Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review by Travldworld
- Sail Date: January 2019
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Interior
Unfortunately this sailing was the one following the Norovirus outbreak...so we didn't have the usual cruise experience. People on their first cruise didn't know any different so it may have not been an issue for them. Until day 6 the staff had to serve at every buffet, and drink station, no salt and pepper shakers ( either to-go packets or they shook it for you), etc...it just kind of took away from the experience. Wishy Washy was everywhere and usually not optional. Staff was constantly wiping down handles, rails, walls, buttons, you name it...
We have agreed the food in the buffet areas was better on the Independence of the Seas. However, we were pleased with the Main Dining room and rather than stuff ourselves with somewhat flavorless food throughout the day we ordered several starters, entrees and desserts or multiples of each! No complaints there!
We chose to see Oasis of Dreams, Frozen In Time, Come Fly With Me and the headliner show ( Acapella group ReVoiced). All wereamazing! We opted out of Cats. Make sure you reserve your tickets in advance (usually soon after final payment is due). Additionally, make sure you also arrive at least 20 min before showtime just to get a seat! Every show was crowded.
My daughter ( age 9) absolutely loved kids club and many times preferred going there over any other activity. It also made it easy to meet up with kids at the pool that she already knew.
Disembarking was a complete mess...like it was their first time! We were supposed to disembark at 8:45. We ended up skipping breakfast and making it to the the designated floor before 8...only because the entire deck was full already! Lines were going everywhere and nobody knew where to go. Finally they made announcements and it was a mad dash...and was after 9 before we made it to customs.
We had a great time and made the most of everything. QWe are already planning on another Royal Caribbean Cruise!
