The ship is huge and offers so many activities that we needed all seven days to explore everything. We enjoyed the perfect amount of rest and relaxation, while also enjoying activity. We did my time dining in the American Icon restaurant, and it seemed like one side had better service than the other. However, the food was always great, especially the desert. We always ate breakfast at Windjammer, which has a buffet with anything you could want on it. Sorrento's was always the go to in between for pizza. One place you have to visit is Cups and Scoops... Cupcake Sunday... Your choice of cupcake and your choice of Ben and Jerry's ice cream with whatever toppings you want. The stateroom was amazing and always kept really clean. One thing that was surprisingly pretty clean all the time was the public restrooms, but the staff did a good job keeping everything clean. The entertainment was really good! The bands played well and singers sang well. Jazz band was a favorite. Boleros was always full of Latin flavor, and the Temperature band in Dazzles did a great Earth, Wind and Fire tribute. My favorite port of call was St. Martin, even though it's still pretty damaged from the two hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunami they had. There are lots of damaged buildings, buildings that are completely gone, and shipwrecks in the water still. However, we did a cool excursion through Royal Caribbean that took us on a double decker bus to a rum tasting, gelato place, and cheese tasting. We also got to see Maho Beach for a short time. Overall, we had a blast! Spent too much and ate too much, but it was worth it and you only live once so we splurged a little. Read Less

Everyone on the Oasis was kind and polite. The ship had so many activities that I couldn't get to them all. The shore excursions were fantastic. The dining on board was varied and the service was great. Our housekeeper knew us by name and always spoke to us when he saw us. Everyone was willing to go out of their way to make our experience special. The only annoyance was getting off the ship at the ports and getting to the excursion meeting spot in a sea of people who didn't know what they were doing. The shore excursions crew were very vague about the meeting points, mostly just telling us "you'll see it." They also rushed us and threatened to leave us, but every single excursion started late. The excursions themselves were amazing. We snorkeled in Nassau, toured St. John when we stopped at St. Thomas (and still had plenty of shopping time in St. Thomas), and took a 6-hour island tour by boat in St. Maarten. In each case, the boat captains, taxi drivers, and crews were knowledable, fun, and polite. Read Less

I, my fiancee and her adult daughter, wanted to experience a cruise on one of the Oasis - class ships. We booked the Oasis of the Seas, and it was fabulous! I had never been on such a large ship before, and I was worried about how crowded everything might be, especially since I use a scooter. My worries were without basis, since the ship was easily-accessible and the staff we encountered were terrific. Our embarkation was incredibly fast and without any issues. Disembarkation was the same, even though we decided to handle our own luggage. Everyone made it so easy, and I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it went. My fiancee and I had a Jr Suite with an oversized balcony, which was spacious and very comfortable. I use a scooter and I was pleasantly surprised at how much room there was for my scooter to be parked and even, turn around. Although we had signed up for "My Time Dining", we soon fell in love with the Windjammer, with so may options. Even though it was buffet-style, there was an overwhelming choice of food, with multiple desserts and more choices for appetizers, sides, entrees, etc. And best of all, you could go up for as many trips as you could fit! LOL Entertainment was professional and very high quality, which I would expect at locations like Las Vegas. We especially enjoyed the performance of Cats and the rock 'n roll revue, but every show we attended was wonderful. If you can't find something to do every minute of every day, then it's all your fault! There is something for everyone, and if nothing else, there are many pools and hot tubs available. Look for the free custard (cone) machines - they were a wonderful way to cool down after swimming or sunning. Drink service was also excellent, with staff coming around regularly to bring you your favorite drink. Our shore excursions were lots of fun, including our tour of the Atlantis at Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas. This resort is one of the best in the world, with lots of things to see and do. I stayed at the Atlantis in 1998 and there is so much more to it now. Make sure you get to see the amazing aquarium, with sharks, barracuda, manta rays, and many other genus of fish. Unfortunately, St Thomas did not offer any accessible tours, however, we made do with nearby shops, bars and restaurants. There was also free entertainment at the port (steel drum band). Our stopover at St. Maarten/St Martin, was good, with an accessible tour available. Our one disappointment was that there is still a lot of residual damage from hurricanes Irma and Maria, with missing roofs, walls and lots of tree damage. It was sad to see all the damage, especially after having been in St Maarten in 2009 and enjoying t very much. Overall, we were thrilled with our cruise and we look forward to another one soon. Whether you are a veteran cruiser or a newbie, Royal Caribbean knows how to treat you and you will soon be convinced that cruising is a great vacation alternative and experience. Read Less

We were celebrating our anniversary. Embarkation at the Port Canaveral Pier was easy with no hassles or delays. A far better experience than the first cruise we took a few years ago. The service we received on board was excellent! Our cabin attendant was always very cheerful and extremely helpful providing assistance throughout our voyage. We cannot say enough about the wait staff in the American Icon Dining Room. They exceeded our expectations every night. We felt welcomed every time we dined there and they even remembered our names. That's quite a feat considering how many people they serve on a daily basis. The excursions were fun as well. However, we were very dissappointed with the 5 Star Island Tour in St. Thomas. The staff at Magen's Bay (gift shop/restaurant/bar) were rude and unaccommodating. They had beach umbrellas but refused to rent them even though it was a very hot day. They had negative attitudes toward the guests and service was very slow. The beach was beautiful but until the vendor enhances their customer service, I would not recommend this excursion. Other than that, we had a great experience on this sailing! Read Less

The ship and itinerary matched the experience I was looking for. Stayed in Crown Loft Suite. I think this is the best suite/room I have stayed in on any ship. I like the ports of call with Nassau being the least favorite. Would have rather spent a day in Labadee or Cocoa Cay instead of Nassau. The amount of time in Nassau is too short to enjoy the expensive water park at Atlantis and too long if you are just in the market area. The rest of the island is pretty sketchy. Saint Thomas and Saint Marten are recovering from the hurricanes steadily and are great ports of call. Tivi resort in Saint Marten was a great place to spend the day. Clean bathrooms, restaurants, shops and bars. Good selection of water sports as well. The Oasis is now my favorite class of ship. The only suggestion is to add water slides (on Oasis itself) for the kids like other ships have. Dining at Coastal kitchen and access to the concierge lounge made the cost for a loft suite hold more value. Complimentary drinks throughout the day and evening was also a bonus. Main dining room was good and having other complimentary dining such as park cafe was a nice change. Wi-Fi was also included and worked better on board this ship than it had on others. Always enjoy the on board entertainment, quality performances by very talented individuals. Overall it was a great vacation and we were blessed with great weather and flat seas. I highly recommend the Sky class suite experience if you can get a decent deal. Though it isn't cheap it comes with many perks and advantages. The drawback is once you have experienced this level (or higher like Star class), you wont want to go back. Its the difference of flying first class VS coach, except you live it 24-7 for a week.

The ship was absolutely beautiful. The entertainment was incredible especially the Aqua show and the Headliner show. We stayed in an ocean view balcony room on the 10th floor. I thought it was quite spacious and waking up to the view of the ocean is priceless. We mostly ate breakfast and lunch at the Windjammer Cafe because we had dinner reservations at many of the specialty restaurants. Giovannis was a great Italian place right in the Central park area of the ship. We also bought the Chefs table which was incredible. The wine and food were exceptional. Everything from start to finish was perfect. The only con I would give is the time spent in line waiting for our shore excursions that we purchased. We waited outside in the sun for an hour waiting for them to take us to a shuttle for our excursion. Did get very frustrating especially since we were only at places for a couple hours. I do understand that they need to organize a lot of people, but waiting over an hour was a bit redic. This is my only con though. Everything else was absolutely perfect!!! We already booked our next cruise in January. Read Less

There is something for EVERYONE on the Ship and in the ports! The food in the Windjammer, Wipe Out Johnny Rockets and the Solarium for Breakfast was very good. The variety was AMAZING! Windjammer was were we at for lunch and it had too many options of food! That was a good thing! We only ate in the Main Dinning Room (American Icon) at night. We had My Time and had a VERY rocky start but finished well. We like to meet people and in the beginning they insisted on putting us at a table for two! We did end up eating with another couple nights two on. It was GREAT> The food was AMAZING. Many choices for appetizers, main dish and dessert! Our room was GREAT. We booked a little late but the room fit our needs very well! Alex our room Steward was AMAZING . . . Hope we have him on another cruise. Best cabin Steward we have ever had with Royal Caribbean! ! ! We will cruise again as soon as we can because we loved it so much! ! The ports were Amazing. We enjoyed Bermuda the best as we have been to St Thomas and St Martin several times but we still enjoyed them! We love doing our own thing at ports of call and did so this time. We enjoyed the sea day too. There were many activities on the ship but again we did our own thing. Both embarkation and debarkation went VERY smoothly! Port Canaveral is one of the easiest ports for BOTH getting on and off the ship! VERY organized and VERY effecient in ALL respects! We have used five RC ports and by far PC is the BEST! Read Less

I chose RC at the last minute becasue we got a great deal. Whereas the overall ship was impressive to look at, it lacked a lot of details. ! of the 2 Drink machines ourtside of Sorrento's did not work the entire cruise. Do they not have a spare or someone that can fix these? 1 of the 2 ice cream machines by the pool only worked the first day. Once again, really?? I was unimpressed the free food choices. They want you to pay for anything above buffet food, basically. I've been on a few Carnival cruises and the Guy's Burger Joint was always packed and the food was wonderful! The "air-conditioning" in the cabin was a joke. I was told that it "met specs" by putting out 20.7C air. However, it could not remotely cool the room down. It took 2 dyas and 10 calls to Guest Services to get the champagne and cupcakes my wife had ordered for my birthday. Everyone seemed clueless when we even mentioned it! Our Kind converted twin beds would not stay together. I would wake up in a hole almost every night. I was not impressed with the food in the American Icon dining room and I reapeatedly had to ask, every evening, for a refill on my iced tea. The staff was very friendly though. The Windjammer conistently ran out of food options. The "taco bar" section only offered tacos and meat. I don't get it! My wife and I haved loved the piano bar on Carnival cruises. The Oasis piano comlpetely lacked any enthusiasm from the piano player and the seating arrangements had most people sitting with their backs to the piano which left them discconnected from the experience. I'm not sure if I will give RC another chance or not. Read Less

Oasis of the Seas is a massive and beautiful ship - so much to do and experience. Good food quality, friendly staff. Room was spacious; bathroom is a little tight; we had the best steward, Davison. Enjoyed the location of our room #7319... near back of ship we could walk just feet to balcony that overlooked the aqua theater; where we could watch them practice; watch shows or relax and watch the waves. A great ship for couples or families... areas and activities for all. The free included food spots are: Boardwalk Hot Dog stand (with a variety of types); Park Cage; Pizza; Windjammer; Wipe Out Cafe, and Promanade Cafe. Spa is very nice and the staff was nice and helpful. Great shows; our personal favorites were “Come Fly With Me” and the Aqua shows. Very nice pool options as well. Have fun relax and enjoy the ship and great service. Read Less

Cruising with Royal Caribbean is easy & hassle free. Beach towels are readily available, as well as bathroom re-stocking. Being on The Oasis of the Seas is like a floating city because of the restaurants, activities, shows, & constant events. If you like to relax, it’s also the perfect place to just lay out, swim, join the spa or hot tub, & just have drinks (or eat literally anytime you want). The food is my favorite part. The main dining rooms have elaborate 3 course meals, & the Windjammer has a huge variety from breakfast, lunch, dinner, & desserts. This doesn’t even include the restaurants on board. Extremely family friendly, there is a ton to do for kids, but they do a great job giving adults their own space, as well. Everyone goes above & beyond to be at your service. You truly feel like they are happy to have you. Read Less
