  • Sail Date: Nov 2016
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

We mostly chose the cruise because we had not yet been on the Oasis and Port Canaveral was convenient. Having read MANY Cruise Critic reviews we were concerned about the food and the crowds.

Firstly the food was much better than expected. While mostly subjective, we have come to expect food that "is as good as you can get when serving 6000 passengers." We were pleasantly surprised particularly in the main dining room. The food was prepared well, served promptly and tasted better than we expected. We also ate at Chops and Giovanni's. Both were excellent as we have come to expect from the specialty venues. One dissapointment was Sabor. On the Freedom we had an outstanding experience at Sabor's but here on Oasis it was not as good. Some dishes were over done, others bland.

The ship's condition was excellent! It did not feel crowded at all. Even the elevator access and availability was good. My wife is in a wheelchair and this has been a serious concern in the past. But again, it was not an issue on Oasis at all.

The staff were all pleasant and professional. The entertainment was very good though we couldn't possibly see it all. Though special mention must be given to the Ice Show which was spectacular.

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin D5 12162

Handicap accessible cabin was spacious and clean. Roomy balcony for wheelchair. Accessible bathroom with roll-in shower. Sink not really well thought out for a wheelchair user but we managed.
