My wife and I have been on several cruises with different cruise lines. We've docked next to Oasis of the Seas and added this ship to our cruise bucket list. We are new empty-nesters and decided to take our first vacation in a long time. We booked Oasis, and we are beyond glad that we did! What an amazing ship! It is extremely clean. Wanda in housekeeping, did an immaculate job keeping our room clean and tidy.She was so friendly and really made our vacation special. We had an ocean view room on the 9th floor. The window was huge, and it allowed us to look out and see the beautiful water and ports. All of the shows were outstanding! Our favorites included "Come Fly with Me", the aqua show, and the ice show. We were never bored. In fact, we were exhausted by the end of the day from all of the activities that we did. Food - All of the food was delicious! The MDR service was great, but even the food in Windjammer exceeded our expectations. Yes, it is a buffet, but it was tasty and uniquie every day. You will definitely want to try Sabor, the Mexican cantina on the ship. It was the best Mexican food we've ever had. Try the margaritas and the guacamole was delicious! Embarkation/Debarkation - Quick and easy. The whole process took about 25 to 30 minutes each time. Port Canaveral does an amazing job moving over 6,000 people quickly. The 7-nights went by quickly and we can't want to check out another Oasis-class ship soon! Read Less

We chose this cruise because we wanted to sail on one of RCI’s “Big Ones” and we only wanted three ports so we would have more time at sea to relax. The ship is awesome. Very well laid out. Although there were over 6,000 passengers we never felt crowded. We chose the dining that allowed us to eat at our discretion rather than choosing to eat at the same time and table every night. Our food and service were exceptional! I’ve been on almost 30 cruises and this ship nailed it in the dining/service category! We made reservations before we boarded and that saved us a lot of time waiting in line. We liked the Solarium area to relax and use the hot tub. Most of the time we could find two chairs there with no problem. It’s quiet and relaxing. Also, there is a Buffet there that doesn’t get too busy so that was very convenient. We went to two shows: “Come Fly With Me” and the Aqua show. Both were great. The comedy show was also great so all the shows we went to were well worth our time. We’re not “Cats” fans so did not go to that. We chose the Wave Runner excursion in Labadee and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide spent 15 minutes going through a safety video and making sure everyone was on board with the rules. On the water we had a blast!! I would highly recommend this tour. Labadee is very well laid out and has many different areas to spend your day in. The buffet on the beach was typical (burgers, dogs, ribs, chicken) but it was all good. Our cabin (#11278) was a standard balcony cabin. Arlene was our attendant and she was super!! Very friendly and efficient. FYI there are no outlets by the bed to charge your phone, as a matter of fact there was only one outlet in the cabin (not including the bathroom) and it was located on the desk. It was laid out fine and there is ample space If you use all the cabinets. Tyne only issue was the hair dryer was very weak. Of course, the cruise was badly affected when 500 people contracted the noroviris. We knew something was up when we went to the Windjammer for breakfast and everything was being served by crew members. We couldn’t even get our own water or butter. And the time and effort it took to clean and sanitize a table after someone left was considerable. In the dining room, the servers would sanitize the salt and pepper shakers, sugar bowl and the butter bowl. We arrived in Jamaica that morning and we sat there for about six hours before the captain decided to leave. He made an initial announcement about the delay about two hours after we arrived and made a few more before the big announcement and also that we were leaving. It was during this time he announced people had gotten sick from norovirus. Unfortunately there are many people who come on cruises knowing they’re sick and yet do nothing to stop it from spreading from themselves to others. So many people got sick and it could have been prevented by simple hand washing and practicing good hygiene. The norovirus was and is not the fault of the cruise line. It’s caused by people who don’t care about others. I felt RCI did a great job to try and contain the spread of the norovirus and seemed to have a plan in place from the onset. I commend them for the job they did. I know it doesn’t help those who got sick because their cruise was ruined but I feel it needs to be said that the cruise line did all they could. On the critical side of the review... We were unhappy with our couples massage. They asked us what we wanted and where they needed to focus but they still just did what they normally do. We felt like they didn’t really listen. Massages on the ship aren’t cheap so it would be nice to have them pay closer attention to the answers you give them at the beginning. We were disappointed that the free ice cream was only offered for a limited time during the day. We felt it should have been available until midnight for us late night snackers. Speaking of which, the food choices overall, outside the dining room and buffet after 8:00 pm were extremely limited. The pizza was good but if we didn’t want pizza all you had left to choose from were desserts and petite sandwiches that didn’t look very appealing, at the Cafe Promenade. I feel they could easily improve in that area. Overall we were very happy with the cruise, aside from the norovirus issue. We would definitely recommend this ship. Read Less

This is my 3rd cruise with RCCL and my 6th overall. This was by far the best one. I was worried about being on such a big ship with 6000 passengers as I have only been on smaller ships before. It was never a issue. There is always something to do and we were never bored. I had read the reviews about the ship being old and showing its age, Not true. It was not brand new but was well maintained and clean. The staff were all professional and we never had a issue. We stayed in a junior suite and it was much more comfortable then we were used to. Only issue we had was we were not able to have dinner in the Coastal Kitchen that suite guest could use. By the time we tried to get in it was already reserved for the cruise. Not a big deal the main dinning room was great. The entertainment on the ship was top rate. Cats was excellent and the diving show is something not to miss. I read lots of negative reviews of this ship and I don't see what people are complaining about. I work in a service industry and know hard it is to please some people and RCCL are great. No matter what you do some people will not be happy. I recommend this cruise for everyone. Read Less

This was my first RC Cruise. Carnival Will Never See Me Again!! GREAT JOB ROYAL CARRIBEAN!! Looking forward to next year’s, as well as, the following years cruise!! I could, Easily Cruise several times per year!! Maybe, once hubby retires (fingers crossed) Every step of the boarding process, every excursion, EVERYTHING! Was organized and flowed smoothly. Every meal was delicious! But, the most impressive item was, the Curried Chicken, On Windjammer’s buffet. It Was AWESOME!!! The attention to cleanliness was appreciated. Someone was wiping, and offering hand sanitizer, constantly. Again.. Good Job, RC! Everyone seemed to genuinely care about pleasing the guest. Another, Very Appreciated feature, that is different from the previously traveled cruise line is, The children’s curfew and the designated area for the children. The entertainment was Top Notch!! And!!! The drinks!! The Schooner Bar makes an amazing drink called The Baton Rouge!! Also had, quite a few, tasty Lemon Drop martini’s Read Less

I would highly recommend the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Sea to anyone for any sort of vacation or occasion. Our family booked a row of 5 balcony rooms on Deck 8 plus one more a few doors down for our family vacation. This trip was a first time cruise for about 6 of us. We enjoyed being able to sit out on the balcony in the morning/evening or when we were coming into port. Our stateroom attendant, (I’m sorry, I forgot his name, but my room was 8136) 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. This team did what they could to make us welcomed aboard. The food and service in the American Icon dining room were top notch. We were so impressed by our servers, Nelson and Amoor (I think that’s how you spell is name), we actually reserved our table in their section every night. We were highly pleased with it with all available selections. Honestly, we didn’t bother spending the money on the specialty restaurants. And I MUST mention the AMAZING bartenders at the Trellis Bar in the Central Park Deck 8 area of the ship. Virgillo, Archie and Shawna were nothing less than the BEST OF THE BEST bartenders. They always treated us with top notch service. My name is L'Oreal and the simple fact that EVERYTIME I would pass, they would speak and actually remember my name speaks VOLUMES for this crew. This team truly rocks! (I must also shout out to William. He opened the Trellis one afternoon and remembered me that same evening in the American Icon bar!) 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 fact that there was SO much to do we could not fit it all into our schedules. Even though we missed our shows due to our family dinners, I heard they were awesome. The FlowRider competition was pretty cool to watch. We also watched the World’s Sexiest Man contest which was HILARIOUS and fun! I must also make mention of the DreamWorks Parade! This was TRULY one of my favorite experiences aboard! I felt like a kid again and danced around with my little cousin who was just as mesmerized as I was. Our ports were Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico. The beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean will always be etched in my memory. I’m sure none of my family will ever forget this family vacation. We enjoyed the RCC event held in Labadee and the shopping. In Falmouth, we did the Fun in the Sun excursion to Doctor Cave’s Beach Club. We did enjoy seeing the school and field where Usain Bolt learned and trained. The beach was beautiful. We also had to joy of watching planes landing at the airport just north of us. Finally in Cozumel, we took a taxi downtown to do some shopping. We then took another taxi to Paradise Beach. This place is just beautiful and full of a broad range of activities. The culture here in Mexico is rich and I sincerely wanted more time there. All in all, it was the most amazing family vaction we could ask for. Thank you Royal Caribbean and Oasis of the Seas! We will definitely be back! (However, disembarked Aug. 5th 2018. As of Aug. 8th, we have booked Family Vacation 2019 on Allure of the Seas. No worries, Oasis, we’ll be back!) 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 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

We chose this cruise based on recommendations from friends. I didn't realize it was one of the biggest cruise boats in the world when I booked it and was glad it was the first cruise boat we went on. We didn't have any trouble with motion sickness at all. I would highly recommend this cruise and cruise line to anyone and everyone! We went to 3 ports and booked excursions at each. -Labadee, Haiti has it's own private area and was absolutely gorgeous with the mountains! We went on the Kayak Adventure with short beach break with some shopping. Great tour guide who gave us some history of Labadee. Please visit there because tourism is #1 source income for them. Royal has brought many jobs, water and electricity to them!! -Falmouth, Jamaica has a nice port for shopping but plan to travel for most shore excursions. Colleen was a great tour guide to Dunn River Falls and River Tubing. -Cozumel, Mexico was beautiful and has some shore excursions off the island. We drove a jeep to Punta Sur. Jeep could have been in better shape, some of the other drivers had newer jeeps with a/c, ours was stripped, no a/c, no radio, nothing... (only complaint and take that as a small complaint). The tour guides were awesome and we got a good history lesson, sawe some crocodiles, went snorkeling, option to eat buffet lunch for $10 each (we opted to eat when we got back to port at Margaritaville), and tour of a lighthouse with the most spectacular views of the whole island. We did not explore Orlando before or after cruise, just didn't have time mostly. Embarkation and disembarkation always went smoothly from beginning to end. I recommend eating in the main dining room if you don't want to spend extra money on the specialty restaurants. Chops Grille was really good though. Didn't eat much in the wind jammer (the buffet style restaurant). Mainly when we were tight on time. Desserts were awesome, wish I would have taken pictures of the food! All of the shows were top notch! There was ALWAYS something going on and the cruise director and staff were awesome! Stateroom was great, clean and we had ocean balcony. Any room would be nice but I did like the natural light coming in during the day. Any cons we had would be better music on the pool deck, such as more Caribbean music. We traveled without our children this time but they have an awesome kids area for ages 3-11 plus a teen area for ages 12-17. We may or may not take our kids next time. I would definitely go again and I am already ready to go back! Read Less

I choose this particular cruise because of the price and timing of the departure date. From beginning to end we had a fantastic time. Drove to FL the day before sailing and spent a great day and evening at the port. The embarkation process was very smooth. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and the ship was excellent. Loads to do and see with great restaurants (Solarium), bars (Globe and Anchor) and shops.Entertainment was non-stop with lots of variety for all ages. The service was first class and the staff were friendly and helpful. The ports were great. Haiti (Laberdee) was very nice. Beaches were well maintained and clean. Water was fantastic. Do not leave the port in Jamaica (pretty scary outside the gate). Cozumel was the best. Took a VW bug tour of the island and had a great time visiting some of the local food shacks by the road. Did some snorkeling and took a tour of one of the local Tequila farms. Overall we had one of the best experiences we have ever had and cannot wait to book again for next year. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT.....
