  3. Oasis of the Seas
We have cruised three times in total. Two on the Liberty of the Seas, and our last trip was on the Oasis. We expected the Oasis to be a much better ship than the Liberty. It was not. It is a nice ship, but needs a face lift, lots of small broken things on the ship, it's just not a perfectly clean ship. All the workers were great and we enjoyed ourselves. The windjammer on the Liberty is much better. The neighborhoods were very neat. My Time dining was great, very good food quality. Starbucks was great to have on the ship! Unfortunately we were rerouted to San Juan and Labadee (instead of St. Thomas and St. Kitts). San Juan seemed to be not such a safe place (everything had barbed wire outside of Old San Juan). Labadee beaches were great, and the view from the ship is amazing!!! Labaedee vendors again were WAY to pushy. The open play area was amazing compared to Liberty but lacked chairs for the parents to sit and relax while watching... this led to parents sitting on the ground or on kids couches. The workers at adventure ocean 3-5 year olds and the nursery were great. They made us feel very comfortable when leaving our 1 year old for morning nap. The 3-5 year old room was amazing, my daughter would have never left if we didn't make her come with us :) Overall, I would say that the ship is not a better ship than Liberty, but there are more things to do. The food did not seem better than Liberty as well. Therefore, we will most likely sail on the freedom class again if it is cheaper than the Oasis class.

Good not Great

Cabin Review

Cabin 14678
The balcony was very nice, besides having an obstructed view. The room was arranged much nicer than an inside stateroom.
