I would highly recommend the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Sea to anyone, especially as a honeymoon, but really for any sort of vacation or occasion. We had a balcony room on Deck 12 which was a very nice room, we enjoyed being able to sit out on the balcony in the morning/evening or when we were coming into port. Our stateroom attendant, Jermaine, consistently went above and beyond to make us feel at home, highly personable, went of his way to ensure everything in our room was to our satisfaction and along with the other housekeeping staff did what they could to make us feel special on our honeymoon. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Jermaine. The food and service in the American Icon dining room were top notch. We were so impressed by our servers (which having been a server in the past, I'm a fairly tough critic), we actually reserved at table in their section every night. Trust the waitstaff recommendations on dinner options, every time we selected something they had recommended we were highly pleased with it. Honestly, don't bother spending the money on the specialty restaurants. We went to one and talked to other couples who went to a couple of the others and all of us agreed, that the food in the dining room was just as good if not better and the service was better than in the specialty restaurants. And for some great drinks in a really nice atmosphere check out the Trellis Bar in the Central Park Deck 8 area of the ship. Jude and his fellow bartenders always treated us great. The activities on the ship were a lot of fun too. You could make the trip as relaxed or as busy as you wanted. We loved the Honeymooner's get together - what a great idea to give all of us a chance to get to know each other. We forged a friendship with another couple that began in part through our attendance at the Honeymooner's get together. We also absolutely loved the night time game shows (love and marriage, battle of the sexes, quest, perfect couple, etc) and attended every one. As a singer, the Rock a Rokie karaoke with the band was so much fun, definitely something you should keep.The headliner show, ice show, and aqua theater show were all amazing. We didn't get to see the Come Fly with Me show because of technical difficulties -- we were disappointed but of course everything can't be perfect. But they did offer up other activities in its place. The quality of the entertainment was truly top notch. Our ports were Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. We did the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim in the Bahamas. This was a bucket-list item for me and my husband and it was worth every penny we paid for it. We each got a "foot push" by the dolphins, got a dolphin hug, kiss, danced with them in the water, and more. Neither of us will ever forget that. At St. Thomas we went snorkeling and on a catamaran sail ride. The snorkeling was ok, we saw a lot of turtles and our guides were great, but I wish the area we snorkeled in had more coral reef or colorful fish. Finally in St. Maarten, we took it a little easier and went on an island tour by bus to see both sides of the island, did a little shopping, and took tons of pictures. All in all, it was the most amazing honeymoon we could ask for. Thank you Royal Caribbean and Oasis of the Seas! We will definitely be back! Read Less

We went on a 7- night cruise for our 10th anniversary and I don't think we could have made a better choice. Royal Caribbean does such an amazingjob with everything: food, service, entertainment. You can really tell that everyone on that vessel takes great pride in their work and ship. Highly recommend this cruise! The excursion options were great. Each stop had something to offer, some the same and some unique to the locations. The daily itineraries they deliver each night along with the shopping guide are so helpful in planning your next day: whether it's figuring when to do what or what time the eateries will be open or letting you know the currency of your next destination or even what time you can catch the sunrise. We constantly referred back to those. And of you left yours in your room, there were some available at the customer service desk. There is no way to be bored on board either. There is so much to do. Again, I highly recommend this cruise experience. Read Less

My family and I absolutely loved the trip. Son could not wait to get back to the Kids Club area every night, which allowed for my husband and I to have some great Rest and Relaxation. Food was amazing, something for everyone and plenty of it. Activities seemed never-ending! We spent 7 nights on the ship and still did not do everything we wanted to on the ship. Staff was very kind and engaging, excursions were great. This trip was worth every penny. We are definitely going back. The shows were fun and engaging. I really enjoyed the outside theater. The any time dinning was great, allowed us to eat any time we were hungry and we had a table all to ourselves. Making reservations were simple and they were always accommodating. Internet service was great but make sure you get it before you board the ship it is so much cheaper. They even had a professional photography studio onboard which is nice because it is always hard to find the time and opportunity for those family photos. Read Less

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

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

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

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

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

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

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