  3. Oasis of the Seas
My wife and I have been on about 80 cruises over the years. We love the activities that are normally under the direction and scheduling of the Cruise Director. Their planning and enthusiasm was disappointing. One comedian with the same routine all week in a room that held about 125 people on a ship with 7000 passengers. No pre-diner music. Virtually nothing to do on board during port days. Many mistakes in daily schedule. Only one Prominade parade, and weak at that. No deck parties. No evening buffets. Lackluster 70's party with only 3 village People, and the sailor was female. "Seriously?" The showrooms are to small to accommodate more than a small percentage of the ships passengers, so reservations must be made. We had three shows cancelled and we were rescheduled but not informed. It was quite frustrating. As if the common areas were not small and crowded already, RC decided to bastardize their Viking Lounge to add even more rooms, as well as convert many, many storage rooms into small interior rooms
