Traveled with children

We enjoy Oasis of the seas for our teenage children. There is so much to keep them busy. All kinds of activities all the time and with several sea days, this gives them time to enjoy everything. My boys liked hanging out at the basketball courts and the table tennis, my girls enjoy the pool deck. They all enjoy the rock climbing, dive show and other shows, bingo, listening to the musicians and the planned activities. There are always other kids around to hang with and they really enjoyed making new friends. They also love the pizza shop, hot dog shop, ice cream cones, and eating in the main dining room.

Having said that, we have cruised a LOT and this is NOT our favorite ship. It is very crowded at all times and there is a line for everything. From the snack/coffee shop, to getting a slice of pizza, be prepared to wait. It was difficult to find pool chairs on sea days, the bars got crowded and we had to wait for drinks around dinner time, bingo was absolutely ridiculous, there were so many people playing that someone got bingo after only 5 numbers were drawn which really takes any fun out of it. The service was spot on as we have come to expect with Royal Caribbean, from the state room attendant to the servers in the main dining room and the bartenders, everyone gave 5* service. I, personally, just prefer a smaller more intimate ship (without so many lines).

But for a family adventure this is certainly the right ship!

Cabin Review

Nice Cabin. They had upgraded the plug so there is an extra outlet which is nice since they won't allow extension cords if they have a ground fault. Otherwise it is a pretty typical state room.
