I traveled with my husband and Port Canaveral was a good choice of departure. The boarding was fairly fast, considering the size of the ship (Oasis of the Seas), which holds over 6 thousand passengers. Our room was nice and our stateroom ... Read more

This ship itself is one of the best. There is a lot to do, and different "spaces" to keep you entertained during the sea days. Down side of being "big" is that it is incredibly difficult to manage large numbers of ... Read more

The ship was fantastic. My family had a great time and everyone on the ship was very friendly. The shows were outstanding!! Best we have ever seen. But you do need reservations. My husband couldn't get into the comedy club because ... Read more

Just got back from an 8 day New Years cruise on Oasis. My wife and I were in 1720 Sky Loft and our family was in 11196 Balcony. Embarkation was very easy as our Concierge Genie met us in the Suite Area and escorted us to our room at ... Read more

I have been a loyal Royal Caribbean (RC) cruiser. I have had all (almost) great experiences with RC. I have always wanted to go on the Oasis or more resently the Harmony. The Oasis worked better with my schedule and what I had planned. ... Read more

Four night cruise out of Port Canaveral, with stops at Nassau and CocoCay. This was our first cruise on RCL, and we had reasonable expectations considering the age of the ship and the length of the cruise. The rooms are very small ... Read more

The Oasis (love the ship ) had the worst food of any ship we have been on. This was our fifth time on RCL and it just continues to disappoint in the category of food, daily events (focus on spa, selling merchandise , drinking and casino ) ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we like Royal Caribbean and our 11 year old granddaughter was studying ancient civilizations and we wanted our grandchildren to see the Mayan ruins at Tulan, Mexico. The cruise provided the ideal mix of ... Read more

Really enjoyed our cruise. Smoker friendly, considering it is limited. Crew and food great! There is something for everyone on this ship. We cruise frequently on RCCL and love this ship. We were on Harmony last month and except for the ... Read more

This is our second cruise on The Oasis. It is an amazing ship and although it was Christmas week and I was dreading the number of children and sailing at full capacity you rarely felt crowded anywhere. It has so much to do and it is a ... Read more

We previously had only cruised on Disney, but was looking for a change as our kids are getting older. Royal Caribbean is not for us. If you have ever cruised with Disney, I would avoid at all costs as you will be very disappointed. ... Read more

I will admit the ship is pretty and impressive looking. A very nice layout. Loved the different areas. But that's where the good ends. Walked aboard to one of two rooms that stunk from cigarette smoke. (Never completely eliminated by ... Read more

Everything was very smooth with embarkation, we had an interior cabin and although it was quite small, it was enough for just two. Big boo for not having enough outlets in the room and none near the bed. I needed one for my cpap and had ... Read more

The room was very nice and so was our cabin guy. He did a great job. We did not especially care for the food and the deserts was the worst we have experienced. The food on the smaller ships is much better all around. We think they ... Read more

We just went on our first cruise. Honestly, we chose Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas because of the cruise dates, we needed to leave after our college kids finished finals but wanted to be back before Christmas Eve. Even though it was ... Read more

Chose this cruise as a "sisters getaway" and to check out a mega-ship for comparison to our other sailings. This ship is huge, but well-placed signage makes navigating about it very manageable. We sailed full+, 6,100 ... Read more
