My wife and 2 kids have Celiac, and thus can not eat gluten or have any cross contamination. We heard Disney and Royal are the two lines to go on if you have that, so having already tried Disney it was time to try Royal. Royals food was MUCH better than Disney in my opinion. I do not have Celiac, so I got to try food that was specially prepared for my family, and the food that was made for the average guest. I read a lot of reviews prior to going on this ship, and saw that gluten-free chicken fingers apparently are impossible to come by. That is UNTRUE. We had it multiple nights and afternoons on the ship ( my 6 and 3 year old liked them ). Ask for Robinson, he will help you out in the general dining room. Gluten free waffles also can be done but has to be preordered. Also we got doughnuts gluten free one morning, but didn’t taste that great. We also did 2 specialty restaurants...Chops and Giovani’s . Both were excellent. Chops had the best filet I’ve ever tasted. We went into the restaurant the day before and found out what is safe for Celiac and what they could make up for us. It was a very easy going experience. My wife felt a little off towards the end of the cruise but we think it was just because of the AMOUNT of food and heavy dairy, but she didn’t get glutened. Both of my kids were good too. The entertainment and overall cruising experience was absolutely wonderful, but just wanted to write a review for all the concerned parents out there with kids that have celiac. If you cruise with Royal at least on this boat you will be fine. Read Less

We had an excellent cruise. We were a little crowded because I had rented a scooter to get from one end of the ship to the other and the scooter had to remain in the room, at all times, when not in use. An accessible room was not available when we booked, so from now on we will only book accessible rooms, and if none are available, we will pick another itinerary. Our cabin steward was excellent and our waiter was exceptional. We didn't go to any of the $ restaurants since the food in the MDR was good and to our liking. We booked an inside balcony overlooking the Boardwalk and thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony and enjoyed watching all the cruisers wander around the Boardwalk. We could see the Aqua Theater from our balcony and enjoyed watching the shows there. The perks that go along with the inside balcony were a treat. . . . Will be on the Harmony next October and are looking forward to exploring another of the Royal Caribbean ships. Read Less

The Oasis of the Seas was amazing. What made it even better though, was most staff. Very friendly, welcoming staff that do everything in their power to help you and to help give you the best time on your vacation. My vacation will never be forgotten and neither will some of the staff. Both me and my girlfriend, had a great time aboard the ship and are definitely looking forward to booking our next cruise the Royal Caribbean once again. Dining service was fantastic and offered a semi-big selection. Staterooms were always kept clean and the attendant I had was beyond friendly and did a more than a fantastic job. Very pleased with the staff, however there were minor issues with a few elevators (skipped floor 6 all the time, and other times the elevator would skip right past our floor). The food in the windjammer could definitely get better as far as adding more flavor to the food. Pasta was undercooked a lot, and sometimes the food was cold or borderline. Pizza parlor on deck 5 was a amazing add on to the ship, however me and my girlfriend caught them undercooking some pizzas a lot of the time. (We only ate it when it was cooked completely) but it was delicious when we did get it! Read Less

My 65th Birthday celebration included my sister and five friends! I use a power wheelchair and had no problems getting on or off the ship! My cabin was completely accessible and I made full use of our private balcony. Dinner was scrumptious! French Onion Soup, steak and the best dark chocolate cake I ever tasted. The staff sang Happy Birthday. Our waiter Norrys was great! He was very attentive and so was Joel the drink server! On our last nightJoel performed magic tricks with napkins and Norrys played the guitar! We booked a different event each nite. I loved the musical Cats. We had facials in the Spa. I sang karaoke and my sister did too! Haiti was great! It was accessible! Lots of places to shop and a buffet for lunch was delicious. Jamaica was paradise! Ken's Wheelchair Tour was wonderful! Komoko Falls was terrific! It was very accessible. Beautiful flowers like Birds of Paradise and Orchids were everywhere. Lots of shops to buy souvenirs but, be careful prices are high. If you show interest but, walk away the price will come down. Kosumel was awesome! A beautiful peninsula with beautiful beaches! Arturo, our taxi driver took us to a wonderful places to shop. Again show interest but, walk away at least once and the price will come down. We ate at a Mexican resturaunt. Delicious food but, watch out for the green hot sauce. Most gringos can't handle it.

The food, activities, shows were incredible! Definitely the best service we’ve ever experienced on a trip and we felt like family. The ship itself is just amazing and there’s always things to do. We had My Time dining every night with no specialty dining which was included and they changed up the menu every night with lots of yummy choices. The Windjammer buffet always had food for everyone to enjoy and always tasted fresh and warm/cold depending on how it should be served, we never had a problem with this! The talent in all of the shows are breathtaking, my family has told me they enjoyed “Come fly with me” the most. The ports were lovely even if you just stay in the area without excursions (Labadee, Falmouth, Cozumel) we are hoping to return to this ship in the future and it was a great first cruise. Our room attendant and waiters were the best and I can’t give enough stars :) Read Less

We had an amazing vacation on the Oasis and while in the future, we would prefer to return to Holland America, we would sail on Oasis again. We spent two days in Cocoa Beach staying at the Residence Inn prior to our cruise. We loved the hotel and enjoyed exploring. We did have some issues returning our rental car at Hertz due to the office closing early without notification, however the office took care of it competently after a nerve wracking night. We enjoyed motorized paddleboats/ kayaking, mini golfing, and sightseeing while in Cocoa Beach. We also had a great key lime pie from the Key Lime Pie company. Embarcation was very stressful and our biggest complaint with the cruise. Staff at the port would not allow us to stay with my handicapped parents through the security line. We were told we could meet them on the other side of security. After waiting in line, we went through security. My parents were nowhere to be seen. They would not allow us to linger in the security area and were told that they had already gone ahead. We progressed to the boarding area, asking multiple times about my parents. We were told they had already boarded the ship. We insisted they would not have boarded without us and asked them to check that their cards had been scanned in. They refused and told us we needed to continue on to the ship. We refused and my husband went back to look for them. He was told he would need to go through security again. At this point 30 minutes had passed. Just before he left the boarding room, he met up with them arriving in the boarding room. They had just left security. Security had put my 80 and 90 year old parents through hell, including searches, removing all labeled medications, etc from their bags, and accusing them of hiding a bomb in their nebulizer which had an md script attached to it. Stressed and exhausted, we finally boarded the ship. We were delayed in boarding at this point, so we decided to go to the Solarium for lunch. We were able to get a table for 6 and the adults enjoyed the lunch. Our two children did not so we did not return. We spent the remainder of the afternoon exploring the ship, swimming, registering the kids for teen club, and unpacking 5 of 6 suitcases. The 6th suitcase was finally found by my husband at 7:30 that night sitting in a hallway on deck 6. We ate dinner in the Main Dining Room that night and met our great servers: IMade and Maryna. They were both wonderful and we ended up cancelling other reservations to eat there every night but one, We loved the meals, although we did get a little bored with broccoli and carrots. The one other night, we ate at Giovanni's. We had a complimentary meal from our travel agent. Great food and the only night we over ate. They said lasagna is now available every night even though it is not on the menu. This was another challenge with seniors. They could not see or hear anything in the restaurants, it was too dark and loud. Breakfasts and lunches at Sabor, Johnny Rockets, and the Windjammer were all fine as long as we ate early. Later in the day, crowds and lines would build and tables for 6 were a challenge. We enjoyed all the entertainment. Our showing of Oasis of Dreams was cancelled and the rescheduled time was during dinner. We made dinner without trouble however, as we saw a shortened show. We were able to see the full version later in the week and it was amazing. My favorite was the skating show. It is amazing that they can do that on ice. We spent many nights in the Jazz club and piano bar. The pools were chilly all week but still crowded on the warmer of the 2 sea days. There was always room in a hot tub. Even going up to the pool deck at 9:30 on the sea, it was impossible to find loungers together. Our teens made friends their first night at Teen club. There were over 1000 teens on the cruise. My two children were upset they divided teen club into two groups. My 15 year old daughter would meet friends outside of the teen club. My 13 year old son, ended up going to teen club multiple times, participating in activities and playing video games. In Labadee, we rented a bungalow. We really enjoyed it. In Falmouth, we walked around the port and shopped and then reboarded the ship. In Cozumel, we went on a great private excursion with Cozumel Cruise Excursions.net. We had a great day and saw a good portion of the islands without crowds. Disembarcation was better than embarcation, however we were again separated from my parents at the the elevators. They again would not allow us to gather to meet at the base of the elevators. This time, my husband insisted on going with my parents and we reconnected by calling on our cell phones. We concluded our vacation with a great Royal Caribbean tour to Kennedy Space Center and airport drop-off. We had a very early departure time, but then sat on the bus for an hour waiting to leave. The tour was great and we made it to the airport on time. MCO is a mess at the ticketing area right now. Overall, we had a great time, but it is a big ship for seniors with difficulty on the elevators for someone in a wheelchair. 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.

The ship amenities, food, staff, service and entertainment was phenomenal. And for all the people on this ship, we never felt crowded. This cruise was our best ever! Ship - Large but relatively fast elevators and never a feeling of being crowded. Incredible neighborhoods to enjoy!! Entertainment - Simply phenomenal! So many shows with unique appeal and talent. Amazing!! Food - best cruise food ever at every level. Kudos to the chefs! Customer Service/Staff - every single staff member was as friendly and helpful as can be! Additional - we traveled with my mother-in-law who is confined to a wheelchair and we had absolutely no problems getting around the ship. Moreover, the staff at every turn treated my mother-in-law and us as we were special kings and queens. They made us feel extra special, to say the least, by taking extraordinary care of us all trip. We all want to book this same cruise again! Read Less

Oasis of the Seas Dec, 2017 Always being intimidated with the size and scores of people on the “mega ship,” after careful consideration and reading countless reviews, we made the plunge and booked our cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. This being our 27 the cruise, over the years we have become accustom to certain expectations within the cruise industry so Oasis of the Seas was being held to an experienced cruisers standard. That being said I won’t bore you with every detail and will only covers the points most cruisers new and experienced may be concerned with. First let me say after reading many reviews, I’m amazed at the some of the ridiculous criticisms stated by many. Simply put, as in life, if one intentionally looks for things to criticize, rest assured, they will find something to complain about. On the other hand, if one chooses to focus on the positive things, life can and will be much better place for everyone and perhaps most importantly the complainer. Oasis of the Seas, like any other ship, has issues and can always improve but overall it is an amazing ship and cruise. Embarkation: Flawless! We arrived at the port at 11:00 and were eating in the Windjammer café by 11:40. I have read many reviews that stated not to waist time looking for a seat in the Windjammer due to over crowding; nonsense! We never had to wait for a table at the Windjammer the whole cruise. There was plenty of seating, never a wait, and always great service. Food was above average but not excellent. One neat thing was everyday they had a new meat at the carving station. (Prime Rib, Pork Loin, Turkey) Ports: Labadee, Jamaica and Cozumel 4 at sea days: Ports were good but we have been there so many times we could offer our own tour service. For the experienced cruisers, island days offer an empty ship with some very good deals on services that you may want to take advantage of. Ship: Spotless, well maintained! Never, ever felt like it was crowded even though there were over 6 thousand passengers aboard. A Couple of times the shopping area was congested but never any worse than any other cruise we have taken. Room: Mid Ship Balcony, 9th floor. Very spacious with more storage than any other ship we have sailed. Cabin steward was excellent, kept room spotless and always polite and out of site. Made sure we tipped him well! Ship Staff: Excellent. Many reviews said Oasis was understaffed and often staff was unfriendly. Absolutely untrue! The staff was very friendly and always willing to help and go the extra mile. They were every-where, yet they stayed in their own lane and never interfered unless summoned. On the other hand, as often as they attempted to help guests, many times I was ashamed of how the guest treated them. Being in the customer service industry for many years it always amazes me how rude and self-centered customers can really be. Often guests would treat cruise staff with disrespect and at times even contempt. This was really noticeable by the Panicle Class passengers who may believe they own the ship and could treat cruise staff and passengers anyway they wanted. Just a note here, they’re not the only ones who paid money for there cruise. One could easily arrive at the conclusion these may be the people who are writing the majority of critical reviews of the Oasis. Again, anyone can find fault with anything if you look hard enough, and Oasis of the Seas is no exception. Ship Activities: Many. There was always something going on aboard the Oasis. You could get as involved or uninvolved as your personal cruising style determined. Cruise Director: Average. With 6,000 passengers aboard the Oasis, one can only imagine how pulled the Cruise Director can be. That being said, I think they could actually use two directors on this size ship. Regardless he did well. Specialty Dining: Excellent! Should you choose a cruise of the Oasis, you must make a reservation at Giovanni’s Table. Believe me you won’t regret it, unbelievable! Specialty Dining Pricing: On the high side but still competitive with other cruise lines. While the prices may be considered a bit high, the service and quality of the food are worth it. After all you are on vacation, treat yourself if you can afford it. Main Dinning Restaurant: Very good! One could easily eat here for the whole cruise and be completely satisfied while saving a bunch of money. Quality of Food and service was very good and really nice to have your waiter call you by name and have your beverage of choice waiting for you when you get there. Bar Service: Great! Read many critical reviews complaining about lack of bar service. While we are not extreme drinkers, the wife and I have a history of getting one drink from every bar on the ship. This cruise was no different, we hit every bar (and there are many) and we never had to wait for more then 5 minutes for service and less than 3 minutes for our drink, with understandable exception of the pool or Solarium. Drink quality was very good. Tip: on day three, Oasis offers a 10-drink package for $80.00, excellent savings as typical mixed drinks go for $13.00-$15.00 per drink. Entertainment: Very Good. Was not impressed with Cats, but shows are subjective to ones personal preferences. Comedians were very good, just be a bit cautious with underage children, and language can be a bit forward. Bands were really good. DE-embarkation: Perfect, flawless. We choose to walk off the ship rather than waiting for our assigned departure time. We arrived at the de-embarkation point (Main Lobby) at 5:45 A.M. (make sure you get there early as 600 people choose this option making for quite a line). Despite the line, it was the smoothest of any ship we were on. Simply put Oasis has got this right! We were back at our hotel and on the road home by 7:10 a.m. As I shared from the beginning, the wife and I were very apprehensive a sailing on a mega ship with over 6,000 passengers. Now on the other side, I am sold out on the Oasis of the Seas. It never felt crowded or congested, in fact, we have sailed on many smaller RCCL ships with fewer passengers that felt much more crowded than the Oasis. My wife and I are looking forward to sailing on RCCL Oasis class ships again. I know if you give it a chance you also will be very pleasantly surprised! Read Less

This ship was on my wife's bucket list. If I had to sum up This cruise in one word it would be Outstanding !!!!!!!!!. The first night at dinner which was 3 days before our anniversary we were treated to champagne to and chocolate covered strawberrys. Every night at dinner the staff would recognize our anniversary. On our anniversary night we went to Chops Grille and had a fabulous meal which included a cheesecake presented by staff and a song by waiters including the chef. My wife and I are not big drinkers so we did not purchase the drink package although a good deal for those who do. We were offered a special discount coupon by a bartender in Central Park for 10 drinks for $93 including tips. We enjoyed this cruise so much we booked it again for next year at the same time onboard and received $400 onboard credit. Thank you RCCL for an amazing time and a memory forever Read Less

Third time on the Oasis and never disappointed with the experience. The ship is still in excellent condition throughout. Pedro, our balcony cabin steward did an exceptional job at looking after us. Eat all our evening meals in the main dining room and were superbly looked after by Ronaldo and Benny. Read a lot about the quality of the foot not being of a high standard, however, I can report that that was not the case. The catering staff were on the ball and the quality was 5 star. The curries were exceptional. As far as excursions, we did the Falls and caves trip in Jamaica and were delighted with the experience. Coming from the UK driving on the left is normal, however, for those of you who have not had the experience make sure that you get a front row seat, you will not be disappointed. Also booked with Alex online at "thisiscozumel" for a day trip with minibus and English speaking driver/guide Arturo. Had an excellent cultural trip round the island with two handicap accessible excursions and lunch at a beautiful beach cafe. The cafe food was average but the view and the beach were spectacular. Well worth the money and highly recommended. Roll on the next cruise with RCCL. Read Less

My travel agent recommended it...the ship was beautiful. i feel like rccl charges for too many things. i feel like after you pay for a cruise, the activities, etc. Should be free. not enough entertainment around the pool area. i loved the boardwalk! Our cabin steward and waiters where wonderful. the cabin was nice but not enough storage space. no counter space in bathroom. not a big selection of desserts to choose from plus the ones that they had was not very good. the entertainment was okay, but it seem like it repeated itself. cats really got on my nerves, you need to change that show, everyone was talking about how bad that show was. the ice skating show was wonderful! I probably would go again with friends and family. hurricane irma messed this trip up, i had booked a boardwalk balcony with a free drink package, could not get the same when we rebooked in november, rccl would not even give me my amenties that i lost in september. that put a sour taste in my mouth for royal caribbean.....

The Oasis line has many neighborhoods to enjoy. Large ship. Food service was excellent. I love that the ship is large enough to house over 5K guests. And could not belive that in 20 mins I was off the boat on discharge day. Their disembarkment system is brillint. There we two couples - two wheelchairs - all seniors. Loved the fine dining exeperience, the shows, the dancing, the sales, and most of all we loved the ports. Labadee and Cozumel were perfection and what we all come to love about crusing. Also, and this was a biggie for me. The lady that handed out hand santitizer just before entering the dining room. Truly a thoughtful care for their customers. And the Windjammer's international food selection. Every night I could eat around the world. How very thoughtful. I will definitely be back to this boat. Cant go wrong for the money. Read Less

We finally decided to pull the trigger on an Oasis class ship. Last year we sailed on the Freedom and found that though its much larger than the ships we normally cruise that it wasn't as daunting a prospect as thought it might be. On Oasis, there's a LOT of stuff to do and I think the ship is just too dang big! We have a fairly set routine and having all those other choices is nice or maybe is nice for certain groups of people but for us they had a lot of unsused choices. I think there are a lot of pluses, the food was great and better than freedom. Dining room service was better too. On the main street thing the pizza and café promenade are fantasic! That whole area works as intended I think. In the evenings this was the most busy part of the ship so getting from one end to the other a challenge. Everybody was acting in good spirits though which greatly helps. Lots of people have asked us about lines and crowds. Most times it didn't seem to be a long wait for anything. The ship does have a lot of hiddenaway spaces and knowing where they are or figuring it out early in the cruise really helps. I had a scooter rented for my wife and I and the first night I got up about 4 am and toured the ship myself to find al the right kind of places for the rest of the cruise. This really helped on down the road and generally kept us from getting turned around. ( which only happened about one time! ) The Casino area is what threw us off a couple times. On most ships the casino can be defined as being in one area, fore, aft or midship. Royals decplanning and the two elevator deal always throws us Carnival peeps off a bit. ( Carnival generally has three elevator lobbies on its ships ) Anyway, the casino is so huge, you get off the aft elevators and either go straight in or wind your way round half of it via a long curving hallway. Once in there, like most casinos you can get turned around several times. Then you pop out thinking I'm in place X so you pop onto the elevator and head up to deck 5. Instantly you feel the need to stroll the avenure to the other end where you cabin is....... or ought to be..... then DANG IT! yer at the wrong end of the ship!!! This only happens when you are most tired! We did have a great time, the drawback of having to book your entertainment is a big of a drag, We booked most shows and comedy months in advance and it kind of sucks that you lose all your spontaneity by having to plan out your whole cruise like that! In the end I think people book a lot of stuff and forget or decide to blow off half of it. We booked in advance only the 2nd day comedy, and main show headliners and a water show. A few days later we added in Cats on the last sea day for a matinee showing. Once on board I thought you'd get show tix ( maybe like shore excursion reminders or tix you may be used to on other cruise lines ). Well that didn't happen and for some the interactive TV is easy to use and for some it isn't but it would have your schedule on it if you can find it! We did end up getting consfused and missing the water show! We weren't able to rebook it for later in the cruise of course we could maybe go get in line. It all worked out in the end because there was one other show we had skipped booking earlier and we decided to take in the late show of that late in the cruise and it was GREAT! Overall like I said we had a great time but I miss the intimacy of a smaller ship and getting to know and bump into other passengers as the cruise goes along. WE have made some great cruising buddies over the years here on cruise critic! You seldom see anyone twice on the big ships like this. I think the O class will not be our first or second choice in the future but if the right deal comes along..... Read Less

The ship was impressive. Overall we had a great time and was impressed with the ship. Embarking with a handicapped person could have been handled better but debarkation was great. The ship gave you plenty to do. The ports were wonderful and love that there was no tendering. Sometimes the ship felt crowded like the first night at dinner in the main dining room while everyone found there tables but that cleared up. Our waiters were great and didn't know what to do for us. Food was hit or miss, some thing average (don't order steak medium well) but my sole one night and lamb chops another were great. We also loved lobster night. The shows were good and just the right length (Cats was longer). We loved the aqua show. What more can I say? We loved the experience. Can't wait to cruise again. this was our first cruise on Royal Caribbean. Can't wait to cruise again. Read Less

My family of 4 sailed on the Oasis of the Seas departing Oct 8, 2017 from Port Canaveral. 2 adults, 2 teenagers. the original itinerary was Eastern Caribbean but changes were made due to Hurricane Irma. We were St. Maartin - San Juan - Labadie and changed to Nassau - Cozumel - Costa Maya. I was very impressed with the communication from Royal Caribbean regarding all the changes. Emails were timely and the website had updated information everyday at 2pm thru all the multiple hurricanes. Our planned shore excursions were automatically refunded and information about the new ports and shore excursions were available within 1-2 days after announcing the changes. Due to an accident 6 weeks before sailing I needed to change my cabin to an accessible cabin and rent a mobility scooter. I called RCCL and they were able to change my cabin without extra payment to an accessible cabin which really fit our needs. I rented a mobility scooter from the Special Needs Group, a company that was recommended on RCCL website. The scooter was waiting in my cabin when I arrived and it performed flawlessly all week. I even took it off the ship in Nassau and explored the nearby areas. The Oasis has plenty of room to accommodate a scooter, and since I could walk a little bit, I would park the scooter usually in the stairwell/elevator hallways or over on the side of the deck and walk a short distance to my destination. Crew members and passengers alike were very helpful. I would recommend that if you have a mobility scooter or wheelchair to try to use the forward elevators as those were not as crowded as the aft elevators. It was no problem to eat in the main dining room, then scooter to the forward elevators to go to my deck. Be aware that Deck 6 does not go all the way across without going thru the stateroom hallway. I often used Deck 16 and Deck 5 to get from one side to another. Deck 15 (pool deck) was very crowded. We had booked a Refreshment beverage package for me, a Soda and 1 device Voom Wireless package for my husband, a soda package for 1 teen, and pre-purchased 2 of the Evian liter cases for the other teen who only likes water. on Day 2 I had not used the refreshment package at all except for 1 filling of soda at the Coke Freestyle machine. I went to guest services and had them reduce my package to the soda package only. This was handled very well and we saw the credit to our account the next day. For my family we could have gotten away with only the Soda and 1 device Voom wireless, and 1 soda package and 1 case of the Evian bottles. I didn't drink enough soda to make it worthwhile. Sodas cost $3.00 which means you need to drink more than 3 a day to make it worthwhile. I didn't average that for sure. Make sure you look at the prices of drinks and consider what you really drink a day before purchasing a beverage package. I'm a coffee drinker and I found the free coffee available and tasted just fine. I had a latte once for $4.00. There was a Starbucks kiosk and I used my Starbucks app to pay for the one time I had to have a Pumpkin Spice Latte. The Starbucks kiosk can also take your ship card and be billed to your onboard account. My teenager figured that out on Day 4 of the cruise and I think he ate them out of their chocolate chip cookies! The Voom Wireless worked great! it really was a lifesaver and I'm glad we had the 1 device package. Having 2 teenagers who are used to internet and social media, they were able to wean from it a bit, but then negotiate an hour of use here and there to post pics and catch up with friends. My husband needed access to keep touch at work. It was easy to connect to (we all have iPhones/iPads) and easy to switch devices. It was nice to have to research the ports of call before we got there...actions we are used to being able to do. I think the Soda and 1 Device Voom cost only $14 a day in a pre-cruise special and it was worth it for us. If you don't get the Voom wireless make sure you turn all your devices to Airplane mode once the ship departs so you are not charged international roaming charges! We not only turned to Airplane mode, but turned off cellular on our phones just in case. We did not eat in any of the extra charge restaurants except for Johnny Rockets. My hubby got to the free breakfast there once and loved it. My teen and I ate there once for dinner. Food was great and definitely tasted like a Johnny Rockets! they don't have their full menu, we were disappointed to not find chicken fingers on the menu. in fact the only place we found chicken fingers was the room service menu. We ate breakfasts typically in the Windjammer Buffet, but then discovered that the Solarium had a smaller version of the Windjammer Buffet. Same basic food and closer to us. Also the Wipeout café on Deck 15 had a smaller buffet set up as well. I wanted to try the MDR breakfasts but never got up in time. We did the free room service for continental bfast once. Loved having coffee delivered to my room but the rest of the pastries were nothing special. The donuts...a big thumbs down. We only did it once. Lunches were scattered all over with each of us finding what we wanted. I had lunch 1 time in the American Café (MDR) and it was very good! The teens loved the Sorrentos pizza, "free pizza whenever we want it? to 3am?!" and I didn't notice until the last day that the pizza place had an antipasto bar to the side of where you pick up the pizza slices. Also, took me a few days to realize other good places for lunch: Promenade café had sandwiches, Park Café on Deck 8 had a nice salad bar and panini, and the Vitality café in the Spa had the best turkey sandwich and banana bread! all the food was free and they had the free water, tea, iced tea, lemonade, coffee in each of these places as well. Dinner time was varied for us each night. We dined en suite two nights with room service (food free but a $7.95 service charge for delivery). We enjoyed the food and the chocolate chip cookies were yummy. We ordered off our TV in the room and it took about 45 min for it to come. We ate in the MDR Silk 3 nights. It was very nice and our waiter and staff was very attentive. I enjoyed the fresh fish selections each night mostly because I can't cook fish very well! My hubby had the regular steak (not the upcharge steak) and said it was fine, but not great. Only 1 teen came with us and she liked the chicken and the steak as well. Briefly about the ports: Nassau was...Nassau. The only reason we went off the ship was for the kids who hadn't been there in 6 years. They have redone the area right off the pier and it was nice to see that. But really...we were all about the free wifi at the Dunkin Donuts. I don't need to get off a ship in Nassau again. Cozumel was very lovely! We had the Snuba excursion and it was very nice. I didn't partake but was able to just pay $10 for transportation and go with them so I did't have to pay the full $89. Hubby and kids had a great time and wish they had more time underwater. The people were very nice, instructions were clear, they had practice time and were very reassuring. I hung out on the shore at a nice little restaurant and had the best fish tacos there! and the guacamole was outstanding! We also hung out at the jimmy buffett margaritaville that is just off the pier. Very fun atmosphere and bought souvieners there. It was cloudy that day and started to rain in the afternoon so we didn't spend much time. Costa Maya. Only my husband got off the ship to go visit a Mayan Ruin on an excursion. He decided he wanted to do that last minute and just went looking for an excursion on the pier. He found one that was associated with the ship that had room. Paid around $90 (they used his ship card!) and had an air-conditioned bus ride to the ruins, a very nice tour, and bus ride back. he loved it! Costa Maya was built literally for cruise ship passengers and we weren't in the mood for shopping so we stayed on board and enjoyed the ship. Entertainment Cats was...Cats. Great dancing and singing but unfortunately its...Cats. the performers and production quality was very good, but why a tired 70's dated show... the other Oasis class ships have Grease and Hairspray I think. Cats is just not a relevant show anymore. Saw the Ice Show which was fine. The skaters were good, but a little sloppy. But we enjoyed it. They had a break in the middle with an Ukrainian Lady doing Sand Art telling the story of the Princess and the Pea. it was breathtaking! Go to see her. I love comedy and we went to the Adult Comedy show. I laughed so hard I almost couldn't catch my breath! Both performers also did "family" shows on Saturday night and I enjoyed their cleaner act as well. The jazz lounge is very nice and the jazz band is terrific! My hubby was impressed and he's a drummer. Overall we enjoyed our vacation on the Oasis of the Seas. I will sail with Royal Caribbean again. Read Less

Ship: Amazing... Central Park, Aqua Theater, Boardwalk all stood out to me! Cabin: Our room was way better than we expected. We were located at the front of the ship and it made for an amazing view at night and early morning. Bigger than we expected so that was definitely a plus. Dining: Food is great. Variety is probably what stands out the most. Definitely purchase a dining package for access to the signature restaurants as they have the best food and the staff is a step above the main dining halls. Even though the main dining hall staff was amazing as well. Entertainment & Activities: A ton of things to do. This is where I would give the only knock on my cruise experience. We wanted a few more night time options that catered to a younger married couple with no kids. Better DJ's would be nice in the nightclub and more dance parties. The first ship we went on did things to get people up and comfortable with each other through conga lines, soul train lines and dance competitions. This one did not. Majority of the night time activities seemed to be catered to older people or families. Service: Top Notch. This is a bigger ship so there is a little drop in service across the entire ship from the smaller ships we've been on. Overall, everyone is polite, friendly and helpful. Bartenders seemed to be the biggest area for improvement from my opinion. Ports & Shore Excursions: There is a lot to choose from so for that reason alone you really couldn't ask for much more. The beach chair and cabana options are pretty pricy, but that's relative to how much you value laying on the beach. Would I do it again? Yes, we've already discussed cruising again. Read Less

Stayed at a nearby hotel the day before the cruise that was 3 minutes away to be sure I didn't miss checking in one time. The embarkation and disembarkation well organized and smooth. The curtsey wheel chair was great if you where having problems with embarkation and staff very good with people with disabilities I almost forgot I was on a shep. The sail felt like I was on land. Ship is huge, beautiful and safe. Cabin very clean and well kept. The attendants were prompt with any service I needed. An elegant 5 star dinning experience in the main dinning room and very accommodating. Wonderful variety of entertainment and activities. The service was prompt and friendly as a whole. Shore excursions were exciting but need to emphasize more on disability access. Even though I didn't travel with children I saw many families and children thoroughly enjoying the activities. My favorites were the shows, clubs, dancing and music. I am looking forward to my next cruise. Read Less

Embarkation: We stayed at Residence Inn Cape Canaveral Cocoa Beach in a one bedroom, two bed suite. The room had plenty of space and included a kitchen, dining table and desk. The hotel was close to the port and conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. We parked at Park Port Canaveral, which had a deal if you paid online at time of booking. Once you get to Park Port Canaveral they handle your luggage from there and have a shuttle to and from port. Awesome! Embarkation probably would have been pretty fast if it weren’t for some personal issues with check-in. We had priority boarding and everything on the cruise line side was running smoothly. Accommodations: We stayed in a handicap accessible junior suite. It had almost as much room as a grand suite without all the furniture. We were able to park the scooter in front of the adjoining room door since we were not using that door. The bathroom was spacious, but had less storage space than a regular junior suite in order to accommodate entry of a wheel chair, if needed. A fold down seat was located in the shower, but it was hard to pull down in place for use. There were a good number of hooks on the back of the door and L’Occitane travel sized soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner. There was an outlet for shavers only in the back wall of one of the open shelves. The room itself had a long desk/vanity area with lots of storage shelves, a tv and refrigerator. The refrigerator was empty already when we got onboard, so there was no need to request that it be emptied. Most of the electrical outlets were along the wall between the vanity mirror and desk making it hard to fit some plugs into those outlets. Another outlet was available beside the bed that most plugs could fit in. There was a full-length mirror in the corner between the desk/shelves and balcony windows. The room contained two twin beds, a couch that converted to about the size of two twin beds, two chairs and a small coffee table. There was also a nice sized walk-in closet. There was no curtain to separate the sofa area from the bed. The balcony was handicap accessible with a piece that dropped into place to allow for wheel chair access. There was one table and two chairs (one reclining) on the balcony. We requested a third chair, since there were three of us and another chair was provided. Overall, the room was the perfect size for three people and I’m glad it was bigger than a standard junior suite. Though it didn’t stop me from having very restful nights, there was noise from the deck above throughout the night. It sounded like deck chairs scrapping against the deck, but I’m not sure exactly where the sounds were coming from. The room looked like it was below the children’s water play area on the deck plans, but I’m sure children weren’t out there all night and it doesn’t take all night to clean the area. Dining: We mainly ate breakfast in the American Icon Grill. All the breakfast food I tried there was really good. They even had a buffet set-up there, except for on departure day. We ate in the Windjammer twice for breakfast. It was crowded and there were lines to get into the buffet, but the food was very good there as well. When we ate lunch (breakfast was usually pretty filling, so we skipped lunch some days) we ate at different venues around the ship. Pizza at Sorrento’s on the Promenade deck was okay. The pizza was greasy and I didn’t care for the cheese. The famous kummelweck sandwich in Park Café in Central Park was just okay as well. I was expecting the sandwich to have a lot more flavor. The hot dog with peppers and onions at the Dog House on the Boardwalk was excellent and the cole slaw was different and good. I can’t believe they charged me $3.50 for a can of soda though, ridiculous! Soft serve ice cream and cones were available in Wipe-out Café and on the pool deck; however, I just saw vanilla, chocolate and vanilla/chocolate swirl, no strawberry. Ice cream by the scoop was available in the Windjammer and main dining rooms. (Yes, one day an ice cream cone was my lunch. Don’t judge!) For the most part, we ate dinner in the main dining room. One night we ate in Chops Grille in Central Park and another night we ate in the Coastal Kitchen. The food in the dining room was very good and the waiters went out of their way to make the dining experience memorable. Food in the Coastal Kitchen was okay. The punch available there is good. The waiters did their jobs, but the warmth, friendliness and attention to detail that was displayed in the main dining room was sorely lacking in the Coastal Kitchen. Maybe it was because we didn’t eat there every night? The food in Chops Grille ranged from okay to excellent. The fillet mignon was okay. The crab cake and sides were excellent. The wedge salad had too much of a wedge, but was good. Onboard Activities: It’s true. It’s hard to do every activity onboard this ship and you probably won’t enjoy your vacation if you try. I was able to zip line and climb the rock climbing wall. The lines for these two activities weren’t bad and the staff were extremely helpful. I even failed to stop by the activities desk to get my Sea Pass card punched and a member of the zip line staff checked to make sure I signed my waivers online right then and there and had the card punched. They made good use of their mobile iPad devices. The rock climbing staff were very attentive, motivated and each one wanted to know if I had a good time. I tried to do ice skating on next to the last day, but I showed up to sign-up for the next time available and they wouldn’t let me sign-up. I was told to come back at 4:15 pm to sign-up for the 4:30 pm time slot. I wasn’t about to do that. At 4:15 there would be a huge line and I was there at about 2 pm to sign-up for the 2:30, which was full, so I should have been able to sign-up then. After that fiasco, I decided it was best not to do anything I had to stand in line for in order to keep my peace. That was the best decision I made that day. My vacation remained peaceful and relaxing even though I missed the ice skating and stand-up surf boarding. I’m going to lump the photos in with onboard activities because it definitely sucked up a lot of our time. We purchased the all-inclusive prints package online. There was confusion about what all the package entailed. I thought it included both print and digital, but was told onboard at first that it was just digital, then later we were told it was just prints. Okay! I told them the all-inclusive wording was misleading and they should change it to say “just prints” or “prints only.” Either way nothing was set-up to automatically ensure we received what we paid for. We had to check the rows of prints for our photos, if they weren’t there we had to order them through the kiosks. The kiosks’ touch-screens didn’t work well and the staff had to back track and credit us the charges automatically made by ordering through the kiosks. This was totally inefficient and below Royal Caribbean’s standards. They need to rethink the third-party vendor the photos were farmed out to. Given my past two experiences with photos on cruise ships, I’m thinking it’s best to bring your own camera and get people to help you take group photos. This is a shame because we use to spend most of our money on photos and my Mom used to love going and finding our photos and cutting a deal for all the prints. Well, change is constant. Excursions: The ports of call were Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico. We left out of Port Canaveral. While in Port Canaveral we stopped at Ron Jon’s and another souvenir shop. Ron Jon’s was expensive even with our 15% off coupon, but has such nice stuff. I’ve been there twice and still haven’t seen everything. I got a beach cabana in Labadee at Columbus Cove and bought a waterslide pass. The cabana was nice and provided shade. It came with two mat floats, a cooler of Evian bottled water and three beach towels. The waterslide wasn’t very fast, but it was fun. Overall, the beach cabana and Labadee were relaxing. I received a Swedish massage at the ship’s spa while in Falmouth. (Most cruise lines offer spa deals when the ship’s in-port.) I only left the ship to do a little window shopping. The spa relaxation area was nice and relaxing. The massage was excellent for a cruise ship massage. Again, this was another relaxing day. In Cozumel, we went to Playa Mia and had a great time. This excursion really tired me out, but it could be as relaxing or as active as you wanted it to be. We chilled in the pool, raced down the twin waterslides, enjoyed a mat floaty, swam out and did the water float obstacle course and finally I went on a solo kayak ride. Now, you see why I was so tired. Playa Mia was clean, not crowded and had lots of activities included in the admission. Note, I did not get the Deluxe Beach Break, which included open bar, food and apparently beach umbrellas. Debarkation: Getting off the ship was pretty orderly. There was coffee and pastries in the debarkation lounge. (I got food to go at the American Icon Grill and ate it in the lounge.) I think our debarkation number was called before it was scheduled, so the process went fast. A porter helped us grab our luggage and got us out to the Park Port Canaveral shuttle in no time. Park Port Canaveral loaded up our luggage and us and got us over to our vehicles. We were souvenir shopping our way to the train station by 11 am. Overall, Royal Caribbean provides a great cruise experience. They do need to address the long lines at certain venues, any policies that exacerbate those lines and/or creates them and the photo memories experience. Also, the junior suites need to come with more amenities given their price. The suite booking did come with a bottle of wine, pre-paid gratuities for two, access to Coastal Kitchen for dinner and free dinner for two at a specialty restaurant. But, how much of that was the booking and not just the suite I don’t know. The only things listed as amenities for the junior suite are dinners at Coastal Kitchen and L’Occitane amenities. (I hate to break it to um, but I can get my own L’Occitane amenities at TJ Maxx.) They also took away the bottles of water as an amenity??? Comparing the price to an inside cabin on a luxury cruise ship, the inside cabin comes with much more amenities (free unlimited internet and free shore excursions, free internet, free house beverages or onboard credit). But, given everything that went well, Royal Caribbean provided a great experience. Read Less

The staff was impeccable, friendly and diligent. The ship was huge, beautiful, well maintained and user friendly for the disabled, The cabins were clean, relatively spacious and comfortable. Vapers and smokers welcome with minimal restrictions. Had plenty of diverse and enjoyable activities for all ages from swimming to casinos to dance clubs to card game rooms to golf and rock climbing and special decks of additional activities for teens and young ones. The food was also plentiful, diverse options with something for everyone regardless of diet, preferences and the food was very good. Great shows and other scheduled events. The excursions were great with gorgeous beaches, good food and lots of shopping and activities. Do purchase a drink package for soda or alcoholic package because drink prices are higher than you may expect if you are taking your first cruise.

I absolutely love this ship! I have cruised many times on Carnival and Royal but I am hooked on Royal Caribbean's Oasis Class. My husband booked us on the Harmony while we on the Oasis. Excellent cruise for all types of people. The crew was excellent and the food was outstanding! This was just what the doctor ordered for my husband and I. Sun , fun, and relaxation. Th adult solarium is a great place to mingle, eat, sun bathe, and cuddle with your partner. We had lunch and dinner in the Bistro and the food was delicious. In fact we prefer the Bistro over the formal dining room for a more intimate experience. Central Park is our favorite place. We were regulars at the Park Cafe and Rising Tides Bar! The Boardwalk was good too! Overall the ship had lots of nice places to eat that did not cost extra and the drink package is a must! Read Less

Some of the quickest procedures for getting on AND off the ship. I've never experienced such a speedy customs and luggage processing! Being disabled, such a large ship was tedious and tiresome, but made all worthwhile by the friendly, helpful staff, activities, accessibility, and food/drinks! We stopped at Labadee, Falmouth, and Cozumel. While Labadee was the most beautiful island I've ever seen, the people in the artisan shops were so pushy, I was unable to actually shop and left with no souvenirs. Falmouth, Jamaica was gorgeous and the shops were amazing!! Prices for transportation was very high, so I did not explore the island, but th3e shops were amazing and the people friendly, fun, and helpful. Cozumel, Mexico was where I spent the majority of my money. I went no further than the port area shops, but the people were so amazing, selection at shops was unbelievable, costs great, and free taste testing of local foods/drinks. With all of this, and SO MANY things to do at the port shops, I spent all day on shore and had a highly entertaining and enjoyable time. The cruise ship is beautiful, maintained clean and organized, and the staff unbelievably helpful, friendly, and fun to be around. Although it was my first cruise, I do not believe I ever need to try other cruise lines! This was the best experience, hands-down, I have ever had and I will ONLY sail with Royal! Read Less

Family picked for us -50th anniversary Activities- on ship were awesome! Dude variety for all adults and children Service-excellent porter, rising tide staff, americana icon dining staff excellent our table was (216) Dazzles was excellent staff Port & shore excursions- most were good but there were a few things I would recommend to Royal Caribbean... Efficiency of safety on Haiti -- life jackets were of only two sizes... small youth and large adult ... For crisis have a car mask with team members who our lifeguards and beach monitors -- plus there are new ways to retrieve individuals in crisis from water even emergency flat rafts that will immediately fill with air once under a water victim make for faster removal from water for CPR and other regency. Staff should be on look out of moreqthen one victim others could be in shock (especially the other family member) At Falmouth - our excursion was awesome and ppl great but we were suppose to get a lunch and cocktail ... much was not given and neither was water. I did not bring cash so thank goes to a fellow passenger that spouted us water and we just waited until we got back on ship to eat. Several ppl were without food or drink due to not bringing cash since it was suppose to be included. Several wished we had more time. (organization prior to arriving at excursion location was very disorganized). However best day ever on getting to be up close to a dolphin. Cozmeal- great Mayan ruins but wish we had more time to even get to the beach. it was three hours out to location 2 hours there and 3 hours back with very little amount of time to get to ship ...but our guides were amazing! Bus stunk bad in the back of bus several ppl complained. Poor babies went on trip that was a long ride for them especially for changing times and extra. Travel to embarkation port- travel time was good just wish we had longer maybe even an hour and 1/2 longer in some locations. Cabin-excellent cabin wish i had access to a fan would have even rented one. :) Our Porter was awesome!!! Dining-Waiters were amazing and so was food! Wished some were open even later and that popcorn was easier to get ... :) Children's clubs- Was great --I was proud of the support Oasis of the Seas offered to families with autism. My heart was happy to learn about the Autism support staff. Entertainment- Frozen in Time was captivating, Come Fly with Me -breath taking, Aqua theatre was extraordinarily death defining and amazing, Music was fantastic! and watching CATS "oh my" cried I loved it so much would watch again!!

We loved our cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. Central Park makes you feel like you are not even on a ship. The activities keep you busy for the entire week. The staff is the best!! If looking for a great ship, pick Oasis of the Seas...if looking for a great cruise line, pick Royal Caribbean!!! For a large ship, embarkation and disembarkation went very smooth. The crew and staff at Port Canaveral are very knowledgeable and make the entire process easy. Be sure to sign up to see all the shows, we saw all of them and were not disappointed. If you want the "full aqua experience" at the aqua shows, sit down low in the aqua theater, you will feel like you are right there in the water with them.
