We did the Western Caribbean cruise on the Oasis of the Seas in July 2017. We were excited to see all that such a huge ship had to offer (all of our previous cruises had been on normal-sized Carnival or Costa ships) but were wondering if it wouldn’t feel overcrowded. Our concerns were unfounded – it was a great experience. Embarking and disembarking were very smooth. Lines were long but moved on the way in (we got there at about noon) but disembarking was crazy easy – we had our bags and were through customs and outside in less than 15 minutes. We made our “my dining” and show reservations as soon as they became possible to make via the website (several months before the cruise). I would highly recommend that – there were long lines for my dining and some of the shows for those who hadn’t made prior reservations. We had to wait about ten minutes once for a table at dinner, but that was it. The ship’s “neighborhoods” and several pools really did spread everyone out. Our youngest was 16 so we spent a lot of our time in the Solarium at the front of the ship, which was calm and we never had trouble getting chairs. The shows were absolutely fantastic and of top notch quality – far superior to the Carnival shows we had seen before (admittedly on shorter, five-day cruises). We were able to see all of them – the divers, ice show (both sometimes canceled if the seas are too rough), Cats, a guest “headliner” Mo5aic (unreal!) and Come Fly With Me – a home grown RCCL show that was incredible. Overall, I’d highly recommend a cruise on the Oasis – just make sure you book your dining and shows early.

Cabin Review

Family Interior Stateroom

Cabin FI

We had two adjoining cabins which worked out great for our family of four with two teenagers. We had a queen bed and the other room had two twins. Lots of space for everyone.
