  3. Oasis of the Seas
Our first time on a mega ship this size. We got a good price and went for it. I've been on around 14 cruises and 7 of them on RCCL. The Oasis of the seas was a very nice ship but even with its size, 6000 people was just too much. It was like standing in line at Disney for everything. Getting on and off at port calls was a slow process. We never ate at the main dinning because the only dinning time we could get was at 8:00 pm. Just too late for us to eat dinner. The windjammer buffet on all the RCCL ships we've been on were great with good quality food. But the buffet on the Oasis was very disappointing. Poor quality food, with limited selections. The staff didn't keep the buffet up either. Ship was clean. Drink servers were hard to come by on deck. High price drinks with 18% tip way over the top. Room steward was great. Overall...no more mega ships for me...The food and overall service much better on ships with 4000 or less passangers

Nice ship but way toooo may people
