Friends encouraged us to try Oasis. Despite what people say, this ship is very big and crowded! Lines for everything, disembarking at various ports , especially Nassau, was a disaster - essentially a mob scene - all that was missing were a few burning cars !! Service was good , but very impersonal. The staff was trying , but I sensed they were overwhelmed. Food was mediocre at best! On the plus side , the entertainment was excellent. It was a shame that half the audience left Cats at intermission. The cast was excellent . I guess the drink package was more important! Shore excursion in St Martin was excellent. We did the Royal food tour . Other excursions were very average. If you are traveling with children and don’t mind crowds and need lot of stimulation then Oasis is for you . If you are looking for a relaxing cruise , look to the smaller ships - Radiance class.

Big and crowded
