I chose Oasis because I had already been on Allure and it was good. This was also the closest port to my home and easiest to get to. The embarkation was a nightmare, with taking over an hour to get thru security. Once on the ship, they did not open the rooms until 2:15 p.m. Muster was also bad. We arrived 25 minutes early and were told to stand single file and must face forward. We were literally shoulder to shoulder in a line and were not allowed to move, because the ship staff member was trying to be a great authority on this whole thing. We had a 6:00 p.m. dining time each day pre-arranged, but the first night, we were escorted back to the elevators and taken to an upstairs restaurant. Every other night in the main dining room they failed to have our table and twice were sent to an already occupied table forcing us to stand in the center of the dining room until they envented a tablel for us. We never ate in the same area or had the same waiter all week. Drink prices were outrageous and food was very mediocre. At disembarkation, it seemed half the ship decided to get off with their luggage, with lines around the entire Prominade area for hours. Not a good experience on the Oasis and will not be using RC for vacations in the future.

No more RC

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 4D 9664
Cabin was average size. However, there was no bed skirt on the bed and had to look at the metal bed frame with luggage under it for 7 days. No scarf or any decorative material on bed, just white sheets. No toiletries provided other than two small round soaps once.
Steward was good at providing ice each day and changing towels in a timely manner.
