  3. Oasis of the Seas
We choose this ship after several rips out of Ft Lauderdale and Oasis was highly rated. Our problems started with a cramped balcony room # 6578, with little storage and a stuck closet door. It took me over one hour to fix the closet that was stuck on a safe door. The safe was in the closet and the door hung up. Needless to say a bad idea. We had intermittent hot water over the seven day voyage. What a pain to have a very luke warm shower every morning and several evenings. Very unpleasant and never really fixed over 7 days. The windjammer buffet was very poor. Design and food was lack luster and was avoided by others at all costs except emergency food. Main dining was another clear disaster. Staff at our table of 10 was clueless. Wine service, delivery of food and attention to detail was very poor. The food was generally fair but some appetizers were poor. Service was slow and nearly cold food many of the days. We were stuck in St Thomas with engine problems from 4:30 pm (all aboard) to 11:30 pm with no explanation while the ship just sat there. The shows were good except for the Aqua show that never appear due to rain. Chops was also very good along with the Park Cafe for lunch. We have been to St Thomas and St Martin before. We had Kontiki trip at St Thomas that was very good. The guys weer great, food and drinks very good. Worth the cost. Overall the ship was too big, service was lackluster, food so so, cabin small with problems, casino full of smoker's and not too our overall likes. Many others also complained. Next time samller is better overall.
