Oasis of the seas was my 3rd Royal Caribbean ship to sail on but 10th ship overall, the cruise was from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona 1st September to 13th September, and I travelled with my brother and my parents. The cruise only had one port of call Malaga with 9 days at sea.
We had a one night pre cruise stay in Fort Lauderdale, hotel was selected by Royal Caribbean and it was a stone’s throw from the pier. The hotel was adequate although we were only there for a couple of hours due to the inbound flight being delayed we didn't get to the hotel till 01:30 in the morning and we were being picked up around 11:00 the following morning, the hotel breakfast was quite expensive roughly $100 for 4 adults, the food selection was adequate.
We were staying in a balcony stateroom overlooking central park, we had 11243 and 11245 which were towards the rear of the ship and near the rear lifts.The cabins have different layouts, in 11243 the couch was near the balcony and the beds were near the wardrobes. In 11245, the couch was near the wardrobes and the bed near the balcony. The latter being the better layout, as the couch is near the wardrobes there is little room and you have to sit on the bed to get items out of the wardrobe.The rooms have a nice outlook especially at night as the park is lit up, in the daytime the balcony is quite noisy as the kids pool is above the balconies and they also have live bands up on the deck.
