This is not our first cruise on the Oasis class so I find us doing some comparison between all the Oasis ships. The ship is similar to the other Oasis class with the difference of the slides, shows, and some other tweaks. The service from the MDR, Specialty Dining, Buffet, Room Cabins, and other Cafes are great. Unfortunately, there are also some things that need improvement. 1) The other Oasis class seem to do better in controlling crowds. For some reason, I feel the crowd and long lines of Harmony. There seems to be LONG LINES to do anything on Harmony. 2) The kids camp needs some innovation. The kids would rather venture out outside the camp than they did when they were in the other Oasis line. The counselors are always OUTNUMBERED. They are not as personable as the Oasis. I remembered the counselors on the Oasis would give the kids high fives and just goof around as kids. The counselors on this ship seems like they are just doing the normal routine in and out. The camps also didn't offer anything new and exciting to the kids. It's the same program year after year. They should come up with cool cooking class or experiment class rather than the same GAGA ball all the time. 3) Café Promenade is ALWAYS pack with only one person doing the specialty coffee. The LINES are always long through out the day. I am always trying to avoid the long lines but Café promenade was the only place that serves the specialty coffee (aside from Vitality spa which I didn't know until Day 6) The Buffet Bar and the Park Café doesn't serve the specialty coffee like they do with the other Oasis line, quite a disappointment. Coffee is a big thing to some folks lol Harmony was great but I didn't get the wow effect which lead us to try another cruise line.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 7D 8180
The closet space or configuration is way better than Oasis and Allure. It's easier to get into. I also loved the plug right next to the bed.
