I have avoided Carnival because I have heard bad reviews and that the overall atmosphere is geared toward the "party crowd". I took this cruise because I won it, so it was free. I was apprehensive, but went into it with hopes that Carnival would rise to the occasion and impress me, which for the most part, they did. The staff was outstanding! They were not only friendly and helpful, but very knowledgable! The ship was in surprisingly good condition and well maintained and clean! Yay! I did not care for the design as much.. It was difficult to get form one end of the ship to the other without going through the casino and breathing the second hand smoke. Yuck. And we went to talk to the crew about re-booking another cruise, but it was right next to the casino and the smoke was just too much. We said we'd come back, but never did. The food was ok. It was better in the Dining room than in the buffet. The Guys Burger joint was GREAT!! And the pizza was pretty good too. Service was excellent, and the shows were really good!! I was quite impressed with the production quality, given their space and technical limits. They did an outstanding job! The talent in the shows was fabulous!! We had the pleasure of meeting one of the performers- Naomi Murray. She is incredible! Beautiful voice, bubbly personality, and excellent performer! Meeting her and seeing the shows was definitely a highlight of our trip! We also saw the comedians at the Comedy Club. The new club manager, Kasey for Canada is charming and so funny!! She made everyone feel right at home!! And the best comedian i've seen on a ship was Doug Williams! He was HILARIOUS!!! We only went to his PG shows, and we were rolling in the floor! We really enjoy comedians who are funny without relying on crass humor and bad language. That is REAL talent!! Good job Doug, and thank you Carnival for continuing to offer PG shows!! There were some things for young children, like the Dr Seuss parade and story time. Also there was a build a bear workshop that was fun for little ones. We didn't see very many teens on board, and there's a reason for that. There is just not much for teens. It is definitely a party ship... There were always fun games and entertainment in the main lobby, usually hosted by Cookie, the new cruise director. He is HILARIOUS and SO FUN!!! The music trivia games were always packed to the top balcony with people on all levels dancing, singing and participating! He does a great job getting everyone involved and having fun! Our cabin was quite spacious with plenty of storage space. I thought the bathroom was quite adequate for a ship, except i prefer a split bath. Our cabin steward Apollonio? was great!! Always smiling when we saw him and he cleaned our room and left the most adorable towel animals!! I even did the towel folding class and bought the book! Overall, i was really impressed and had a great time. My biggest complaint (and i wasn't alone- i heard people commenting on this the whole cruise) was the lack of hand cleaning before dining. I've been on other ships where a crew member stands just outside the dining room / restaurant and dispenses hand cleaner to EVERYONE as they enter. I'm shocked that in the midst of flu season, they didn't do that, and some of the hand washing facilities near the restaurants didn't even work very well. I asked one of the crew who was working the food service on the buffet line why there weren't crew members making people sanitize their hands as they entered, (especially in a buffet!) and he said, "Oh we only do that if there's a Government Inspector onboard". That is not ok. The major drawbacks (aside from the hand cleaning neglect) were the smoke from the casino, the layout of the ship which makes it had to get around without going through the casino, and the attire of some guests. I don't understand why it's ok for guests to were thong bikinis at the family pool area. I guess if they want to wear them, the adult area would be ok, but I don't want to see people's butts when i'm walking around the ship or swimming in the pool, and how is that sanitary for them to be sitting in chairs like that?? Ick. Also, i hated the spa. The atmosphere was not at all soothing or relaxing feeling.. it doesn't even LOOk like a spa. The staff in the spa were the only rude people we encountered on the ship. The sauna, however was the nicest one i've ever seen! I was disappointed that my husband and i couldn't together in the sauna, there are separate sauna for men and women. Sad face. Our excursion was to Atlantis for Beach Day. I would NOT recommend paying for the water park there if you are on a cruise, you can't get off the ship before the park opens and by the time you would get to the waterpark, the lines are already long. The price for the waterpark for cruisers should be considerably less. If i were staying at the resort a night or two, i would totally pay for the waterpark. But for cruising, i think the beach day is the best for the price (for Atlantis). The beaches are pristine, the aquarium and exhibits are really nice and fun to explore! Very Disney! On the beach, of course the vendors are very aggressive. You have to just smile and say "no, thank you" over and over. But it didn't bother me. They are just trying to make a living, and they aren't rude, just persistent. And I HIGHLY recommend pay for Faster to the Fun!! We zipped through embarkation, debarkation, and lines at Guest Relations, easy peezy!! And there were a few other perks... Totally worth it! Read Less

I gave my wife for Christmas a cruise gift which it was Carnival Liberty on 1/28/18 we have a 8 month old baby which unfortunately got sick on the first day of the cruise took him to the doctor that is at Carnival Liberty he had a rash and the doctor said it was measles he told us to stay in the room and don't take them out of the room until we got back to the port in Cape Canaveral we were stuck in a room for two and a half days after the first day I complaint didn't get a call or asked if we need it anyting it's a shame that they were worried of my son getting everybody on the ship sick which I Emma wife understood but they did not care about us they just stuck us in a room to fend for ourselves it's a real shame that the only ones that really tried to help it was two gentlemen from housekeeping and as soon as we got back to Cape Canaveral we were one of the first ones to get escorted out of the ship took my son to the hospital and ended up that was not the measles on top of that they sent Health Services of Orange County to my house it's a real shame what was supposed to be nice trip especially for my wife that's been a great mother it wasn't don't want any money or free Cruise from Carnival but kindness and caring for other people goes a long way Read Less

We are long standing Royal Caribbean cruisers (17 years) with Diamond Status... soon to be Diamond Pus... My wife became disabled last year and this cruise proved to be the WORST experience we have ever seen since she became disabled. There was no evidence of "family handicapped restrooms," which required us to return all the way to our cabin if my wife needed a restroom. On a ship almost four football fields long, this can be a long walk to the restroom! The passageways were narrow during embarkation and debarkation we virtually had to roll over other people's luggage and the staff did little to help us. Only the officers we saw took any action to assist. I chaulk this up to training and lack of supervision! The ship was so crowded, people in wheelchairs and/or scooters found it difficult to get in/off elevators without other passengers glaring at them for holding them up. Moving around in the dining rooms was like trying to negotiate a maze. The crew/staff seemed untrained to handle these situations. Unlike older class ships where their were entrances on multi-decks, and people in wheel chairs might find space closer to the stages, the only way to view a show in any of the theaters on the Oasis was from the very back and top of the theater. To many this is known as the "nosebleed" section. Even then, many times THESE areas were taken up by NON-Handicapped passengers and the staff would do nothing to fix this. Being told to come earlier is not an acceptable answer, as any handicapped person knows, we move slower in crowded situations such a 6,000-passenger ship. I wonder if Royal Caribbean ships pass the guidelines for American's with Disabilities Act.. or being an international Company, they are not required? At any rate. this was a HORRIBLE experience.

My daughter and I arrived to the cruise port around 10:15 in the morning. We parked our car at the terminal and carried our luggage to the porters. Quickly went thru security and check in counter and stood close to the boarding area. The room was already full but boarding started shortly after....just before eleven. They started with suites and diamond and worked down from there. Don’t sit in the chairs unless you are not looking to get on the ship fast. Stay by the boarding area for quick entrance. Boarding was easy. Passing all the “hey, you want to buy” tables we made our way up to deck eight where Park Cafe is located. I’m sure other opinions have stated just how good their roast beef sandwiches were and yes, they were good, but it really depends on what piece of meat you end up with. Yes, they have a make your own salad but there’s not a lot of items to choose from. Went to see our room at one. We were in Room 8707 which is a balcony overlooking the Boardwalk. Nice size room for two people. The bed was beside the balcony. Apparently, every other room either has the bed there or beside the closet. Beside the closet would make if a little tough to get into the closet. One large suitcase fit nicely under the bed but the other one would not. We left it standing up on the small table by the closet. There was two easy to reach power connectors. A hair dryer in the drawer. Open the safe by pulling on the right top corner even when it seems the safe is closed. The bathroom shower had wonderful “water power.” Bring your own shampoo, conditioner and lotions. The room’s temperature was fine but I like it really cool when I go to sleep so bring a portable fan. Noise in the balcony rooms seem to be a favorite topic of discussion. We were located pretty close to being over Johnny Rockets. We could see the Aqua theatre from our room. My daugher, who has wonderful hearing, could hear noise on certain nights, especially the last night. If noise truly bothers you then I would avoid these type rooms and either go for an inside room or a room overlooking the ocean. That said, I would book this room again because you can always get a crying baby or loud neighbors. It’s a toss up. Was not that bad too me and it was fun people watching from the balcony. I did bring two magnets. One to clip the curtains tightly closed and the other to hold important papers on the wall. Yep, on the wall. They now have egg crate type things on the mattresses so the beds are now doable. Pillows are really thin. Downright horrible. Thankful we had brought our own. If you do nothing else stuff a pillow in your suitcase. We purchased the ultimate drink package and also internet for my daughter. Do not buy these at full price. Never. They will go on sale precruise and never be cheaper on board. Keep checking online. We are not big drinkers but with the discount price of $345 we felt it was worth it. Speciality coffees (not Starbucks though), soda cup, fresh squeezed orange juice, water bottles, and all (13 dollars and under) alcohol drinks are included in package. The fresh squeezed orange juice is so much better than the free syrupy orange juice. It was nice to try this and that without factoring in cost. Chocolate martinis and mudslides are “must-try’s.” I brought some large straws for the soda drink cup. Small ones do not work well. Soda machines are located on Deck Five and in the Windjammer there are four of them. I think I saw one in the teen club too. Internet worked well with the exception of a few spotty times. Worth the price. We purchased the “first night” done right dinner for our first night. It’s a toss up which restaurant you get. We were booked in the Italian restaurant. Lots of good food. The food kept coming after we were “way done.” Service was excellent but then again, we were one of the first people there just after 5pm. It was quickly filling up after our order was taken. If you want to try a speciality restaurant go for the first night done right for half price. By doing so you would also avoid the craziness of the first night dining room. We booked the “my time” dining time. Had our times booked for each night before we boarded. Makes it easier to prebook because when you get to the dining room it will split into those that have reservations and those that don’t. It’s crazy in there. Formal nights were the first sea day and second sea day. Prime rib and lobster were offered the second formal and both were really good. Dining room service was excellent though all staff were running around looking like they would never catch up. Breakfast in the dining room offers one side buffet and the other order at your table. Here the buffet looked pretty good. We chose order at the table and due to a really new employee my order got all mixed up. Two eggs over medium ended up a mushroom omelet. The waiters trainer apologized with something like a language barrier. I’m thinking the guy is going to have lots of trouble waiting on New Yorker’s and their fast talking compared to my Southern drawl. Where Oasis of the Seas fails is the Windjammer. The Grandeur of the Seas buffet is so much better than the Oasis. With 6,000 passengers the Oasis has a relatively small buffet and choices. Seriously, it’s low class food and I’m far from being a food critic. Pizza was doable and the wipe out cafe had some good fries. I always brought some cookies back to my room Incase I got the munchies late at night. We did the same with water. Kept a couple of bottles in our room. We always took bottles of water off to excursions, as well as, towels if needed. We did two excursions. In Jamaica we did the Dune Buggy experience thru Royal Caribbean which required just over an hour driving on a bus to get there. Our bus was nice and held around 25 people. The ride was awesome as we listed to our tour guide tell us about the area. It’s a wonderful way to see some of Jamaica. The dune bug ride was fun but actually I was hoping for more water experience. Maybe, they were lacking in rain when we went. That said, it was still a fun day. My daughter did “swimming with the dolphins” at the park in Cozumel. Right outside the port you get a taxi for twelve dollars. They only take cash so have change for a tip too. I had to pay, I think it was twenty one dollars, to get in the park. Her VIP swim, which included lunch, drinks and another quick swim with the mammoths....and snorkeling gear for $119. That price was an online special so look for that. The buffet lunch that was included was not that good so do not spend the extra $40.00 if you are not swimming for it. She had a blast and was the highlight of the trip for her. Your kids would enjoy it. We spent some money at the casino. Now know very few people end up winners. For every one person that brags about winning there were a few thousand losers. Set your budget and treat it as dinner and movies every night. The casino is split up into smoking and nonsmoking and it seems the nonsmoking section is bigger. You can truly play without smoke bothering you. On the smoking side play the money grab game. Quick hit games on both sides did not pay out on this cruise. The bar in the casino is pretty good. Smoking should not be a problem if you are a non smoker. Smoking is limited to one side of the casino, deck 15 by the pool bar and deck 16 by the pool bar. That’s it. If you do smoke I believe you will find these places pleasant and partly covered for bad weather. We saw a few shows. Comedy show was really funny so make sure you book that show before boarding. Come Fly with me is worth your time. The aqua show was good. I saw Cats before and knew it was not worth my time. We saw the belly flop and sexy man contest, both at the aqua theater. I felt both were funny. We participated in the Quest where my daughter was a Captain. If pantless men and braless women bother you then I’m thinking you should skip it. If not, help your team by having Mexican and Candian coins and false teeth. Central Park is pretty. Boardwalk is calling for kids. We would sit on our balcony and watch kids do jump rope and play games that were offered on the boardwalk. We saw small kids finishing eating in the windjammer and singing a song with the staff members as they headed back to the kids club. There must of been twenty kids, all looking happy and singing. Not one tear so I’m thinking the Kids Club is a happy place. They have a cute little swimming area for the little ones. I did see a life guard on duty. There’s several ping pong tables on the sports deck. Teenagers and adults are going to love all the volleyball and dodgeball competitions. So, leave your little ones in the kids club as you head for some adult time knowing he/she is happy. Now after what we experienced on this cruise I must tell you to “take note” of where the bathrooms are located Incase of an emergency. As my daughter and I were headed down our hallway to our room early one night we both blamed each other for the horrible smell. Then I looked down and saw “crap” all the way down the hall. We walked on the side and noticed the “crap” stopped one door from ours. We had to spend the next ten minutes stopping people from walking in it until housekeeping came. Heck, it was obvious which room as the last bit was right at their door. No kids in that room. The last sea day we participated in the Bottomless Galley Tour which I booked online for twenty percent off. Staff members will be attacking you all week to book this. I guess they get money from each sale. Anyways, Royal will offer twenty percent discount just before you go. We paid twenty something each and got a talk from head chef and a tour of the kitchen which was boring but the meal was excellent. Free, unlimited OJ and Champagne. We got to choose from a menu. I had a wonderful salad and the filet with potatoes and vegetables with a dessert that looked like a swan. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had and better than Chops. Service was excellent. The meal makes the price worth it! We decided to walk off the ship with our luggage. The time was between 645 and 845. We got to the gangway around 645 and there was a long line. I believe they started earlier than 645. Even with the long time we had enough custom agents to move our line quickly. Must of been in line for 15 minutes. Quickly showed my passport and we were at our car in minutes. Very easy to drive out of the garage. We did peak at the suites and I’ve read many reviews that said they just could not go without getting a suite. I could easily fall into that category so I avoid booking that first suite. You would of continued being happy with ice milk had you never taken that first taste of ice cream. That said, the suites we saw just did not seem that great for the money it costs. But everything is relevant. $15,000 to you might not be that big of deal. I could afford that $15,000 but then I’m afraid I might live to the age of 90. I really like the Oasis of the Seas but I like big ships. I like walking. If walking is not your thing then maybe you would like the Grandeur of the Seas better. We enjoyed that ship too. Whatever you choose please allow a few days to unwind when you get back home from your vacation. Having fun for seven days is a bit like working. You are, most likely, going to feel worn out time your head hits your pillow at home. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it fit our schedules and to get away from cold weather for a week. Stayed in Cocoa Beach the night before which I highly suggest. Well rested we shuttled to the cruise port arriving by 10:30 am. We were a group of 5, all Diamond members. Registration went smoothly and after a short wait we were on the ship by 11:20. Our inside cabin was on the 7th floor mid ship and was in a perfect location. Our room attendant did a nice job and our room was clean every day. Did my time dining for the first time and hated it. This was a choice by us and we will not do this option again. RCCL is not to blame, it is just to hectic and noisy with people coming and going at all times. Dining room food was good, especially the appetizers. As said before on these forums why can't people at least put on a pair of pants and golf shirt for dinner. Some people looked like slobs. Ate at the Windjammer a few times and it was good also. It did seem crowded on Sea Days but the staff did a great job of getting tables cleaned off for the next group to sit at. Johnny Rockets was very good also. Giovanni's Table and 150 Central Park were excellent. We don't by souvenirs or do excursions so we use that money for specialty dining. Entertainment was also excellent. Private Stock Band, comedians and Ice Show especially. The diving show was OK. Did not attend Cats. The service was very good. Some bartenders friendlier than others but that is to be expected. They all were nice, just some more than others. Oasis was in very good condition and we marveled at how many people were cleaning at all hours around the ship. From wiping handrails to cleaning tables they did a great job. There is Purell dispensers everywhere for you to use. For Diamond members the lounge was very crowded for Happy hour 4:30 to 8, especially when they open for free drinks. Alot of snobs in attendance who were not patient with the bar staff. The bar staff did an excellent job of getting people served in our opinion. The pool on sea days was very crowded as was the Solarium Pool area for adults. RCCL does not enforce the 30 minute chair unoccupied rule so why post signs and print the rule in the daily compass. Either you have it or you don't. There were people saving spots at 8 am who did'nt arrive at the pool until 10 am. Labadee was nice but we went back to the ship to eat. Cozumel and Falmouth we got off for a short time to look around. In closing we noticed after 19 cruises subtle differences that RCCL has made which for them is cost measure. The only pushy people were the photographers in my opinion. Drink prices are high but again I did not have to purchase them. After discussion we all agreed we like the Freedom and Voyager size better than the Oasis. Personal preference for less people and almost the same amenities. Will be cruising RCCL in the future and highly recommend cruising. Read Less

I now like RCCL and that was love. Just got off Oasis and a little disappointed. Their was five main shows to see. I signed up for each show beforehand. 1. Dreams was canceled due to sickness of one performer. Rescheduled time at 5:15 so went to the show which was in afternoon with the sun setting right in my eyes so now light show with this performance. Missed my dinner time and went to a full Windjammer for dinner. 2. Went to Fly with me just to have it cancelled due to technical difficulty. Cruise director got a lot a boos from that. 3. Headliner show was just ok. A band playing rock songs. 4. Cats I just don't get. I long for the day when their was lots of set changes in the show and it made you feel good when you left. No one feels good leaving the show and everyone is tired of sitting for so long. 5. Frozen. Could not make it due to illness so tried other time to get in and standing room only if in stand by line. Dining. If you don't have an assigned table before you go, Don't go. Only one guy assigned to help get you a table when you get on board and you wait 30 minutes to talk to him just to have him put you in the very back dark part of the dining room. I saw 2 couple on formal night not get a table at all after waiting for 15 minutes. Service is not what it use to be. Flow rider. One is completely down for repair. The one that is open at 8:00 a.m. for professional riders and they get about 3-5 minutes each to ride up to 9:00 a.m. and their was about 9 of them. Now when 9:00 a.m. comes around and its your turn you get in line behind these rider and you get your chance 25 minutes later because they are already in line and do not stop riding. Once you fall twice your time is done. Go away and don't come back. Zip line. Rules are not clear so read the rules for shoes , socks and well just read the rules. Did not do the zip line. I guess if your ship holds 5,400 passengers and you put 6,450 on it your bound to have problems. I just can't see cancelling main events. Their should be back up plans and the shows must go on. One person getting sick should not cancel a show. What if that person is still sick the next day, would you cancel the show again. I am a platinum member and was looking forward to the Oasis class of ship for the first time. I will stick to Freedom class and below. Much easier to get around. I have always chosen RCCL for my first choice in cruising but after this experience I will go with Celebrity next time. In the end I just wish I had gotten what I was promised. Read Less

The brightest and best memory of an outstanding crew member was our always smiling and cheery, Micki, Beverage staff in the Globe & Atlas bar! She had a wonderful outlook and gave us lots of information and advice, especially telling us about the 10 drink card for $79 which we then purchased, plus she told us about Izumi for sushi and sake! Micki was awesome!!! On that same day, we went to Izumi and they gave us a great discount for booking a reservation for later on that same day! And Izumi provided an excellent dining experience (best we had on the ship)! We liked that we could pay for what we ate/drank at Izumi vs. Sabor where they charged a "cover charge" - so we never ate/drank at the large Sabor (only the small circular Sabor tequila bar in the middle of the Boardwalk). One of the Beverage staff there was excellent too, but we do not recall his name. All of the shows we saw were A+ fantastic! Cats was awesome, even though one of the microphone's for a featured song didn't work, but the actor projected is voice the best he could so we could still hear him a little bit. And the Come Fly With Me was excellent -- we loved Oliver and the featured artists that did the high flying aerial work! Amazing!! The Oasis of Dreams show was spectacular and not to be missed! The divers, acrobats, and synchronized swimmers were outstanding, and the gal in the red bathing suit (the star), she was incredible! We loved it! We also really enjoyed the Cats singers and the conductor, when they came out and performed in the other venues on different nights, like in Dazzles and Schooner bar! Super talented and passionate performers! My largest complaint was that there was only ONE ladies public restroom on deck 8 for everyone who eats at the cafe, drinks at the bar there, shops at Tiffany's, or imbibes at Vintage! This was a huge disappointment for that area, plus it was hard to find! Terrible design flaw of the ship! As a party of 6, family and friends, we couldn't always get a table in the main dining room, though after we told the staff, our experience improved later in the week. We thought "My Time Dining" would allow us more flexibility to dine whenever it was convenient for all 6 of us--it did not! So, pick a time and reserve that before your cruise. Don't use "My Time Dining" option. And don't go to the line at the main dining room marked "No reservations" either. Waste of time. I recommended to RC that they add the actual dollar amount (next to the $ sign) on the daily planner guides that come into the staterooms each day, for what activities cost. It was so disappointing not to be able to go to yoga for free each day. Also, after going and finding out the cost, then sometimes you miss something else going on, or lose your family/friends. Also, things like "remember mini-golf or carousel are open/closed during inclement weather)" and also knowing when the "free dining areas are open/closed" would be extremely handy! At least a half dozen times we went to eat somewhere or go to an activity and it was closed. Very sad. Oh and don't go to the Port Shopping lecture. It will take nearly 2 hours out of your day--NOT 30 minutes (as they say it will be). The raffle is at the end, which was the only reason we sat through that ordeal. If you're not planning on spending thousands of dollars for jewelry at the ports of call, this shopping presentation is a big waste of time. Oh, and that free charm bracelet is a JOKE! Mine turned black on the second day of wearing it. Unfortunately, we experienced problems in the Casino, no-smoking was not marked well enough and we had to endure the smoking part just to get through to the no-smoking area, which we prefer due to allergy reasons. One of the "help desk" ladies was not very pleasant either when we needed assistance more than once to get the card read for the machine. And though the situation got resolved, unfortunately we experienced a poor service Beverage staff person in the Schooner bar. No staff should ever say, "not my fault" to any customer. Unacceptable attitude. I'm sure that staff member will be retrained. Read Less

We have been on the Oasis of the Seas 3 times and each time it gets better and better! The staff of the ship goes above and beyond. There is so much to do on the ship and you can do as much or as little as you want at the ports of call. We have taken our kids each time and they enjoy the kids club. My husband and I did the zipline over the ocean in Haiti and it was an amazing experience. We ventured off on our own at the other ports and enjoyed both activities as well (Bamboo Raft on Martha Brae River and Chakanuub Park in Cozumel). My son and I both have Celiac Disease. The wait staff on the ship is very knowledgable about what we can an cannot have. There are several gluten free options on the ship as well. Much appreciated! We have seen small improvements every time we have cruised on the Oasis. The embarkation process has gotten smoother and more enjoyable. On our first couple of cruises, the ship was completely dead and depressing on your last day. That has changed. The only downfall on a ship this big is that it can feel crowded...there were also a lot of whiny kids on this cruise...Overall, though, we have enjoyed each and every trip we have taken on the Oasis of the Seas.
