We have been on many RCI ships but this is the first time for us on Oasis. We had mixed expectations - good and not so good - but we were pleasantly surprised at how our biggest fear was unfounded. With over 5,000 passengers we expected ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise. We have been on Carnival twice and Royal Caribbean twice now. We chose this cruise mainly for the ship experience. Our two grown children, boy age 23 and girl age 26, went with us so we paid (a lot) for two ... Read more

we were with a group of 252 Disney fans. It was difficult to handle a group that large. Having sailed Disney a lot it was hard not to compare. Quality of food on Disney in standard dining rooms was far greater than RC. RC seems to be ... Read more

We found that December is a very good time to cruise. The prices are great, the weather is great. Our favorite part of the ship was Central Park. We loved walking through there going from one end of the ship to the other. We were ... Read more

Chose for a quick get away at a very good rate. Basic inside and outside rooms are too small for the bed. You must climb over to get on it. Frame and mattress were worn and uncomfortable. Room was not maintained. Worst was the cheap ... Read more

The food was mostly cheap and banquet style. The steaks were thin and tough and the fish was freezer burned. If you were ok with pizza and burgers every day you would be fine, but the other dinner fair was a disappointment. Of the ... Read more

Embarkation was smooth, as was debarkation. Why do I board with two bags and leave with five? LOL The suite perks and accommodations were as promised. The Coastal Kitchen was wonderful, especially for breakfast, but not a quick dining ... Read more

Oasis of the Seas isn't our favorite ship. Big ship. Kind of arranged weird. Headliner (Abba) was amazing! Dive show cancelled often. Cats cancelled on Saturday due to injury of cast. 5 ships in St. Maarten at the same time, so ... Read more

We recently returned from our trip on the Oasis of the Seas. There were a lot of similarities with Freedom of the Seas, another large ship which we cruised on several years ago. The cabins were pretty much the same, and there was the Ice ... Read more

First off..the ship is big, be prepared to walk...a lot. I had a "Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Large Balcony" The view was nice, but the room was small, and if you not sharing the bed, and have them pushed apart, it ... Read more

What can one say about this large ship other than the title I have given this review. Is it big, yes! Bigger than I even imagined it would be without question. We have taken many cruises on various size ships from different cruise ... Read more

I wanted to try a large ship, my husband didn't so I took my daughter. Port Canaveral is 30 minutes from home, making the Oasis attractive. We arrived at the Port at 12:30, checked our luggage and joined a long line that moved quickly. ... Read more

Oasis of the Seas is a great ship. The aqua theater show was very good. It was cancelled for several days due to inclimate weather but a couple of shows were offered at the end of the cruise. If you get a chance watch the cast practice. ... Read more

Considering this ship is viewed as a Luxury Cruise Ship, the experience was quite disappointing. The food was substandard and the staff seemed very unhappy most of the time, especially the bar and shop staff. The Spa was beautiful and ... Read more

Getting on the ship was a breeze. From leaving my house to parking the car and stepping onto the ship was less than an hour, and I live 20 minutes away from the port. The staff seems to really care about the passengers experience. I was ... Read more

The Oasis is a great ship with some terrific spaces. Unfortunately, it is crowded after Thanksgiving (until Easter I am told). Other than Chops Steakhouse ($pecialty restaurant) the food was very ordinary. We experienced long waits for ... Read more

The Oasis of the Seas is truly an engineering wonder, magnificent to see and very well run when you consider the number of passengers onboard. We have been on her sister ship Allure of the Seas so knew what to expect as far as crowds, ... Read more

This cruise was priced and booked through Casino Royale. The Casino was fun and all of the dealers were very pleasant, courteous, and fun. I will definitely look to the Casino booking in the future! The food was good, but since we ... Read more

We have always favored Royal Caribbean and really enjoy the quality of food prepared and impeccable service provided. The Oasis is a marvelous ship and one does not know where to go first. There are numerous options for fine dining in ... Read more

My wife and I completed a short Thanksgiving cruise on the Majesty of the Seas. All in all it was a perfectly delightful three days of fun. We thought we must have been on another ship based on some of the negative reviews about Majesty. ... Read more
