I am a tour leader for a social club in Sun City TEXAS and took 54 of our members on this cruise. Everyone liked it but complained about the casino being 100% smoking. It was only 1/2 smoking in December. The ship is quite nice ... Read more

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

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

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
