RCCL is our favorite cruiseline as they do whatever is necessary to provide a truly enjoyable vacation. Their staff is second to none in pleasing passengers. This ship we experienced some of the best in the dining room with an incredible waiter Jordan and his assistant who was just as terrific. If you can't find something to do on this ship you can't be satisfied by anyone. We had a cabin overlooking Central Park. I would have preferred our usual outside cabin. We like looking at the ocean. Preferred location of a cabin is also closer to either end by elevators which cuts down on much of the walking. Food is prepared well but choices are more limited than in the past. Like everything they are trying to keep cost down by using cuts of mean and fish where the cost is less. They still maintain the high quality of desserts and breads that they've always had. Read Less

oasis-of-the-seas Nov 7th 2016. First cruise out of Port Canaveral for 8 days to Labadee, Jamaica, Costa Maya and Cozumel. We had a great time in an oceanview balcony room on deck 11. We ate dinner in the main dining room twice, the Windjammer once and specialty restaurants the rest of the time. We did not prebuy a restaurant package because we hadon board credit to spend. Once on board they were selling 3 dinners for $90. We chose Giovanni's Table, Izumi and 150. Giovanni's was very good. We chose the Hibatchi dinner. Shrimp and beef combination was sensational. The 6 of us all agreed this was our best meal. 150 was a complete dissapointment. The beef rib tip was small and cooked like a roast with no sides. The waiter had bragged about the squash soup. It didn't live up to the hype. Desert was ok but didn't save the experience. On Monday we were sitting in the promenade and were approached and offered a discount for the Solarium Bistro. First he offered 40% off. We hesitated and he went to 50% off plus he said we could get the lobster for free if we came on Tuesday which was the normal lobster night in the main dining room. Normally they get another $5 for the lobster. We agreed to purchase and go on Tuesday. I can say it was a great choice as the meal and experience was great. All the shows were very good too. I am not too interested in sitting for 2.5 hours but I did it for CATS. I can't get excited about the story but every singer and dancer were quite good and in that context I enjoyed the show. The quality of entertainment justifies the premium the ship costs as well as the interest provided by the neighborhoods. I had a personal priority to go to Sabor. We had experienced Sabor on Freedom of the Seas and it was so good we couldn't wait to go again. The menu on Oasis was not the full menu we had on Freedom. Instead of it being one price it was alacart. They treated this venue more like a place for a snack instead of a specialty restaurant. With all we did during the week, Sabor fell through the cracks. The smaller menu just wasn't as compelling to us. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it was the first for the Oasis out of Port Canaveral. We only left the ship once briefly in Costa Maya. The balance of the cruise we spent exploring the ship and enjoying the various areas of the ship. We were very impressed by the Central Park area and enjoyed music under the stars one evening. Embarkation actually went more smoothly than we anticipated, knowing it was a first. Disembarkation went very smoothly and the entire process didn't take thirty minutes for us once our number was called. The food in the dining room was wonderful and the service was excellent. We attended most all of the shows and found them to be excellent. The one word of advice I would give is if you go to the "Come Fly With Me" show, do not sit under the balcony. If you do, you'll miss a good part of the show. Our cabin was clean and well appointed but I do believe there is less storage space than we had in a comparable cabin on the Freedom of the Seas. The closet was smaller and there are fewer drawers. Our cabin steward helped us with some special requests and was always there to help. I missed visiting Grand Cayman on the Western Caribbean sailing as it's one of my favorites. We booked next year's cruise to the Eastern Caribbean the second or third day of this cruise. We will definitely cruise Royal Caribbean again and would highly recommend it to anyone. Read Less

If you like a big city when people do not really care or know who you are this is the one. We had been on this ship and the Allure but this time things really changed. When a ship charges 2 dollars and 50 cents for popcorn that is really going over board. When you have prices of BETTER food printed on the menu, that does not work. You mean you are feeding me the bad stuff. When you take pictures all the time and ask you to buy them that is overboard. When you have a comedian do the same show over and over and then have him in the big theater at the end of the cruise with the same show, something is wrong. This cruise lines has really fallen, if you want a better experience try Princess or Celebrity, they still seem to have what cruising should be like. When you close your buffet at 9 and really have no place to get something to eat late, except a place with jello, you should just get out of the business of taking care of passengers. When you move a show at the last minute to another venue when some people had waited over 30 minutes and then found no place to sit at the new venue, something continues to be wrong. When all the crew does not greet you or when you ask a question and they tell you to take it easy, again something is wrong. When you charge 5 percent on money that you are putting on your card, get every penny and something is wrong. When you can find no place to sit at the buffet, something is wrong. After thinking about this and many other items, something is wrong with you if you take a Royal Caribbean cruise. There are so many better ways to spend you travel dollar. If you want a better option for a low price try Carnival. One good point, the ship did have the best internet that we have ever had on a cruise line. Read Less

I chose this cruise because of the days in port versus the days at sea. The first whole day was at Nassau, Bahamas, then a day at sea, the third day was a Costa Maya, Mexico, the fourth at Cozumel and the final full day was at sea. The weather in late October/early November was rainy and sometimes stormy (except for the last two full days of the cruise). That said, there are a LOT of people (approx. 5500) stuck indoors on this ship with only a limited space to go to be protected from the weather and the problem is, there is no where for them to go. The space allocation on this ship is geared towards the outdoors, which is awesome if the weather is good. Outside you can find a Central Park with trees, several pools and whirlpools, a track, a place to surf man-made waves, rock climbing, a basketball court, a miniature golf course, ping pong tables, a basketball court and more. However, on the inside, the theater is large, but everything else is REALLY small compared to the passenger count and always is overflowing. For instance, I went to an art auction in the schooner bar and there was no place to seat everyone. Furthermore, there were always lines to enter the Windjammer Café if you decided not to go there extra early or extra late. I tried the other venues like they want you to, but the food was cold in those places. The menu was similar to another cruise I had been on (Enchantment of the Seas), but not as tasty nor as fresh. Good luck not standing in line for a show or to play bingo! Lastly, they do not plan enough activities for the 1st day on board - I believe it is because all of their staff is just too busy trying to get you to buy a beverage/internet package. What I liked about the cruise is the entertainment is first rate and I recommend you catch each show. Also, the bands and dance events are first rate. I like RCC, but next time, I'll just keep it small. Read Less

I'st time on the Oasis. Never again. We have been on several other RCCL cruises and are Cabin attendant and dining room staff get a 5 star rating. Guest Relations get a 1, lower if possible. I made all of the show reservations several months in advance. Guest Relations made changes to them without advising us. We found out about them when looking on the reservation site on TV. When we asked about the changes, they said Miami made the changes. Later we found out they (Guest Relations) made the changes. Since the shows were completely booked, we could not go to the ones we had reserved. One of their changes scheduled a show while we were on a RCCL excursion. I was totally disgusted. Food for 6800 passengers must be difficult to make and therefore was only mediocre. With 6800 passengers, you could not find a seat in the windjammer, the Schooner Bar and elevators were crowded.

We were invited to join some of our friends on this cruise and thought it would be an ideal chance to see how the ship would be for our family and their kids. On-board activities were geared to the younger crowd and seemed to be more than adequate. Watching everyone on the Flowrider was actually more entertaining then the shows in the evening. Dining was a big disappointment. The menu options in the dining room were limited and nothing special with the exception of the two formal nights. For the most part food was bland. The onion soup had no flavor. Food in the Windjammer Cafe was only slightly better than Golden Coral and the room service breakfast menu was far too limited. We tried it once and were forced to go to the dining room in order to get a decent breakfast. Burgers were overcooked and tasteless although they may have been better at Johnny Rockets at an additional charge. If I wanted to go to Johnny Rockets and pay for a burger, I didn't need to go on a cruise. The Diamond Lounge served a continental breakfast in the morning that was adequate but did not have any alcoholic beverages available in the morning. So much for a Bloody Mary or Mimosa. The evening get together snacks were often overcooked and dried out. Staffing in the evening was far too small to take care of the crowd and caused us to leave after 30-minutes of waiting for a waiter on one evening. Most folks dressed up for the two formal nights but watching a gentleman in shorts and tennis shoes allowed to dine in the dining room on formal night was more than disappointing. Also, photographers were allowed to block walkways in various areas of the ship including the entrance to the dining room. The high point of the cruise was our entire waitstaff in the dining room. They were fabulous and exceeded our expectations each and every evening. If you just want to get away, enjoy cruising and don't mind the lines associated with a ship that carries 5,500+ passengers you will probably enjoy this ship. Read Less

Just got off a 7 day eastern caribbean cruise on the Oasis of the seas. First off I think the ship is too big. Very immpressive with all the common areas. The balcony and cabins were as advertised. The Royal King bed was very comfortable.Our cabin steward was extremely freindly. She did an amazing job. We spotted her with an additionable tip. Now for the bad. Every one I spoke with said that RCCL had the best food and service. I must have gotten on the wrong boat,because the food in the Windjammer buffet was average. They did not have a sandwitch bar. They did have some cold cuts available.They were cut too thick and were not really good. They had no potatoe or macaroni salads that I saw. Did'nt see any pickles or olives either. The hamburgers they had were horrible.Had to go to Johnny Rockets (extra cost) to get a decent burger. The food in the main dining room fair. The food and service was very dissapointing. The food and service at the specialty restaurants was fantastic. I was a good thing I purchased the 3 night package for these venues. Entertainment was good. I took the behind the scenes which was very interesting. Read Less

This was our sixth cruise with RCI, but our first on the Oasis of the Seas. For a ship that holds up to 7,000 guests, it never really seemed that crowded. Even the elevators moved smoothly, as we seldom had to wait for one that was too full to ride. The food is the typical cuisine found on all RCI ships. The only specialty restaurant we tried was Coastal Kitchen on the 17th deck. My wife and I both ordered strip steaks, which were the worst food we have ever experienced on our cruises. The manager offered to treat us on our next visit, but we declined. For a restaurant reserved for suite holders, it was a disappointment. The shows were very good, especially the ice skating show and the comic. The stage production was Cats, which was well acted, even though half the audience left during intermission. The acapella group was also outstanding We had a junior suite on the 7th deck. The room was clean, had a nice sized bath room with a tub, a walk-in closet, and Queen size bed. The balcony was large, with two chairs and two recliners. The state room attendant was quite efficient, although not as personable as on our prior cruises. We took this cruise while Hurricane Matthew was reeking havoc in the Caribbean. A special kudos to the Captain who not only did an excellent job updating the weather conditions, but deftly steered the ship to all ports with a very smooth ride. Our friends assumed we were on the verge of capsizing, but instead we hardly felt a ripple. Read Less

The best and worst Why do I put just two on five ? It could be one, but there is two good points: The beauty of the ship and the service from waiters and cleaning room team. For the rest it's absolutly incredible to find what I met. A International Ambassador who didn't like foreign customers, a food quality equal to school kitchen, shore excursions who are a shame for the company. Everything is made to make money with customers. You always have to pay to have something or a service. In the beginning of the cruise, complains came from French cruisers, then it was from Canadians and finally from some Americans. So the comment is shame on managers who decided to transform the better ship in the world to a bad experience for cruisers. I made the cruise to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my wife and the dream became a nightmare... Dozen of others cruisers had the same point of view, sade, very sade Read Less

This was our second cruise on the Oasis of the Seas and our 18th with Royal Caribbean. We sailed from Port Everglades on Saturday 9/17 and returned on 9/24. Our room was a Superior Oceanview with balcony room. We were very disappointed when we entered the room as the people that had it the week before us were smokers and had smoked in the room. Naturally the curtains and bedding were permeated with cigarette smoke/nicotine. We tried to get another room but the ship was full and we realized that RCCL could not do too much about the situation. Additionally the folks on the next deck up from us smoked on their balcony! I know that smoking is prohibited in staterooms and on balconies but people just do not care about other folks. We have been on this itinerary a number of times and knew what to expect from Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. One thing that impressed us was the speed at which we were processed for the cruise. It was fast and our luggage arrived at our room before sailing! Well done! When we got off the ship it went just as smoothly..so fast! The crew seemed for the most part to be cheerful and helpful but of course there are a few that are just surly. Our room stewart was great and could not do enough for us. One big thing that we noticed was the quality of the food in the Windjammer was much better than other ships we have recently been on. As for the main dining room, we found the same food to be better in the Windjammer. As repeat cruisers with RCCL we had access to the Diamond Lounge. We were disappointed in the fact that they have changed the house wine to a very sweet red that was horrible! Cant explain why they changed but have an idea it revolves around expense. As usual we were inundated by people/crew trying to sell us stuff. Really a turn off! one final thing, although this ship holds a whole bunch of passengers, we never felt crowded. Also missed the Veterans get together that other ships have for former military mean and women. Sorry this one only gets a 3 Read Less

We have been on numerous RCCL vessels and have maintained our trips to the mid-size ships. We had always heard rumors that the larger ships were too impersonal. Our vacation on Oasis found this to be entirely false. The crew was very personable and attentive. I've been cruising for over 25 years and the last five years I've found the entertainment has slipped, however the Oasis entertainment has restored my faith in RCCL's ability to bring the best entertainment available, back to their customers. Now in saying all of this the lines were a little longer than we were used to, however they were not to be unexpected given the number of passengers and crew members on board the Oasis. The service in the main dining room was excellent, however in my opinion the food quality has slipped. It is still good, however I'm used to RCCL's menu as being excellent. Just a minor down-grade. The only complaint was we had a balcony cabin with 3 people. Normally this would have been fine, however Oasis's cabins are smaller than normal and this made for an extremely uncomfortable cabin situation. Read Less

I was very disappointed with the cruise! We previously had been on the Oasis for 44 days. The Menu was very limited with NO cold soups and limited salads. Room Service was inconsistent. Sometime good coffee and sometimes sludge. Sometimes we got what we ordered and sometimes NOT. We did not know that the Diamond lounge had closed on deck 4 and reopened combined with the Concierge Lounge on deck 11.We did not receive our normal Amenities. A plate of 4 Chocolate Strawberries is it. I was quarantined to my cabin for a couple of days and when finally released, I could not get off the ship in Jamaica due to a miscommunication. The entertainment was great, especially Cats! The Comedy Club acts were fantastic, except for the Headliner named Kennedy who was just horrible. We had a Jr. Suite on the 7th deck and it was amazing. Being in a Jr. Suite gave us the ability to eat dinner in the Coastal Kitchen and we really enjoyed it. The suite and Pinnacle lounge is really nice and it would be nice if Diamond Plus cruisers were allowed usage of this facility. Children, well there were a lot of them 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

We chose the ship as a destination rather than the Islands. The ship is HUGE...TOO HUGE. We had a cabin forward which I do NOT recommend. It is a long hike to activities which are mostly aft. All staff were pleasant and helpful. The ship has many features, but with 6,400 passengers it was crowded. We choose "anytime" dining which proved to be a disaster. When trying to book ahead only once was the reservations phone even answered. Our balcony cabin was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom shower was spacious for a ship. The ice show was the best show I've seen in over 30 cruises. Negative: music in all locations is LOUD and techno for the most part. Aimed at 20 somethings. Simply terrible. Drink prices are bordering on THEFT. $6.95 for a beer plus 18% service charge and the guts to ask for a tip! That works out to about $168 for a case of beer that costs less than $20. The food was plentiful but bland except for Indian dishes. Again we did not use specialty restaurants because of outrageous up charges. Steakhouse was $79pp plus service of 18%. We probably won't cruise Royal again. Read Less

I have wanted to go on the Oasis since it was built in 09, I finally got to go and it is AMAZING!!! It is literally a floating city, walking down the promenade deck is like walking in the mall. ALL of the neighborhoods are AMAZING!! I can't believe how much wet into the design of this ship, inside and out. EVERYTHING was great!!! The food in the MainDiningRoom (MDR) was excellent, our wait staff was there just for me (I felt), I never waited for anything. My glass was always full, as soon as I was finished with one course they brought on the next. Our wait staff were YOGESH & I WAYAN these 2 men were the best team. I am just a gold member and I was treated like the BEST member classification. I didn't have a suite nothing special as far as that goes. But I was treated like I was the most important person on the boat. They were always so happy, and they were there to serve me. We went to the MDR a couple of mornings for breakfast, ordered off their menu (they have a breakgast bar there too) DELICIOUS food then too. BEST SHOW- CATS & Oasis of Dreams (water show)such talent from around the world, ALSO Frozen in Time. BEST EXCURSION- A Sandbar Island Adult Party BEST ONBOARD ACTIVITY- The Quest BEST SPECIALTY RESTAURANT- Chops Grille BEST SPECIALTY COFFEE - Starbucks (I used my Starbucks gift card every morning) BEST FOOD DINING- Main Dining Room BEST QUIET BREAKFAST- Solarium ~~~~~~~~ Here is my added review: I just got back from our cruise on the Oasis 7-2/9/16 AMAZING! St. Maarten, San Juan, Labadee I just watched our sail away on http://portevergladeswebcam.com/replay.php I signed us up for the wave, on the sail away, so the camera man would know to zoom in on us. I also took a pink hat I waved and that also caught his attention. He zoomed in on us and I am so happy I brought it. Some people had banners in their balcony rooms. You are going to have so much fun. On the 3rd day they offered a drink pkg. 10 for $79.00, we don't drink much so the drink package was not worth it for me. We're lucky we used the 10 drinks between my hubby and I. We had the best time. Make sure you have reserved your shows, take soap (we only had shampoo in our room) good thing I had some from the hotel. Pre cruise- We stayed at the Hilton Marina, was so expensive. $30.00 to park that night valet ($25.00 self park)4drinks $76, dinner $75.00. Room was very nice, we'll stay somewhere else next time. Embarkation Day- Arrived at the port @9:30am, I stayed with the luggage while hubby parked in the port lot VERY SECURE well worth the extra money. He walked to the luggage and I and we left it with the porters (Have lots of dollar bills for tips) and we proceeded to go wait for about an hour. Then checked in and went through security we were on the ship 11:00am. Rooms weren't ready til 1:00. Look for your Meet&Mingle invitation, the room steward will leave it in your room. Ours was Sunday 10:00 in Jazz 4 by the casino. I missed it cause I didn't see the invitation, look real good and read everything he leaves on the bed. Went to Chops that night (Best filet mignon ever). Then went to see CATS, OMG what talent :-) Day2 @sea Had room service deliver breakfast, ate on the balcony. Then roamed the ship and chilled the rest of the day. Formal dinner in the Main Dining room(MDR). Day3@sea 4th of July- The Promonade deck with the stores was all decorated, there was live music and a parade. No real goods deals yet in the stores (wait til the last day) Dinner MDR then went to "Oasis of Dreams" water show. INCREDABLE, talented swimmers and performers from around the world. Must see Day 4- Breakfast in the Solium Bistro, on our own we got a taxi (end of the pier) and went to MoHo beach. Saw 7 planes come in, in a 45 minute time span (there was a mock plane crash, practice drill, off the runway and no planes could come in) AMAZING, the videos don't do it justice. Dinner MDR, went to Headliner Show 8:45 Opal theatre. GREAT performers.!! Day5- San Juan (don't forget to use mosquito repellant, walked to the fort then shopped. If you get a chance stop by "Seafoam store" The man there HAND MAKES all of his jewelry and accessories. Located on the corner of St. Cristo Street & Fortaleza Street. Stop by "7ven Seas Jewelry" located on Fortaleza street, as you are walking back to the ship, not far from Seafoam. They will make you a good deal, he went down 75% on what I wanted :-) Day6- Labadee Breakfast Solarium Bistro, hung out on the beach then went on the SANDBAR ISLAND ADULTPARTY. This was the BEST part of the whole cruise. Going to the island we got a complimentary rum punch, also they have a cash bar. Then we floated in the crystal blue water had drinks delivered to us in the water, walked the beach and went shelling (on our own)mats provided. Partied on the way in, great music not 1 song played twice. Lots of music. We met the most wonderful group of people. Dinner- MainDiningRoom MDR Show- "Come Fly with Me" in the Opal theatre it was good. Day7- Breakfast in the Solarium, afternoon watched Frozen in Time! GREAT ice show, (wear a sweater the ice rink makes it chilly in there). It's based on Hans Christian Andersen's stories. I can't believe the speeds of the skaters in that small rink. PACK for Disembarkation. We took are own luggage, so we could leave earlier. Otherwise you leave your luggage outside your door the night before, using the new luggage tags they provide. Disembarkation Day- Breakfast in Windjammer, they opened at 5:30am. Went up got our luggage and were in the "Speedy checkout" line at 6:00am. We were off the ship and walking to our car at 6:35am. Walked straight to our car, did not have to wait on shuttles just went straight to our car, loaded up and left and was home by 12:00 noon ***CAUTION*****CAUTION***CAUTION*****CAUTION***CAUTION*****CAUTION- AFTER CRUISE- There will be Post cruise WITH DRAWALS. SeaPass will not work anymore, NO ONE to cook and serve you. You will not have to tip the BurgerKing girl (just off the boat I got us dinner from BK drive through was automatically thinking "TIPPING?" "hey wait a minute I don't have to tip her, I'm at home now LMAO :-D It's back to reality (UGH!!!) Read Less

They always had my drinks (tea) there before I ran out, I know they had other tables but I felt like I was his only one. They were there for me. I could not have asked for any better service. They were so attentive and friendly, always had a smile and they were happy there be there for me. STATEROOM- Benny was our Steward, our room was always so neat and clean ALWAYS!!!! Benny was also there for me, anything I needed he would make it happen. EVERYONE on the ship (staff) were happy and I always felt like I was the only one. But with 6,000 people, the only time you see the huge mass of people is Embarkation day and Disembarkation day. The ship is so big!!!! At the end of the cruise, I saw people that I had not seen during the entire cruise. That's how big it is. I went with my husband and we had room 6556, deck 6 room 556 This room was close to the elevators and we did not hear anything, we both have bad backs and the bed was great!!!! Here's what we did: St. Maarten, San Juan, Labadee I just watched our sail away on http://portevergladeswebcam.com/replay.php I signed us up for the wave, on the sail away, so the camera man would know to zoom in on us. I also took a pink hat I waved and that also caught his attention. He zoomed in on us and I am so happy I brought it. Some people had banners in their balcony rooms. We had the best time. Make sure you have reserved your shows, reserve your excursions. When we got on the boat and looked up the excursions on the interactive tv, a lot were sold out. Take soap (we only had shampoo in our room) good thing I had some from the hotel. Pre cruise- We stayed at the Hilton Marina (5 minutes from the port.), was so expensive. $30.00 to park that night valet ($25.00 self park)4drinks $76, dinner $75.00 this was about a $300.00 stay. Room was very nice. Embarkation Day- Arrived at the port @9:30am, I stayed with the luggage while hubby parked in the port lot VERY SECURE well worth the extra money. He walked to the luggage and I and we left it with the porters (Have lots of dollar bills for tips) and we proceeded to go wait for about an hour. Then checked in and went through security we were on the ship 11:00am. Rooms weren't ready til 1:00. Look for your Meet&Mingle invitation, the room steward will leave it in your room. Ours was Sunday 10:00 in Jazz 4 by the casino. I missed it cause I didn't see the invitation, look real good and read everything he leaves on the bed. Went to Chops that night (Best filet mignon ever). Then went to see CATS, OMG what talent :-) Day2 @sea Had room service deliver breakfast, ate on the balcony. Then roamed the ship and chilled the rest of the day. Formal dinner in the Main Dining room(MDR). Day3@sea 4th of July- The Promonade deck with the stores was all decorated, there was live music and a parade. No real goods deals yet in the stores (wait til the last day) Dinner MDR then went to "Oasis of Dreams" water show. INCREDABLE, talented swimmers and performers from around the world. Must see Day 4- Breakfast in the Solium Bistro, on our own we got a taxi (end of the pier) and went to MoHo beach. Saw 7 planes come in, in a 45 minute time span (there was a mock plane crash, practice drill, off the runway and no planes could come in) AMAZING, the videos don't do it justice. Dinner MDR, went to Headliner Show 8:45 Opal theatre. GREAT performers.!! Day5- San Juan (don't forget to use mosquito repellant, walked to the fort then shopped. If you get a chance stop by "Seafoam store" The man there HAND MAKES all of his jewelry and accessories. Located on the corner of St. Cristo Street & Fortaleza Street. Stop by "7ven Seas Jewelry" located on Fortaleza street, as you are walking back to the ship, not far from Seafoam. They will make you a good deal, he went down 75% on what I wanted :-) Day6- Labadee Breakfast Solarium Bistro, hung out on the beach then went on the SANDBAR ISLAND ADULT PARTY. This was the BEST part of the whole cruise. Going to the island we got a complimentary rum punch, also they have a cash bar. Then we floated in the crystal blue water had drinks delivered to us in the water, walked the beach and went shelling (on our own)mats provided. Partied on the way in, great music not 1 song played twice. Lots of music. We met the most wonderful group of people. Dinner- MainDiningRoom MDR Show- "Come Fly with Me" in the Opal theatre it was good. Day7- Breakfast in the Solarium, afternoon watched Frozen in Time! GREAT ice show, (wear a sweater the ice rink makes it chilly in there). It's based on Hans Christian Andersen's stories. I can't believe the speeds of the skaters in that small rink. PACK for Disembarkation. We took are own luggage, so we could leave earlier. Otherwise you leave your luggage outside your door the night before, using the new luggage tags they provide. Disembarkation Day- Breakfast in Windjammer, they opened at 5:30am. Went up got our luggage and were in the "Speedy checkout" line at 6:00am. We were off the ship and walking to our car at 6:35am. Walked straight to our car, did not have to wait on shuttles just went straight to our car, loaded up and left and was home by 12:00 noon. Read Less

We have traveled on the Allure of the Seas and wanted to compare the sister ships. We were a group of seven couples on a pleasure cruise made up of newbies and experienced cruisers. Won't do the Oasis again. Older and not as well kept. Chaos seemed the rule of the week. The only positive note I can relate was the dining room staff were outstanding and the food was excellent. Can't say the same for the Windjammer. Cold food and very crowded. Cabin was kept very neat and tidy by a young man who went by Jim since his real name was difficult to pronounce. He was the shining star in a less than friendly staff throughout the ship. Guest Services staff were often confused and lacking in helpfulness. Perhaps it was the language barrier. As usual, San Maartin was our favorite port and we always enjoy our visit there. St. Thomas was a different story. Had a long water taxi ride to St john only to find a taxi ride to Trunk Bay for about a half hour beach stay. Lifeguards closed up early, snack bar (yes, we had to pay for snack and drinks including water) also closed up early and the taxi ride was like Mr Toads wild ride from the old days of Disneyland. To top it all off the "guide on board the water taxi actually requested tips for the crew and even asked for a specific amount. Oh well, we won't be doing that one again. Embarkation and disembarkation were fairly easy but a little slow due to the large number of people coming and going. I highly recommend the luggage valet if you are flying home. We are RCI loyalists and have booked for next year while onboard, but not during a holiday or spring break. Just too many unsupervised children if you get my drift. Read Less

Commercial on TV was enticing and looked exciting; so we booked. The ship is extraordinary! Food and the lovely venues for during the day were great. The dining in the evening was okay...food was just warm and not hot...for example; lukewarm escargots in garlic butter sauce; had to send back for reheating...chicken was the same issue as was the small filet. We did ask the staff for assistance and they were very kind and we did end up with hot meals. Shows were excellent; however, there needs to be more activities for those over 50! for during the day...we do not rock climb or zip glide too much anymore!The ports were lovely...we tend not to "beach" much, love to do minimal shopping, so the quiet time on the ship was appreciated. An observation ....there was no chapel or a Catholic priest available for Mass on Sunday or for daily Mass....we have had priests on-board our other cruises and voyages over the years; this would be a big plus for this ship. In speaking with other passengers , they too, believed that a chapel with services, Catholic and Protestant would have been an added plus! Our most favorite activities were the show CATS, comics, and of course the fantastic parade...such fun for all ages;and, the accomplished entertainers in the various clubs. So many new slots in the casino! almost made "our" donations fun. The staff was excellent and that includes everyone that wore the Royal Caribbean badge! Thank you for a wonderful vacation! we will certainly tell others about the Oasis of the Seas. Read Less

Underwhelming! It has cured me from wanting to go on RCI again This is a really big ship yet I must say it is not as crowded as you might fear. Most all times it seemed no more congested than a smaller ship. This is a short review from 4 "mature" Adults, so use that in your evaluation. The last 6 cruises we have taken Have been on RCI. In terms of service personnel and food they have steadily gone downhill. This ship is a "destination" with a carousel, Rock climbing wall, mini zip line, etc. This is fine as there are only so many ports in the Caribbean, and it could become boring were there not alternate things to do.. Ship is neat, clean and in good repair. Their cabins were likewise, yet their design is poor in terms of closet layout. Typical to RCI's deterioration is their "nickel and dime-ing", such as the removal of pen and paper from the staterooms. Not a big deal until you have a problem and need to write down the information being conveyed over the phone. possibly the smallest TV I have ever seen on a ship. .Staff: Reservations desk were excellent. Getting on and off was fine, Overall someone has waived their magic wand over the crew and removed every last vestige of enthusiasm and natural friendliness On a 1 to 10 scale, our 4 person rating ( about 50 cruises to our experience) yields between a 3.5 and a 4. Not a very good rating. It bordered on annoying. Possibly we could count 4 or 5 of the staff that exhibited any form of friendliness or desire to be performance oriented. They just do not know how to deal in a service capacity. Maybe RCI has switched to a hiring policy that does not include finding friendly or service oriented people. Who knows.. Whatever the case It is markedly not for the better. Frankly the guys slicing bologna at the local market here are friendlier and show more enthusiasm. Four weeks after this sailing we did an MSC out of Miami and it was back to the old style of treatment. Food: Ahhhh more nickel and dime-ing. Overall food quality has deteriorated. Skipping to the bottom line here.... a 3.5 out of 10 would be generous. It seems they are pushing you to their specialty restaurants...pushing heavily. I believe (at least on our cruise) they have resorted to using powdered eggs for their breakfast scrambled eggs. and... they have eliminate the egg cooking station, so i wonder how many portions of eggs go into the garbage barely eaten. Really Chef ?.. Powdered eggs,,, yech!!!!! (Oh, and they were the worst powdered eggs I have ever had) Lots of Pasta was available..... frequently semi cooked. we are not talking al dente here.... we are talking crunchy. More than one station, more than one day. Staff indifferent.... I also think they believe they have mastered a way to make reconstituted chicken. Anyway... that is what it looked, felt and tasted like. Note to chef.... you have not mastered it. BUT you have mastered the excessive use of salt. ) wow... I'm thankful the water was not another one of the pay extra options). A few more: Central Park is great!!! Beautiful!!!! Took a tour of it. Narrator mumbled, talked low and away from the group... so we left... BUT they did at least offer a tour. The place for sandwiches there is GREAT!! and Giovanni's Service, personnel and food was terrific!!!! Great great fillet... these two have the highest recommendations of anything on the ship They don't have: stargazing, enrichment programs, information as to where we were, what we were passing, etc. Part of their service isolation experience I suppose. Entertainment was decent to good. They did "Cats" ( the musical, not the food), and it was very good, as was their water show. Yes there were bright spots. So....overall it was not a "bad" experience. It just was not good. it was as best mediocre. what you might settle for as a cut rate sailing. For a first timer...you might be impressed.... but if you have sailed RCI in the past, perhaps 3 or 4 years ago...or have sailed a number of other lines , you will definitely notice their deterioration in service, attitude and food. There is a lot of competition in the Miami Ft Lauderdale cruise business. MCI has already surpassed RCI, and others will also....unless RCI gets it together. Read Less

We sailed 06 FEB 2016 Eastern Caribbean and we had a great time. I found myself loving the ship more each day. We had a oceanview balcony cabin CAT D6 cabin # 11690. Nice and quiet, bed comfy and decent size shower with great water pressure. We sailed with a group of 37 and all enjoyed the cruise. We boarded the ship at 12pm but had to wait until 1pm to get to our cabins. Next time I will board a little later as it was crowded with everyone waiting. We had early dining at a table for 10 and at times found it hard to hear everyone as the dining room did get noisy. Food was very good with lots of choice. We had eaten breakfast in the dining room early on but later found we like the Central Park Cafe better. Just because you could sit outside and it felt like you were in a park. Loved it! I didn't see Cats ( had already seen it) but my husband did and he left at intermission but his 2 travel buddies stayed and they enjoyed it. Loved the other shows, Skating, Aqua theatre, Come Fly with Me, LOVED IT. So well done. The comedians were so good, my cheeks hurt so much from laughing. Our first day in Nassau unfortunately was cool and very windy. Never left the ship. Friends who did came right back. We enjoyed the Solarium and the travel and shopping talks. ST Thomas we stopped at a different pier than I had been before as the ship is to large. Took a "bus" into town I think it was $4.00 one way as it a bit of a distance. Would have been very tricky to walk as at times no side walk. Weather did get warmer. Walked around and did some shopping. St Maarten, just walk about at the pier and into the town, St Phillipsburg. Easy lazy day. I did the zipline, scared but did it. I know it is a very short distance but that was huge for me. The staff were very kind helping me. Loved to walk about the ship just taking everything in. The promenade was great, the Central Park, the pool decks. Never felt crowded at all. Except when going to dinner at 6pm at the elevators, then it was busy. Otherwise really no issues. I loved this cruise so much we are already booked on the Harmony next Jan 2017. Can't wait to see the water slides! Read Less

I read so many negative reviews I was anxious before boarding, but found everything to be fine (have done more than thirty cruises),. Balcony over Central Park had comfy bed, adequate storage, great steward (Lionel). Ate in MDR, food well prepared promptly served by Valentin and Made. Beef quality not great but everything else, especially fruit soups, salads, desserts first rate. Entertainment---Cats, Ice Show, Aqua show, comedians, Come fly With Me all Broadway or Cirque de Soleil quality-- and all reservations honored. Ports-- beaches fine, it helped that weather was ideal. Always found lounges and seats in Solarium. Breakfast at five restaurants--always good, never a wait, no extra charge. Take the Landscape Architect's Friday morn tour of Central Park--fascinating and free! More to do than we had time for, but great musical combos in Jazz Bar, Big Band, Latino Dancing to end our evenings. Read Less

Bigger does not always mean better. WalMart is huge with lots of choices under one umbrella of groceries, hardware, getting your nails done or even an eye exam and tires. Oasis provides a similar array of choices. It is a beautiful ship but customer service and personality is lacking. It is huge, it is beautiful and offers choices but you will wait in lines forever for activities. Sure it has a carousel, but it is only open a few hours a day. Sure it has a zip line, again only open a few hours a day. It is a handicap accessible ship but not handicap friendly. We took my parents for their 50th anniversary as a gift, they had never cruised before. We had been on 2 recent cruises with Enchantment and Allure with good experiences. We were nearly trampled to death with no special arrangements for handicapped individuals to board. The elevators close so quickly that the wheelchair is constantly getting hit with closing doors that do not seem to sense someone is there. Lining up for shows left wheelchairs near stairs with huge potential fall risks. The impersonal mall-like atmosphere has line dancing, zumba, parades and shopping, but leaves no way for those in wheelchairs or scooters to make their way through. It is chaos. Dining was good. The first night we ate at Chops and it was fantastic, but hugely pricey at $268 for a party of 5. They sang happy anniversary and we received wonderful service. Rooms were clean and steward was on top of everything. LONG lines for customer service constantly. LONG lines for everything. The dining area was so noisy it seemed more like a high school cafeteria with people hollering, it seemed uncivilized. The food was good, but the wait staff seemed stressed and pressed for time and it made it impersonal. I felt sorry for them. There was no joy in their jobs. We went to the Prohibition Party, which again at $35 per person seems pricey. Difficult to get a wheelchair in, and due to impatience of staff getting my mother in, one waiter took it upon himself to press the go button on my mother's scooter, slamming her into the wall and break her toes. She then spent the last 4 days of the 7 day cruise in bed totally black and blue and placed on bed rest by the ship physician. It was awful. What was Royal's response? Why did she allow the waiter to push the button. Like she gave him permission? There was no apology, and for her pain, suffering and missing the cruise, she was offered free medical care when we had already paid for the cruise insurance. The whole process was one of indifference, lacked any compassion, and frankly felt it was disgusting. We will never cruise with Royal Caribbean again and recommend anyone with disabilities to avoid these large mega ships. They staff is stretched too thin to be helpful. Waiting in lines at the buffet or finding a table, there is no wiggle room for wheelchairs or scooters and staff do not have the capacity to help. We had really wanted the occasion to be special. It is very difficult to get to shows - all handicap seating is at the back, and late comers and drunkards are allowed to be at the back, so you get nothing from the shows whatsoever. Read Less

No doubt in recommending this cruse!!! My husband and I enjoyed our 7 days cruise trip on ¨OASIS OF THE SEAS¨ on the Caribbean: NASSAU, BAHAMAS – ST. THOMAS – ST. MARTEEN. According to our experience and disagreeing with some prior reviews from travelers, our opinion is that there are more PROS than CONS about this amazing ship. Our vacation trip began on Nov. 28th and ended on Dec. 5th , 2015. We did our best to enjoy and make profit as much as we could, but this ship is so huge, with so many attractions and the activities go on so constantly that it´s impossible to catch on and enjoy EVERYTHING. No motion sea sick at all. We didn´t use our ¨extra¨ medicines. It never looked like we were on a ship with 6.000 passengers including the crew. PROS CABIN: It was a superior stateroom with private ocean view balcony on deck 6 – 556. It was very nice, plenty of storage for 2 adults. We kept all our clothes in the closet (sufficient hangers), 1 big and 2 carry-on bags under the bed and used the 3 drawers for other articles so that everything was kept out of sight and it always looked neat. NO noises at all. Great sound proofing. It was near the elevators, stairs, Opal Theater, Studio B, Comedy Show, Boardwalk and the Vitality Spa/gym area. The bathroom feels bigger than it looks . The circular shower provides plenty of room. The water pressure and the sliding door were perfect. The air conditioning and the plasma flat screen TV were efficient. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. We recommend 2 adults for this cabin + a child because there´s a sofa bed which would work fine for a kid. We just loved it. The hair dryer worked fantastically. There´s NO need to take your makeup mirror because their mirrors and illumination were great. PLACES TO EAT: We loved having breakfast, lunch and dinner at WINDJAMMER (buffet). Plenty of food for all tastes and likes. Not so crowded, but you have to pick a table and one of your partners stay there while you serve yourself, on the contrary another person could get it . We sampled some of the complimentary restaurants such as: Windjammer, American Icon, Silk, Café Promenade, Sorrento´s pizza, Wipe Out Café, Johnny Rockets (loved the chocolate milk shake!) and thought the food was plenty to satisfy us. We also went to the Solarium Bristo restaurant ($) and had a nice diner. Breakfast room service food OK, arrived on time and still hot! ENTERTAINMENTS: Due to the weather & some technical issues we missed (all passengers did) the so expected show ¨OASIS OF DREAMS¨, but the rest of the shows were very good, such as: ¨FROZEN IN TIME, CATS, FLY WITH ME, HEADLINER –ABBA show , LOVE MARRIAGE GAME etc. There are too many to mention and time isn´t enough to make profit of them. We believe we needed 7 more days to both: enjoy and rest…rest and enjoy! The parade was great. We got a nice spot at the SCHOONER BAR and got nice picks and videos from it. DRINKS: We decided not to purchase any drink packages because we are not a huge soda/alcohol family and we are glad we didn´t buy any because we were plenty satisfied with the complimentary drinks ROYAL CARIBBEAN provides such as: water, lemonade (loved it), ice & hot tea, milk, coffee (better than expected Royal Caribbean brand), a very tasteful mix of strawberry and another fruit (don´t remember which one) juice, orange juice, etc. We also enjoyed purchasing - at our pace- very, very delicious wine on the glass (red & white) for our diners, beers, alcohol & non alcoholic cocktails, tropical martinis, natural orange juices, cokes, etc. We had gotten an award of 100 dls per person when my husband bought the tickets and we used it for the drinks and some shopping, so the extra total amount we had to pay was about 90dls . It was worth it instead of buying the less expensive drink package for about 300dls. and no wine included!!! PORT AND SHORE EXCURSIONS: We mostly stayed at the port areas. In NASSAU we took the Discover Atlantis tour and loved it. In St. Thomas we took the water taxi and enjoyed the beach nearby and town. EMBARKATION / DIBARKATION: They went smooth and fast although lines were very long but, due to the terminal is designed for large crowds everything moved quickly. I personally give a 10+ to the crew members organization the day of departure in the ship. Getting off and on the ship on port days were a breeze. CONS: We didn´t like the 3D movie ¨MAD MAX FURY ROAD¨, my time dining (went 2 nights) because the menu wasn´t appealing and because it took about 2 hours being served, the ice cream parlor does not offer exquisite ice cream for the price they charge. We find much better flavors in our home city. GENERAL OVERVIEW: OASIS is a terrific ship. Very clean . The staff was mostly friendly and helpful, always cleaning, polishing and sometimes painting some areas of the ship. We were very happy on this vacation trip. Because of prior reviews, our expectations were rather low in some aspects but, in the end, everything turned out to be just the contrary. Elevators were not a problem. There was little waiting time given the massive number of people. We tipped our cabin steward twice (at the beginning and end of the cruise), the ones who brought us the room service, one or another waiter at restaurants and to the ones who took care of our luggage in the port. We enjoyed being in the hot tubs located inside the solarium (jacuzzis), the beach pool. They were never crowded. Read Less
