No more RC

I chose Oasis because I had already been on Allure and it was good. This was also the closest port to my home and easiest to get to. The embarkation was a nightmare, with taking over an hour to get thru security. ...

Nice ship but that’s about it

I was expecting a lot more out of Royal Caribbean. Especially after hearing how it would be from ppl that I’ve talked to. The ship itself was very nice. But the food was horrible in comparison to carnival. We only ...

Norovirus hit the ship and got 7 of the 10 traveling with so sick, including a 1 year old and a 5 year old. The crew was doing what they could, it just wasn't enough. They gave everyone free movies and free room ...

Good experience overall, with a few major drawbacks

The two of us got onboard Oasis on 12/9 to enjoy the 8-day Western Caribbean tour. Overall, the experience was positive, as 85-90% of the trip was well organized and executed. The reason for 2-star rating were those ...

Too Many People, Poor Service, Few Amenities

First, This is a big boat. But it's mostly storage for all of the passengers. There are not enough amenities to host all of the passengers comfortably. Many times we found we had to wait in lines to be seated for ...

Waste of time and money

The ship itself is magnificent. There is nothing physical that is not impressive. Central Park is a wonder at sea. The Promenade is like nothing I could imagine. But, all that wonder ends when it comes to the ...

Cruise with caution!

We chose this cruise with my in-laws and wife’s sister and her husband because it seemed like a good deal. $1000 each for a week on one of RC’s premier ships, the Oasis of the Seas. Be warned: this ship is worn ...

If you are hesitant to take a cruise, this boat isn't for you.

We were on the fence about cruising to say the least. 2 kids under the age of 5 and a family that prefers peace and quiet, luxury in terms of vacations. The boarding process was the first indication this was ...
