My wife and I sailed with another couple, staying in one of the very nice Aqua Theater Suites. These suites are in the rear of the ship and have large (600 sq.ft.+) wrap around balconies. The room itself was nice, with two bedrooms, two baths and a spacious living room. Our cabin steward was Dimitri. He was great, as were most of the staff. Embarkation was smooth, especially considering the number of people they were boarding. It helped that we were in a suite, as we were able to board sooner. This enabled us to get to the spa quickly to reserve the Thermal Suite passes. There are only 30 of these sold...so you need to get to them quickly. The Thermal Suite was very small. Only 4 thermal beds (two of which were not working for part of the cruise) and three small saunas. This seems to be a miss calculation in the design for such a large amount of guests. I noted that the molding in the sauna was coming off, one of several signs of aging on this 5 year old ship. We ate in the Solarium Bistro in the evenings. This is a much quieter atmosphere than the main dining rooms. We also tried Giovanni's, Chops Grille, 150 Park, and Coastal Kitchen. We also ate in the Windjammer several times. All venues were very good, with Chops and Giovanni's being our favorites. We used the workout facilities several times while on board. Many of the cardio machines did not work, frustrating several passengers. But, we still managed to burn off the calories we took in. This ship has a walking/jogging track that is almost 1/4 mile around...very nice. The staff on this ship was very accommodating and friendly, starting with Ricky (Cruise Director) and everyone thereafter. The entertainment was good. The comedy show was excellent, as was "Come Fly With Me". Cats seemed a little long.

Wonderful Cruise on the Oasis

Cabin Review

Spacious AquaTheater Suite - 1 Bedroom
Cabin A3 10730
Great cabin for couples traveling together. Spacious and well appointed. One downside, it is located in the rear of the ship so there is a lot of walking to where ever you are going. We did not mind at all.
