I booked this cruise as I wanted to experience Oasis but wasn't that impressed with her Caribbean itinerary she was coming to Europe and we enjoyed our last transatlantic so we went for it. EMBARKATION : Got there at 12:30 queues where huge so we dropped our luggage and went into Southampton for lunch we went back at 4:30 walked straight on and went to our cabin. CABIN: Loved it loved it there ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Mediocre Cruise

This cruise was far from being a cruise with positive things to remember other than our excellent cabin attendant. The embarkation & disembarkation process was very poor (it took several hours to get on the ship in Southampton and several hours to get through US Customs processing in Fort Lauderdale.) Our dining room staff wasn't well trained and their attitude was curt. Didn't care for the new ...

We are experienced cruisers with this being our 15th overall, 4th on Royal Caribbean. Signed on the day this became available as this was a unique opportunity to experience Oasis OTS for 12 days and an Atlantic crossing. Booked air travel Phoenix-Heathrow through ChoiceAir. Better pricing than airlines and other searches. We arrived in London three days prior to the cruise and enjoyed a wonderful ...

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 ...

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 ...

Just back from our Transatlantic on the Oasis of the Seas (15-27 Oct 2014). This is my first cruise review - Have to say I’m very disappointed. Embarkation – Embarkation at Southampton was an absolute nightmare. As directed by email from RCCI we arrived at 12:00 to embark the ship. This was to find hundreds of people already milling around the doors of the terminal, luckily it was not raining. ...

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. ...
