If you want mediocre at top shelf prices, Oasis of the Seas is for you.

It looks like Four Seasons, but is at best Holiday Inn.

The food looks like Sullivans, but is not. Even the "Specialty Restaurants" which cost extra are below average. Basically the food is not good.

One good thing though is the crew are very nice people, they truly are.

Also, the exercise facilities are fabulous. As good as it gets.

The overall feeling onboard is very pleasant, initially. Most passengers are trying to have a good time in view of all the money they hope they spent well. But by the time the cruise is over it is a different story.

Comparing the dollars spent to other cruise lines, Oasis of the Seas is a terrible value. You pay as if it were the best of the best, and it is not.

5,400 passengers is ridiculous. Going ashore is like going to Disneyland on the 4th of July, a waste of time. The ship's "shore excursions" are not fairly More priced. Our excursions were pathetic, as were all of the passengers I spoke to.

Their electronic abilities are excellent when it comes to collecting your money. Outside of that, forget it. The Royal Caribbean website was designed by a cretin. Learning about your upcoming trip is difficult. Onboard internet is $0.65/ min. Trying to figure out what you paid for and where you are supposed to be onboard is difficult.

I have cruised many other ships in the past, and would never consider Oasis of the Seas, or Royal Caribbean again. Never, ever, ever. For us it was a complete waste of money. We actually did not enjoy it. Less

Cabin was actually nice. The cabin steward was a very, very nice person.
