Sailed on the Oasis for its transatlantic sailing. Looked forward to this cruise for over a year. It was a terrible disappointment. We had sailed on the Oasis and Allure several times and thoroughly enjoyed each cruise. We spent more time waiting in lines starting with our landing in Heathrow (3 hour wait for the bus to take us to the ship) arriving in Southampton to start a 2 1/2 hour wait to ...

Embark - It was clear RCL was not prepared for an embarkation of this magnitude in Southampton. As a frequent floater, I received and email 4 days prior to embarkation letting me know I could board anytime after 12:00pm. Several thousand of us stood outside the terminal from 11:45am until 2:15pm before were even let in. Once we were let in, it was still somewhat of a "cluster." I am an Emerald ...

This review is of the post-drydock Oasis of the Seas westbound TA (October 15-27,2015). Since we were on the Eastbound pre-drydock TA in September, we can accurately compare the two ships and voyages pre and post dry dock. The overriding factor in the Westbound TA of the Oasis of the Seas has been congestion, overcrowding, and SRO. We have never been on a cruise where the masses tend to dominate. ...

This review covers the 12 nighter Southampton to Fort Lauderdale transatlantic cruise, along with the following back-to-back 5 nighter to Nassau and Cozumel. We booked a year ago as we wanted to experience the novelty of this one-off cruise departing from home waters on 'the biggest cruise ship in the world'. Oasis usually operates 7 night cruises from Fort Lauderdale to the sunny Caribbean week ...

Total disappointment

The whole cruise was a disaster. Boarding 2 hours being crushed in Southampton. Disembarkation 3 hours in a queue at Fort Lauderdale. Ship is beautiful, but badly designed for poor weather. Nothing to do for 10 out of 12 days. Couldn't get into many shows, our designated dining table full of other people, food not hot, wine extortionate, spa a joke - 30 places for 6000 guests so couldn't buy the ...

We booked the cruise 18 months ago as the termination of an extended holiday in England and were looking forward to a great cruise experience as an opportunity to unwind. Frankly, we were neither delighted or satisfied, in fact we were extremely disappointed with this cruise. Note: We have made 17 cruises (5 RCCL). Some positive notes to begin with: Our Cabin Steward Imade Semarajaya was ...

Boarded in Southampton on a cold and at times rainy afternoon. We were emailed that our category (Diamond) could embark starting at noon. We arrived at the port early, having flown all night from Florida and looking forward to getting checked in. This was NOT to be. Hoards of passengers waiting outside the terminal for hours, the port people ( no one from RCL ever appeared) telling us at various ...

Firstly we boarded at Southampton we were sent e-mails confirming our boarding time and asked to acknowledge that we had received this. When we arrived at the port there was a massive crowd and the doors had not been opened to let people in. We waited 2:15 hours with people pushing and shoving and then the rain started. No officials from RCI or the port gave any information at all no definitive ...

Not a good cruise

This was beyond a doubt the worst cruise we have ever taken. Mob mentality existed from before we got on in Southampton until we went through immigration in Fort Lauderdale. RCCL had absoultely no control over those standing in line and we stood in many lines. I can't even call them lines since it usually was a very large group of people pushing and shoving to get in a door to something, the ...
