e sailed on the Oasis of the Seas July 22nd, 2018... It was great if you love waiting in lines because they were everywhere. RC is trying to pack as many people as they can on a boat bc it's all about money and not the customer's experience. First the lost all our show reservations leaving us to wait in stand by lines. Their response- we shouldn't have booked the shows so early, we should've waited until a couple days before the cruise. Next, the Aquatheater was broke down the 5/7 days so they just showed fail videos the whole week. Then, the main Opal Theater broke down Wednesday leaving just random fill in shows the weren't worth sitting through ( we even tried). The main headline shows-Cats and Come Fly with Me were canceled. Their response- it's unfortunate but there's other entertainment you can do instead. The ice skating show was good but you couldn't ice skate unless you wanted to show up an hour early and, you guessed it, wait in line. We tried... and failed 2 mornings in a row. Even the Wind Jammer, Sorrentos had lines every morning and evening. With the 2 main show venues down, Royal Caribbean set a record for how many people you can stuff in 3 tiny pools... In sum, for $7000 for the week, we got to eat a bunch of pizza, stand in line after line, hear the same jokes from every other RC cruise, have the two main theaters break down the majority of the time after they lost all our prebooked reservations. When we spoke to customer service- they responded with sorry, nothing we can do. We loved RC and have been loyal customers until now. Save your money and cruise with Norwegian, Carnival or Princess. Their boats may not hold 5400 passengers but you will not be over crowded and hearded like cattle, and if they drop the ball, they will take care of the customer.

Don't do it!!!
