Wanted to see some of Europe and a cruise seemed like a good way to start. This is a port heavy cruise with very long days. You can see lots but in stops like Rome you will get just a very small taste and it's a great deal of driving and walking. Private tours seem to be the way to go to get the best of each stop. We had an upgrade to a mini suite which was a welcome addition of space. The ship was fully repaired after the accident and you would never know it was so crushed. All shows and activities were running. As there is such a short period of evening time some things were not offered every day. They did try to have everything going on the sea day though. We enjoyed all the dining venues and did not do any pay dining except for Chops Lunch on the first day as we purchased The Key. The Key to us was a great benefit as we had excellent seats for all the shows we booked, full internet streaming and priority disembarking and transfers at all ports. One thing to note is there is No Lobster offered in the Dining Room on Mediterranean schedules. You could purchase it along with a couple of other specialty items separately on any night though. The service and crew were always great and they only disappointment seemed to be with the sports crew. We quite often felt like an inconvenience to them, especially on the zip line. The ship is kept very clean but does need the dry dock as planned later this year. New carpets in rooms and some refinishing of chair cushions but other than a little worn they were fine. Our room steward kept everything stocked and neat in our cabin. The entertainment was good and with The Key we had front row seats for everything. We were even able to enter on occasion without reservations to an earlier show sitting then what we had booked because of it. There weren't many small children on this cruise and I would imagine it would be hard in port with strollers. The roads and venues are really not very wheelchair or stroller accessible. We saw people really struggling in locations like Pompeii. Cinque Terre has a great deal of walking involved and most in stairs and uneven cobblestone streets. Unbelievable beautiful though. We loved this itinerary and would recommend it. Just remember you can't do everything and will need to choose your favorites or stay on in Europe for a few extra days. Private tours give you a much better look at the sites as the RCCL buses can't get into the best stops due to the small winding roads especially on the Amalfi Coast. We used Italy Tour Sharing (Joe Bananas) and they were amazing. Read Less

This cruise was chosen as a celebration of our anniversary, and remembrance of several difficult years as family caregivers. This was a destination vacation to Europe and this cruise looked like it would introduce at an efficient way. We arrived in Barcelona 2 days early to explore the city. Having concerns about not being able to speak Spanish within minutes we knew that this wasn't going to be any problem. The people of Barcelona could not be more friendly. We walked around a lot. It is an easy city to navigate. The Cathedral is amazing in the Gothic. The Picasso Museum doesn't get the love from tour guides as it should. If all you know is his Modernism you should check out his work and this building. A terrific visit. We ate at several cafes off the La Ramblas. Tapas are everywhere so stop have 1 or 2 and find another place. We did like Set de Born restaurant in the Gothic. The Iberco Ham, and grilled squid were the best we ever had. On Sunday we took a cab to the ship. About 20 EUR from center city. Moving through the queue was about 20 minutes. Being that the Oasis was dry docked for a month we were able to go to our cabin. Can I just say here, they say the ship is big, you see video and pictures of the ship. But when you first see the ship, it is huge! We had cabin 11650. Our Steward Deen was there to greet and welcome us. Deen was warm and engaging, he made us feel so welcomed. We wanted for nothing the entire week. We were assigned to American Icon for my time dining. Through out the week we had several servers. Each one was terrific. We did not have one dining experience that wasn't excellent. Where we live we can get some of the best food around, from steaks, any ethnic, seafood. When I had read reviews about the quality of food we were hesitant. The food was well prepared and delicious. Was the prime rib like Keene or Peter Lugars, no, but it was cooked the way I like it and was delicious. I vacation on Cape Cod, no seafood is going to be like that. The fish dinner on Oasis was delicious. We enjoyed ourselves. The first day was Mallorca. We didn't schedule any excursions. We took the bus and went to the Cathedral. It is spectacular. We used audio guide for here. We then walked the area and had a light lunch and people watched. The 2nd day was Marseille. Again we took the bus and walked around the city. It is quite hilly. Again we stopped at a bakery facing the Port and had a light lunch. The 3rd day was Florence. We used RCL tour, the history of Florence. It is a 90 min bus ride from the Port to Florence. Our guide, I forget her name, I'm sorry. Was terrific both on the bus and off. You park the bus and then walk. You walk a lot! There is so much to see and she explains what your looking at. We had lunch in a small restaurant as a group. Enjoyable meal meeting fellow cruisers. At the accadmie we were broken up into 2 groups and got a new guide. She was terrific also. You go through security check point and enter the museum. There is a lot of art here, but everyone is fixated on David. It is incredible. You stay awhile and then its back to the main square for an hour. You can shop, visit Church of Santa Croce. We decided cocktails in Florence was what we needed! Walk to bus. Sleep for an hour and a half. Shower, go to dinner, go to bed. Next morning is Rome. The 4th day. As you can see we are not going to see many shows. Up by 5am, coffee at Prommenade Cafe, light snack. Gangway by 730. This tour we joined was by Italytoursharing. This tour and tomorrows were both terrific independent Tours, we would highly recommend them. You get in a 9 passenger van and drive to Rome, about an hour away. The guide narrates while driving in the craziest traffic we have seen.Rome is Crazy traffic wise!! The driver is worth the money! The Colosseum was taken off the itinerary because of new security measures, but we park across the street and have a great view. The driver takes us to a cafe for a bathroom break and have the best cappuccino while waiting we now have an hour before going to the Vatican. The driver suggests we walk to the Trevi Fountain. He can't drive there. We don't exchange phone numbers within the group or driver. 2 people from the group separate from us and go on their own. We walk to the fountain. Its like Times Square on New Years Eve! We will never find this couple. Now we start getting harassed by the pan handlers, beggars, sellers of crap. One of the girls in our group has a guy try to get into her shoulder bag. Another lady yells at him and he disappears into the crowd but nothing is taken. This place is a dump, I'm done. We walk to the where the van is and the other couple isn't there. An hour later we meet up. Off to the Vatican. We go through the Sistine Chapel and there is nothing like it. It's what you come to Rome for. Because we lost an hour at the fountain we have limited time at St Peter's, but we got to go in and are quite happy. Back to the ship and eat. Tomorrow the last day Naples. Again up by 6. Coffee, more coffee. The Terminal in Naples is the most god awful facility we encountered. You are forced like livestock to walk the length of the terminal. Or take elevator and walk length of terminal. Get to ground level only to be forced to walk back from where you came from to walk past the crappy souvenir shops. It's worse than anything Walt Disney could dream of for picking your pocket. Envision elderly people and young families with strollers schlepping for 20 minutes just to get a bus.. A big middle finger Italian hello to the operators of the Naples Port. You and RCL should be ashamed of yourselves for such a blatant money grab. We took Italy tours sharing again. Our driver, Massimo, was terrific. He suggested driving to Positano first. Shop and have breakfast. Then drive back to Sorrento and have lunch. Then finish in Pompeii. This tour was a calm, sightseeing delight. The scenery is incredible. The food was fantastic. We had a great time. At Pompeii we met our guide. There were some guests that had mobility difficulty. The guide made sure everyone saw what they wanted and if you didn't want to go, you were put in a comfortable spot to wait. A great excursion for the end of our week. Saturday was the 1 cruising day on our cruise. It was windy and cool. There weren't many people in the pools or outside bars. This was the only time you notice how many people are on the ship. We shopped on board. Had some drinks and enjoyed the day. Sunday we had breakfast at the windjammer for the last time and off the ship by 8 am. We had an amazing time. We are already thinking of setting up another cruise but not as heavy on the itineraries. RCL Oasis of the seas, and its employees provided a terrific vacation and we couldn't be happier. Read Less

This is a very nice ship and the crew is very friendly but as far as ports this cruise leaves a lot to be desired. If you like to do ship excursions then this ship will work for you. But if your like me and like to go out on your own and explore away from the hoards of shipmates I would be warned. This ships itenerary is almost designed to force you to use thier excursions. Here is why. Marsielle, LaSpezia, and Civitevechcia have little to no transportation from the port. Marsielle had none. and RCL shuttle drop you off away from the sights. It was a $40euro taxi ride to town. in LaSpezia you must take their shuttle to the port entrance, then its either a $25 taxi and 45min walk to the train station where there is a good chance you will encounter a pick pocket. then a hour train ride to Pisa. In Civitevechcia (Rome) RCL provided 3 busses for 3000 passengers to the city center which was 20min away. (2 hour bus wait) then then drop you off to a taxis area for a $25 taxi ride to the train station. for a hour ride to Rome. RCL has designed this cruise and its time in port to discourage any freelance exploration. While the itenerary will say 12 hours in port. after disembarkation, busses, taxis, trains, and return you are lucky to get 5 hours. and if you get stuck on the extraordinarily poor Italian train system like we did it could be a expensive day.

Paid top price for this cruise on the Oasis of the Seas from Barcelona to Rotterdam and bought a drinks package how if I had know what I know now after just arriving home I would have spend my money on another cruise. The main problem is that the ship was going into dry dock in Rotterdam and I suppose that Royal Caribbean just wanted to make as money as they could whilst sailing over from the USA and I total agree with other reviews is that is a fantastic ship but badly let down with customer service it as if the crew had lost interest in any form of service .Also with the drinks package the last thing I expected was as the cruise went on to be told we have sold out of that drink or there was none left .The food was well poor in all the restaurants along with the service, for example ordered ice cream but no spoons yet I was offered a fork by one member of staff and when some spoons did appear the ice cream had melted ,dropped a knife on the floor and the waiter just picked it up and walked off with it and did not bring a replacement even though he saw it what had happened. The list goes on and on it is if the crew where just not interested in the guests. The best bit was when we docked in Rotterdam we had to be off the ship by 7-30am for a transfer by coach to Amsterdam airport for a 2pm flight all booked through Royal Caribbean even driving through the rush hour traffic we still arrived at the airport by 9am that is 5 hours before our flight then to discover that checking in for our flight Royal Caribbean had forgot to sanction the E ticket not only for my wife and I but another 15 people on that flight , so asked the Royal Caribbean people at the airport who even though they where all dressed in the Royal Caribbean uniform and holding up boards with Royal Caribbean on it said it was nothing to do with them as they where just the handing agents, so after two hours of phoning Royal Caribbean myself on my mobile phone and had given them a BA email address at the airport it did after now a more waiting a total of four hours come through , Never again will I sail with Royal Caribbean as they treat there guests like cash cows sell sell every where on the ship and once you are off the gangplank wash there hands of you.Perhaps I was expecting to much but service and manners cost nothing just after all that's what we pay for and just because it is a big ship does not escuse they way they treat guests Read Less

OVERVIEW: magnificent ship architecturally - really amazing - offering good shows, live music and activities - but that is it - otherwise a real disappointment. The lack of customer service started even before we set sail. BOOKING: we ( 2 adults) booked early direct with RC in order to get the boardwalk balcony cabin that we really wanted. Paid, booked shows and my time dining, printed out luggage labels and documents- some days later went to print out setsail document only to find a completely different cabin number showing up - a cabin that we had no interest in. To cut a very long story short, it would seem that someone had changed the cabin without any contact with us at all - no explanation, no apology - nothing. After many phone calls and emails I finally was told that the change was because they had decided to revitalise certain cabins whilst at sea and I was eventually offered a cabin more in line with the original one I had booked. This did not excuse the change without notice or explanation and so I complained to the CEO's office. This resulted in an apology and an onboard credit. The credit did not appear automatically and we had to get the front desk to chase it up - appeared on day 4! (Having booked shows and dinner times to suit might as well not have bothered as most of shows had changed their times????????????????????? ) We live in Spain and so drove to Barcelona and parked in the Twin Towers parking, which is quite close to the cruise port – a short taxi ride away. Check in was efficient and took no time at all . Actual embarkation was a bit chaotic. DINING was a disaster. Even having a my time reservation system there was invariably a sizeable queue at the main dining room. The main dining room was not open for lunch on port days and remaining lunch time facilities totally inadequate - especially the Windjammer. Having paid over 3000 euros for 2 people for a 5 day cruise I was not amused at having to search for somewhere to sit and then to have to listen to announcements telling guests to vacate tables as soon as they had finished. There were other venues but again with seating problems. All in all quite an undignified experience. Food offerings overall were adequate – no more. CABIN and bathroom adequate but very basic. There are drinks available to buy in the fridge but it seems you are expected to use the toothbrush glasses. No what I would call bath towels - hand towels and towels a bit bigger than a hand towel. Bedding a disgrace - the duvets were just bags of large lumps around empty spaces with no filling at all - the attendant told me they had always been that way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The mattress topper hanging out of an unzipped cover. We booked this mini cruise primarily to see the ship - which we did, and size wise we thought it incredible - but we did not expect to be so disappointed with everything else. We would have done the behind the scenes tour but at $150 we thought it over the top. Maybe our expectations were too high - we were expecting something better than a floating holiday camp. We were expecting the customer service and organisational standards of other cruises (including a previous RC cruise on Navigator of the Seas) Will revert to less sensational but more enjoyable cruise ships.   Read Less

We used the opportunity of Oasis being in Europe for some days before going on dock in Rotterdam. Overall very impressive, most things said by other people, just to add: - sometimes you miss the feeling of being on a ship. E.g. all restaurants (besides Windjammer) facing inside the ship. While having a brilliant steak at Chops Grille you look out on bushes and trees of central park. - Windjammer Marketplace was too crowded all the time. We tried several times to go there but found always a long queue. And I hate queueing!!! We were told by other guests that there were announcements within Windjammer to make space for following guests - so hurry up while eating????! - we ended up in Chops Grille / IZUMI / Seafood shack.... all of them offer delicious food but you have to pay extra (And by the way, we do not like the main dining room on Royal Caribbean Ships - too big too crowded too much conversation with other guests and waiters) Nevertheless it was astonishing that there is plenty of space on the ship - even on days at sea (if you don't mind the wind go to the sun deck on deck 14 - lots of space!). We had a good time, but prefer smaller ships for future cruises Read Less

Review OA in Europe Oasis was coming to Europe. And we had to book it! It really didn’t matter where the ship was going to, we had to be on it! So we booked the day it went on sale in the UK in April 2013 and then had 17 months to wait and plan…. We flew out to Barcelona the day before and spent one night in the Acevi Villaroel which is a nice little hotel with a small pool, around 10 minutes’ walk from Placa Catalunya. We had drinks at the rooftop bar at Hotel 1898 and then a very good dinner at a restaurant called Teller de Tapas in the Ramblas. Recommended. The next day it was up early and in a taxi to the port. So excited to see Lady O for the first time and she did not disappoint. In fact she was actually berthed at 2 of the terminals in Barcelona and in the run up to the cruise we had received several mailers to advise us. If you were in an Aft cabin you went to Terminal B and if you were at the front you went to Terminal A. As we approached the cruise terminals there were banners hanging from the lampposts reminding you to know which one you were heading for. Cab drivers were stopped and given a card with A or B on it so they were only allowed into the correct terminal..It really was very well organised indeed. Check-in and boarding was possibly the swiftest we have ever known and we were on board by 11.15. Overwhelming, stunning, impressive, how on earth does she float and move….. I think we ran out of superlatives to describe her. But most importantly our reoccurring thoughts were “how on earth do they hide 5000 people” as we had been most concerned by crowding issues. Especially as our most recent cruises have been with Azamara! The organisation and the flow of people throughout the ship was amazing. OK it was a little crowded on the RP for 70s night and in the Solarium for the Vodka party but you would expect that! We had a Boardwalk balcony on deck 11 and it appears that the cruisers of Europe are not aware of the Secret Balconies as we had it pretty much to ourselves for the duration. It is such a shame that these are being turned into cabins during her dry dock, so we feel really lucky to have experienced it. We had pre-booked 3 restaurants, and we got $30 OBC for this, and we had also pre-booked all the shows we wanted to see (despite being told by the Guatemala office that pre-booking shows no longer happens on Oasis and you book on board…). .However we never actually went to any show at the time we booked, we just went at different times, we were never checked at entry so I’m not really sure about the point and pressure to prebook. As Diamond members we enjoyed the services of the charming Ed in the DL. The DL is going to change to a location in the Dining room, which is another shame as it was nice to sit out under the umbrellas and watching the action below on the RP. The new DL will have sea views though. We noticed that the Diamond gift has also been changed from the cellophane wrapped gift box to a simple 2.5oz packet of Butter Shortbread Cookies. Perhaps an economy drive, but we did bring the packet of cookies home with us whereas we never opened or sampled anything in the cellophane wrapped box. The internet options were annoying in so much as we had a credit of $29.95pp but there was no plan to that value so you either bought a cheaper plan at $19.95 or lost the rest. I got 60 minutes for $29.95. There was an unlimited plan for the 5n voyage for $99.95. Other niggles we found were, that despite requesting our bill to be settled in $ and despite highlighting this option on the SetSail pass in bright dayglo orange, they seem to have missed this and we were invoiced in GBP. We also had issues with the photos – where we requested one to be printed and it was not of us! When I took it to the desk the lady said ‘are you sure this isn’t you’! Doh…..So that didn’t work very well! There is obviously no one proof reading the Cruise Compass as there were some glaring errors – such as the port being listed as ‘Barcelona, Spain, Florida’…..and announcing that you can see a show again on Saturday. Very nice to know but we got off on Thursday. It is little things like this which need a little more attention to detail. That aside, the cruise itself was fabulous. We were impressed, we thought the quality and variety of food offerings on board were excellent. We had lunch at Giovannis when we boarded, which is a good tip picked up on CC. This costs $15pp at lunch; and then had a light tasty Tapas meal in Vintages that night. This only cost around $15 for both of us as we had a few dishes and they are very reasonably priced at $3 -£4 each. We had a wonderful meal in 150 Central Park ($40pp) where the chocolate desert was the best I have ever tasted, and we also enjoyed the Seafood Shack (we don’t have anything like that in England). We also dined in Izumi which has ALC pricing and this came out at around $45. We also ate dinner at Chops; the menu has changed, it has been cut back, and despite having a $35pp cover charge, the were additional steaks at a further supplement, and the size of the fillet steak has shrunk from 8oz to 6oz….You no longer get the lovely basket of various breads and dips; now it is a prezel bread and some rather nasty fishy tasting butter. This was the most disappointing meal IMO. I am also aware that we paid for every dinner on board as a supplement and did not dine in the MDR; and this is because we were trying to sample as much as possible in the 5 short nights. We would never be this extravagant usually! That said, most venues were empty. Perhaps the Europeans begrudge paying extra on top of their cruise fare?! One lunch we sampled the Solarium Café which we found a little bland and disappointing (so much so that I have now cancelled our reservation for dinner there when we sail on Quantum). We got our burgers at Johnny Rockets, and also we had lunch at the Park Café but sadly never tried the famous roast beef sandwiches; we had breakfast there a few times, and also had breakfast at the Wipe Out Café where you can get eggs/omelettes to order. We only ate in the MDR once and this was at the Dreamworks Character Breakfast. There were not many children on board so I think this event was a bit ‘flat’…..and I think that now they charge $10pp for this experience it is not worth it. We were also impressed with the décor and art on board, and several little features reminded us of the Solstice class of ships which we love, such as the bathroom layout, the little leg shaver bar, and the dim lights in the bathroom. We had the drinks package and found the choice of wines and cocktails to be better than we expected. I was amazed that drinks like frozen berry margaritas were included We had planned our activities on board, we even had a spreadsheet to follow….after all, it is hard to fit in 24 bars in 5 days (but we did try…). We thought the shows were very impressive, perhaps some of the best we have ever seen on a cruise. The Oasis of Dreams was amazing viewed from ‘above’ from the secret balcony and we just loved Come Fly With Me. But it was only a 5 night cruise and there was so much we never did, we did not drink in Boleros or the Schooner Bar. We did not get to the Comedy Club, the Jazz Bar, we did not watch the Ice Show, we never set foot in the WindJammer…heck, we will just have go on again…! Disembarkation was equally smooth. We had arranged to leave our luggage with DW Consigna. Their stall was right outside the terminal and for €10 per bag they took our luggage and delivered it to us at the airport 10 hours later. An excellent service. We caught the Blue Bus over the bridge for €2pp and then had a very enjoyable day walking around Barcelona. We had drinks at the impressive W Hotel, a wonderful Tapas lunch on the beach, then we walked back via the old town to catch the airport bus for €5.90pp back to the airport. In summary. Excellent, Overwhelming, Stunning and Impressive!   Read Less

The ship is an engineering wonder with magnificent facilities but the service on board was appalling because it is apparent that the officers are conspicuous by their absence and do not communicate with the crew. The cruise on The Oasis was our seventh with Royal C and the short cruises they offered from Barcelona afforded the opportunity to experience first hand the ship that has received so much press but without the need of travel to The United States. The exceptional service and standards we have experienced on their other ships is not available on the Oasis and the safety drill at the start an absolute shambles - staff gave guests 3 different times for the compulsory drill resulting in chaotic conditions on the 5th deck where the drill is held. Guest services are a joke and guests can expect to queue for over an hour because the desk staff are not supervised by an experienced officer and passengers should expect long delay if they require food in the restaurants included in their package when the ship is at sea We requested on their form the 9.00am departure from the ship and received tags for 6am resulting in the need to queue at guest services for 1 hour and 20 minutes to effect an alteration   Read Less

Firstly, I would say that I am not easy to please. I'm not particularly proud of this fact but it's important to know when reading this review. So, here we go:- This ship is amazing, we had a fantastic time. Yes, the show times changed but they did give you plenty of warning and you could easily re-book them. The main production was Hairspray which was absolutely fantastic. I have seen many West End productions and this was easily as good, if not better, than many. The Aqua Theatre was amazing. We saw the main production and then the 'comedy' production, both of which were fantastic. Costume changes and other small touches that made all the difference from being a good to a spectacular show. Exactly the same comments apply to the Ice show which was also spectacular and a feat to put on. We had a cabin overlooking Central Park. Before embarking, I was a little dubious thinking there may be a few trees and plants but nothing overly special. I was completely wrong it was done amazingly well with all the plants and tree together with the restaurants and cafes which really did give it a 'Park' feel. Sounds ridiculous but it's true. The promenade was also amazing. We ate at all most of the speciality restaurants and really enjoyed them. Vintages was a fantastic find with a wine list to die for!! I could go on but I think you get the drift. If you want to escape from reality for a few days, this is the ship for you! Have fun!! Read Less

I've been on the Allure of the Seas 3 times before my first trip on the Oasis of the Seas, so it was nice to see what differences there were on the Oasis. I am writing a pictorial review on http://cruiseforums.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?p=44201225 which goes into more detail of what I did day to day. My overall experience on the Oasis of the Seas was good. Because of the short trip, I didn't expect an exceptional service, but just the basics. I barely saw my stateroom attendant during the week, but he was helpful when required. Dinner service was ok, but this is something I have experienced 3 times on the Allure of the Seas, so wasn't expecting a lot. I am starting to take the hint that the "Recommendation of what to eat" was pretty much rehearsed and not something that the table waiters would really recommend. I could be wrong, but it's no big deal. There were a couple of days of rough seas around Italy, but nothing serious. It took me 3 days after the cruise for me to get used to being on land again. Overall my experience on the cruise was good. The 2 excursions I took were ok (Olive Oil tasting in Rome and a visit to Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii). I will probably revisit Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii outside a cruise to spend more time there and explore the area fully. The cruise director was ok (Drew). Reminded me of Joey from Friends, but without the personality. I would probably need to experience him as CD again before I can change my mind. Read Less
