First Time Cruiser
1-10 of 191 Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas Balcony Cabin Cruise Reviews
We have cruised on Princess, Carnival and one other Royal Caribbean cruise. I chose this cruise and this ship because I wanted to try a mega ship for the experience and I chose a Central Park balcony because no other cruise line offers these types of staterooms.
Embarcation: Easiest embarcation of any cruise we've been on. We were on the ship in record time.
First impression: Wow! Did not ...
The cruise was amazing. The food in the dining room was very good especially the brunch. I didnt feel like I was on a cruise more like I was at the Mall of America. Being an avid Princess cruiser I found myself not knowing what to do. The shows wete great but long. Cats was wonderful..The boardwalk ws plenty of fun always. Loved the Nextcruise office was oen all day. Casino was wonderful.Loved the ...
We chose this cruise because of the Kids Sail Free promo. We spent the night before at a hotel close to the airport, so no worries about bad weather or delayed flights--important, coming from New England. This was our first cruise and I definitely think the ship spoiled us! Embarkation was pretty easy, and they let us on even though we arrived earlier than our allotted time due to the limited ...
Let me start out by saying: We Like RCCL and have booked another with them while on board. We have sailed 25+plus times on CCL and one Disney and one HOLLAND. Holland too old for us. Disney was with a 9 year old and had a blast. CCL is a go to for a family and a nice get away. RCCL is our GOTO and will be for awhile, great dancing and music and food is always a plus.
Oasis: we knew going in ...
We went with this cruise as it was one of the only ones we could make work date wise with what was listed on the casino players free cruise list (first world problems...). Between vouchers we managed to upgrade to a boardwalk balcony room which was lovely.
This is the third oasis class ship we have sailed on and there are aspects of the new refit that I like and others that I’m not such a fan ...
I dont even know where to start so I'll leave it short and not sweet.
We stayed in Fort Lauderdale, rented a car for dropoff in Miami with a free shuttle to the port.
-Took over an hour to find a chair by the pool.
-EVERYWHERE is crowded and bottle necked. 45 min wait for a TACO. Terrible setup.
-The service is poor.
-The balcony room is smaller than what we experienced with ...
Friendly staff. Kudos to RC for exemplary customer service.
Giovanni's. Divine with great waiter.
Central Park. Pristine.
Sorrento's. Delicious antipasto bar.
Activities. Event director passionate about guests enjoying themselves. Fun rumba/yoga classes.
Crowds. Too much waiting; elevators a nightmare.
Sea pass bracelet. Paid for them so we ...
We have sailed royal Caribbean before but it has been a long time since we sailed last. It has been more than 10 years.
Arriving at the port in the late morning could not have been any easier. We pulled up into the parking garage, went to the second level where they stopped us and took our luggage. We then proceeded upwards to find a parking space on board the ship within 20 minutes, including ...
We usually cruise in january. However we didnt know what yeshiva was. It is the kosher jewish spring break. More than half the ship was reserved for this group. That meant that the adults only section and serenity cafe was closed to non jews. The main dining was a disaster as half the ship could only eat special food. That meant people bringing their own plates and silverware and food. Many of the ...
I chose this cruise as a gift to my wife and kids. We had never been on any of the larger cruise ships before and I wanted to see what it was like for future experiences.
The Aqua 80's show was very good and entertaining.
The BBQ restaurant (extra charge) was very good. We ended up eating there most nights.
The private surf lessons were well worth it for my wife and kids. ...
