We sailed on Oasis because we have previously sailed on Allure, the sister ship. Room service was excellent! The shows were outstanding - especially "Cats"! The downside was especially the Windjammer restaurant on deck 16. ... Read more

Chose the Oasis because of all the choices the ship offers. Two of my favorite places on the ship were Central Park and the Aquatic Theater. The shows were awesome and I liked the fact you could choose which shows and what time you wanted ... Read more

We returned to Royal Caribbean after a long interlude of 12 years. My husband and I had previously had an outstanding honeymoon on the Mariner of the Seas. This time, we took our 9 year old daughter. While we had a good experience, it ... Read more

We had a great time on our fourth cruise on Royal Caribbean. We had a midship oceanview balcony on deck 7, and the room was quite nice. I would say that it seemed to have less storage than rooms that we had on previous RCI ships. This ... Read more

We were very happy with our time on the Allure of the Seas. The service was excellent. Loved the food in the main dining room. Samba Grill, the Brazilian restaurant, wasn't my favorite but the staff was great. My 11 and 13 year old had ... Read more

When we arrived we were in awe! When we got to the room, I laid on the bed and found it most uncomfortable and going down hill toward my head and sunken in the middle. Before the day was over, I had a new mattress! I truly appreciate that! ... Read more

AAA recommended it. We were blown away by the shear size of the boat as our hotel shuttle approached it. The "neighborhoods"- Boardwalk, Central Park, Promenade, Casino, Sports- were amazing. The carousel alone blew us away as ... Read more

We are long time R/C cruisers, and were dying to cruise on this amazing ship. We booked the cruise seven months in advance to find that all junior suites were taken. We settled for an oceanview stateroom with balcony. The cabin was ... Read more

This was my first cruise with husband and parents. I have never really fancied a cruise before but am definitely a convert now. The ship was luxurious with glass lifts and staircases, the dining room was beautiful and dinner felt special ... Read more

To say this ship was a huge disappointment is an understatement. First I will start with the pros as there were a few. Chelsea O' Toole at the spa was amazing. Super sweet and went out of her way to help us relax. Next was our awesome ... Read more

Food in the Windjammer and in the dining room was subpar. We've been on 25+ Royal Caribbean cruises and this has been the worst so far. Specialty restaurants are the way to go. Above and beyond service and food. alcoholic Drinks on the ... Read more

Family Cruise 2017 Selected as other family members wanted to do Royal and it was for 3 family member's birthdays. To put it mildly my wife and I were very disappointed by Royal in so many ways. We have been on Disney, NCL, ... Read more

The Harmony is a new ship. The staterooms are tasteful decorated, with two separate closets and plenty of storage space. I was disappointed with embarkation. Initially There was no one curbside to take our luggage. We arrived at our ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary as we have never been to the ABC islands before. We were also interested in taking a cruise that was loner than a week and found the 9 night to be wonderful. We had folks from 21-80 and everyone ... Read more

I choose this ship because at the time the sale was great and I needed to find something to do for my son's 15th Birthday. There were mixed reviews about the size of the ship since it's the smallest from RC so we knew what we were ... Read more
