This was a Costco Travel Buyer's Choice cruise and that lots of add on's. This was our first time on the Oasis of the Seas. We have been on the sister ship, the Allure of the Seas twice before. The Oasis Dreams show was cancelled due to weather. The Comedy guests were ok. The Frozen ice show was great! We did not enjoy Cats and left during intermission.The Casino staff was very friendly as they took my money, lol. We do not like On-time dining, so we scheduled dinner at the same time with the same wait staff. For Excursions, we did the Jungle Buggy Adventure (Jesus and crew were fantastic) in Cozumel and the River rafting (Brenton was our wonderful guide) in Jamaica. In Labadee, we enjoyed the Costco add on's, Aqua park, water slide, coaster, floating mat and $25 beach credit. We did have an issue with the tram service then ended up walking back to the ship. In this particular incident, the tram passed the stop for the coaster ride and we had to ride all around the island back to the correct stop. On the way back to the ship, all trams were full, so we had to walk back to the boat. On board, we enjoyed the entertainment staff activities and did the flow rider, zip line, rock climb wall and mini golf. The wait time was not bad at all. I suspect the ship was at half capacity. We had a great time and would defiantly cruise this again. Read Less

The Oasis of the Seas is a huge ship. I booked it because of a sale, and a particularly cheap week was the week of my birthday. I went in with no real expectations except that it had to be better than being at work. It's just about your average cruise ship. Its big, there's zip lining and surfing (which I didn't do), and ice skating (which I only noticed was open twice, for 30 minutes every time. The pools weren't very big for the size of the ship, and I ended up lounging in the Solarium pool (but not at the chairs, Caribbean sun and a greenhouse environment was not good with the heat). The food was great though. Only 1 night did I not LOVE the menu, usually ordering 2 apps and entrees every night. The Windjammer had a great variety and crispy fries. The desserts were great. However, service was only ok. Dinner was slow (but our waiter was nice and and chatty, just a lot of downtime). At breakfast, one morning, the entire section of tables I was sitting in was forgotten about. We ordered food, but we waited 30 minutes before we left. And every time we ordered eggs, there was always a disclaimer it would take a few minutes. Bar service was always great. I had an interior let-them-choose cabin, and it was big for a cruise ship. We had space for a couch! However, again with service only being ok, our room was never completed by 2pm, and rarely again before 9pm. It wasn't a huge problem, but I thought it was strange. The 1st one was skipped one day completely. Also room was at the front of the boat, and the way the ship is designed, there is one hallway on either side of the ship, and since most rooms have a balcony, the hallways are long and narrow. Activities and entertainment on the ship weren't too bad. We did trivia 3 or 4 times a day, and the cruise director's staff was always great (especially Nick and Mo!!). Ice skating was rarely offered, I only remember seeing it 1 day, with 2 time slots, but I'm willing to believe I wasn't checking that closely. The shows were good, but you have to reserve them first. The shows were: Frozen in Time: Beautiful ice skating show. They take a break and let a guy draw the Tin Soldier in sand for a projector, and it was amazing. I could've watched him all day. The Headline Show: Jesse Hamilton was great. He was funny, and in his intro, he says the music isn't for everyone, and it's not, but it's a great variety and he was so, so funny. Cats: Skipped it. 2.5 hours (and got to get the early, so let's say 3) and I could only get reservation on Day 1. Spent time in an elevator with a guy who's comments were "What was that?" and "They did too many drugs in the 80s" In my opinion, all of the other RC shows would've been better (Hairspray, Grease, We Will Rock You, Mamma Mia!, and Saturday Night Fever). Come Fly With Me: Acrobats. I have NO IDEA what anyone was singing about, but the songs were familiar and sung brilliantly, and the gymnastics and acrobatics were insanely good. Aquashow: Got cancelled because of weather. We had the late show, and it would've been really nice if they had told us that the earlier show had been cancelled too. Weather ruined a lot of events at the aqua theater, so I can't say much about it at all. Read Less

We went as a family of 8 with ages ranging from 13 to 93. Our third cruise. Had been on Princess and Carnival before. Overall, it is an amazing ship. Well designed. Very stable. It is huge. The big main walking promenade and the 'central park' are great ideas. There is even a ice skating rink. The staff were excellent, as were the main shows. They had a full production of CATS. The ship was spotless overall. The staterooms are bigger than other ships and have a sofa the may be of sufficient size for a small child to sleep on. I think all outside rooms are ocean view with balcony. The inside rooms face central park and have balconies too. So no claustrophobia. We were on deck 14. It is a long walk from end to end of the ship. Activities: lots to do ranging from napkins folding classes to jewelry shows to bingo and the usual. There is of course a casino but as a non gambler, cannot comment on it. The spa and gym were big. My wife used it and said it was fantastic. Not free of course! The things we did not like: 1) A lot of pushing to buy drink packages and shop at stores. 2) A lot of nickel diming. For example, back of scenes tour was free on Princess. $150 on Oasis. Several classes were not free including guacamole making class. 3) usually there are movies in the main theater on a frequent basis but not on Oasis. And it was fuzzy since it was 3D. So if you could not find glasses, you could not see much. 4) The shore excursions we took were very meh and expensive. Recommend sticking with your own walk around agenda. 5) Usually there are educational events related to upcoming ports of call. None on Oasis. 6) The type of daytime on ship activities overall was not as diverse as I had seen on other ships except for the headline events which were amazing. 7) Food was abundant but the diversity of choices was not as extensive as Carnival or Princess. Taste wise was definitely a notch lower. The ship overall, is one large weekend at Vegas on water. It was more expensive than average cruises. I would recommend it but I wish they would include more activities in the price and not nickel dime. Read Less

This was a 52 day cruise from Southhampton, England to Bejing, China, thru the Med, Suez Canal and lots of stops. The good: Wonderful ship, great interior design with 110 volts and 220v. The shower and shower head were adjustable and removable. Great for big people like me. The ship is bigger than our biggest aircraft carrier. (1100 feet long with 16 decks) Sport courts, rock climbing walls and a bumper car arena. Basket ball anyone. Several pool and lots of jacuzzis. They have gone to resturant style dining, no large fantail dining room. You can go upstairs but never recognize it as a buffet. Super food. Go slow on a long trip. Great gym. The cabin design was spacious and utilized all the space with overhead bins on the bed. Biggest small cabin in the fleet. We were in a Verandah suite. Entertainment was typical "ship", Dining was memorable because even though you switched dining venues nightly, you always had the same waiter. Each of the 4 free dining venues had different food. There were also 5 pay as you wish resturants. The bad: expense: wine and drinks are the highest in the fleet.--$10 for a cocktail, $8 for a beer. A room bottle on HAL is $40, on RCI it is $65. They are liquor Nazi's so don't sneak unless you are humiliation proof. Tours are really expensive (use Aviator). The electronic wizardry will really wow you. They were able to board and disembark faster than Symphony, Serenity, or Prisendam and that was with 4500 passengers. Beautiful ship, I would go again, and plan not to have a drink. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we were on this ship before and loved it. This time, not so much. Embarkation was very easy. Debarkation was too. You would think on a ship this size it would take longer, but it has always been better than on any other ship. You had to make reservations ahead of time for all the shows. When we cruise, we like to be spontaneous, not on such a strict schedule. The ship is still awesome but next time we will take a smaller one that is not so regimented. We had an ocean view cabin. It could use more storage space. Our cabin steward was great. We asked that our ice bucket be always full and he saw to it that it was. The common areas are very beautiful. There are a lot of activities on board. The shore excursion pages are very easy to read and to book. I really like the way the have the pictures that are taken on board the ship set up in the photo gallery. They are much easier to find now. We were on the Western Caribbean itinerary. We didn't do any excursions because we have been on this itinerary so many times. Read Less

will begin my report for this cruise which was 7 nights out of Ft. Lauderdale to Labadee, Haiti, Falmouth, Jamaica and Cozumel. First of all we like normal flew in a day early and stayed at the Hyatt Place in Ft. Lauderdale. We had to fly into Miami as we could not get a return from FLL to ORD until like 1700 and did not want to sit around all day and MIA had a return to ORD at 1235. We taxied into the Hyatt which was around $80.00 so its a bit costly but the shuttle bus was only about $10.00 less with other stops so we chose the taxi. I must say the service at the Hyatt was excellent and we took their shuttle to the pier for about $7.00 pp so not bad. Once in port we had to wait a while to actually get onto the ship and I was not impressed at all by the personnel there. Lets just say CS seems to be lacking in their training but of course they are not RCI employees. Once we checked in the courtesy kicked in. It took about 45 mins. to get onto the ship and our cabin was not yet ready but actually it was finished ahead of the announced time. We walked around this marvel of a ship and had lunch at the Park Cafe in the Central Park section, just some salads as we were not so hungry. We had a balcony cabin on the 9th. deck and the first thing I noticed was that the balcony was bigger than what we had last May on the NCL Getaway. It turned out to take a while to get used to all the areas on this huge ship and we seemed to have discovered something new every day. We were assigned my time dining as first seating was not available when we booked. On the first night I requested it from the Maitre'd and that was honored a day later. However that first night we shared a table with a couple from FLA. and they too wanted first seating so actually we were able to get a fixed time at the my time dining restaurant, American Icon with them so it was very good of RCI to meet our requests that way. I was so awe struck by this ship that I forgot we had reservations that night for the Oasis of Dreams show but we were able to book it for a later day. We happened upon a preview of the comedy show and saw three performers and I really got some good laughs from them. The rest of the first day was spent just checking out the ship especially Boardwalk and the Promenade. Wow! Like I tell all the people I know who have not cruised you don't know what you are missing. Many seem to think that you just sit around all day and there is nothing to do. We got a good nights rest and I must say that for the week we were on this ship detection of any motion was just a few times and it was next to nothing. I suppose 225k tons of a ship makes the ride very smooth. Ok so now its day two. Its formal night and as we had reservations for Cats we decided on an early dinner at Giovannis. I had the filet migon which was pretty good and Sue had a pasta dish which she was not too pleased with unfortunately. I tried it and liked it but it wasn't up to her taste. However the desserts were and we had the tiramisu and the canolis and those hit the spot. So we now went to see Cats and frankly it was very hard to follow. I suppose if you knew the story line ahead of time then yes it would have been good to see. However the people in our row actually left ahead of intermission including us. I heard several comments like this from others who saw it so it seems it was a hit or a miss. later on we had a chance to meet some of the ships performers and I must say what they did they did well but it was not for us. They did say RCI typically will run the show for 6 yrs. and they they spent something like 10 mil. on the stage alone. So lets talk about the entertainment on the ship. We saw a group called Abbacadabra which dod all Abba songs and that we like. It was mentioned that Abba was once offered 1 billion, yes 1 billion for a reunion tour but turned it down. Wow. They put on a fun, entertaining show and even added Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen just to show off their versatility. We saw Come Fly With Me which was a wonderful show featuring acrobats and gymnasts, song and dance and they were all amazing. Before the shows the performers with their resumes are featured on the theatre screen so you can see their backgrounds. Most have a long list of credits and some have been national champions in their respective fields. It makes me think that their is a ton of great talent out there. The performers are from mainly the UK, the USA and eastern Europe. After this show we were able to see the ice show at the last second and so that was a treat and again this was a great show and was more geared to kids. However you are on vacation so hey be a kid!! The water show was called the Oasis of Dreams and is performed at the back of the boat where they have a poll with hydraulic lifts to adjust its level. Here you see more gymnasts, acrobats and high divers. The max hight is about 58 feet and we were awestruck by how ell this show was performed. We missed the actually comedy club show but we did see that preview on day one so its not like we missed out too much. I was not able to get a reservation once on the ship and we tried to get in line for a non-reserved seat but it wasn't in our luck. Oh well. There are a number of venues for smaller acts including Latin music at Boleros, a two level lounge featuring a live band at Dazzles which was on our deck actually and that we sort of discovered by accident, a country venue called Globe and Castle (I think), the Scooner bar and a few others. Karaoke is there too for your amusement. Really if you can't see one of the main shows there is still plenty to do and to see. A word about formal night. It seems that in the cruise industry there are fewer people following the suggested attire and some people dressed up but others did not even come close. Now part of this could be that we embarked from a casual port, FLL. Last yr. on the Diamond Princess out of Yokohama I did see that many more people followed the suggested attire code for formal night. Ok so lets talk about the food which is always a subjective issue depending on your expectations and standards. I really don't expect fine dining and think its unrealistic to do so and the ship has to feed thousands of people. I do expect "good" food and at least good service. As mentioned above we ate one night in the fee restaurant Giovannis which was like $25.00 pp paid when the reservation was made preboarding. I like my filet though my wife was not too crazy about her pasta dish. I made this reservation only to accommodate our Cats reservation and all in all for the extra cost it was just ok. We really liked Tuscan Grill and especially the Asian fusion restaurant Silk on Celebrity and would be happy to pay more for them, especially Silk. Would we go to Giovannis again just for itself? Nope. It just did not make that much of an impression. So how was the food in the MDR? Not bad at all and it met my expectations which again are lower than a fine dining experience which we hope to have Saturday in Chicago. :). My entrees were fine and Sue had Indian food which she also liked. One night however they serve curried lobster and she is not a fan of seafood but hey its lobster and I was more than happy to help her with it. We did have lobster one night but one of our tablemates is originally from Cape Cod and said it was puny compared to what she grew up eating. Oh well. I did order steak one night and it was prepared how I wanted it and though it did have some rather tough areas it over all was pretty good. I do not know where RCI gets their beef but for me it seem quality wise close to USDA choice, perhaps a notch below but it wasn't bad. Really I had no complaints about our meals and the desserts well all pretty good. No issues there. We always ate breakfast in the MDR and that was pretty good too. We once went to Johnny Rockets for breakfast and lets just say thats done and we are not likely at all to go again. The breakfast here is free but otherwise its $7.00 pp and I just can't see paying for a diner experience on such a nice ship. The park cafe is free and we had a salad on day one and it was OK and the buffet restaurant had a good selection of food but hey on a vacation we want to be served so we had lunch a few times there and breakfast on debarkation day and that was it. Pizza at Sorrentos in the promenade was rather limp. The crust was doughy and for us it should be crisp so once was enough. One nice feature on the Getaway was O'Sheehans pub which had some good casual food. I don't think RCI can match that unless they beef up the menu at say the Globe and Atlas venue in the Promenade which would be doable I think. We had lunch one day in the solarium. This offers lighter fare and has fresh fruit, a salad bar and one or two entrees. Sue had the tacos one day and said were pretty good but the solarium itself is really nice. This would be our place to be if we ever sailed this ship or one of her sisters again. We were there one day when it was raining and its mostly enclosed so we stayed dry and funny think is it was not crowded at all even with it raining down on the pools. Here is one area where NCL's Getaway falls was short. They basically had one pool for 4 k passengers unless you were in the Haven for way more $$. However the Oasis had I think 5 adult pools and at least that many hot tubs so it never felt crowded. There were also several bars on the pool deck and the service was very good. They do have fresh popped popcorn but at $2.50 for a small box, c'mon man thats too much. I am not saying it should be free but I think $1.25 is enough. This ship is by far the best we have ever been on in so far as design and features go. Its no wonder that several people we met onboard have done multiple cruises on this ship and we hope to be like them one day. In fact I told our son that I would pop for him and by then his wife to go with us one day and that we would pop for it. Thats how much we loved this ship. We want them to see it. However their bar bill will be all theirs. :D. Now as for debarkation that was terrible. First of all we purchased transfers on board from RCI to shuttle us to MIA. We assembled on time and were supposed to leave at 0845 but by 0900 we were still in limbo. I asked a crew member whats up and he said customs was slow and that we could leave but that our bags may not be ready. Well that turned out to be a bunch of malarkey. All bags were there but where? We matriculated thru customs and went to the section our bags were to be in. No bags. In fact no bags with section 20 labels were in section 20. Instead there were bags label with # 23. I asked two people where our bags were and thy had no idea. Finally the 3rd. person I asked pointed to an unmarked section up against a wall and lo and behold there were our bags. But this was nothing compared to the shuttle. There were buses for MIA and FLL so we of course got on the MIA bus and waited. 40 mins went by and nothing so I asked the baggage loader when we will be going. He said "soon" I asked him like how long in minutes and he glared at me and said "soon" Thats it. I asked another guy who said "don't worry about it" . So 15 mins. later we still weren't moving and the bus was nearly full. Then they decided to load a WC person, no issues there and his 5-6 family members with all their luggage including a huge case for some sort of musical instrument so that took more time. Finally after more that an hour we left and guess what these guys went to FLL airport first! Man like I said there are buses for FLL so why they went there first I will never know. By this time people are fuming and I and another passenger from inside the bus and I called RCI and told them what was happening and that RCI had to pay any fees if due to their incompetence we missed our flight. We finally got to MIA and then dumb and dumber locked us in the bus until they could unload the luggage which they did not do for their 1st stop for AA at MIA. We are at UAL now. We finally got off the bus at about 1135 after getting on initially at around 0935. The other guy who had called RCI from the bus had a 1200 flight so I imagine he missed it. We had a long walk to the UAL counter and thank God there was no line. We checked in and then had another long walk to the gate which we arrived at about 5-10 mins. before boarding began. Fortunately our bags arrived with us but this was no way to treat customers, especially for how uncaring they were. The guy who kept say "soon" to me tried to lay on some Caribbean charm while in route but no one said word to him. Passengers were fed up. The smartest thing they did was not asking for tips. I did report all this to RCI and specifics like the bus company name and the bus number which they actually asked me for and told them I would never use their shuttle service again. Unfortunate ending to a very nice time on a wonderful ship So next time no shuttles. We will figure out another way. We actually purchased a future cruise while on board too. Its for the Ovation of the Seas, an Anthem class ship which is still being built. This cruise is for Nov. 2016 for 12 days out of Tianjin with stops in China, Okinawa, HK and Singapore. Read Less

My husband and I went on this cruise as an anniversary trip. I had been on Oasis of the Seas before and Allure of the Seas twice (to me they are the EXACT same ship!). ENTERTAINMENT: I love Oasis and Allure because of all the options for entertainment and activities. The cruise director, Ricky Matthews is very fun and introduced every show we attended. We only stayed for 1/2 of CATS, it was just too long and with no real plot, my husband and I got bored. We did see the headliner for the week, Mo5aic, twice, they were great! The ice skating show was better than Allure's in our opinion and we thought the aqua theater shows were great too. There were several comedians also and we enjoyed their show one evening. PORTS OF CALL/EXCURSIONS: We actually did not get off the boat at all; we had been to all the ports multiple times over the past several years so we didn't see the need to get off and do the same excursions. We enjoy staying on the boat and getting our choice of pool chairs and the pool all to ourselves. DINING: It is unfortunate that so many places require an additional payment, however, my husband and I are simple eaters at home so cruise meals are better than anything we normally prepare ourselves so we were happy eating breakfast at the Windjammer or Johnny Rockets (free for breakfast), park cafe for lunch, and the main dining room for dinner. As always we enjoyed the soft serve yogurt, pizza, and cafe promenade for snacks. For first time cruisers though, it is a little confusing figuring out which places are included in your original price and which ones are extra. We did purchase the coke package. SERVICE: I love being catered to on cruises. Our dining room staff (Ronald and Tricia) were great and our room was always kept up. I always noticed crew members cleaning (vacuuming, dusting, cleaning windows, painting, etc.). For having over 6,000 patrons on board, in my opinion, the ship is very well taken care of. CABIN: This year my husband and I decided to get a balcony room that overlooked Central Park. It was nice but next time I think I would either pay a little more and get an ocean balcony room or just go back to the "caves" of the interior rooms. We enjoyed letting light into our room but I am not sure the price was worth it. FINAL COMMENTS: I will say that we are normally spring break cruisers. All five of my previous cruises have been in early April. I noticed several differences between spring break and summer cruises. One: (totally obvious but still...) VERY HOT. The weather difference was crazy. I know it seems dumb but it was A LOT hotter. AND HUMID. This caused the pools to be very crowded at times. Two: MORE PEOPLE. There were just way more people than I ever remember being on the boat. The line for the flow rider was long, sometimes twenty people (if you want to do the flow rider with no wait then go first thing in the morning on days when you are in a port---thats when we got to do the flow rider with no waiting). It was hard to find chairs both in the shade and in the sun if you are a late riser. Overall we loved our vacation. I have realized there will always be unhappy patrons and it is impossible to please everyone! Royal Caribbean has always been a great cruise line for us and our experiences have caused us to be loyal to them for the time being. Read Less

This was our second week on back to back cruises. The first was NCL Getaway. READ post from NCL Getaway. We booked Johns Car Service # 954-303-8747 from POM to Cruise Terminal and arrived at 10AM. We had no wait time checking our luggage or getting our Sea Pass Card. Very efficient. Once on board we immediately headed to Park Café where we knew it would get crowded. We feel it was a better choice than the Windjammer Café. We were able to get into our room a little after 1PM and all our luggage was there. Room # 12224 was spacious but we had an issue with the room not being clean. We called and our room steward Stanley made sure everything was cleaned. The ship is very well designed and easy to navigate thru out the different floors, but everyone must be patient with the wait for elevators with 6000 people on the ship. We bought the Replenish and Premium beverage package and enjoyed all the bars and staff. We are not much into drinking but these two weeks we enjoyed ourselves. FOOD We did all Specialty dinning. We received 30 percent in onboard credit for booking 3 specialty dining venues. 150 Park- very limited menu food was good but will not go back Giovanni's Table- Great service and delicious food Sabor Good food and priced right Chops grill- we did this two nights amazing service and food Solarium Bistro- Amazing main course So many choices to choose from I gained 14 pounds on back to back cruises and with all the alcohol I consumed I figured at least 20 pounds LOL ENTERTAINMENT- CATS- Left before intermission just was too long and repetitive for us COMEDY Awesome Aqua Theater Very Good Show HEADLINNER- Earl Turner very entertaining COME FLY WITH ME Awesome FROZEN IN TIME Just wasn't for us THE SHIP ITSELF I found it to be very easy to get around, not too crowded or too big. We enjoyed the Solarium, shopping, bars, Boardwalk, Central Park, and the Promenade. I did not participate in rock climbing or flow rider but looked like the kids enjoyed it. EXCURSIONS I would like to mention a private excursion we did in Jamaica with Liberty Tours Jamaica. The tour was to Blue Hole and horse back riding in the ocean just the 2 of us. They are very friendly and give a very informative description of the island and the people. This was our favorite stop and excursion of the cruise. Go to Libertytoursjamaica.com to learn more about this company. They are truly a step above everyone else. OUR ROOM 12224 an ocean view balcony. We enjoyed this location and the cabin was nice. Our room steward Stanley was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. SPA we did the mud room and Jacuzzi room. This was nice but we felt facilities needed an upgrade. ON AND OFF THE SHIP GETTING ON Very fast GETTING OFF I would recommend as early as possible we had a late flight so chose to leave later and it took 1 hour to exit. We enjoyed this cruise and booked another cruise in the future for RCCL and NCL. We feel that for anyone to get the most out of a Cruise you have to Book everything in advance. All dining, all shows, all excursions, room location and book early, check rates often and decide what is best for you. Try not to compare other Cruise lines because they all have negatives. We enjoyed both ships for different reasons and because we planned, we had a great time. We paid for what we felt was going to make our Cruise experience complete and stayed away from upsells like photos and art work that didn't matter to us. We did a comparison on the NCL Getaway site for anyone interested. Happy Cruising to all and hope this review helps. Read Less

This ship was absolutely amazing! There was SO much to do & we were always on the move. The employees on this ship are PHENOMENAL. They provide amazing service (as all Royal Caribbean ships do). Best service I have had yet has been on all Royal Caribbean lines! The entertainment was amazing! I highly recommend booking all shows before the cruise as they are extremely popular. Comedy show & come fly with me were two of my favorites. The cruise director Ricky was AWESOME and made this cruise so much fun. Definitely go see "The Quest" & "Love and Marriage".....awesome!! Specialty dining was nothing special and have to say I was quite disappointed by it. I thought the free dining rooms had much better food. I wouldn't bother paying the extra money for the specialty dining. If I were to recommend one of the dining options I would say Giovanni's just to switch it up, but there are plenty of free options. Also, soda packages seemed to be a waste as all the dining rooms had non-alcoholic drinks available for free (windjammer/any buffet). If you are going to be drinking alcohol I would get the drink package as it truly is worth it. Read Less

The day before: We arrived a day before stayed at the Hilton beach resort, the hotel was nice but without many stores/restaurants nearby. We did walked (20 minutes) to the Galleria mall for some shopping and lunch (PFC) , the mall was quite empty but with good deals at the stores. The beach near the hotel looked nice although we have not checked the facilities as we figured we will have enough of that during the cruise. We did bought some wine and water at the Publix shop across from the mall (very cheap prices). Day 1: FLL I have asked the hotel to reserve us some transportation (as they don’t have shuttles to the cruise port). I have been told I can use taxi or VIP transportation which will cost around 20/30$ for two people, We went with the second option as I remembered from last year the horrible traffic getting to the Allure of the seas, thinking that a taxi can cost much more in case of traffic. We asked for the ride at 11 AM , due to the hotel error or the company they used the transport arrived only at 11:30. The ride was very fast; it looked as if the Oasis was the only ship that day at the port. Took us 7 minutes until we were given our suitcases. We went inside the building and waited in the gold line, mind, It might be that the regular line was going faster as more open windows per deck were serving this line. We waited about 15 minutes + 5 minutes to create our sea pass. After we got the sea pass we continued to the second floor trying to guess how much time we will need to wait until allowed on the ship, to our surprise it was zero , we were allowed to continue to the ship immediately which was very nice. As it was only 11:45 and we knew the rooms are not ready before 1 PM we went to find something to eat. As many recommended we avoided the lines in the buffet and went to get a nice salad at the park Café , there were some lines but not too much , we even found a nice place to seat and eat. At 1 PM we went to the room to put our carry on. Our room was in deck 7 at the front of the ship which was good for us. We had the muster drill at 4 PM which really symbol the beginning of the cruises as it was the last “official” thing for this week. Dinner – Windjammer market place. Day 2 Nassau Breakfast early at the Windjammer as the ship went into Nassau , As we read about Nassau at Sunday we understood there is no good reason to try and get from the ship very early as it mostly closed so we were waiting until 9:30 AM. We did not book any excoriation for Nassau as the ship was planned to disembark at 2 PM which really does not give enough time to almost anything. Yes, RC offer several excoriation but they seemed overpriced (considering the time we have in port) mainly the one that went to Atlantis. We were staying at the Atlantis resort before and enjoyed it very much, maybe if we had full day over there it would have make sense. We went around the port , checked some stores and bought several souvenirs before going back to the ship , Please mind Nassau officials going back to the port asks to see photo ID card and not just the sea pass (it was the only port that required it) . Lunch in the buffet again (in general, I will not recommend the Windjammer during lunch as quality is not that impressing). We went to the Aqua show which was very nice (although I am still trying to figure out what the main character was doing there) , I guess it can be an impressing show if it is the first time you see it so make sure you see it. Day 3 sea day After breakfast (Park café , excellent do it your own bagels) we went to the cruise critic meeting , we got a small gift in the door and listen to a speech from the event manager plus participate in the ruffle (did not won but it was nice), I do recommend to participate it. We went to eat at Sabor , I must say it was excellent , we took the 19 $ deal (one is more than enough for two people) got the heavenly guacamole that is prepared in front of your eyes, fresh Tacos (the best I had), Calamari and Shrimps all were very good . for dissert we got the dissert box that was more than enough for two people. Really I cannot recommend enough this restaurant We went to see Cats at 2 PM , well I tried , I really tried to enjoy (and avoiding the bad review I was reading here) but something was missing there, I don’t know if it was the dark lighting or the scenery that never change. I felt very sorry for the performer as they were good dancer and singers, I also appreciate the fact that RC were bringing a full Broadway show but maybe it is not the one that goes well in a cruise. Day 4 ST Thomas After quick breakfast we went down to the port, getting out of the ship was very quick without any delays or issues. We took a shared taxi (4$ PP) from the port to downtown (5 minutes ride, you can walk the distance if it is not too hot). We went into few stores bought some shirts and looked on the duty free prices. There was some band playing in the main square and some food festival. We went back to the ship as we booked shore excursion and wanted to eat something before it (Park Café this time). For excursion we took the Megen bay beach. It was described as two hour in the Megen beach including a stop for photo ops, well the driver did not stopped for any photos unless slowing to 10 MPH during the time you can look over the bay consider as one. The beach itself is very nice and not really crowded, we did try to get far from the main area to avoid any crowd but it required only five minutes’ walk to find a quiet place. During the time we were there no one tried to sell us anything or bother us in any way (as I did read might happens here). For dinner we went to the main dining room. We had my time dining reservation but apparently so many others did so we had to wait in line for about 15 minutes and agreed to share our table (which we did not mind at all). In parallel to our line there was the line of people that did not have reservation; this line seems to go faster for some reason. Day 5 – ST Marten: For day 5 we took early excursion (9 AM , for me at vacation its considered early) the ultimate Island tour. The ride is in air conditioned bus , it start with a 30 minutes ride to the French side of the island and stops at a small market for five minutes photo ops over the oriental beach. After 15 minutes of additional driving we got to Margot were we got around an hour to shop or do whatever we want. We used this time to go to Sarafinas the French bakery as we wanted to taste the famous macrons. There was a long line when we arrived (20 minutes) but finally it was our turn to order. Beside the macrons we ordered an apple pie (that looked very good, actually everything there looked very good). The macrons were nice (very big), not the best ones we were eaten but certainly the best one we were eaten in the Caribbean. After the Sarfinas we went to board the boat as part of the tour, that was my favorite part very nice scenery of the lagoon and the area including a short view of the famous airport. The tour included free drinks (fruit punch, soft drink, beers and whatever goes with Rum, no limits. When the boat brought us back to land (the Dutch side) we had the buss take us back to the ship (including an option to stop at downtown for whoever wanted). We got a very detailed explanation on each gas stopped that we passed , the prices, the history and any other background , which make me think that or our tour guide family is in the gas stations business, gas stations are the most important business in the Island or it is just very boring Island .. Overall it is not very active tour but gives a nice view on the Island and recommended for first timers. For evening we went to Sabor again (as we loved it on the first time) we again, did not disappointed Day 6 - Sea day My spouse went to surf the flowrider for the first time and enjoyed every minute of it , I was focusing more on important things like sleeping. We went on the pool deck that was not that full as you expect from a sea day , you could find a chair quite easy. We spent some time in the promenade and in general had a relaxed day. During the evening we went again to the main dining room , this time lines were ridiculous long , mainly the line for people that had reservations (our lines) it went all the way to the elevators , I guess the fact that everyone knew its Lobster night contributed to the situation. I decided to make a test and we went to the non-reservation line that looked much smaller and what do you know, after 10 minutes we were seated and ordering our food. For sure something is not working in the time dining system, why to reserve if it is faster not to … I hope RC will check it and do the right adjustments. The food in the dining room was ok , for sure it has better disserts than the marketplace. After dinner we went to see the “come fly with me show” it was very nice, amazing scenery and excellent acrobatic act, don’t miss this one. Day 7 – sea day Breakfast at the market place (they added some nice smoothies which was nice). There were some offers in the on board shops (the regular 10-20$ watch sets , 10 $ T-shirts and some other offers) We went to see the Ice show, another very nice show; we liked the custom, the music and the performance (although one of the dancers did stumble twice). We went back to pack our stuff to avoid last minute packing. Day 8 FLL We used the valet service (very very recommended, 20$ PP) as we had a flight with united from FLL airport. We went for one last breakfast (that was limited comparing to the ones before) packed the carry on and went out from the ship around 8 AM. Going out from the ship was very quickly (five minutes) and another 15-20 minutes in the custom area. We took a taxi to the airport (12$). The suitcases arrived perfectly to our target airport. We saw that united also added the priority tags to the suitcases so everything worked very well with this service . It was a very nice cruise Read Less

We had an easy embarkation upon arrival. We got to the port around 11:30am, got into a short line, and was on board within 20 minutes! RC did a great job building this terminal. We immediately went up to the Solarium for lunch - there was no wait. Food overall was good, but if you want the "unhealthy" stuff, go elsewhere (buffet, Sorrentos). We were able to enter our cabin, 9727, at 1pm. The sofa could use some cleaning otherwise the room was fine. Our cabin steward was very helpful and attentive - she even brought me two extra pillows to accommodate my sleeping position after having major back surgery two years ago. We had great waiters in the dining room! The pumpkin seed rolls were great - wish I could find some here at home. My only complaint about dinner was the last evening - selection and food wasn't that great. The seafood tasted like it was frozen Seapak seafood! Johnny Rockets was really good - all you can eat for $6.95 pp. We also ate at Chops Grille - excellent and well worth the extra money for the evening. A Micheal Kors shop opened on board. Women herded into the small room like cows on crack! Almost cleaned the place out - they made their sales that day! Parents: ship personnel are not responsible for watching your children at the pool. KEEP AN EYE ON THEM! A small child almost drowned on this cruise. Another passenger saw the child at the bottom of the pool, jumped in, and performed CPR. Luckily, the child survived.... RC was gracious enough to refund our excursion for Cozumel. We had a beach day scheduled but it rained. The beach at Labadee was great. There is a shuttle to take you to the other end as there are two areas for lounging and BBQ. We weren't aware of the shuttle until it was too late - the first area does not allow swimming due to rocks in the water. You have to go to the second area if you want to swim. We purchased liquor in Jamaica - three bottles. RC took the bottles upon embarkation and marked the wrong cabin number on the box!!! Folks, make sure you double check what they write on the box before you walk away. It took them several hours after liquor delivery on the last night but they did find the liquor. Luckily the cabin it was placed in didn't think of it as a free gift! We chose the self-assist walk-off upon arrival back in Ft. Lauderdale. Although early (6am), it was great! We walked off and right through customs. Cabs waiting to take you right to the airport. Had I known we'd be as early as we were off the ship, I would have booked an earlier flight. We followed the 4-hour guideline (11:20am flight) and had to sit at the airport for quite a while. Overall, a great and relaxing cruise.... Read Less

The service was excellent we met wonderful people. The ship was not as wow as her sister ship the Allure of the seas we travel the year before. Cabin was excellent the balcony with ocean view is worth the extra money. We dine in the dining room everyday dressing up for diner is part of cruising. The entertainment is very good all the shows and the musical. Excursions we good but for their private island in Haiti's labadee was the worst place to go if you didn't book excursions on the good side, the beach was full of Corel sticking out of the sand and the sea. No shade to talk about and the food was dry and no flavory. The activities were good lot of fun. Embarkation was long we had a little sore throat so we had to weight for the nurse to check on us. Disembark was very smooth. Book Adventure of the Seas for March Southern Caribbean ten night. We only cruise with royal Caribbean int. Read Less

The Norovirus struck but I will circle back to that. We flew in the morning of the cruise and since the airport is so close to the cruise terminal we jumped in a cab and were at the terminal in 15 minutes. Just a tip... It is far less expensive to take a cab vs. the transfers the cruise line offers. Check in was a breeze but we were a little early to board the ship so we grabbed a seat and began boarding at about 11:30 in the morning. Had lunch in the Windjammer and was off to explore the ship a bit. We had sailed on Allure of the Seas about 18 months earlier and to be honest the ships are pretty much identical with the exception of a hot dog stand on the boardwalk (Allure has it while Oasis does not.) I have been on many cruises and have often heard the expression that people that take cruises are newlyweds or nearly dead. In this case, the scales were heavily tilted to the nearly dead category. We are 37 and 38 respectively so we fit into neither category and were certainly a minority. The older population is not normally something that bothers me but since the popularity of the motorized scooter has exploded recently it is a bit of a problem. There are 24 passenger elevators on the ship and that seems like quite a bit but they are only located in 2 spots on the ship so elevator usage is a premium. Once you dive out of the way of these motorized terrors and add the size of these scooters in the elevators you would often wait for 2 or 3 elevators just to find space. Usually after 5 years of service the ships start to show their age but Oasis is in excellent shape! The cabin was neat and fully functional. When we sailed on Allure we had a cabin overlooking the boardwalk but decided to go with the balcony cabin overlooking the ocean and definitely prefer the ocean view. The bed itself was a bit worn and uncomfortable but manageable. I have read some reviews that people have found the quality of the food in the dining rooms has deteriorated in recent years but I found everything delicious! This is probably the only cruise I have ever taken where I order a piece of meat as medium and it actually arrives to the table as medium. We had my time dining but had the option to be seated with the same wait staff on several occasions. Francis and Dennis were exceptional! We did run into one problem with the reservations. We made our dinner reservations online weeks in advance but were dismayed when we arrived for dinner one night and found no table available. It is a little frustrating that we make reservations well in advance yet those that do not have reservations were seated ahead of us. We waited and were finally seated but the next night the head waiter arrived at our table with a bottle of champagne to apologize for the problem. We did eat at both Giovanni’s and Chops Grill and found the experience absolutely excellent. The food and service was well worth the cover charge. Our cabin steward was excellent! The mark of a good cabin steward is one that is pretty much invisible. We would leave the cabinat different times every day and would return to find the cabin in pristine condition. He was more than accomodating for special request. He was excellent! We have been on this itinerary several times so we decided to just stay onboard during the stop in Nassau. The only thing in Nassau worth seeing is Atlantis and we were only there until 2:00 so it was not worth getting off the ship. In St Thomas we took a ship sponsored excursion and we did the BOSS underwater adventure. We have done this on previous trips to St. Thomas and will do it again if we ever get back. It’s such a great time! I highly recommend this. When we arrived in St. Marteen the weather appeared a bit questionable but we decided to go into town to wander a bit before our “Afternoon Beach Break” excursion. We went back to the ship, changed for our excursion and when we went outside to meet the tour it was showering a bit but stopped. Black clouds had rolled in. Realistically the cruise line should have cancelled the tour but since they are motivated for the most part by money only they continued with the tour. We spent 30 minutes on a bus to the beach only to arrive and find our lounge chairs just in time for the skies to open up. We decided to have lunch to avoid the rain. We went to beach side restaurant and I ordered a salad with grilled chicken and my wife had a cheeseburger with fries and a bottle of water. We nearly fell over when we got the bill for nearly $90.00 Between the cost of the tour and lunch this ended up being an expensive waste of a rainy afternoon. Late Thursday afternoon my wife began feeling sick and it only got worse. First thing in the morning we were in the infirmary and they gave us some pills and sent us on our way. Pills did not work and she just got sicker. 3 hours later we were back in the infirmary for IV fluids and blood work. 3 hours after that we were back in the infirmary for more IV fluids and medications after my wife’s blood pressure dropped quite a bit. The medical staff was very pleasant and professional but the illness was absolutely horrible. We have taken over a dozen cruises and my wife has been inflicted with the Norovirus twice, both times on Royal Caribbean cruises. I think we are done with cruising for quite some time. I encourage everyone who reads this review to practice proper sanitary measures. Simply wash your hands!!!!! It is the easiest way to prevent these illness’ from happening. It seems every time I used a public restroom on the ship at least ½ half the men left the restroom without washing their hands.   Read Less

We have cruise before but this was our first time on RCCL. We chose the OofS since we wanted to try a mega-ship, , get some much needed sun and also try RCCL to see if it was something we may want to try again.see what the rave was about It was big. Very big. Too big.Too busy. Like an amusement park that floats. It is easier to say what we didn't like rather than the other way round. First, being charged for every thing that on other lines are normally included. A $5.00 fresh OJ. Only did that once. Some coffees and water. Nickle and dime to the Nth degree. Second, smoking in some of the lounges. Dazzles comes first to mind. As an ex-smoker, the idea of smoking/non-smoking sections in an area with no specific ventilation is ridiculous. Same as having a peeing corner in a public pool. It goes everywhere eventually. Also smoking areas next to the pools. Stupid comes to mind there Third. RCCL says safety is a major concern. I say a ship crew member on the after crane mount there with no harness,no railings around the crane and no sentry. Remember, the employer should practice due diligence regarding workplace safety for passengers and crew. Will we return to the OofS and RCCL ? Most likely not. Am I being picky, possibly. Other than some WOW factors, I'll spend my money elsewhere. We liked the MDR. Food was not as good as our last cruise lines, but the hardworking staff made up for it and so did our tablemates. The Windjammer was good too though at times very crowded. The cabin was fine, nothing special. The attendant,Freddy from Columbia was excellent. Central Park is truly a sight to see. The specialty restaurants, 150 Central, Giovannie's, Zumi's and Chops are all worth a visit. The shows are OK. Just OK. However, the aqua theater is something that is a must to see. These are jut mu opinions. I suggest anyone thinking of going on the OofS, read about the ship and talk to people who have been on it first. Not all is as in the brochures. I must mention that for such a large ship in fairly calm seas, it moves. Not a lot, but as much as ships much smaller than it. I could feel it. Maybe just me. Read Less

Friends had sailed on the Oasis, and not as experienced cruisers as we are, so we were a little hesitant to believe their accolades when they returned. But, they were right! Easy embarkation. Hard to believe with so many passengers, but it was simple, easy. Security was less than easy and searching our carry-on was careless, almost rude, by the officer. Nothing found other than the allowed 2 bottles of wine and shrink-wrapped 12 bottles of water, carried on by itself. Our cabin was available so off we went. It was what was expected. Nicely appointed, nothing luxurious but typical. The closet is very close to the couch and with the bypass doors, it's impossible for two to access clothes, shoes and shelves at same time. Princess has much better layout of closet area as does Celebrity. One of the best mattresses we've slept on while cruising. Tons of hot water, sometimes had to turn to cold so could use sink. Oh....the sink! What a joke. Teeny, tiny! Shower was nice and the "tube" wasn't claustrophobic. The balcony was fine, but miss the high back chairs to relax in. The food is ok, some nights better than others. Don't miss lobster night, since the tails are nice sized, not as small as what Princess serves. We ordered more since they were so good. We did dine at Chops and thought it was wonderful...pretty close to a Ruth's Chris experience. Now the find of the ship, if you like roast beef, is the Park Cafe located in Central Park, deck 8. They have a wet roast beef sandwich served on a crusty roll with caraway seed and sea salt to knock you out! Rare, tender and flavorful. Top with choice of horseradish or mustard. NOT TO BE MISSED if you like a good roast beef sandwich for lunch. No matter where we were on the ship, lunch was roast beef. By last day my husband had 4 slices and I had 3 on mine. Good coleslaw and nice selection of other pre-dished items. The Windjammer dining needs better management as far as training the staff. Servers have a handiwipe under their tray and after clearing a table, they use the same wipe for table and chair. Never do they use a spray cleaner or move the salt & pepper or sugar container. Just wipe around it, and a poor job, too. Passengers are almost accosted when entering about sanitizing their hands. What a joke! The tables must be a breeding ground for bacteria! If you are the type of person who needs to be entertained, then this is the ship for you. Always activity and great shows. Yes, what you see on the TV ads is true. But, the zip-line lasts 9 seconds at best. Fun to watch though. Enjoy the short but energetic parade on deck 5. We loved the Solarium. Unfortunately our weather wasn't as great as we hoped, so during the showers and winds we found this the perfect place to relax. Guests under 16 not allowed and only on the last afternoon did I see a boy under that age with his parents. The crew must enforce this rule, which is wonderful! Princess & Celebrity should follow through and enforce the adult only policy in designated spots. Loved the 2 huge whirlpools that hang over the ship and enjoyed mornings before beginning our port shopping. Being Diamond level, we loved the cocktail hour at Blaze. Molly is the perfect hostess and thank you for getting my onions for my vodka/rocks. D-Bomb, our bartender, rocked! We gave him that name, so he knows who we are. Easy off and on during ports. Escalator after re boarding was cool. Guest Services personnel are one of the most helpful and thoughtful staff we've ever come across. They listen and go beyond your expectation! If the size of the ship and capacity has stopped you from booking on the Oasis or Allure, think again. Read Less

This was our second cruise and it was also our honeymoon. We weighed going on cheaper cruises but other half insisted that we go on "the big boat". I'm glad I listened to her. Even though it cost much more than everything else we were looking at, the Oasis really was worth the money. The ship was always immaculate and it feels like you're on a new ship. The layout and the decor were aesthetically pleasing and while the ship is large, no question about it, it was never really all that far to get where we were trying to go. The staff for the most part was very helpful and friendly, although for the second time, we had a bad experience at the spa on a Royal Caribbean ship (we will get to that in a minute). Specifically, one of the best things about this ship is the way the cabins are laid out. Supposedly, the sq footage of the Oasis balcony rooms is a little smaller than the balconies on other ships. However, that is either inaccurate or the way the rooms are arranged more than makes up for it. The shower in the bathroom has an odd shape that affords a little more room in the shower stall and the vanity in the bathroom is shallow which makes the bathroom feel bigger. In the cabin, again, the vanity is shallower and gives you more room in the cabin and the closets are laid out in such a way so as not to take up too much space from the living area in the room. We had a package for the specialty restaurants and by far, the Chops grill was the best. We also went to Izumi and that was pretty good. Giovanni's Table was just ok. The food in the main dining room was good and of course, if you're familiar with Royal Caribbean, the Windjammer is the Windjammer. There are only two issues I really had with this cruise. First is that the ship, while not being obnoxiously large, is big enough to affect the experience and interactions with the staff, probably because of the number of guests on board. On our previous cruise, we were able to familiarize ourself with the bartenders and some of the staff on board. On this ship, at almost every bar, there is a constant stream of people and the bar tenders don't seem to have the time to get to know the passengers. Also, the cruise director staff seemed to always be en route to the next event and didn't really have time to meet the passengers. On the whole, the cruise experience just felt impersonal compared to our previous cruise. The second issue we had was at the spa. The spa itself was absolutely gorgeous but the staff just seemed more qualified to sell you a treatment than to provide it. We had a couples massage done and while oils they use seem to be very nice, as far as the actual massage, you could probably a significantly better massage done for a quarter of the price at any massage parlor on land. Also, 15% gratuity included means that they aren't necessarily motivated to do a better job. Sadly, this was the same as our experience on our previous cruise which means we will not be getting massages on any future cruises. On the whole the cruise was still a great experience and we are excited to go again but the lessons learned are go on a smaller ship and don't go to the spa. Instead, spend the money at the bar or at the specialty restaurants. Read Less

Sailed 9-10-11 / 7 days Eastern Caribbean on the Oasis / Balcony Cabin 6612. This was my 19th cruise and I have sailed many RCCL ships. This ship is amazing and has so much to offer! We literally couldn't get it all done in just 7 days. We saw most of the shows, did most of the activities and overall thought it was a good cruise. Exceptional service by EVERY team member!! Having been on a lot of ships I did think overall the friendly attitude by all team members was great but there were some areas the ship fell short. Here are a few special highlights: One thing we would highly recommend is the CHEF's TABLE for dinner. It was an expensive extra at $95 pp but worth every penny. Just the amount of wine you get served covers that expense. The service, food was superb. Also appreciated the extras sent to our cabin before hand and the cookbook gift given after. Aqua Dreams Show & Come Fly with Me was very good. Giovanni's Table for Lunch Cabin beds were very comfortable and better than any other ship I have sailed Wonderful dEcor, very clean and many choices What we didn't like: It is very crowded and tended to be a lot of lines Overall the food quality was FAIR. Seemed to be very hit or miss in the main dining room, buffets, etc. It almost seemed like they have downgraded the food in the main dining rooms to get you to pay extra for the specialty restaurants. They are charging extra for most of the restaurants. Johnny Rockets used to be free for food on other ships now it is a charge. We did have some good meals in the dining room. We did do Giovanni's for lunch and paid an extra $30 for this. Very good food but then at the end of the meal they came to sell us a cookbook. ARGH! The Windjammer Buffett and Park Central Cafe are HORRIBLE! It is very congested, very hard to find a table and overall food selection is poor. In Park Central they don't even have guest trays so you can easily take your plates. Cabins - Our balcony cabin was very nice and very comfortable bed and beeding. In our cabin the electrical plugs in were UNDER the vanity cabinet and you had to crawl on the floor to get to them. Even the comdeian in the comdy club joked about how stupid this design was. TIP: Take an extension chord with a multi plus to use. The Spas - we didn't do spa services because I have had enough sales pitches by Steiner Spas over my years. (if you have had a massage on a cruise ship before you will know what that means). We did use the fitness center which is nice and I took a yoga class. We did purchase the weeklong pass for the Thermal Suite. This was $179 per couple so it was not included and we even found on our bilk they charged us 15% grat bringing it to $205. When I questioned the 15% grat they did remove it right away. There are no attendants in the Thermal Spa so you are on your own. My advice is to SKIP the spa and all services. It is very overpriced, and all they try to do is sell you more services. Bottom line...would I do this cruise ship again? Maybe, if I was taking family I think it would be good because there is so much to do. If we are going as a couple then I would go back to a smaller ship and avoid the crowds. Read Less

Oasis of the Seas is a fabulous ship. It was beautiful and clean. The crew were pleasant and helpful. My over all review is very positive. Another reviewer suggested bringing a power strip and I'm happy we did as this made charging things and using the hair dryer much easier. My biggest tip for anyone taking this cruise is take the time to sign up for all the shows, shore excursions, and specialty restaurants online before you get on the ship. You don't want to spend your precious vacation time waiting in lines to get to do these things only to find that the show you want to see is already booked. About the shows, SEE THEM. They're worth it. "Come Fly With Me" was great. "Frozen in Time" was so entertaining. The comedians we saw had us laughing hysterically. "Hairspray," while my least favorite was really quite good. There are so many activities planned all over the ship. We went to a few of the trivia contests and some of music games and they were a lot of fun. The piano bar was hopping on some nights. There is a guitar player who takes requests in the Globe & Atlas that had people singing and was very upbeat and fun. You have to choose to be bored on this ship. There are so many things to see and do. Cruisers looking for physical activities will enjoy the basketball court, the rock climbing walls. The fitness center is great. There are lots of treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, and free weights. There is a two lane track, one lane for joggers and one for walkers that is quite nice. There are ping pong tables which are fun on cooler days. The miniature golf course is cute and we had fun playing it. The Flow riders are great and I highly recommend the lessons if this is your first time trying to "surf." For the women trying the Flow rider wear a T-shirt, preferable one that dries quickly, not cotton. There is the zip line which I would say that if you have to wait in line, don't. There are far better things to do with your time. Another suggestion for those who like to be physical, take the stairs. You can justify eating all the great food and won't waste precious vacation time waiting for elevators. We ate at most of the specialty restaurants and they were all great. Let me say that Royal Caribbean hasn't given the Solarium Bistro enough attention on their website. I didn't expect much from the Solarium Bistro and the food absolutely blew me away. It was beyond fabulous. The food was delicious, artfully presented, and HEALTHY (but you won't feel like you were deprived). Our waiters (we had dinner there twice) were the right amount of attentiveness and very knowledgeable. I cannot possibly say enough about the food at Solarium Bistro. From the bread to the entrees it was my hands down favorite. (I have to give the best dessert to Chops) You must try it for yourself. If you only go to one specialty restaurant go to Solarium Bistro. Giovanni's was fabulous. We had lunch and dinner there and both meals were great. They have a great menu and the staff was very nice. Get the chocolate torte and you won't be disappointed. Chops was delicious. As I've said their dessert was the best. Their "outdoor" eating area is somewhat enclosed and since it can be quite windy in Central Park this makes their outdoor area the best. If you are looking for a serious steak it is the place to go. 150 Central Park gets the intimate atmosphere award.The food presentation is beautiful. You won't find more artistic plates anywhere. The food was prettier than it was tasty. It is a set menu except you do get to choose between two entrees. You are introduced to six different kinds of salt. That doesn't happen everyday. We only had two meals in the dining room. The food was good but the atmosphere was chaotic and the service was lacking. You're best off taking the buffet route. Solarium Bistro is a buffet for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is great there but it is healthy. Ask for butter if you want it and be prepared for turkey bacon. For lunch check out Park Cafe. The roast beef sandwich is a MUST and they make a great salad. You pick out the ingredients and dressing and they toss it all together for you. Very nice. The free doughnuts, PASS. Not worth the calories. But the Cupcake Cupboard is worth every penny and every extra bit of weight gain. If you want a peaceful deck experience try the Solarium pool. It is adults only. From there you can see the deck on 14 and there were hardly any people there. There are lounge chairs you can put anywhere you like and a nice view of the helicopter pad plus two viewing stations with telescopes that you could have all to yourself. You have to walk through the cabin area to get out on the deck on 14. I think that is why there were hardly any people there. Well that and no bar service. It was very nice. My one big complaint is how Royal Caribbean deals with the smokers. They don't. People are smoking everywhere. I was not happy that I couldn't enjoy the balcony of our room because of the smoke from balconies more forward. Before I'd go on another cruise I would want some assurance from them that I will be able to enjoy the balcony that cost a lot extra without having to breath in second hand smoke. As for half of the casino being no smoking forget it. The smoke fills the whole place. They probably would have gotten more of my money if I had been able to enjoy some fresh air. The Royal Promenade is full of smokers. You have to make a conscious decision not to let the smokers ruin your day. We enjoyed all of the shore excursions with the exception of Labadee on Hati. At Labadee the beach was so crowded. You are better off getting a raft and floating in the water. The lounge chairs are packed together right up to the hammocks there's barely room to walk. (And people are smoking everywhere. The beach is really just a giant ash tray now isn't it?) We paid to ride the jet skis. This was a total waste of time and money. We had to ride "follow the leader" style never being able to to have any free time to have fun. Speed was totally controlled by the person in front of you. Then we were led to a place where while we had our engines off local men came up to each jet ski on kayaks and tried to guilt each person into buy local crapts. It was hard sell tactics and we were basically hostages there until our guide would let us start up our engines to crawl away. Read Less

My boyfriend and I cruised on Royal Caribbean for the very first time in 2010 on the Freedom of the Seas traveling the Eastern Caribbean. We loved it so much, we wanted to experience the Western Caribbean side on the larger ship - Oasis of the Seas. We booked our cruise through Royal Caribbean and our cruise agent took good care of us. He helped us make many decisions that helped to make our cruise experience on Oasis of the Seas a greater experience. First of all, when booking on Oasis, it is important to make sure you select the stateroom that best suits your needs. My boyfriend didn't want to experience turbulence or the feeling of seasickness, so we requested a room in the middle of the ship, mid ship level. Our agent recommended room 6668 on the 6th floor. We also were very particular about having a balcony. When we sailed Freedom, we had an interior room and it was nice, but dark. Not necessarily a place you want to spend much time. So we were willing to spend a bit more to get the balcony so that we could spend some quality private time throughout the trip on our own private balcony. And it so was worth it. Take my advice and spend the extra money for the balcony. You won't regret it. We had the option to purchase an Oceanview balcony, Central Park balcony or Boardwalk balcony. We personally like privacy and the view of the ocean so we went with the Oceanview Balcony. Good thing we did because when we got on the ship the Central Park balconies and the Boardwalk balconies were very public versus private and not something we would have been happy with. The agent also assisted us with booking the flights - however, just to be safe we made sure better options were not available online. We found the best prices and the agent took care of the final details. As for gratuities, last year we paid upfront. We found that this was not the best idea because you did not get to choose who received what portion of your gratuity. It was evenly distributed. This year we elected to pay the gratuities at the end of the trip to ensure the proper persons were recognized for great service. I highly recommend you book the transfer busing that takes you from the airport to the boat and back. It cost 30 per person. This makes things VERY convenient. We booked Oasis of the Seas - Western Caribbean. Destinations included Labadee,Haiti; Falmouth,Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico. We arrived at Fort Lauderdale Airport on April 30th and easily found our way to the transfer station. We were greated by Royal Caribbean transfer agents that helped us with our luggage onto the bus. The transfer was a bit hectic as there were buses awaiting various cruise lines and hundreds of passengers for each. Nonetheless, we arrived at the dock within 45 minutes of arriving at the airport. We initially thought boarding the Oasis was going to be chaotic due to the volume of passengers (over 5000). However, it was a seemless process that took literally 10 minutes. We were on the boat around 1pm. This process was almost an hour faster than the Freedom and that boat had half the passengers. Upon boarding we got our photo id's and had our onboarding pics taken. Rooms: Our room was everything we expected. It was beautiful and the balcony was breathtaking. The set up of the room was pretty standard. The bathrooms were small, as on many ships, but the shower seemed to be a little more spacious than we remembered. The only negative was the outlets that were under the vanity and a bit hard to reach. Otherwise, the room was great. The best part about our room was that we were LITERALLY right next to the elevator. Not only that, most activities and places that we would spend most of our time were on floors 4 through 8. Our room was smack dab int he midst of all this. Food: The food on the ship was great. When we were on the Freedom, we spend a lot of time eating at the Windjammer because it was convenient and had a lot of options. However, on the Oasis, we spent very little time eating at the Windjammer. Yes, it was still convenient, but we found many hidden little treasures on the Oasis that provided for a great dining experience. Our favorite place to eat breakfast was on the balcony of our own room by ordering room service. The windjammer was the second place we frequented most for breakfast due to the variety of options. We spend many afternoons eating at the Park Place Cafe where you can get salads, fruits, and many specialty sandwiches to include the infamous Roast Beef which my boyfriend LOVED. As well as the, Tuna Melt Panini's which I LOVED. It was quick and delicious and NEVER a crowd. Another favorite lunch spot was the Seafood Shack where they had the best fried SCALLOPS I ever ate. There is a small charge for the Seafood Shack; however, if you love seafood it's a must try. For dinner, we dined in the Opus Dining Room on floor 3. We had a table of 6 and met some amazing people that we keep in touch with even today. The food at the Opus Dining Room was splendid. They had something for everyone. I am more adventurous with food than my boyfriend but even he was able to find items that he loved each night. The Surf and Turf night was my favorite. Our table guests raved nightly about the Tiramisu! Our head waiter - Ian, was great. The others were just OK. We made sure to tip Ian graciously. We also tried a couple specialty dining options. One night we dined at CHOPS with friends. My boyfriend and I had Filet Mignon and it was to die for. Very well prepared and GREAT service. The restaurant provided family style accompanying sides so we got to try many side dishes. The desserts were very eye appealing as well as tasty. The creme brulee was good but the Red Velvet Cheesecake was amazing. We also at a Giovanni's Table. This was the Italian dining option. I really enjoyed the italian style dining and the flavors but my boyfriend was disappointed. The restaurant had very little on the menu that he was willing to try. It's not like a typical Olive Garden menu by more specialty plating true to italian food. Both specialty restaurants had a small fee. Chops was $25 per person and Giovanni's was $15 per person. The service was impeccable at both restaurants. Other places to try for snacks - the Donut Shop - tasty free treats, and the Cupcake Cupboard (small fee). We heard raving reviews and had to try the cupcakes. They were good, but not great. Excursions: In Labadee, my boyfriend booked the Zipline which is the longest zipline over water in the world. This was one of the reasons we booked this particular cruise to Western Caribbean. The day of the labadee port, it was a bit rainy and windy out. Not the most pleasant weather. It got so windy that they lowered the weight limit on the zipline. My boyfriend is 6ft 5 and quite thin, but he was over the new limit. An hour later they said the winds were so high they were cancelling all the ziplines for the rest of the day. Had we been there one hour earlier he would have been able to participate. He had his money refunded. The beach at labadee was beautiful and we took some great pictures. Had the day been sunnier, we would have enjoyed it more. This is a great excursion if the winds are not high. In Falmouth Jamaice, we booked the Dunns River Falls excursion. I had heard so many great reviews about this that we HAD to do it. It was cost effective and so much fun. We boarded a bus that took us on a 45min ride to Dunns River Falls. We had a guide on the bus who reviewed landmarks and the history of Jamaica along the way. This excursion requires water shoes. Rather than pay $6 in Jamaica and risk not getting a pair that fits, buy them before you leave. They can be found reasonably at Walmart and Target. Once there we were escorted up the falls by a tour guide in groups. It was not overly physical but you had to be careful because it was slippery. All the way up the fall a cameraman followed the group and video taped the adventure. They also took pictures. You could purchase the video for $40. We decided to purchase the video and we are glad that we did. It was an amazing experience and we highly recommend it. You will however, go through a walkway ont he way back to the bus where you will be hounded to purchase items. Everyone in Jamaica also is very expressive about tipping. The tour guide, cameraman, and bus driver all follow you back to the bus awaiting their tips. They are well deserved tips but a bit uncomfortable nonetheless. In Cozumel Mexico, we booked the Dolphin Push, Pull and Swim. This was our favorite excursion. We recommend buying a water camera cause the pictures here are expensive to buy. Water cameras run about 20 dollars. They take professional pictures of each interaction with the dolphins that you can buy at the end. We had the opportunity to pet the dolphin, swim with the dolphin and be pushed on a boogie board by a dolphin. At the end of the swim, we also got to swim with a Manatee and baby sharks. At the end of our excursion it started to downpour. We were lucky because it was beautiful throughout the excursion. We had lunch at a local outdoor restaurant in cozumel. The food was ok. As I mentioned the pictures here are expensive. It is $25 per picture or you could buy a disk for $100 per person. Nonetheless, we loved this excursion and would highly recommend it to anyone even families with smaller children. Entertainment I highly recommend booking your entertainment in advance as recommended by Royal Caribbean for the Oasis of the Seas. We were able to see every show that we prebooked. If you don't prebook, it is likely you will not be able to attend the viewing of your choice. My favorite shows were in the Aqua Theatre. The divers and entertainers were world class olympians and entertainers from all over the world. The comedy shows and the comedy headliner show was funny but not gut busting. I've seen better comedians in Pittsburgh. But it was definitely entertaining and well worth the time to go. We highly recommend getting involved in the activities on the ship to include the "Quest" show (which we WON!!!), the Love and Marriage Show, the Battle of the Sexes - just to name a few. My boyfriend spent a lot of time int eh Casino in the later evening hours playing poker. This boat has a huge casino but not as many people playing poker as he had hoped for. He won a final seat int he Poker Tourney where they were giving away a free cruise on the Allure of the Seas in December to the winner; however, they were six players short to give out the cruise. They ended up playing for cash and he was the overall winner :) Spa The spa is quite expensive but I was able to get a discounted spa service by booking the "HAPPY HOUR" massage the day we were at port in Jamaica. If you book a happy hour massage, you get a 1 hr massage for $99. I was able to upgrade to $119 and get a Hot Stone Massage. This was a great deal and I enjoyed the massage. My only criticism is that they made an error in my billing. She added more to the tip than I gave and I definitely tipped graciously. This was the only billing error on the entire cruise. Other recommended activities on the ship: The zipline on the ship was fun. I cried for about an hour before doing it, but in the end I conquered my fear and it was fun. We never tried the flowriders because they looked like it could be a painful fall, but a friend of ours swore by it and said it was such a thrill to try it. Pictures This ship has many professional photographers that document your time and fun throughout the cruise. We had so many pictures taken that we decided to purchase the CD package which was 299 for ALL rights to EVERY picture taken on the cruise. We ended up with 89 professional pictures that we could have printed at our leisure. Otherwise, it costs $20 per 8x10 picture. They have a gallery where your pics are displayed and stored throughout the week for your viewing as well as an electronic kiosk to view your pics daily. Departure Departure was as easy as boarding. We did early departure which is at 6am to ensure you get to the airport in time for your flight. You basically depart the ship with your bags and board the bus to transfer back to the airport. We grabbed breakfast in the Windjammer before departing and we were on our way. This is the saddest time of the trip...and the hardest to leave. We got to the airport and couldn't remember our flight number and what airline because it was different from the trip to. We finally reached Royal Caribbean and an agent verified the correct info. The only negative piece here was that our flight didn't leave until 1:30pm and you could not check your bags at the airport until 3hrs before your flight. Therefore, we had to wait there with our bags from 8am till almost 10:30am. So you definitely want to verify this upfront. I know this is long, but I hope you find this information helpful in your planning of your cruise. This was a great experience for us on an amazing ship. We loved the Oasis of the Seas. We now have visited both Eastern and Western Caribbean. We are open to recommendations for our next cruise. Thinking Alaska at this point. Read Less

We sailed on Oasis in October during one of our anniversary celebrations. Mostly the ship itself is a marvel and there isn't much one can find wrong with it.The service was good and by and large so was the food. Public areas were enjoyable and walking through the Central park area and simply sitting around people watching was an experience.The boardwalk was definitely different from what one finds on other cruise lines and the Aqua Theatre is quite innovative.As large as this ship is, from day one, we never got lost once, which is amazing since on some other ships it takes a couple of days to get one's bearings.We enjoyed most of the shows which we had booked before the cruise together with dining reservations to match the show times.I recommend that everyone does that. RCI encourages it. reservations ahead of time will remove a lot of frustration once on board, especially if the ship is full.The bands on board were very good and since my wife and I like dancing, we had a good time. HOWEVER, there is one place, and this is on the Royal Promenade, which is always full of people walking up and down, it is called BOLERO and unfortunately RCI, decided that this place will be a SMOKING area. It is unfortunate because the music is great but the cigarette and cigar smoke coming out of the area encompasses about a hundred feet outside the lounge which even while walking by, one starts smelling it and the closer one gets to it, it becomes very difficult to breath.I think that it is unfair for RCI to have an area as popular as Bolero a smoking area. This sort of chases away the majority of non smokers from the area and maybe even from the ship(s) Read Less

I have been a fan of this website for years, and have found the cruise member reviews very helpful in deciding what cruise line/ship to book. My husband and I are avid cruisers, and we just got off the Oasis. The ship is just awesome. It's very easy to navigate and we never really felt crowded. We had an interior room on deck 11 at the very front of the ship. We found the room to be very spacious and the closet fit all of the extra clothes I always bring along. We had some pretty rough weather the first night which made my husband sea sick. I was surprised at how much movement we felt that night, but the weather quickly turned better the farther we got from Flordia! After that, you easily forgot that you were on a ship at sea. We really went on this ship for the ship itself and not the ports of call. We have been to St. Thomas, St. Maarten and the Bahamas before. The ship delivered and then some. The food was excellent. Last year we sailed on the Freedom of the Seas and found the food so bland that we couldn't eat in the main dining room and had to visit the specialty restaurants. That was not the case on the Oasis. We were very pleased with the food in the main dining room and the only specialty restaurant we went to was Johnny Rockets for lunch. It was great to have so many places to choose from to eat that were free! There's Cafe Promenade, Sorrentos, the dining rooms, the Windjammer, Park Cafe, and the Solarium Bistro during the day. The entertainment is the best at sea. Hairsray was the best - even better then when I saw it on Broadway. There are so many things to do, you really have to pick and choose. If you can't find something to do on this ship, then there's something wrong with you! The service was great as well. The only negatives for us have nothing to do with the ship, but rather with the people that we sailed with. There were something like 2,500 Brazilians, 1,500 Asians and the rest were from Long Island, New York. Never have I felt like such a minority as most of our fellow cruisers did not speak english. The Asians were very polite and fun. The Brazilians left much to be desired. They were very rude. They pushed and shoved in the elevators. Every time my husband and I were eating in Sorrentos, we saw them drop the cheese/pepper shakers on the floor breaking it. Accidents happen, of course, but they would get up and leave the cheese and broken glass on the floor without telling anyone about it. The poor young man who works there was very upset with them and he was from Brazil himself!!! My husband and I love to dance and looked forward to dancing in Boleros nightly. We were disappointed to find that the Brazilians took Boleros over as well. Every night, rather than being treated to the smooth stylings of Sol y Arena (They are just fantastic) we heard from Paolo from Brazil who treated Boleros as his personal Karoke Bar. He would get up, take over the microphone and sing the Brazilian anthem and whatever else he felt like - he was also not a good singer at all. It was very disappointing to us, and the lead singers there looked as frusterated as we felt. At the headliner show, the poor guy (I think his name is Dominic Allen) was giving it all he had on stage. He's very talented and can play many instruments. I have never seen so many get up and leave during the middle of a show. The Brazilians were so rude - many started talking loudly during his show and they even started to boo him loudly. I really felt for this guy. We went to the beach in St. Thomas and were stuck in a cab with the biggest bunch of complainers I have ever met. They were from Long Island, New York. When we first got in the cab they were already complaining about the bad service, food and entertainment on their ship. Thinking they were on the Costa docked next to us I asked them what ship they were on. When they said the Oasis I almost fell out of my seat!! From the moment we left the ship to the time we arrived at Meghan's Bay, all they did was complain about their vacation. "To many people, it's over priced, not enough to do, the food is horrible, the service is horrible, the room is horrible..." Then when they found out via cell phone how crowded Meghan's Bay beach was, they were going to make the taxi driver turn around (we were stuck in traffic en route) and go to Sapphire Beach instead - with no regard to my self or my husband who wanted to see Meghan's Bay. We have never been there before on stops to St. Thomas but had heard it was beautiful. Never in all our cruising have I been so disappointed in people!!! My husband and I are very outgoing and look forward to meeting people and making new friends on cruises, but that did not happen this time. Our cruise would have been outstanding had it not been for the people we were stuck sailing with. It left us with the feeling of, "get me out of here and off this ship!!!" We came home and told family that this ship is truly an experience, but that we had sailed with a bunch of barbarians. Read Less
