in the aft portion of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Great room and location. Would stay in it again. Quiet and always kept clean. Midship so easy to walk to elevators or stairs and level 12 was great for the pool and windjammer cafe. Read entire member review >>
Clean, plenty of room for a solo traveler. Ample closet space. I heard no sound from the cabins on either side of me aside from the door closing from time to time. Very pleased with the balcony. The bed was not as comfy as I would have liked, but then I sleep on a Serta iComfort memory foam mattress at home. Lighting and switch access was great. Bathroom was small but sufficient and had plenty of space for all my stuff. Read entire member review >>
The room was great! Lots of storage in the room AND in the bathroom. No plugs in the bathroom, but there are three in the main room where the lighted mirror and chair are.This room is aft and port side (I think it was). It was very near the elevator and was very convenient. The room was very quiet as we never heard anything except children in the hallway once. The curtains block the light well. One morning we were tired and wanted to sleep in. Keeping the room dark was great for that. I love a balcony. Sleeping with the door open and listening to the water is so therapeutic. I thought the bed felt firm at first, but my hips didn't complain once during the entire trip and I slept like a baby. I was very pleased with the room overall - and with our porter.

The cabin was attractive and clean. However, the air conditioning was not effective. The room was always warm even though we kept the balcony door closed with handle down, curtains closed, master switch always on, and ac set to maximum coolness. We had engineering out several times but they were unable to fix it. Same with neighboring cabins. They gave me a bucket of ice every day and an electric fan, but we were miserable, had difficulty sleeping, got headaches & heat rash. To compensate, they gave us a voucher for 15% off of a future cruise if we use it within 1 year, which we can't, as we are already booked for 2015 vacations. So I would say to be careful about choosing your cabin if you are heat sensitive. Read entire member review >>
We had a cabin on Deck 8 – if I must say, THE PERFECT DECK to be on! Location, location, location! Central Park is just outside my door!!! Oceanview Balcony, cat. D4 with a connecting door. Cabin 8282, port side. Bed by the balcony which gave more of a living room feel to the cabin, but overall, space is perfect for 2 people. Never heard anything from the connecting cabin. Closet had plenty of hangers and space. Storage throughout the cabin was wonderful and I often forgot I put stuff away! Bring a travel alarm clock, better then relying on the wake up calls. Bed needs to be replaced in this room, badly. Read entire member review >>
Spacious cabin with bed near the balcony not the wardrobe.Our cabin steward was Beverley who looked after us well and kept our room immaculate.Great position on the ship as midship and near the lifts. Read entire member review >>
Our room was in a great spot on the ship; deck 10 and midship so we were in a handy location to the various attractions on the ship and barely noticed any rocking on the ocean. We chose deck 10 as it had staterooms above and below so no noise from the pool or entertainment areas. The rooms are well thought out and had everything you needed. We were really glad we chose a room with a deck to enjoy the fabulous views, especially when we got into each port. Our room attendant, Coronica, was lovely and always upbeat! She'd give us tips for our excursions etc which were really appreciated and it was nice to have a familiar face on a ship in excess of 6,000 people. One day we got back to our room to find she had organised some delicious petit fours for us! Read entire member review >>
This was a great ship and a great cabin. I found it interesting that Royal Caribbean does not have any ice buckets in there cabins. Also, there were no toiletries in the bathroom. We had somebody at our dinner table mention that they had asked for a blanket and were told by their cabin steward that there were none available. These are common items found on most ships and of course in all hotel rooms. Read entire member review >>
We had the dreaded room with the bed by the closet! Really, it was no problem accessing the closet! I actually liked having the couch near the balcony! The bathroom is small, but the shower was just right! If you are over 300 pounds, then the shower might be an issue! The beds were so comfortable! Lots of storage areas for things, and many nooks and crannies to put everything! We had one really large suitcase that I could not get under the bed. Our stateroom attendant, Ricardo, fixed that-- he found a way to get it under there while we were at dinner one night! Overall, the room was plenty big enough for 3 of us. Anymore, I'm not sure we would have fit all of our luggage! Read entire member review >>
Closet hard to get to because bed was within inches; could not get large luggage under bed and could not get into closet because of the sliding doors and too little space to angle it in. Shower very small. Does have 5 outlets on dresser, 3 on top and 2 underneath. Read entire member review >>
Generally, found the room too small for two people. Not really as described in brochure.
Not enough drawer space. Do as other lines have done, put drawers under bed.
Furniture cheap particle board, coming unglued. Bed,King size, was too big for room, made moving around difficult.
Closet layout difficult to use. Not enough shelving and really suitable only for one person.
Balcony was fine, as was its furniture. Great view, quiet location. Read entire member review >>
we were on the 14th deck. could here staff cleaning pool deck above us in the middle of the night, had a large balcony which we probably didn't need. cigarette smoke blew into our cabin a few times yuk ! comfy bed, slept great... Read entire member review >>
Very limited storage space for two people. Loved the balcony. The air conditioner was cold, not warm like most have stated. The water is always warm unless you get one class in the a.m. Read entire member review >>
8150 - loved it - on the 8th floor towards the front - not too far from the elevators - very quite, but really close to the Park Cafe in Central Park - loved to only go a short distance to get a drink, fresh fruit or a quick snack Read entire member review >>
The balcony doors unlocked and opened to provide our 3 rooms with plenty of outdoor space and room access. Sleeping arrangement was very comfortable, but would have liked the ceiling curtain separating the kids' pull-out bed from the adults' bed found on other ships. Read entire member review >>
Great use of space. Perfect area - near the elevator, stairs, entertainment. A long way from the dining area and found it easier to walk the room hallway versus the decks. Balcony was a perfect size - 2 chairs and a table. Very quiet. Read entire member review >>
Oasis of the Seas - Category D4, Cabin 6164
Bed near closet / sofa near balcony
Recommend deck 6
Adjoining room was loud - sounded like our door was opening everytime the neighbors went in and out, and we could hear them talking near the adjoining door.
Location near forward elevators was loud - not because of the elevators - but the hallway entry right next to our cabin door was busy and loud, with people talking as they moved in/out of the hallway. Read entire member review >>
Great location for access to the pool and sports deck, quiet location, great to use with connecting room 14188, Liked room layout for 14186 better than 14186 - gave better access to the closet. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of closet space, quiet location and not too much walking from end to end. Need better reading light above couch. I do not like to sit on the bed to read during the day. Read entire member review >>
This cabin has a very nice balcony
The closets could be designed better as the safe takes up room
The interactive TV is slow to load and quirky to use.
Found it difficult to get cabin temperature comfortable - it took five days to get it right...
Great location in the center of the ship Read entire member review >>
Between the end of the bed and the wall, only one person could walk past at a time. On other RCCL ships, we had volume controls for the announcements. Couldn't find one this time. My wife loved the step in the shower for shaving her legs. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 10263 - Nice cabin, towards the back of the ship, ocean view balcony on the 10th floor, right next to stairs and elevators. No noise from other rooms but you can hear people as they talk in the hallways. Luckily our floor was a quiet one. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was smaller than we expected....definitely more narrow. Normally the bed is by the balcony, and the couch is by the bathroom, but this was reversed, and it caused the middle of the room to be quite crowded. The closet is usually across from the bathroom, but it was on the side of the bathroom....smaller than it should have been with the upper rack too close to the ceiling (made it difficult for hanging) and the lower rack too close to the upper rack (clothes on the upper rack were crashing into the lower rack). One of the drawers literally fell apart when I opened it (not good for a new ship!!). Balcony was OK, and location was quiet......although they seemed to be constantly maintaining the side of the ship directly below us. Read entire member review >>
We had a cabin with a balcony. Nice balcony, beds were nice. Cabin had a hair dryer and stocked refrigerator. Good, quiet location - not too far from elevators, but far away enough that we did not hear noise from people waiting for elevators. Read entire member review >>
