There weren't alot of reviews about the CLS on Oasis of the Seas, so hopefully this will help those of you that are debating between the CLS and a regular room. This was our 6th cruise in 3 years and our first on RCI. We normally cruise Carnival, but decided to try a change and went for RCI and Oasis of the Seas. We have two teenage kids that have always cruised with us. The ship is amazing, everything you read is correct. We went with the Crown loft Suite to try something new as we have always previously done balcony rooms. The suite is very spacious and is setup well. If you want to book the CLS for the extra room, do it. Don't expect to get VIP treatment aboard the ship because you are in the CLS. You are put through a VIP process in the boarding process, but to be honest RCI has this down so well it wasn't any quicker in the VIP line than any other line. We were very dissapointed in the Concierge lounge, in fact I got in trouble for "serving" my own drinks because of how bad the service was. There were no other special "perks" for being in the CLS; which was a big dissapointment for the money we spent. I'm glad we went on Oasis, but wouldn't spend the extra money to be in the CLS again. It's an amazing ship with a ton of things to do...especially with two teenage kids. I will say all the shows are geared toward the older crowd. We didn't attend any of the shows as they didn't look appealing. We did however try to go to the comedy shows, but they were all adult only; so we decided to do other things with our kids. Read Less
