  3. Oasis of the Seas
1) 100% occupied - yes and no on feeling crowded. Get up early or go dine early, and you will not feel like there are 5400 passengers. Get anywhere during peak times and you will feel crowded (stay away from Windjammer). Pool area - always crowded. Hate all the towel place holders......RCI - you need to enforce the rules! 2) Entertainment selection - all very good (book on-line way in advance). Adult comedy show with Steve White was hilarious! 3) Solarium - lounge hogs....again RCI needs to enforce people holding onto the premium locations. Solarium is a nice break from all the annoying kids (yes, I have kids too but they are not allowed to act like there are no rules)........hated the parents who allowed their kids under 16 to go into the Solarium to eat / hot tub in the adult section! 4) Staff - friendliness was hit or miss --- 50/50 - I can't point out 1 that was "WOW" 5) Bar service was slow, unfriendly, and most of the time seemed annoyed. 6) Drink packages......they advertise Evian water and give you Crystal Geyser, red wine selection was just okay (the ones offered per glass) 7) Agree with others - COFFEE was SO bad! Taste like hot water with brown food coloring! 8) Food quality - this was 50/50 - some nights - a hit, other nights - disappointing.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • We went to Forum Shops
    We went on the jewelry hunt as RCI advertised. What a disappointment...cheap charms from China, probably less than a dime and it was just not even worth going. The jewelry staff were not friendly if you did not buy anything from them. I don't understand why RCI pushes Diamond International - don't be fooled that you are saving tons.

    Because I booked independently, my family got a private tour and he got us there before all the tour buses and we did not have to wait in the long, long, very long lines via RCI.........very long - I felt sorry for the other people!

    Beach was overcrowded. Agree with others that the shops are aggressive but we did spend money because they were all harmless and my kids got a kick out of them calling them to come "bless them" with purchasing even a tiny bracelet.
