Oasis spoiled these first-time cruisers! Some downsides though. Details below...

|

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 ...

Great ship

We departed in Miami, and the process was so smooth. If you use Uber I suggest to watch the route the driver is taking, we had a driver that tried to take a different route to port and it cost us triple the amount, ...

Perfect!

We were invited as guests of our son and his wife on this cruise. We have sailed RCI in the past (platinum members) and have always had a good experience. This cruise, aboard the Oasis, was the BEST! We are ...

Mind blowing in some areas, dissapointing in others

All in all, this a great ship with lots to do. For the most part they've done a great job spreading out the crowds, however, there are few areas where the huge number of passengers becomes a big problem. I will ...

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 ...

Ringing in the New Year on a really big ship

I generally dislike larger ships, but we were planning a multi-generational cruise for the holidays, and the itinerary worked with our dates. We were a total of 11 people, ages 13-75, and booked 3 Grand Suites. ...
