We chose this cruise because it was a chartered progressive rock, "Cruise to the Edge" (CTTE) which we have attended on other cruise lines in the past. The CTTE portion was great. The ship services were disappointing compared ... 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 chose the Oasis of the Seas by Royal Caribbean because a group with which we are affiliated decided to have a group event on this ship at this time. The organizers of the event have previously had wonderful experiences on the ship. ... Read more

Primarily we chose this cruise due to the special AAA presentation of the rock and roll shows provided as a package on the Oasis of the Seas. The shows from this presentation, not the headliner shows, were special and were excellent. The ... Read more

Central Park on the Allure (and Oasis) is a nice place to relax and 'chill' while listening to the bird calls and taking in the beautiful 'grounds' of live plants and trees. The Rising Tides Bar didn't always keep its posted schedule. I ... Read more

We went on this cruise as part of a group, the Iowa Academy of Family Physicians. A huge disappointment was when we got there, they had given away our meeting room, where we were to hold continuing education, to another group. We ended ... Read more

Overall I was disappointed with this cruise. The main reason: just too big for my taste. The good: Captain Rob - a great example of what a captain should be. Due to weather problems we had to change our itinerary; Capt. Rob went out ... Read more

We chose this cruise as the Oasis was supposed to be one of the largest RC ships, and we were curious. The ship was way to large for us. Our stateroom was in the front of the ship; most of the large eateries were in the back of the ship ... Read more

We booked this cruise while on another cruise back in 2015, so we had plenty of time to read reviews, and to plan accordingly. We are fairly frequent cruisers (Diamond Plus with Crown & Anchor Society) so we had a pretty good idea ... Read more
