My first cruise with Royal Caribbean, I was really excited. Once booked we couldn't upgrade our room, even if we were paying. I tried several times. I was also told to check when we were checking in for late cancellations, they all said ... Read more

Sailed on Allure of the Seas. Huge ship. From an engineering standpoint extremely impressive, some shows were good, and that's about the best thing I can about the cruise. RCI made this huge ship with tons of room. And for the most ... Read more

We cruised as 4 couples (aged 51-62), and chose the Oasis because we wanted to "experience" it. We had all cruised before, but this ship is twice the size of anything else we had been on. We were all very pleased with the ... Read more

I chose RCL because I was interested in the size of the ship. It took us 3 hours to get to the port and upon arrival was met with the most disorganized and confusing drop off, including rude workers and a nasty BSO officer. Who stepped in ... Read more

I'm a Crown & Anchor Gold member, which at this point it counts for nothing. With the new system, Gold members are NOT recognized at all. All you get is a letter advising you of discounts. The Oasis is a beautiful ship with lots of ... Read more

We chose the ship as a destination rather than the Islands. The ship is HUGE...TOO HUGE. We had a cabin forward which I do NOT recommend. It is a long hike to activities which are mostly aft. All staff were pleasant and helpful. The ship ... Read more
