This was my second time aboard Oasis. I am Diamond and a single traveler. Embarkation at Port Canaveral is pretty seamless albeit crowded. This cruise was taken during spring break and there were many family, young children and teens aboard. Overall this was not a concern. Because of the size of Oasis, privacy is sometimes are to find. The Solarium is the best place for adults to sit and relax since it restricted to 18+. You can get breakfast and lunch there as well. First stop was Nassau..did not bother to get off the ship. Not a fan of the port Charlotte Amalie..excursion to ST John’s. Nice boat ride to the island and very informative. The bus tour was aboard a crowded open air vehicle. Made several scenic stops. If you had never been to St John’s this might be for you. St Martin: a tour not to miss!! Royal Fun Family Food Tour!! This was a small (16 people) group We made three food stops: Cheese House where we made and tasted four kinds of Gouda cheese made into Mac and cheese and plentiful champagne; stop two was an eclectic restaurant on the French side called GutSide Restaurant where wwe were treated to a delicious spiced pumpkin soup and a portion of jerk chicken that was outstanding prepared for us by the owner - this place has to be seen; the final stop was at the Carousel Ice cream store where we made Gelato hosted by the owners (Diego and Stella) and were treated to a ride on their full sized carousel. Not to be missed. Oasis also has more than one location for Diamond and above...one on deck 11 and another in Blaze (very quiet and not crowded at all). This makes it very easy to meet and chat. Overall: because Oasis is so huge, you will likely find the main promenade busy most of the time. Shops open only during at sea of course but most bars are open after 9 or 10. The pool areas are as expected crowded and noisy especially around the kids pool. Chair “saving” is actually watched and enforced for a change. I did not use the Windjammer buffet except for breakfast the last day. It was crowded but no lines. A couple of hints: embarkation day - go to Central Park to grab a quick bite.not a hectic as Windjammer. Try the Wipe Out Cafe for breakfast - made to order omelets and eggs plus a soft ice cream machine. The Oasis is as much an experience as it is a cruise. Once may be enuf for most folks but if you want to try it, you should. Read Less

Chose this cruise to experience the Oasis class ship. We have tried the Voyager class before and wanted to see what the differences were. The cruise it self was fantastic. We did have some issues with weather, but that is expected in September in the Caribbean. This did impact a couple of the shows (Cats and the Aqua-theatre Comedy show). The only thing we would say is the ship itself was a bit too large for us. It took a while to get anywhere due to the size. That said, the dining was fantastic. Particularly Central Park 150. This was perfect for us, high end, great service and attentive waiters. Our room steward was great and kept our place clean and tidy. The entertainment options were great. Cats and the Aqua-Theatre are the standouts. However, we also had a great time a the comedy club and at the Jazz bar. The Jazz trio were particularly good. We would most likely go again with RCCL. However, maybe a smaller ship next time. 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

We picked this ship because it is really large. With our Star Class, getting on and off the boat was always easy. Our Genie took care of us so we waited very little. The ship has lots to do, is clean and absolutely beautiful. Our cabin was a suite. There are 2 suites bigger than ours but they don't sleep but 4 or 6. Ours sleeps 8 and was spacious. The views were great, the balcony was amazing and the service was above and beyond my expectations. Being Star Class definitely made us feel like Royalty! Your personal Genie caters to your every need. I had 4 fourteen year old boys and they had a blast. Plenty for them to do socially and they love sports. They were occupied at all times and I always felt they were safe and supervised. They loved the 24 hour room service! The entertainment was awesome. We saw Cats, the Aqua theater water show, the ice skating show, the comedy show and all of the bands and singers. We missed some shows, just ran out of time. All of the shows and bands were great! Some of our group did other events and loved them all. My husband played poker and gave it a big thumbs up. The staff at all levels are very accommodating and kind. They work hard and seem to be happy to serve. The food was delicious and we ate way too much! The shore excursions were typical. Ours was not described accurately for St. Thomas (said 2 beaches but was only 1 and rushed). It was snorkeling too and not many fish. Nassau at Atlantis is crowded and the rain closed it for a bit. But there is a beach and it has jet skis for rent and other water activities. St. Maarten was our best! Sea Trek and they threw in some snorkeling. We saw lots of fish there. Then we found a Zip line on our own afterwards that Royal Caribbean does not sell and it was the best of all. It was a zip line plus you could ride an inner tube down the mountain. Just need more time at all the stops. Typical for a cruise but there is always a rush and of course, lots of people. But everyone was friendly and we always felt safe. Bring cash off ship for extras! Jet skis Etc want cash. Read Less

Service in dining rooms and stateroom attendant was great. - Central Park is beautiful - Water show was fantastic - cruise was an amazing experience. Haiti was great! It was accessible! Lots of places to shop and a buffet for lunch was delicious.My cabin was completely accessible and I made full use of our private balcony. Dinner was scrumptious! French Onion Soup, steak and the best dark chocolate cake I ever tasted. The staff sang Happy Birthday. Our waiter Norrys was great! He was very attentive and so was Joel the drink server! On our last nightJoel performed magic tricks with napkins and Norrys played the guitar! - Service in dining rooms and stateroom attendant was great. - Central Park is beautiful - Water show was fantastic - Friends of ours got married onboard. The wedding service, staff, food etc were great. - Best filet mignon, could cut it with a knife at Giovanni’s. Cons - These are all minor issues and wouldn’t deter us from booking another cruise on this ship. Read Less

Oasis of the Seas has a great crew. the ship needs refurbishing its 9 years old. saying that I still had a great time. My only beef is that when I travel alone they set me at a table for two and I end up eating alone. this has happened over and over again. if i want to eat alone i would stay home. when I book my cruise I ask for early dining and a large table. I did not like the show CATS and walked out after 30 minutes. a half hour later i saw a line 9 persons wide walking out. The comedy show was very good along with the water show, ice show come fly with me. Come fly with me had props that i have never seen in a broadway type show. it was great. I have a suggestion for RCL open up my time dining and start a large table for those of us that are single. PS being diamond plus made boarding easy with a small line. Read Less

Booked this cruise to hang out with people I met on a prior cruise. I had been on this ship before, and it was okay. I was telling the other people about shows, restaurants, etc on the ship, which they were anxious to experience. $53.00 per person for Chops Grill, $9.95 + 18% gratuity at Johnny Rockets? I can get a better steak dinner on land for equal or less, and can certainly go to a good burger joint for less than the cost. Crew seemed inattentive to guests needs after day two, which I figured out the reason at the end of the cruise when I saw hundreds of crew members waiting to board the ship, as I was getting off as early and fast as I could. Preference is definitely the Voyager and Freedom calls ships, where service seems to be much better, without all the price gauging. Read Less

I felt like I was at the county fair for a week straight. Masses and masses of people everywhere. But on the other hand........ The shows were really good, and worth attending, although you have to make reservations to attend a show. Every show was packed without any empty seats, so don't expect to come late, and get a seat. I really enjoyed the diving show,. These divers are all national or Olympic Team divers, and the show was excellent, and not to be missed. If you have kids, this is the perfect cruise for them. Johnny Rockets, pizza, ice cream, characters in costume, Santa came, the Captain was funny and nice, the officers sang Christmas Carols, Main dining room food was not great, although the specialty restaurants were all delicious. We ate at the chef's Table one night, that was good. All in all if you have a family with kids, it's a good cruise. If you are an older single adult, I'd recommend a different line,especially if you are trying to relax and have quiet and luxury at the same time.- Celebrity Cruises would be my choice, but at least I tried the larger ship. Cabins were smaller than Celebrity Concierge, no overhead bin storage, and the TV had limited channels. Crown and Anchor club has a nice happy hour, but there were so many people in the Diamond lounge. We still all had a great time, the staff there was personable, polite, and very helpful with everything we could have asked for. Best to go at 4-4:30 if you want a seat. An appetizers every night. Now I can say, been there, done that! Read Less

As a young single senior, I sailed by myself. Overall, it was a nice cruise with the following exceptions: I found most of the bar and general staff not to be very friendly or social. Also, while the Grande Restaurant was nice, the service was marginal and the food was not quite up to par as on my previous Royal cruises. The Windjammer was lacking in variety of food and most of the hot food was cold. It was difficult at times to find a table as they were not cleared off from the previous people. I did not attend any of the shows as I have seen them on previous cruises. If history repeats itself, they are usually outstanding and should not be missed. If you want a little more peace and quiet, visit the Solarium for sunbathing and relaxing. It is for adults and provides lots of lounge chairs, a very small dipping pool and hot tub. Unfortunately, the pool was drained for repairs several days before the end of the cruise. As far as ports go, I love spending the day at Labadee. It includes a modest BBQ, water activities and zip line. I rented a small cabana with two lounge chairs for the day. I believe the price was in the mid $40 range for two and well worth it as the sun is intense. While the ship is huge, I found it manageable to maneuver. I like the late dining, however, it makes it difficult to plan your shows. Also, since dining is over so late, it made it difficult to find a seat in the more popular bars at times. Overall, I think it is a great ship for families and couples. There are tons of activities for the kids and teens. As a single female in my 60’s and traveling by myself, there really weren’t any specific activities geared towards me. However, I knew that would be the case, so I just wanted a week of relaxing and doing what I wanted to do and when I wanted to do it. I did have the opportunity to talk to many people and was seated at dinner with four other single ladies in the same age group. A cruise, or any type of travel for that matter, is what you make of it. Don’t stress over the small things and just enjoy yourself! Read Less

We booked this cruise for my Birthday and I was a little apprehensive, I didn't want to be the youngest there, I wasn't sure how I would feel being stuck on a ship for a week at a time and so on. All I can say is, when we got to the Port and I seen how HUGE the ship was I was in total shock, I just never ever thought the ship would be that big. Once we stepped on to the ship I was in total awe and admiration over it. The reception/lobby area is absolutely gorgeous! The sparkling staircases and all the buzz of everyone finally in holiday mode! I was made up. We purchased a drinks package and it was well worth the money, all the cocktails you wanted you could have! Amazing. I actually felt like I was on a really luxury holiday and I couldn't believe it! Staff - polite and professional. I was really sick with sea sickness the first two days, no fault of the ship at all but the sea was quite choppy then. The staff were so helpful letting me know whats best to eat, drink, take to help the sea sickness calm down. Our room attendant was called Ethan I think, we were Deck 14. He was so sweet and never passed us without asking how I was feeling and how the holiday was going! Amazing service. Even the staff in the bars were fantastic always keeping your drink topped up and even doing tricks! There was a guy in the bar in central park and he had us cracked up for hours each and every day!! Best bunch of people work on this ship!! Cabin - Spotlessly clean and spacious. The only thing I didn't really like was there was no iron in the room and if you needed to iron clothes, it was at a cost. Entertainment & Activities - Fantastic entertainment was on board. We didn't get a chance to go and see/do everything even though we were there for a week. Ice-skating, water shows, ice shows, golf, games room, flow rider, zipline I mean come on !! this ship had something for everybody. Dining - Food was spectacular!! Absolutely amazing, I would recommend going to the restaurant for breakfast for a fancy eggs Florentine. Amazing. The formal night was like steak and lobster - the food is seriously amazing! even grabbing a slice of pizza on your way to bed was something I looked forward to, thanks for the 10 lb extra though Oasis haha! Ports - please people if you are going to Jamaica and want to chill on a beach go to margaritaville!! it is amazing, the staff are such good fun and they help you have the best time everrrr!! I cant wait to go back already! If you contemplating this ship just go and book it! It is a fab ship with lots to do! You will never ever get bored. If you don't book this ship, you will regret it!
