We chose this cruise as our annual group cruise and it was a very fun-filled 7 days! The embarkation initially seemed daunting but, surprisingly, we got through the very long line quite efficiently and were onboard in about 1/2 hour!! Once everyone became acclimated to the sheer size of the Oasis, we all settled in to enjoy all she has to offer both on our own and with our group. Our cabin was a balcony cabin on deck 8 mid/forward. It was especially comfortable due to the addition of eggcrates to the bed! Like sleeping on a cloud!! The only thing negative about this cabin, which was no fault of RC, was a family with a screaming/crying child next door. They were also smoking on the balcony, a big no-no which Guest services took care of. Our experience interacting with staff (waiters, cabin stewards etc) was wonderful with nothing negative to report. Service was outstanding in our opinion. Our first sea day was a little rocky, which came as a surprise since in May we felt no motion on this ship. But we got through it with no problems. We found the food to be very good, maybe because they have a new executive chef aboard. We ate in the Main Dining Room each night. We also loved the Solarium for breakfast/lunch along with Park Cafe and Dining Room. Only ate one time in the Windjammer (breakfast)and food there was very good as well. There are so many free dining options aboard and we recommend trying them all!! The shows were all incredible, and even though we had seen most of them before, we happily enjoyed them again! had heard from others that the headliner comedian was terrible (offensive and just not funny). We caught his act on the final night and I think someone must have had a "talk" with him. He wasn't terrible but not very impressive either. Thinking this may be his last time with RCCL!! We loved Labadee and had a great beach day there. We skipped Jamaica although we enjoyed tours there on prior cruises. We met up with friends and had a leisurely lunch and margaritas at Poncho's Backyard on Cozumel and did a little shopping as well. All in all, we had a wonderful time cruising on OasisI would very definitely cruise this ship again doing Eastern Caribbean next time!!

Amazing cruise with amazing friends

Cabin Review

Cabin 8600
Very comfortable but the configuration was a bit different from other balcony staterooms we've had with the closet facing into the room as opposed to being opposite the bathroom. Not bad, just different. This cabin has a large balcony- deeper, not wider. Bed has 2 eggcrates which made sleeping incredibly comfortable. Lots of storage space and everything we had fit in this cabin with no feeling of clutter. Quiet (unless you get a screaming child next door!!) and well situated, being steps away from Central Park.
