Great Experience overall but the billing dept very shady My wife returned 4 items she bought from the gift shops and we still got charged for the items the internet was horrible bought it and never used it and still got charged very crooked when i was the on ship they refunded me the money everything was alright until i got off the ship my final bill had the charges still there when i called the customer service number they told me to send a copy of the bill and they would take care of it never heard from them since The dining experience waiter and his help was awesome the cleaning lady was great too . Shore excursions were overpriced i think the magic number was $100 and over from something as simple as going down a slide The Entertainment and Activities on the ship were awesome Just beware of the Billing Dept Shady to return items you bought and still get charged is wrong Read Less

We really enjoyed the cruise - first with RC, and the overall experience was very good. The ship had many many show options, and plenty of eating options. It was a sold out cruise based on what we were told, so things got pretty busy from time to time - but I never felt overwhelmed. Our room was roomy enough for us to not feel cramped, but it may have felt a bit tight for elderly. The Royal Promenade was amazing, and the ship truly felt like an island at sea. There were plenty of places to 'disperse' without feeling like you had to be with a million other people. Things were organized, it was nice that you could reserve seats for all the shows, and the food (at least at the scheduled dinners) was simply amazing. We definitely recommend the ship, although the new 'techy' items weren't on the cruise ship yet. Apparently it's going in for refurbishing soon, but it didn't need it in my opinion! Read Less

First off let me say this…if you have a chance to book a cruise on Oasis of the Seas, JUST DO IT! Now that this is out of the way let me talk about one of the most amazing ships at sea today. I would say most amazing, but with Harmony and soon Symphony coming out with just a few more bells and whistles, Oasis still stands as one of the most amazing ships at sea to date. Do you want fine dining? Do you wish to just relax by a pool? Do you want a drink with an umbrella in it? Do you want adventure? Do you want thrills? Do you want to just walk around a park? Do you want to feel like your family can all find exactly what they are looking for? If you answered yes to any of these questions ladies and gentlemen I present to you the Oasis of the Seas. Oasis has more to do on it then any other ships out there (except Harmony and Symphony as stated earlier) do you want to just relax by the pool? There are plenty to choose from. Want adventure? Lets see zip line, flowrider surfing simulators, diving shows, full basketball court, volleyball and even a merry go round. But maybe you want to just dance at a club or sit at a bar and play trivia. Again you are in luck because there are multiple locations to do this in. Royal has finally found a way to justify the price of a cruise by not making the destinations the only important part of a cruise; they turn the ship into a destination of its own! So much so, that you may never want to get off the ship. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is the food, help at guest services, and the fact that the diving show (one of the big reasons we booked this ship) kept being canceled. The food seemed to be cold and just ok at many locations. Even at dinner in the main dining room the food got cold very quickly, like within a couple minutes so eat fast. The other problem I had was with guest services. I purchased the Replenish drink package so I could enjoy my vacation and not worry about a huge bill at the end. Every time I showed my card though, the bartenders would swipe it and then give me my drink and I was good. By the third day I checked and say I had several charges for drinks to my card. I spoke with guest services, they said they removed the charges. I checked another day later and even more charges on my card from drinks. I had to speak again to guest services. By the end of the cruise I still had charges to my account. It got really annoying because it seemed like all the bartenders on the ship had no idea what the RR on my card stood for. The other members of my party just had the soda package and they never had to scan their cards to get a coke. Even if I ordered a coke I still had my card swiped and charged. The diving show was a major reason for booking this ship, and it was canceled every day of the cruise until the very end. I know factors contribute to this but what was frustrating is when the diving show finally did happen on the last day, we tried to get the show for a time that wouldn't interfere with our dinner time in the main dining room and guest services were totally unhelpful with our dilemma and just said if you want to see the show you have to go at this time. So we missed dinner to see the show. And the show was not that great either possibly because it was in the middle of the day, in the hot sun. Other than that though, superb vacation and amazing ship!

The Oasis and Allure Class ships are the largest at sea. They are fantastic. You will throw rocks at other ships after trying the Oasis or Allure. Other than boarding you never know there are thousands of people on board. There are so many entertainment and dining options, you never see them all in one place. Finally spent a lot of time in the Adult Only Solarium. Excellent. We were on Oasis the week of Oct 4th, 2017, right after the hurricanes took out St Martin and San Juan. So the itinerary was changed to Nassau, not a favorite, Cozumel, always a favorite and Costa Maya was just OK. Most the Nassau day we spent in the Solarium. There are so many options for entertainment. We love the Comedy Club, Casino (Largest at sea), The Globe and Atlas Pub, Schooners Piano Bar, the High Dive Show on the back off the ship, we never miss The Quest (A Must See for Adults Only) and have loved the Broadway Shows until this one. We had seen Chicago and Momma MIa on Allure. Both Excellent. Oasis had Cats. Many never came back after the intermission. What the heck was that all about? Confusing at least. Love the dining Options. We had a romantic dinner for two at Giovanni’s. Best Steak on the ship. We loved it on Allure, too, 8pm dinning in the main dining room was perfect other than the nights we had shows booked. Excellent selection and service. The best show and dinner on the Oasis and Allure is Izumi’s. If you like Hibachi style food and cooking, Izumi’s is OVER THE TOP! Great food and what a SHOW! Not like you’ve ever seen. Book early. Word must be getting out. They raised the price since we were on the Allure. Finally, a big shoutout to our Designated Bartenders Harry and Vickie at the Globe and Atlas and Steven and Mark at the Casino. Tell them Elvis said Hello. They will know. Read Less

Went on this cruise for our 30th wedding anniversary. Royal Caribbean is our favorite line and it has yet to disappoint. This ship is beautiful and has many amenities. The service was wha we have come to expect as well as the room. We were on the 7th floor ocean view balcony room near the elevator- never heard a noise from it!! The only thing we were very disappointed in was the Cruise Director and staff. There is so much to see, do and be involved with on the ship, yet the activities staff seemed to lack the enthusiasm and/or experience on how to entice their guests to join in. They were rarely seen among their guests and informing them when/where the next activity would be. Of course there’s the compass to check as well as the known Royal Carribean activities, but as of the other ships (especially the Freedom with Casey Pelter-which at 2 years later I can still remember his name- that’s the impression he and his team left!). The staff were all quite young and looked mostly like they had that deer in the headlight look, and the Director, who was a little older than them, did not have what it took to carry the team. This was especially important as there were some circumstances beyond anyone’s control, we had extra sea days. We booked onboard again for next year on this ship again, as well as one for ay on another ship. I can only hope that a year is enough time for Royal Carribean to rectify this major flaw. Read Less

My husband and I had an incredible 7 night cruise on Oasis of the Seas! it was just the two of us to celebrate my birthday and anniversary. It was the largest ship we've ever been on. The food was excellent except at the Windjammer on Deck 16. The food was not as tasty as in our main dining room, the American Icon. The service everywhere excellent except for a grumpy lady when we were checking in at the gangway to get on the ship and at the casino. Our stateroom attendant and waiters were wonderful! There are soo many activities to participate in throughout the ship for any age which we loved. All of the various clubs and theaters all had their each unique vibe! The ship offered a variety of music styles at night which was also great for the options. We loved how there were multiple pools and jacuzzis to enjoy and help with crowd control! We can't wait for our next cruise! Read Less

My husband and I embarked on what ended up being a 10 day Western Caribbean cruise on Oasis of the Seas. We sailed before Hurricane Irma was projected to be on our path, so we had no idea what was coming. The ports were all OK, I couldn't do much because I am 5 months pregnant so we just walked around and chilled on the beach a little bit. In Cozumel we took a 35 minute boat ride to Playa del Carmen which was well worth it, the beach there is beautiful. Around the 3rd day of our cruise Hurricane Irma became a threat to the Caribbean and the Captain announced that although it was not going to affect our Western Caribbean itinerary, it was going to be in our path upon our return to Port Canaveral, so they were delaying our return to Tuesday (2 days). A lot of us had homes and families in Florida so we were worried, but Royal Caribbean always put our safety first and Captain Per was extremely informative, giving us updates as soon as he had them. A couple of days later they realized Port Canaveral would still be closed on Tuesday due to a direct hit by the hurricane, so they delayed the return another day. They made arrangements for us to spend an extra day in Cozumel and a day in Costa Maya (not in the original itinerary) so that we wouldn't have to sit at sea for 3 or 4 days waiting for the hurricane to pass through. All of this was at no cost to cruisers. Food: We tried to diversity our dining experience and eat at different venues. The food in the main dining room was really sub par.... we did not enjoy it much except for the formal night that had lobster. Desserts were very tasteless as was the food. We tried the Windjammer as well which had more selections but the taste and quality of the food was also not very desirable. So we considered specialty dining, something we had never done before. They offered a 50% discount on specialty dining on the extra sailing days and that was a huge motivator of our decision as well. Sabor was excellent and the food portions are huge, we even came back another day during lunch just for the chips, salsa and guacamole. We had lunch at Giovanni's Table on the last day and it was also great. But the best dining experience we had on board was dinner at Chops Grille. It was really one of the top dining experiences we have had EVER as a couple. The food was absolutely delicious - my husband had the filet mignon and I had the spicy garlic shrimp. The desserts were to DIE FOR. And service was also top notch - we will always dine at Chops Grille wherever available. Entertainment: We enjoyed all of the shows except for CATS, but I'm not much of a theater person anyway. The Headliner Show with El Gaucho was magnificent, we laughed so hard! The Love and Marriage Game is always a must in Royal Caribbean as well. Our cabin was a ocean view balcony on Deck 6 and we never had any issues with noise. It was close to mid ship so convenient to getting around the ship. This was our first experience onboard an Oasis Class Ship and we had a wonderful time. Already planning on taking our kids with us next year for some quality family time. Overall a great experience - despite the hurricane madness! Read Less

Cruise was very safe, Great Caption, kept us safe during Hurricane Irma, while on the Oasis of the Seas. Captain kept us well informed about he Hurricane and reassured us of our safety. THANK YOU Food was ok in the WindJammer.. Breakfast was the only great meal in the WindJammer.. Staterroom Attendent was awesome.. Very Hard working people. Port Stops: Hatti, Jamaica, Cozumel Mexico and Costa Mia, due to the storm. Lots of activities on the ship..Lots of singing and dancing.. Zip-lining, Ice skating, rock climbing, shows to see, clubs if you like that. I would like to warn people if buying jewelry, they will tell you that stones are real, even if they are man made.. If it seems to good to be true..IT IS.. If you pay with cash..Kiss it goodbye.. If you pay with credit card,and it is fake.. Bank will usually refund your money back for fraudulent purchase.

I choose this ship because of the size and comfort, the cruise staff was very nice and tried to please in ever way, to their ability. The ship was clean and neat, I loved the way they had you to check out towel and check in towel to keep them from laying around all over the ship/ Live band and dance training that was outstanding. I think all ships should have that as well. The only three things that bother me the most was food choice, and the taste of food that wasn't quit tolerant.Overall the ship was okay would do it again, but hoping they would improve on food choice and not make you pay extra. One thing I most add is buying jewelry from the ports, please don't unless you have a gemologist on hand when buying, because ever port is selling fake gem, diamonds rings, Tanzanite Rings and silver, within the safe area you shop. The business/shop will tell you it illegal for them to sell fake jewelry, and the only reason their price cheaper is because they don't have to pay the middle man like the cruise line and tax. They say if the cruise line find out we are selling fake jewelry they would band them. This is all a lie to get you to buy their fake jewelry. I am out of hundreds of dollars from these shops at the ports. I even had them appraised back in North Carolina and not worth the time you spent to buy them. The Cruise line should band this shops from doing business in the safe zone of the ports because they are robbing innocent hard working people out of their savings for special events in their lives (anniversary, engagements, birthdays, and just because) Sorry but we must stick together to illuminate these crooks from robbing our most precious days. The cruise line is wonderful but they must do more to stop these crooks, even those that maybe part of the issue within the cruise line when it come to jewelry selling. Enjoy your cruise but please don't buy unless you know what you truly is buying for your money. I should have been more careful myself but if i can help others from making the same mistake, that what am trying to do. Read Less

Loved the opportunity to dine in the Coastal Kitchen. The number of Specialty restaurants and their consistent quality was appreciated. The high quality and variety of the entertainment was remarkable. The Ship's captain was the most enjoyable we have ever had - he was very present to the guests and approachable. We hope to sail on the Symphony, as we understand he will be assigned to it. We enjoy our balcony a lot. We spend a few hours a day on it - reading. Our balcony had a table and chairs and one lounge chair... we asked our room attendant if he could bring us another lounge chair, he delivered one within the hour...he was very attentive to our needs the entire cruise. We also loved having our own coffee maker with starbucks coffee in our room. And noticed an upgrade to options for room service. Therefore, we ordered breakfast in our room most every morning because of the variety that is now offered. Read Less
