There are many cruise lines. We have cruised, NCL and Disney, but always wanted to see the Oasis of the Seas. OK..we've seen it. Although the ship has some pretty cool things, Central Park, a carousel at The Boardwalk and a good Promenade, I have never seen a ship that went so far out of its way to pretend it WASN'T at sea. The ship lacked areas at which guests could participate in...whatever... and enjoy the sea as well. (The exception was the pool deck.) There was a good variety of restaurants, but as far as quality, only Park 150 and Vintages stood out, although Izumi was very good. The talent for the evening shows was, by far, the best we have ever experienced on a cruise, although Cats, was only performed the first night due to illness, so we cannot comment on that. The last day/night, a show was put together and performed by four Cats' cast members and it was amazing, leaving us saddened that we were not able to see the musical. Daytime activities were few and disappointing, an observation with which a couple who were Pinnacle Members, concurred. Quite a few crew members seemed unhappy and unenthusiastic to be there. The ship needs to work on this. Another thing on which Royal Caribbean should ponder, the ship is in need of an overhaul...it's time for a bit of shipyard time to paint, remove rust and lubricate balcony sliders whose opening/closing sound could wake the dead. When this overhaul takes place I would suggest changing the tile in the areas that open to the open spaces of Centra Park and The Boardwalk, tiles were incredibly slippery due to humidity and the industrial fans that were placed to reduce this issue gave a less than elegant perception of the areas. The dust that had gathered on the silk greenery that could be seen through windows while drinking/dining at Central Park, had a thick fuzzy look to them...hard areas to reach, but again, lessening the feel of something being taken care of. Oasis of the Seas was nice...but we will not return, preferring the quality, service and enthusiasm on Norwegian. Read Less

This was our 7th RCCL cruise and did not live up to the expectations of the previous ones. Although dinner was fantastic every night breakfast and lunch in the dining room and Windjammer were awful, from mediocre service to cold, tasteless food. We were treated very rudely by the staff that seats you for My Time dining. Once we told them we would prefer not to sit with young children our request to be seated at a large table was denied and we were seated at a table for 2 for the entire cruise. We were shocked to find most services that had previously been included now required a surcharge, such as delivery charge to bring hot breakfast for room service ($7.95), etc. A $25.00 charge if you lose your towel, etc. You cannot not even get a glass of ice tea anymore once the main dining areas close unless you purchase the soft drink package. If you are a couple looking for a getaway be prepared because this is more a family ship, a great deal of kids on board and up until all hours. Our cruise had some heavy duty smokers as well and even on the top deck the smell of smoke hits you when the doors open. Another disappointment came as Emerald Class Crown and Anchor members, very few and far between benefits (some buy one, get one and delivery of (4) cookies one night and strawberries another. No captains parties at all.) We had previously been on Labadee and it had been a charming laid back beach experience. They have now built it up to more of a water park. Beware; several cruisers complained they did the zip line excursion over the water, charged $100.00 for the excursion, and it lasted less then 10 minutes. Also, make sure you reserve all your shows well in advance because it is very difficult to get a reservation once you are on board. It is a beautiful ship, very large and you will find plenty to do. We also enjoyed, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and Labadee (you do have to walk a distance to get to a beach that you have not paid for). I will choose a different ship next time........ Read Less

You have to make reservations for the shows. The show CAT was canceled on us TWICE. One night we had NO show. The other was a put togther show.You have to pay for the sauna on this ship.The food was great as always. The staff in the main dining room were great also in the other places. We will go on more Royal Caribbean again but will look for another ship. So far the Freedom is the best. We were in room 3817 and the staff was great. The entertainment staff and the cruise director were good. He was funny and entertaining. We liked the water show the best. The port in San Juan was not that great. We would like to go to St. Thomas better. There is more to do in St. Thomas. St. Martin is great with lots to do and see. We like the beaches in both St Thomas and St. Martin.So if you want to go to the beaches then go to these ports. Read Less

The staff, entertainment, our cabin and food were really great. I liked the different neighbor hoods I have always went with RCI because of the adult only swim area, An area you could go and just relax, sit in the shade and read a book, take a nap, sit in whirl pool, take a dip in the nice size pool or lay in the sun to get a tan. On the Oasis the Adult area is all in the sun no shade at at, except in some chairs you couldn't loung in. All the so called swimming pool is not really a swimming pool at all just a place to stand up in and get wet. The so called swimming pool was so small, you would have thought with so many people on the ship like 6200 guest on our cruise, that the pool would be bigger not smaller. As you can tell this area is the most important to me. When it came to eating breakfast or lunch all areas we ate at was more like a mob seen, so crowded people everywhere bumping into one another meal time wassn't a pleasant encounter at all. I most likely won't be cruising on the Oasis class ship again I will have to travel to another port much farther away from our home in order to cruise Freedom, Voyager, Radiance or maybe even Vision Class Ships but Oasis not for me.

This ship is awesome and everyone should experience it at lease once in a lifetime but.....be prepared. This ship will cost you! Not only for your cruise but almost everything you do on it! 1. I did not like having to make reservations for show's. It would be so much better if you could just go to the show when you feel like it. When you are making the reservations, you have no way of knowing how your day is going to go and then your committed to a show that night and can't make it up another night. That's a real bummer. 2. I did not like having an 8:00 dinner when all the drawings and things were done at that time. It really was not fair to those diners. Come-on RC..... I know you can do better! 3. $$$ and more $$$ everything is going to cost you more money! Almost nothing is free on this trip. We spent as much on our sail pass as the tickets. Shame on you RC! 4. Drinks..... really.... I almost became dehydrated because of the small cups and watered down tea - crappy lemon aide, Water and coffee that would put hair on the chest of an infant. There really was nothing unless you wanted to pay out the wazzzooo. At least let us bring something on board that we can drink out of. 5. Games??? What are those?? Things that people play when on board. The Bingo was overpriced. Trivia was lame. What happened to all the fun games that you normally enjoy on cruises. 6. Don't let them know if you have any allergies to foods. I told them about mine and found out that they have the assistant chef's make the food in the morning then it sits all day waiting for your dinner. No wonder mine was cold EVERY night! 7. It was not all bad. We made great friends onboard and had a great time in spite of RC. Read Less

This was our first time on one of the Mega ships and although it was breathtaking I think we prefer the smaller, more intimate ships. Long lines getting on and off the ship. We felt like the Oasis (and RCCL) was competing with the Disney line for family business - of the 6,500 passengers on board, 2,000+ were children. Comparing this cruise to other RCCL cruises we found the food to be average and long lines at the Windjammer. Many of the buffet items were lukewarm or cold. We had late dining which interfered with many of the evening shows and on two separate occasions we had to send back our meals and make alternate meal selections because our original choice we unsatisfactory. Breakfast and lunch in the dining rooms were very good! As a beer lover I would like to see RCCL work to offer more craft beer selections and to also expand their liquor offerings to Crown and Anchor members. We will continue to cruise with RCCL and Celebrity but I don't see us ever returning to one of their Mega shipos, Read Less

Wanted to try a big ship, never again. Overcrowed with spring break teens and 1200 kids under 1200 sailing free- did not know that would happen. Windjammer llounge overcrowded a nd people were ureged to eat and leave because of long lines. Just a mob of people and decks overcrowed with lotys of playing kids and not enough chairs. Also the diamond passenger lounge was dismal and uninviting. Pretty much the same menu daily at windjammer. Much of the food prepared too early in bulk so things that should be hot were not and much was dreiod out- yecch. Dinner however were excellent in dining room first class food and service. In st. Maartenhad to take water taxi at our expense to wontown- should have been free. Would never cruise a big ship again, but that is their direction aimed at families with small kids. Also price of drinks and the drink package are way too high. A beer ends up costing over $7.00.also was no special embarkation lounge or cofee for diamond passengers like at other terminals- skip this ship. Read Less

Convenience: Port Canaveral within easy 1/2 day drive from home. We have usually cruised with Princess before, though we have tried others. This was first, and probably last, on Royal Caribbean. Customer service was poor; website very hard to navigate; info about tours very scanty and hard to come by. But mainly we felt the entire cruise was an effort by Ship's Company to gouge very nickel out of every pocket. Most on-board activities had to do with selling; prices for drinks were WAY higher than others; costs for specialty restaurants were double others; and above all that the sense was that all they wanted to do was SELL, SELL, SELL and rake in the money. Captain Rob had a smooth sounding voice; but for the rest, it was too over-the-top. The enforced "cheerleading" at every occasion after 7 days got to turn our stomachs. In all, we probably will avoid Royal Caribbean again; but esp. the over-sized Oasis class ships, where the size seems to have outstripped the ability to attend to individuals. Read Less

This was my first cruise, and I chose this one because of the ship. It's huge and offers a lot of activities. The ship is beautiful - I recommend taking the all-access pass behind-the-scenes tour to learn about how the ship works, from dining services to the bridge. It's worth the $119. The crew works very hard, but they seemed to be under staffed. Buffet dining experiences were chaotic - I recommend doing the dining rooms for breakfast and lunch. In Nassau, I recommend scheduling an excursion, even if you don't like scheduled excursions. The shopping experience in town, which is within walking distance of the ship, is disappointing -- lots of dirty shops filled with tourist junk sold by aggressive sales people. In St. Thomas I recommend taking a taxi and skipping the ship's excursions! Explore on your own, but DO NOT get into a "gypsy cab." We discovered Secret Harbor, a resort on the east end of the island. It's about a 45-minute cab ride, and it's quiet, beautiful, and the staff is amazing. A lot of locals hang out there, which tells you something! Prices for drinks and food are reasonable. In St. Maarten, take a cab to Orient Beach. Not as friendly as St. Thomas, but every bit as beautiful. It is overrun with tourists, but the beach is so big that you will be comfortable. Read Less

We enjoyed the food in the specialty dining rooms, not only for the food options, but the service of the staff is far superior, and attentive to detail, to that of the dining room or buffet. The ship is beautiful with many varied activities, but making reservations before you board is confusing, especially, when you don't know what other activities will be available to you when you are actually on board and how to co-ordinate them so they don't overlap. There were shows that we wanted to see, but they were only available during our dining times or some shows were cancelled, due to technical difficulties or weather conditions. There should be rules of conduct for families and children and ship staff to support the rules. There is no reason children should be throwing things from balconies, running and playing football in the halls, throwing golf balls at each other or hitting each other with golf clubs. Dress codes should be enforced in dining rooms for dinner. Poorly behaved children should find suitable dining options as to not disturb the rest of the dining room patrons. Parents and staff should be aware that others would like a pleasant dining experience. Read Less

This was our 2nd cruise and I expected so much more from Royal Caribbean. Oasis was beautiful, however, embarkation was ridiculous and the entire cruise was like this, too many people. Too much waiting in line. I am a patient person but this was ridiculous. Our cabin was a boardwalk balcony and it was far, far away from an elevator or even usable steps so we had to go forward just to go backwards. Ridiculous. Our shower was moldy and stunk and the couch was so dirty we had to cover it with a sheet. Our cabin steward was just OK which is not the usual RC experience. There werre plumbing problems onboard and I washed my hands in nasty black water at one point - unexpected, who knows what it was. My cousins room leaked over their bed in the middle of the night, who knows what that was. It was their 50th wedding anniversary - NOT GOOD! The cigarette smoke from the casino permeates the waiting area for main dining on Deck 3 so you experience that nastiness while waiting to eat twice a day. My Aunt was totally misdiagnosed and mistreated by the ship physician which led to serious problems after she got off the ship. If you are planning to bring someone who needs a wheelchair to embark or disembark - Don't do it....this process is completely inappropriate and time consuming to the point of harmful to the person needing help. Our dining experience was exceptional. We could not have had a better experience in Main Dining. They went above and beyond to allow our extended family to be able to set together and to accomodate my dietary needs. Along with all that they waited on us like both royalty and their best friends. I cannot say enough about our dining experience. Thank you RC for getting this one right. Read Less

My husband and I are fairly experienced cruisers. We have been on 24 cruises, 15 of them on Royal Caribbean. This was our second cruise on Oasis, and we have been on Allure 4 times, so we know the big ships pretty well. Overall, the cruise was just OK. With the exception of our RCI sponsored excursion in Jamaica, which was horrible. The ship was clean, our room steward fantastic. But, as other cruisers on Oasis have mentioned, the food in the MDR was mediocre, and everything was served at room temperature. Not good when you enjoy soup! Most of the crew we encountered looked stressed, tired, and downright unhappy, including the entertainment staff. I had an encounter with a woman in Guest Services that was particularly hostile when I asked her a simple question on day 3 about the time frame to carry our luggage off the ship when disembarking. She looked annoyed and barked "It will be in the Cruise Compass". What?? When pressed, she finally told me the hours to carry your own luggage were 6:30 AM to 8:00 AM. How hard was that? Bright spots on the cruise were Sabor (the Mexican restaurant-delicious!), the diving show, Vintages for wine and tapas, and the ice show. Embarkation was a breeze, and debarkation was the fastest we have ever experienced. We were second in line for customs - a first for us! We will probably try either Celebrity (I know-RCI owns them) or a smaller RCI ship next time. Read Less

We have cruised with Royal Caribbean 3 other times in the past. Its always been a good experience. But time we were disappointed in our food quality and entertainment experience. As for dinning, we dined once at one of the speciality dinning (150 Central Park), it was good and the service was great. As for the the dinner room experience, the options were limited and meal was far from tasty. On past cruised, I loved all their options and sometimes would order 2-3 appetizers. Also breakfast and lunch were ok, nothing to brag about. As for entertainment, they only had one comedian that performed. He wasn't funny like some of the past comedians we have seen on Royal Caribbean. He didn't have a skit and was doing improv, aka - making fun of the guest. It came off as mean instead of funny, I'm pretty sure most of the guest felt insulted. The impersionist was good, he was funny and did a good job. As for CATs, the musical we didn't see it cause it was 3 hours along and we liked to fill our nights with a variety of activities. From what we heard from other guest on the ship that a lot of people left during the second half. Also, the music on the ship was ok, we always find two bands we liked. There was one band that played pop music in Dazzles. They were great. Also the classical music in centeral park was awesome. Read Less

I chose to book my honeymoon with Royal Caribbean. I chose this company because of their reputation, loyalty program and a past experience aboard. I was shocked to find two days before my cruise date that my honeymoon would be less of an experience than I expected it to be. I called RC two months or so before the sail date and booked directly with one of their phone operators, Lewis. Lewis was so helpful, kind and excited for my honeymoon. I told Lewis that my husband and I were looking to book a suite, wanted have some alone time, wanted to celebrate his birthday, dine at the chefs table and really enjoy the ship for what it had to offer. Lewis explained that I would get better pricing if I agreed to a "suite guarantee" where I didn't have a choice of stateroom location but I would be assigned one in the class I chose before the sail date. I was so excited about what the suite class had to offer. We planned on being lazy, laying out on our private balcony. Away from the many families with young children that would be onboard. We looked forward to Coastal Kitchen, and priority boarding. A honeymoon is meant to be lavish and sadly our expectations were not even half met. Two days before our sail date I received a phone call that the ship "was overbooked" and RC was downgrading our Jr. Suite to an ocean balcony room. I honestly cried, I know it sounds dramatic but I had an image painted in my head of the vacation my husband and I were about to enjoy. As I tired not to cry on the phone with the RC rep. I was rushed into agreeing to their downgrade with a money back offer on the difference of the room and $300 onboard credit. My husband came home to a crying wife, and quickly called RC back to explain that the offer wasn't sufficient and the vacation wasn't proving to be what we had imagined. The phone operator assured me that we would get a phone call the morning of the sail date as to whether or not there were any cancellations. She promised our sea pass card would reflect the initial booking we made in the suite class and the opportunity to utilize Coastal Kitchen would be there. She also threw in the complete romance package, I guess so that my husband could try to salvage the lack of grandeur we were about to experience. As I got on board,I chose to stand in line and ask for an upgrade back to our original plan but no one knew of any cancellations. Our room was clean, and fine but for the vacation we imagined it was anything but great. The complete romance package was an embarrassment, a bottle of cheap champagne and a tray of soggy appetizers. As to not make this too long let’s skip to a few nights before departure from the ship where I stood at guest services once again to explain what had happened. Many guests I spoke with on board, many of whom we became friendly with assured us that this was not the RC way, and that our situation was definitely not being handled correctly. I didn't want to not enjoy our time so I chose to put off resolving the issue until the end. The best guest services could come up with was 20% off our next cruise which seems a little silly when online I can book a bogo deal or better. I am now dissuade from causing with RC again because I would hate to have my reservation pulled out from under me again. Granted we did still dine at CK however that was only after explaining the entire situation to the matrie d’ which was a little embarrassing to have to justify. The things I enjoyed about my cruise were as followed. The Chef’s Table experience, and the service we got from those up in CK. As a forward note, my husband and I planned on spending money, so the onboard credit was minuscule to the overall picture. We appreciate good service and tip well so rest assured that we took care of those who took care of us. Now, if only I can resolve this issue and have RC take care of us the way I expected them to. I was withheld from having the ultimate experience that my honeymoon should have been. I only get one and choosing RC seems to have been a mistake. I would love to sort this out and speak with an RC representative so that this doesn’t happen to any other newlywed couple on the vacation that they deserve. Read Less

Chose this cruise for my honeymoon. I have cruised Royal Caribbean before and had a very positive experience. When I saw Oasis of the Seas was going to be leaving Port Canaveral the day after my wedding, I thought that would be a great ship/trip for my honeymoon. The ship was beautiful and lots of cool things to see and look at; the staff were all friendly and the service was good, but that's about the extent of it. The food was just okay in comparison to other cruises I had been on. With so many people, it seemed the quality was just not there. Even at Giovanni's, it just was not good Italian food. The Windjammer cafe always had a line for breakfast and lunch and seating was always an issue. It seemed the windjammer served the same food every day for breakfast and lunch. On a cruise in June of this year, Carnival had an omelet station for example. You picked your ingredients and they made your omelet to order. On Oasis, it was pre-made egg patties, powdered eggs, bacon wasn't cooked all the way. And at lunch, there were no close by places to get food near the pool area. On other ships, there were places for burrito's, hamburgers, and the cafe was near by and had open air seating. Just was not as accessible on this ship. Entertainment, well it was the same shows every night. No variety. And you have to make reservations for everything. You can't just look at the schedule and decide to go to a comedy show, or headliner show. If you don't have reservations ahead of time, everything is booked and you're out of luck. Again, beautiful ship, but due to the size and number of people, the quality lacked on the food and entertainment side I think. I would like to try Royal again, but on a smaller ship maybe and see if there is a difference. I thought this would be the best cruise I ever took, but to date, Carnival Valor has been the best hands down. Read Less

this ship is very modern, but way too big. the problem is the crowds of people. not so much in the different venues on the ship, but all around the ship. when you get off on the dock, the throng of people is overwhelming. the locals cannot handle the masses. all the local stores, tours, & streets are jammed. the situation for dinner was terrible. there were always too many people waiting in line. dinner was like a cattle call! the cabin was always too hot. we complained about the a/c, but never got any satisfaction. the shows were really good & well produced. the other problem we had was the lack of knowledge from the staff. nobody seems to know much of anything on board. when asking directions we got the wrong directions. when asking about internet & phone service we got the wrong answers. when we got the correct answers it took days of persistence. the ports were as lovely as ever.

We chose this cruise because we've always wanted to try out one of the mega-ships and came across a good deal but we're pretty sure we won't be sailing one of these type ships again any time soon. More like a floating Vegas hotel than a cruise ship. Luckily we had an oceanview balcony but if you have an inside cabin you might not even know you were on a ship unless you were up top in the pool and recreation area or in the back of the Boardwalk area. There is no promenade deck and hardly any outside views at all in the public rooms. The food was okay in the main dining room, nothing special. The first night the service was chaotic but the servers kept apologizing for the disorganization and it improved greatly after that. Lovely waiter and assistant, too. We had a 3 dinner package one of which was the only memorable one. The Italian was a disappointment although the wine pairing dinner in 150 Central park was the highlight of our dining experiences. We highly recommend that one. We had a wonderful server who's name escapes me, maybe because he poured a full glass of wine with each course and we were seeing double by the time dinner was over. We had to cancel our comedy club reservation that night we were so blotto from the wine pairing and couldn't get another reservation for the rest of the week unless we wanted to standby. Nope. No wasting an hour of my cruise time standing in line for a show I might not be able to see. Who's idea was it to have a comedy club with a capacity of just a couple hundred people on a ship with 6,000 passengers? The shows in the outdoor water theater were fantastic, just beautiful. Very talented artists! We went to see them twice, the first time we had a reservation and the second time we just walked up as we could see they still had a lot of seats available. The ship was full and you had to have reservations for most of your activities including the shows. Sorry, that much planning ahead on vacation is not for us. We did the private island excursion in Haiti which was very nice with not more than 30 something guests and a beautiful beach. You just have to try to ignore the Haitian men that stand on the beach staring and the ones in the boats holding up fish they want to sell. Overall the staff were great except for a couple of frazzled bartenders. Our room steward was top notch. We never had to ask for anything, he knew exactly what we needed and was just a sweet guy too. One tip ladies, they will have 2 Michael kors sales. They're both overpriced you can do much better at Macy's or ebay but if you really must have one (I got suckered into 2) go to the 2nd sale and get there early, better deals but the lines are long. Although they sold me a bag for $159.00 and then came running down the hall saying they charged me the wrong price. What?! How is that my problem? They said they would have to refund me and charge me the correct price $228.00. Now that I look back I should have objected but I felt I was being held hostage so I didn't make a fuss. We didn't have a drink package because we can't possibly drink that much including Diamond lounge complimentary drinks almost every evening. Which reminds me that we both came down with what we suspect was food poisoning. Our Diamond Lounge host came down with the same symptoms a few days before us. Severe stomach pains with headache and fever. It was not noro, no vomiting, etc. Luckily this happened the last 2 days of the cruise so we just stayed in our cabin in quite a bit of misery and had our towels switched out. My husband did not want to go to the medical facility, which I wish I didn't agree to. I had to go to the emergency room a few days after returning home because the pain would not go away. They didn't think it was noro either, did a CT scan and prescribed antibiotics which helped but with my already existing intestinal issues I have not been the same since. Luckily we have insurance because the ER bill was over $8,000.00 but I'm still working out the co-pays. We will not consider doing a ship with over 6,000 passengers again unless they can improve the disembarkation process. What a mess! We were both still feeling weak and felt we couldn't handle all of our bags ourselves to do the self disembarkation so we had to pick them up in the customs area. Big mistake. Our disembarkation time was about 8:15 am but our number wasn't called until after 10:00 and we didn't get out of the terminal until about 11:45 The customs hall is just not equipped to handle that many passengers in Fort Lauderdale. It was hot, with a sea of people in front of us and only 4 Customs windows open for U.S. passengers. Fights were breaking out in line. Where were the cruise line agents? Nowhere in sight. It was every man for himself. Our flight was about 2:00 and we were getting worried we might be too late which added to the stress. We mostly have good memories from this ship (after all it's a cruise!) but some not so good ones as well. A lot of people love the Oasis of the Seas and mega-ships like her but we like a cruising experience where the sea is the main attraction and the ocean views are everywhere. We're also not looking at RCCL for any future cruises. Our business, our countless past cruises or future dollars means nothing to them. Their "customer care" never answered any of my emails.

I was very disappointed with the cruise! We previously had been on the Oasis for 44 days. The Menu was very limited with NO cold soups and limited salads. Room Service was inconsistent. Sometime good coffee and sometimes sludge. Sometimes we got what we ordered and sometimes NOT. We did not know that the Diamond lounge had closed on deck 4 and reopened combined with the Concierge Lounge on deck 11.We did not receive our normal Amenities. A plate of 4 Chocolate Strawberries is it. I was quarantined to my cabin for a couple of days and when finally released, I could not get off the ship in Jamaica due to a miscommunication. The entertainment was great, especially Cats! The Comedy Club acts were fantastic, except for the Headliner named Kennedy who was just horrible. We had a Jr. Suite on the 7th deck and it was amazing. Being in a Jr. Suite gave us the ability to eat dinner in the Coastal Kitchen and we really enjoyed it. The suite and Pinnacle lounge is really nice and it would be nice if Diamond Plus cruisers were allowed usage of this facility. Children, well there were a lot of them Read Less

We chose the ship as a destination rather than the Islands. The ship is HUGE...TOO HUGE. We had a cabin forward which I do NOT recommend. It is a long hike to activities which are mostly aft. All staff were pleasant and helpful. The ship has many features, but with 6,400 passengers it was crowded. We choose "anytime" dining which proved to be a disaster. When trying to book ahead only once was the reservations phone even answered. Our balcony cabin was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom shower was spacious for a ship. The ice show was the best show I've seen in over 30 cruises. Negative: music in all locations is LOUD and techno for the most part. Aimed at 20 somethings. Simply terrible. Drink prices are bordering on THEFT. $6.95 for a beer plus 18% service charge and the guts to ask for a tip! That works out to about $168 for a case of beer that costs less than $20. The food was plentiful but bland except for Indian dishes. Again we did not use specialty restaurants because of outrageous up charges. Steakhouse was $79pp plus service of 18%. We probably won't cruise Royal again. Read Less

I'm a Crown & Anchor Gold member, which at this point it counts for nothing. With the new system, Gold members are NOT recognized at all. All you get is a letter advising you of discounts. The Oasis is a beautiful ship with lots of venues such as a boardwalk, aqua theater, zip line, flowrider, wall climbing, central park, ice skating ring, etc. The down side is that these venues are closed on ports of call. So if you choose to stay oboard you have limited choices. Avoid St. Martin by all means. It's filthy, the islanders are really pushy, if you go to the beach you will be harassed by local vendors to exhaustion, the shore excursion RC offers called "St. Maarten Beach Rendezvous" was terrible. The tour reps are rude, have no common sense (force us to stand in line in the pouring rain) which made the bus ride uncomfortable in our soaking clothes and freezing A/C. Ate lunch at the Kakao Beach restaurant in Orient Beach, the waiting staff is rude, treat you like an annoyance, never came back to check on us. You have limited time in San Juan, Puerto Rico (4 hours). I will never do the Eastern Caribbean route again. I have had a better experience in the Western Caribbean which includes Cozumel; Mexico really knows customer service and the locals at restaurants and bars understand and speak English. You can't understand a word in the Caribbean and they get upset about it. Bought the Premium beverage package, it was worth the cost, but did not get the soda cup had to request it three times, the pizzeria never carried bottled water, the food quality at the Windjammer was subpar, the reservation experience at the My Time Dining was the worst - we went three times and they never had our table reserved or ready. The second time we went to the dining room since our table was not ready, they had us walk to the 4th floor for a table. The third time, we were assigned a table right next to the waiter's station so we were literally on their way, so we asked to be seated elsewhere. The hostess took us to another table which was not ready so we were asked to wait. Since they were not going to clean it, she asked us to walk to another section. The waiter took a long time to acknowledge us. When he finally did he said "what is the confusion with the menu". There was no confusion, we were just waiting for him! I asked for a Pellegrino, they charged for it (even though a had the Premium beverage package). The maitre d' asked the waiter to cancel the charge, he did not. Had to called Guest Services to ask them to remove the charge (but had the wait 30 minutes on hold to get through). I always prepay the gratuities, but this time I felt it was not correctly distributed. After all the hassle in the main dining room, we didn't go back. The zip line is fun, however the waiting time is ridiculous. It was opened at 1:00 and there were 3 staff to prepare you. All of a sudden only 1 staff person was left and it made the waiting time 2 hours! Overall, I like the ship a lot and the shows, but the customer experience was not what I expected. Particularly the staff does not understand English, the food was subpar and the shore excursion was a nightmare. Choose another part of the Caribbean to visit. Read Less

We chose Royal Caribbean this time because we wanted to try something different and had cruised a few times on Carnival and enjoyed it. Overall the cruise went well the destinations and excursions were very good and crew was courteous and friendly but not as friendly and personable as Carnival simply for the fact that there was 7,000 people on board this monster of the seas. We reserved a dinner at the Chops Restaurant and between the appetizer and dinner we waited two long hours. The Staff finally had other staff members from other restaurants come to help. The lines were long at the bars in the pool areas during certain peak times in the day and the promenade was always packed with people as there was always sales on watches and purses as you would have thought you were at a mad flea market. The only time It was not crowded was after midnight. There were a lot of parties of passengers that were celebrating some sort of event birthdays or anniversaries and some got very loud and out of hand in certain areas. The Cabins I give a 5 star rating as everything was very clean and comfortable. If you like a very crowded cruise on the largest ship I have ever been on then Oasis of the Seas is for you. Read Less

Underwhelming! It has cured me from wanting to go on RCI again This is a really big ship yet I must say it is not as crowded as you might fear. Most all times it seemed no more congested than a smaller ship. This is a short review from 4 "mature" Adults, so use that in your evaluation. The last 6 cruises we have taken Have been on RCI. In terms of service personnel and food they have steadily gone downhill. This ship is a "destination" with a carousel, Rock climbing wall, mini zip line, etc. This is fine as there are only so many ports in the Caribbean, and it could become boring were there not alternate things to do.. Ship is neat, clean and in good repair. Their cabins were likewise, yet their design is poor in terms of closet layout. Typical to RCI's deterioration is their "nickel and dime-ing", such as the removal of pen and paper from the staterooms. Not a big deal until you have a problem and need to write down the information being conveyed over the phone. possibly the smallest TV I have ever seen on a ship. .Staff: Reservations desk were excellent. Getting on and off was fine, Overall someone has waived their magic wand over the crew and removed every last vestige of enthusiasm and natural friendliness On a 1 to 10 scale, our 4 person rating ( about 50 cruises to our experience) yields between a 3.5 and a 4. Not a very good rating. It bordered on annoying. Possibly we could count 4 or 5 of the staff that exhibited any form of friendliness or desire to be performance oriented. They just do not know how to deal in a service capacity. Maybe RCI has switched to a hiring policy that does not include finding friendly or service oriented people. Who knows.. Whatever the case It is markedly not for the better. Frankly the guys slicing bologna at the local market here are friendlier and show more enthusiasm. Four weeks after this sailing we did an MSC out of Miami and it was back to the old style of treatment. Food: Ahhhh more nickel and dime-ing. Overall food quality has deteriorated. Skipping to the bottom line here.... a 3.5 out of 10 would be generous. It seems they are pushing you to their specialty restaurants...pushing heavily. I believe (at least on our cruise) they have resorted to using powdered eggs for their breakfast scrambled eggs. and... they have eliminate the egg cooking station, so i wonder how many portions of eggs go into the garbage barely eaten. Really Chef ?.. Powdered eggs,,, yech!!!!! (Oh, and they were the worst powdered eggs I have ever had) Lots of Pasta was available..... frequently semi cooked. we are not talking al dente here.... we are talking crunchy. More than one station, more than one day. Staff indifferent.... I also think they believe they have mastered a way to make reconstituted chicken. Anyway... that is what it looked, felt and tasted like. Note to chef.... you have not mastered it. BUT you have mastered the excessive use of salt. ) wow... I'm thankful the water was not another one of the pay extra options). A few more: Central Park is great!!! Beautiful!!!! Took a tour of it. Narrator mumbled, talked low and away from the group... so we left... BUT they did at least offer a tour. The place for sandwiches there is GREAT!! and Giovanni's Service, personnel and food was terrific!!!! Great great fillet... these two have the highest recommendations of anything on the ship They don't have: stargazing, enrichment programs, information as to where we were, what we were passing, etc. Part of their service isolation experience I suppose. Entertainment was decent to good. They did "Cats" ( the musical, not the food), and it was very good, as was their water show. Yes there were bright spots. So....overall it was not a "bad" experience. It just was not good. it was as best mediocre. what you might settle for as a cut rate sailing. For a first timer...you might be impressed.... but if you have sailed RCI in the past, perhaps 3 or 4 years ago...or have sailed a number of other lines , you will definitely notice their deterioration in service, attitude and food. There is a lot of competition in the Miami Ft Lauderdale cruise business. MCI has already surpassed RCI, and others will also....unless RCI gets it together. Read Less

Let me say first that the staff and meal staff were great. Our last cruise on the Oasis was four years ago. We learned first hand about RCI's new penny pinching ways. Yes meals are included but they make it clear that if want the really good food you pay $30 extra even in the main dinning room. You used to be able to check the internet for about .50 a minute. Now you must pay a ridiculous $30 even if you only want to use it for one minute. No matter where you look it seems that they want to charge you more for something. Don't even get me started on the $2.50 for very small bag of popcorn. We paid thousands of dollars for our cruise and you want to charge me for a bag of popcorn!! I am emerald status on RCI, we always choose it because we used to consider it one step above Carnival. Now no mints on the pillow, fewer towel animals, no drinks on the dock after excursions. These were small things that used to differentiate it from Carnival. At lease Carnival has 24 hour soft serve ice cream. The little things that made RCI special seem now to be lacking. The large outdoor TV's at the back of the ship clearly require maintenance. Large blocks don't work. You now MUST pay the gratuities automatically. Since it is a required fee I am not sure how it is a gratuity. There is nothing to give the attendant or waiter at the end of the week which becomes very awkward. Perhaps that is by design. This should now be part of the cruise price up front. Only three ports during the cruise and time at two of the ports was short, I am assuming to save on dock charges. Left Nassua at 2:30. Frankly why bother to go there. Limited shopping, excursions, and beaches. Also a very northerly port for the middle of winter. We also stopped a St. Maarten and St. Thomas. Left St. Maarten at 4:30, why? We had two days at sea to return to port. We are avid snorkelers, the two stop Buck island snorkel in St Thomas was very good. The map in the stateroom shows the boat docked next to the town in St Thomas. That is not were we were docked. Would have been nice if someone on the ship had let us know it was going to cost money to go to town before we left the ship. Much of the entertainment was cancelled due to higher seas. I truly understand that the seas will impact any performance. But why not have alternative entertainment for those days instead of nothing at all. The cruise director had very little interaction with the us. On previous cruises the Director at the end of shows would tell us about what to expect the next day and things we should look for. This one seemed more interested in getting off the stage. Read Less

Boarding: Very quick! The check in process was quick and efficient. We then went upstairs in the cruise terminal and had a short wait before it was our turn to board the ship. Probably less than 10 minutes. This was about Noon. Once onboard we realized that we couldn’t get into our stateroom until 1pm. No big deal. We had our first drinks and ate lunch at the Park Café. Those beef sandwiches really are fantastic!!!!!!!! Stateroom: We were in room 9196 – A balcony room on “the hump”. Upon arrival in our room our first thought was that it was pretty spacious. We would’ve liked it better if the bed was near the balcony door instead of the vanity being near the balcony door – but no big deal. Just the luck of the draw as our neighbor’s room was configured the opposite way. Our room wasn’t 100% clean. There was a ½ eaten banana in our fridge and some feminine products left in a drawer in our bathroom. Not really a big deal though. I know they turn over those rooms really, really quickly. I had brought a travel clock along that also included a thermometer. I sleep best when it is cold. The coolest it ever got in our stateroom was 70 degrees though. No problem – we asked our room attendant, Michael, for a fan and he brought us one within the hour!!! Impressed. Speaking of cold – our fridge never did cool our water bottles much cooler than room temperature. We could not find an adjustment dial so we just dealt with it. Food: The Park Café is almost always packed. The sandwiches, soups and salads are great, but there were 2 times we tried to eat lunch there but there were no empty tables inside or outside. We ate 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner in the Windjammer and all 3 times were awful experiences. The amount of people inside the Windjammer was very overwhelming and the food was very underwhelming. I would suggest staying clear of this place unless you are desperate! Chops – We ate there the first night and got a 25% discount. The steak was excellent!!!! And we both loved the jumbo shrimp cocktail. I would suggest eating there at least once on your trip. Giovanni’s Table – We ate there for dinner one night and it was fantastic! Here’s a tip – One of their dinner options is a Filet Mignon – my husband got this and said it was the same as the Filet he had at Chops. Chops is $35 per person and Giovanni’s is only $25 per person! So if you have a steak person with, then opt for Giovanni’s if the rest of your party wanted Italian. We had “My Time Dining” and actually really enjoyed that. We got the same seating section in the main dining room and the same waiter every night. Our server was Euclid from the Philippines and he was exceptional!!! I cannot say enough good things about him. He was efficient, excited, personable and fun! What an asset to Royal Caribbean! More about My Time Dining. We had booked all of our dinner times months before we boarded the ship. We never waited more than a minute or two for our table at our reservation times. There were a few nights that we wanted to go to dinner earlier or later than we originally planned and all we had to do was call the dining room and they made it happen. I would definitely pick My Time Dining again. The food in the main dining room was hit or miss. We didn’t eat anything there that really “wowed” us at all. One night I had the lasagna and found it to be truly awful. Thursday night was “Lobster Night”. My husband and I both had the lobster tail and prime rib. It was “ok”. It seems like RCL should invest more into their main dining room menus. How can the food quality be so different from the specialty restaurants? Seems like they make the food in the main dining room less quality in an effort to get people to go to the specialty places where they charge the additional fee. Not cool Royal Caribbean! Another tip – Eat breakfast at Johnny Rockets! It is “free” and made to order!!! They have French toast, pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, omelets, made to order eggs and great coffee! We ate almost every breakfast there. Sorrento’s pizza is available almost constantly. I found it to be a pretty delicious snack especially after a few drinks – My husband thought it was the worst pizza he’d ever tried. We agreed to disagree on this one. We also enjoyed a few hot dogs at The Dog House. Great afternoon snack and usually with no line. The Pools: This is where I feel you really notice the 6,000 other passengers. Unless you were up really early, it was almost impossible to find a chair in the shade at the main pools. There were signs everywhere that said that pool attendants would remove people’s things if their chairs were vacant for more than 30 minutes. We watched for this and in 7 days we did not see this happen one time! Very frustrating! While in the main pools we felt like we were basically packed into the pools like sardines in a can. You could barely turn around without touching someone else in the pool. The Solarium area was nice but with the air temp of 90+ degrees sometimes, this glass enclosed area became a sauna!!! But it was easier to get a pool chair here (although not many in the shade) and the adult only pool in the Solarium had much cooler water than the main pools. The Solarium Bar is actually upstairs from the pool area. This is also not ideal. Another one of our favorite crew members worked in the Solarium Bar – His name is Wesley and he was awesome! He always greeted my husband by name and was very quick, friendly and efficient! The Elevators: There were times you waited a few minutes but then there were also times there was no wait at all. I guess with 6,000 passengers I expected worse. The Shows: We booked all of our shows months before we boarded also. Here’s a tip - If you have a reservation – plan to get to the show at least a ½ before it is scheduled to start so that you can get you pick of seat locations. The Water Show – Oasis of Dreams – Very entertaining and in a beautiful open air venue at the back of this ship. The breeze that night was refreshing. See it! Rated 4/5 The Ice Show – Frozen in Time – Worth seeing. The show is based on some Hans Christian Anderson stories like the “Ugly Duckling”. Rated 3/5 Come Fly Away – SUPER EXCELLENT! This show was in the main Opal Theater and was Very entertaining and with great effects and music, this was our favorite show. Rated 5/5. Cats – We didn’t see it. We heard from numerous other passengers that it was too long and that many left ½ way through the show. The Headliner Show – I can’t remember the man’s name but he was great. He sang Motown Hits plus other things. He was the only “Headliner” and did the same show all week. The Piano Man at the Schooner Bar was our ABSOLUTE favorite. His name is Peter Ritz and he is phenomenal! He played almost nightly at the Schooner Bar and takes requests! He played and knew almost every song that was asked of him. One night he played my husband and my “wedding song” (It was our 15th Anniversary) and we danced. It was very special. So GO SEE PETER RITZ!!!! You will not be disappointed. The Dazzles club had a group called Muzik Express that played nightly – They were truly awful! The Ship Itself: She is huge! We enjoyed the different neighborhoods but found the “Central Park” area to be extremely warm and had no breeze. I would imagine those balcony suites would not have any breeze either. But it was neat watching birds fly in and out of the trees! The Boardwalk neighborhood was basically the carousel (which only ran at certain times of the day), the Hot Dog Stand, a candy store (that we never saw even open), Sabor, a bar, Ben & Jerry’s and Johnny Rockets. Not really much to do there. We did find it odd that Deck 16 was the only open air deck on the ship accessible to all of the passengers. Deck 15 had the pools but had windows all the way around. Deck 17 was open air also but was for suite members only. This was disappointing since we very rarely even saw any people on this deck. So Deck 16 is the only one with open air and a railing but then ½ the deck has the “smoking section” GROSS! So basically only ½ of deck 16 was open for us to enjoy. I would prefer more open air decks and LESS SMOKING! Speaking of smoking - there were several times we had to leave our balcony because neighbors were smoking. Ugh. It was hard to tell exactly where the smoke was coming from so it was impossible to accurately report it to the crew. We also saw people smoking on their Boardwalk balconies. Other than that, we were very impressed at how clean the ship was in the common areas. We never really saw people cleaning but it was always spic and span. Drinks and Drink Packages: We opted not to get any drink package and to pay “ala carte”. It would’ve cost close to $800 for the two of use to have the Premium Package for the week. After we got back home I “tallied up” our bar tab and we paid $550 in drinks between the 2 of us. This included daily beer, wine, fruity drinks, mixed drinks, 1 trip to Starbucks and a few sodas. We carried 12 bottles of water on the ship and that lasted us the whole week. Unless you really plan to party hard, I would suggest not getting the drink package. We drank at a reasonable rate and were “tipsy” more than a few times for our $550. A suggestion might be to try 1-2 days without the drink package. If you find that you are drinking more than $60-$70 per person/per day you can always add the drink package on later in your trip. FYI: Additional tips are optional, but we found that even giving your bartender $1 extra made a difference. The next time you would visit that bar your drink would be stronger and come faster. Itinerary: We found Labadee to be just “ok”. We opted to just sit on the beach and picked Columbus Cove. We had gone immediately to the Excursion Desk when we boarded the ship to try to get a Cabana on the island. We were told they were $300 and offered to suite guests first. At that price we passed on the Cabana (even though they really were sold out prior to boarding.) We got free beach chairs on Labadee and got their early to make sure we got a spot under some trees. The water was slightly murky. Not the clear turquoise water that you see in other places in the Caribbean. The sand though was white and fine. There were jellyfish in the water and a guest did get stung. They seemed to move out of the area once more people started swimming. The Labadoozee drink is $12 but it was delicious! We ate at the free Royal Caribbean BBQ buffet. It was just “ok”. Behind the pavilion that covered the buffet was a large wall with barbed wire along the top. Seemed sad. Haiti really is a poor country. We imagined throwing all the food over but didn’t imagine that would be allowed. Falmouth was nice. The shopping right outside the ship was great. We opted to go on the Red Stripe Beach excursion. The beach was clean and the staff was excellent. We had a very relaxing time there and got to finally enjoy some pristine turquoise Caribbean water! Well worth the $29 per person! Cozumel was also a great stop. The shopping area right outside the ship was large and the Mexican merchants loved to haggle! We opted to take a Taxi (they are all lined up) to Paradise Beach. The taxi was $15 for the two of use each way. Paradise Beach was fantastic! $3 per person to enter, which got you a beach or pool chair. You were asked to purchase $10 worth of food or beverage per person. We enjoyed THE BEST tacos we’ve ever had here. The pool was giant and cool. The beach was large with lots of shade. Great day! Disembarkment: The whole process ran about an hour behind schedule due to some troubles with customs. Ugh. It seemed like we waited forever in the Opal Theater waiting for our turn to leave. All in all we really had a great time. We would probably not pick to go on Oasis again just because we felt like there were too many people and not enough open deck space. The food could use improvement but then again the entertainment was great. Read Less
