We chose this ship because it was the largest we have been on and the ports that it went to we have never been to. The employees were wonderful. The casino was good but would like more of a varity of slot machines. I would also play more of the card tables if they had lower limits. So many pools that if i had brought kids they would have loved it. I talked to a few of the teenagers on bourd to see how they liked it to know if my teenage grandkids would want to go on this ship and all of them said they loved it. Also all the other activities like the zip line, wave runner, rock climbing and putt putt golf was great. The Chop Grill was over the top great. The windjammer had everything imanginable to eat and the Slomaron was a great place to go to also. The entertainment as always with Royal Caribben was very entertaining. A great ship and I highly recommend it. Read Less

The ship and itinerary matched the experience I was looking for. Stayed in Crown Loft Suite. I think this is the best suite/room I have stayed in on any ship. I like the ports of call with Nassau being the least favorite. Would have rather spent a day in Labadee or Cocoa Cay instead of Nassau. The amount of time in Nassau is too short to enjoy the expensive water park at Atlantis and too long if you are just in the market area. The rest of the island is pretty sketchy. Saint Thomas and Saint Marten are recovering from the hurricanes steadily and are great ports of call. Tivi resort in Saint Marten was a great place to spend the day. Clean bathrooms, restaurants, shops and bars. Good selection of water sports as well. The Oasis is now my favorite class of ship. The only suggestion is to add water slides (on Oasis itself) for the kids like other ships have. Dining at Coastal kitchen and access to the concierge lounge made the cost for a loft suite hold more value. Complimentary drinks throughout the day and evening was also a bonus. Main dining room was good and having other complimentary dining such as park cafe was a nice change. Wi-Fi was also included and worked better on board this ship than it had on others. Always enjoy the on board entertainment, quality performances by very talented individuals. Overall it was a great vacation and we were blessed with great weather and flat seas. I highly recommend the Sky class suite experience if you can get a decent deal. Though it isn't cheap it comes with many perks and advantages. The drawback is once you have experienced this level (or higher like Star class), you wont want to go back. Its the difference of flying first class VS coach, except you live it 24-7 for a week.

We have had great experience with RC in the past and were interested in visiting these ports. I will say that we would probably not choose Oasis again. I was appalled at how much cigarette smoke rolled out of the casinos on both floors- one of which was our dining room so every night before dinner we were forced to inhale the smoke that was right across from the dining room entrance. On our floor - the 10th - after about the 3rd day, getting off the elevators was very unpleasant due to a very strong smell of diesel fuel. Gave me a headache. Other guests said the same thing. The other disappointment regarding this experience was the food. Im not sure if this is an Oasis thing but we have sailed on Freedom of the Seas in the past and the food was excellent. It was just ok on Oasis. I would caution anyone that uses the spa during your vacation. My husband treated me to a massage and hair blow out on one of the formal nights. I could not believe what a basic massage it was for the price. At one point I could tell the therapist was checking her phone or some device and almost forgot she was massaging me. The one hand just kind of stopped and her other hand was occupied...I could hear her doing something. Then the high pressure sales locking you in the room to purchase this absolutely necessary cream for your sore muscles. Eye roll. So not relaxing. Kids had a great time and other than these few complaints it was a very nice vacation. Read Less

We haven't been on a summer vacation in several years. We decided to kick off this summer with a cruise on the Oasis for our whole family (10 of us). It was actually cheaper for us to travel on this ship than it was on a Carnival Cruise line. We were in 2 rooms. My parents were in an Ultra Spacious Ocean view room with 4 kids. (Travel agents don't know about these rooms, we found out about it through RC). We were in an inside cabin with 2 other kids. The rooms were FANTASTIC. The Ultra Spacious is exactly that. Plenty of room for ALL of us to hang out. We traveled with a 4 year old and he LOVED Adventure Ocean for kids. I would go on this cruise again JUST so my 4 year old could be a part of aquanauts again!! The staff is OUTSTANDING! The entertainment on this ship is exceptional and will leave you amazed at the talent that ALL of these entertainers possess. DON'T miss the ice show!! Trust me, it's not just your average show on ice. You might want to save Cats for an afternoon performance. We saw it Monday night and something about a day spent in the sun and at sea, a full belly and the music of Cats that will put you right to sleep!! All but 3 of us in our family stayed past intermission, ha! About half of the audience left as well. The cast is very talented but the audience was very sleepy, ha! DON"T miss the aqua show in the back of the ship either. That is utterly amazing & breathtaking! The food in the Windjammer was VERY good. We have no complaints. We only ate in the Main Dining Room on lobster night and my mom and I didn't Love it. She found it to be pretty chewy and my prime rib wasn't good at all. BUT, the French onion soup, the Chocolate Molten Lava Cake and Creme Brulee werbvery good! :) On the last day at Sea, you will have an opportunity to meet the captain and the cruise director. GO SEE THEM!! They were very kind and interesting and answered all the questions!! You will find them on the 4th floor not "ON Air" as the cruise compass stated.;) If you play Bingo, buy the $69 packet and get the t shirt. That t shirt will get you an extra card at all the other games for the rest of the cruise. AND they also tell you later on that if you save your receipts from all the games played, you can get extra cards for free. This was info we didn't find out until later on. ;) You're welcome. ;) If you are going to St Maarten, just get off of the ship and have one of the local guys take you around the island. We paid $15pp vs the $50, $60, $70+ dollars it will cost you through one of the ships excursion. Also.. a Hidden Gem = The Yoda Guy museum. If you are a Star Wars fan, have your guide take you there on the way back to the ship. It's only $10pp and you will LOVE IT! My 4 boys and husband LOVED meeting The Yoda Guy and learning some behind the scenes information. This is a MUST Do!! :) In San Juan, just walk to the Fort that you can see from the ship. FYI Kids 15 and younger are FREE and everyone else is $7pp. IF you do the excursion through the ship it will cost you $79pp per adult and $69pp for child. I find this strange to charge for children when if you go on your own it is FREE! It's only about a 3 block walk and well worth the walk! My parents had a scooter that they used and they had NO problems getting to the Fort. Makes NO sense to pay for this excursion through the ship. Older people might have a harder time walking up the hill but if you have a scooter, its no problem at all. ;) In Labadee, we simply enjoyed the beach. Now, you must know that you will encounter the pushy people of Haiti selling their stuff but a stern "No Thank you!" and No eye contact seemed to work for me! ;) We traveled with a 4 year old and FIVE teenagers. They ALL had a GREAT time!! The teens have "The Living Room" to hang out in and the ship had daily activities for them. We would definitely do this again but first we need to put back $14.50pp per day to pay for the gratuities! That was a bit of an OUCH! when you take $14.50 times 10, times 7 days. I said we just paid for a whole other cruise in the price of gratuities! YIKES! So, as you are saving for your cruise, be sure and save for one extra person because that is what you will pay without realizing. Bon Voyage.... PS...Before you cruise, be sure and run to the Dollar store and pick up some of the silver over the door hangers as well as a dry erase board! You can see in my cabin review what I used those for. These were were some tips that I learned before I cruised this year and these items came in VERY handy!!! Read Less

My niece chose this cruise, her friends recommended it. Oasis of the Seas didn't disappoint. We were an extended family of eight... Aunts, Uncles, Grammas, Sisters, Spouses...ages 8, 18, 45, 50, 55, 61, 70 and 70. We shared three consecutive cabins w/balconies (14282, 14284 and 14286) great location. Cabins were quiet and roomier than I expected (I had not cruised in 20 years). Plenty of storage space (very efficient use of space). Loved this ship... you could do nothing or everything... its up to you. There are sooo many choices, be sure to spend some time before embarking to see what you want to enjoy! Great entertainment, loved Disco night. Reserve in advance for larger groups. I purchased the non-alcoholic beverage package and felt it was worthwhile. Loved going for my iced caramel lattes with almond milk at the Cafe Promenade, and the yummy non-alcoholic Pina Coladas. We did no food upgrades, no need for us. Service was excellent everywhere.Clean ship. I always enjoyed cruising and was soooo excited to be back on the "seas" (it had been over 20 years). I would surely recommend a balcony, looking out at the ocean was so beautiful and relaxing. Loved it day and night. . This was a great family vacay. We are planning another Oasis of the Seas cruise. Everyone had a great time. Effortless. Never felt crowded. Easy on/off. Print off and place cabin tags on luggage, you'll save time and be happy you did! Arrive early, board the ship as soon as possible, avoid lines, enjoy the ship before departure! Great gym too... come and enjoy Oasis of the Seas. There's something for everyone!!! Read Less

I chose RC at the last minute becasue we got a great deal. Whereas the overall ship was impressive to look at, it lacked a lot of details. ! of the 2 Drink machines ourtside of Sorrento's did not work the entire cruise. Do they not have a spare or someone that can fix these? 1 of the 2 ice cream machines by the pool only worked the first day. Once again, really?? I was unimpressed the free food choices. They want you to pay for anything above buffet food, basically. I've been on a few Carnival cruises and the Guy's Burger Joint was always packed and the food was wonderful! The "air-conditioning" in the cabin was a joke. I was told that it "met specs" by putting out 20.7C air. However, it could not remotely cool the room down. It took 2 dyas and 10 calls to Guest Services to get the champagne and cupcakes my wife had ordered for my birthday. Everyone seemed clueless when we even mentioned it! Our Kind converted twin beds would not stay together. I would wake up in a hole almost every night. I was not impressed with the food in the American Icon dining room and I reapeatedly had to ask, every evening, for a refill on my iced tea. The staff was very friendly though. The Windjammer conistently ran out of food options. The "taco bar" section only offered tacos and meat. I don't get it! My wife and I haved loved the piano bar on Carnival cruises. The Oasis piano comlpetely lacked any enthusiasm from the piano player and the seating arrangements had most people sitting with their backs to the piano which left them discconnected from the experience. I'm not sure if I will give RC another chance or not. Read Less

Cruised with extended family. This was one of the best cruise experiences that I've had. The junior suite was perfect. I loved the size of the junior suite, the large closet, balcony, and bathroom. The ship was very clean and I love the commercials on the ship televisions prompting the passengers to wash their hands. The public areas of the ship looked like a Vegas resort. The entertainment on the ship is unmatched in the cruise industry. We attended several shows. The show on ice and the show in the aqua theater were the best and reminded me of the live shows in Vegas. The food in the main dinning hall, the windjammer, chops, and the coastal kitchen was perfect every time. The service in all of the bars and restaurants was perfect and the servers with above and beyond the make the our cruising party happy. We booked a beach excursion win St. Maarten. The beach was great. We did not book an excursion in Haiti, but the beach in Labadee was very nice. We did not book an excursion in San Juan, we just went shopping in the area surrounding the port and visited Senor Frogs. This was our first cruise on Royal Caribbean and we are ready to book one for next summer. We had a great time and would recommend this cruise. Read Less

Our cabin steward was horrible. Provided horrible service and kicked us out of our rooms continuously. We would leave for activities and leave the tag in the door to clean our room. Several hours later when we returned, the room was still not cleaned and the steward would then kick us out of our rooms so that she could clean. The Shore Excursion staff sell by a bait and switch technique. Do not trust the videos on the TV about the excursions. Their excuse is that the videos were made for different ships and are not the excursion any longer. However, they do not tell you when you pay the price. Especially on the All Access Tour. When our tour was cut short due to a Bravo drill, there was no refund or consideration. They said they could have shown us pictures of the areas and that would have sufficed for the $119 tour. Ship was clean but looking it's age. All staff except for the steward and Shore Excursions were very nice and helpful. CATS has been running 3 years now and it needs to go. More people walked out than stayed for the performance. All the shows are starting to get weary. Haven't changed them in three years. Menus are also the same for the past three years however food is good!. Read Less

I have been on many cruises, and this one certainly didn't disappoint. The ship itself is very impressive and more massive than any ship I've ever sailed on. The first day was spent just exploring the ship and all it has to offer. There's no shortage of entertainment or things to do. Rock climbing wall, ice skating, casino, movies, bingo, crafting classes, spa, fitness center, pools, shopping, bars, restaurants, dance clubs, shows, comedy club, and so much more that slips my mind at the moment. My children enjoyed the kids Adventure Club and especially loved getting to stay up late doing whatever activities they had planned for that evening. The food in the main dining room was very good, much better than I remember it being on past cruises. Even the Windjammer Café had really good food and so much selection that there was always something that everyone liked, even my picky kids. The 24 hour pizza was delicious, always hot and fresh out of the oven. All in all it was a wonderful vacation for the whole family with something for everyone to enjoy. We will be back, hopefully soon! Read Less

We went with Royal Caribbean because we wanted to cruise on one of there larger ships. Oasis of the Sea. WOW. Been on Carnivals Vista. Great ship but nothing like the Oasis class of ships. The Ship,Staff,Food,are all top notch. Royal Caribbean is my new best Cruise Line. They impressed me. We purchased the drink package which I would highly recommend to anyone who plans on drinking anything other then water. The Food and servers are all top notch. Different foods were offered everyday with a large selection to choose from. The Stateroom Attendants were always around for any needs and the room was always kept clean.It seemed like all the people working on this ship really cared that you had a great time. Around the 14 hot tubs /4 pools there was never a problem finding a place to sit and there was never a bar more than 30 steps. All in All a First Class Company with a First Class Ship with First Class Staff. Read Less
