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

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

I felt totally relaxed the entire trip. The service and staff are incredible. The ship is unbelievable, clean, up to date, with more things to do than you can possibly accomplish in 7 nights. Some of the other, more negative reviews, complain that the ship is very full and reservations are required for most things. While this is true, I feel that RCI is very up front about this and give you many opportunities to make said reservations. It's unfortunate if some people did not realize this, but even on a full cruise like mine it was still possible to get into many of the larger events without a reservation. Smaller events like the aqua show and the comedy club are a little trickier. Specialty restaurants were never full, but I'd still recommend reserving them if at all possible, especially Izumi as they only have two hibachi tables and fill up quickly. The food in the specialty restaurants was incredible and a great value. These are meals that on land would cost you $100-$200. The quality of the food, the selection, the staff, everything is top notch. I can't say the same for the main dining room, however. We had one meal in there and the food was worse than in the buffet. It's incredibly loud and the service was not up to par. I'd recommend buying the specialty restaurant package and sticking with that, supplementing with Sabor/Johnny Rockets if need be. I'd also recommend avoiding the windjammer for breakfast. The food is good enough, but the crowd is ridiculous. There are plenty of other places to eat breakfast for free that won't be such a hassle. My overall point being that even on a ship with 6,000+ people, if you manage your time wisely, make reservations for things that require them, and spend a little extra on the food/drink packages, you'll have a fantastic time. If all you're going to do is eat at the windjammer/main dining room, pay as you go for drinks, and just chill by the pool, you may want a smaller and less crowded ship. Read Less

We chose this cruise ship because it's one of the bigger ships of Royal Caribbean. What a great decision we made! The ship was gorgeous and there so much to do we didn't get a chance to do everything even though we had a 7 day cruise. We tried to attend every event we could. The activities were amazing! We loved the Aqua Theater, what great talent. They kept us entertained the entire time! The Headliner show (Las Vegas Tenors) had amazing voices, they were awesome! Frozen in Time, oh my goodness! It was Amazing!! That was such amazing ice skating skills. They told a story with every movement! Its a must watch!! You cannot miss it. Come Fly with me show was great also. Our dining experience was amazing. We had a waiter that was so attentive and professional. The food was delicious! My husband even chose 2 plates at times because it was so good! Read Less

This was our first RCI cruise, after several on Carnival. My favorite thing was the ship's layout, which was very well designed and surprisingly efficient, considering the number of passengers. However, the staff service was very hit-and-miss. Some of the crew were amazing (our room steward and head waiter and Champagne Bar staff were all great). Some of the other staff (particularly those from Jamaica) were passive-aggressive or outright rude. Overall on the ship, I felt 'nickel-and-dimed' at every turn, which is tacky. The dining room is made to feel second class next to the "premium" restaurants, which are heavily and repeatedly advertised all over the ship. There was a constant message that "if you aren't paying extra, then you're missing out". For food, there were no decent hamburgers or tacos without paying extra in the specialty restaurants (yes, the buffet had a semblance of both at times, but the quality was sorely disappointing). In comparison, Carnival ships have both Burger and Burrito/Taco offerings, as well as Mongolian Grill and Italian restaurant options included at no extra cost, which added great value and a sense of class. Our stateroom attendant made us feel special, was genuinely caring and he had great attention to detail. Our room was spotless and he never missed a thing. He was somehow always there, but yet never underfoot (we called him our 'room ninja'). Our favorite bartenders were at the Champagne Bar. Before the cruise, I was most excited about the Irish Pub, but ends up it had the worst service on the ship, even after several attempted visits on different days, and they kept running out of things! One day no Hefeweizen (so I went to Sabor, and they had it there). The next day, no Stone IPA. And for the whole cruise, they didn't have key ingredients for many of their specialty cocktails on the menu. Drink service in the main dining room was very slow, as it would normally take 10 or 20 minutes for a glass of wine, and our drink waiter didn't know anything about wines. In Vintages (wine bar), the man working had absolutely no interest in discussing any of the wines that were included in the drink package, which we were eager to try and learn about. He only wanted to talk about $200+ bottles, or the $80 tasting event. When we politely declined his (continual) offers to up-charge us, be became very stuffy and it was apparent he couldn't wait for us to leave and go somewhere else. So we left, skipping the tapas we planned to purchase. As a whole, the bar staff on the ship worked very, very hard to accommodate all of the guests, mostly to impressive results (excusing a handful of rude crew), but it was clear that they were significantly understaffed which was wearing on them, and therefore impacting the final quality of both the drinks and the service. This could have been greatly improved with a few more hands to help during busy times. On Labadee, we weren't able to eat. One side of the island didn't have enough plates, so the line was long and wasn't moving. So we walked to the other side of the 'island', and while they had plates, the line was just as long. We checked back in an hour for the lines to die down, but they remained until it closed, so we didn't eat. (Granted, we could have stood in line for 30 minutes, but who wants to do that). Drinks were abundantly available and bar service was very quick however. The local Haitians were pushy and obnoxious every time we walked by. They would yell "hey! hey! hey! I have an important question!" to try and get us in their shop, or they would tell passing ladies how beautiful they were to try and make them stop. Some variant of this happened at least 25 times to us, so I didn't want to go that way again. For shows, the comedians were the best show the whole week! They were clever and witty, without being too crass. We watched the family and the adult show. I would have VERY MUCH enjoyed more standup comedy shows, instead of the same show repeating every night of the cruise. In conclusion, it was a very enjoyable cruise, and we are happy to have tried the world's largest cruise ship. I still think that Carnival has a better included Menu and a nicer Crew, but RCI certainly wins with the best ship! My wife loved Central Park and the large variety of well manicured plants (she is a landscape designer), and even with a full ship, it was always possible to find a quiet 'neighborhood' to get away. Thank you for a great week! Read Less

The person that worked on out room was great. Very friendly and accommodating. She have an excellent knowledge of the ship and what was going on and answered every question we had. Also, the service and food on the My-Time-Dining was excellent. My wife and I are telling all our friends and family how great the service was. We like so much the service and attention from all in the ship that we already booked 2 more cruises. We are looking for 1 or 2 cruises a year. Please be sure to let them know how much their services are appreciated. I was planning to take a lazy week at sea (3 cruising days) to rest from the toils of work. Well, I was wrong. There is so much to do and the shoes are great that I need a vacation to rest from the vacation.  The people on the Royal Caribbean cruises are wonderful. Read Less

We highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend Royal Caribbean to everyone!!! This was our first cruise and honeymoon cruise and it was just extraordinarily fantastic! Really, there aren’t enough words or emotions to express how wonderful the overall experience was on the Oasis of the Seas! The entire staff is very friendly, the shows are like watching blockbuster shows, the activities are endless, the food is like eating at a 12 star restaurant the entire sailing, the cruise director and captain is very informative and caring for all the guests, the stateroom was barely lived in because there was sooo much fun to experience but the balcony is definitely the way to go when sailing!! The ports staff is just as grand! The excursions was an absolute blast! I could write an entire novel on the whole experience but I just want to tell everyone that sees this, take a leap of faith and do Royal Caribbean, I promise you will not be disappointed one bit!!! Thank you Royal Caribbean!!! Read Less

We chose this cruise because our Friends would like to do their 1st cruise in the Oasis And we like the ports Bahamas, St. Thomas And St. Maarten. We like the drink package that comes with it, the prepaid gratuities, And the internet that comes with the drink package. Plus it’s Amenities And activities on Board. Embarkation is smooth, checking in early is better to avoid the long lines and you get in the ship and get to relax. Do not bring Iron, power bars this will be confiscated and cause luggage delay. Laundry is 35$ for 1 bag ( shirts, shorts, undies and socks)which they offer on the 3rd day. Unless you are willing to pay for pressing a pair of pants would cost 6.99 for wash and press. For activities, there’s miniputt, ping pong tables, court , pools . This ship has more amenities than the Disney Fantasy. Food is better this time , more variety and tastes better. Although they can serve more seafood like mussels and shrimps in the buffet area. They have burgers and hotdogs at the wipeout cafe but it’s not grilled. I wonder why can’t they have a griller in this ship. People would have lined up more for these items if they are grilled. We bought a drink package which is very handy to order drinks from different bars at different levels. Thanks to our favorite bartenders in the Pool Bar Rupesh Bhoir( India ) , Rolin Mendoza ( Philippines) , Oleh ( Ukraine) in the Sand bar. They left a lasting impression for providing service with a smile no matter how busy it is. But our favorite is the Pool Bar the bartenders are always happy and smiles all the time. We also love the service we have at the Glibe atlas, the bartenders are nice and makes sure we get our drinks on time and the drinks are really good. With this package you can order specialty coffee and I also get my smoothies or shakes in Vitality Cafe which is really nice. I also get the free internet package. Wifi is good everywhere in the ship considering my phone was on Airplane mode the whole time. They have a gym which is really nice and a track if u want to exercise. For dining, we did the 815 pm dinner which really worked for us. Most of the time we sit in the bars in Globe Atlas or the bar that goes up and down and Schooners bar to pass the time before going to the shows. We went to a few shows we’ve seen most of them Last time . The comedy was really good!!! Thanks to Patricio Figueroa (Headwaiter ) , Jiadong( China) & Samuel ( India). They made our dining experience great and they even had a champagne toast for our friends celebrating their 30th anniversary. They went above and beyond in making sure that our meals and drinks were served in a timely manner. They are efficient and very friendly. The menu is better this time. It all tastes good. I had rack of lamb twice and they are delicious. The had 2 appetizers every time and they were all good. Entertainment was sort of a disappointment we enjoyed the music from the Band that played last oct 2017 at Dazzles and they’re not there anymore. The temperature band is OK but the music just doesn’t click to the crowd that everyone left as they were just starting to play their set. But we enjoyed miniputting,playing ping pong . There’s hardly any activities on the poolside. The Solarium restaurant is busy at lunchtime would be nice if they figure a way to separate the line from the salad bar as it gets blocked from people lining up to get food. There are times I have to get in line for the food even though I just want to get salad. Read Less

Chose this cruise because someone recommended it. I was not disappointed. The cabin bathrooms were a little small to move around in. The specialty restaurants were great. Chops is a fav of most for steaks however, I found Giovanni's to be superior (ask for server Salah) and the Chateaubriand at 150 Central Park is amazing as well. This is all organic and I was a little skeptical. I am so glad we gave it a chance. An added little surprise, The unsalted butter has about 6 different salts from all over the world to salt the butter with. The ship has a variety of things to do while you are sailing even when it is raining. We saw the musical Cats this first night and it was very "Broadway" and the performers were very talented with great voices. I don't want to forget Come Fly With Me which is a great short production of musical numbers. One tip...Don't sit in the balcony during this production as there are lots of aerial activities and hard to see from that angle if at all. All in all, The unlimited soda is great if you don't mind carrying a cup around which I did. you could go in and get a drink and bottled water, however, I didn't know bottled water was included until the 3rd day and felt very dehydrated due to my lack of knowledge. All in all, I would recommend this Cruise and will probably go back again. Read Less

The Oasis of the Seas was amazing. What made it even better though, was most staff. Very friendly, welcoming staff that do everything in their power to help you and to help give you the best time on your vacation. My vacation will never be forgotten and neither will some of the staff. Both me and my girlfriend, had a great time aboard the ship and are definitely looking forward to booking our next cruise the Royal Caribbean once again. Dining service was fantastic and offered a semi-big selection. Staterooms were always kept clean and the attendant I had was beyond friendly and did a more than a fantastic job. Very pleased with the staff, however there were minor issues with a few elevators (skipped floor 6 all the time, and other times the elevator would skip right past our floor). The food in the windjammer could definitely get better as far as adding more flavor to the food. Pasta was undercooked a lot, and sometimes the food was cold or borderline. Pizza parlor on deck 5 was a amazing add on to the ship, however me and my girlfriend caught them undercooking some pizzas a lot of the time. (We only ate it when it was cooked completely) but it was delicious when we did get it! Read Less
