  3. Oasis of the Seas
On March 20th, 2010 my family and I took a much anticipated cruise of the Oasis of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. This cruise was planned months in advance and there was so my hype that myself and the rest of my family counted the days until we departed. The ship, Oasis of the Seas, was magnificent. It was beautiful from stem to stern. Everything was first class. My question to Royal Caribbean is.."why would you allow people to smoke almost everywhere and not enforce your no smoking rules?" All of the bars were filled with cigarette smokers, no special ventilation to carry the smoke out of that area. It flowed into the public areas "Central Park" and "The Boardwalk". They had a wonderful, creative floating bar which moved from the lower Boardwalk and upward. You could smell the stench of cigarette smoke everywhere. If that wasn't bad enough, I had $ 700.00 stolen from my cabin. I phoned to let Royal Caribbean know and their Customer Service person said if I didn't make a report before leaving the ship, there is nothing they can do about my "alleged accusation of theft". I put my primary purse with Credit Cards, passports, etc. in the Safe provided. I had a secondary purse that I put in the dresser in our Cabin with odds and ends,including $ 700.00 Canadian money. It did not occur to me that the Oasis of the Seas Staff would go through our personal belonging that were out of sight. I did not realize the money was missing until we arrived home and I looked for money to pay our taxi fare here in Canada. On board ship, I only used our room card for any charges that were needed and put on my credit card. When we went off ship, we used US dollars. When I told my husband of the money missing, he said that the couple in the next cabin to us asked him if anything had gone missing from our Cabin. Unfortunately, my husband didn't say anything to me or I would have checked and would have found the money missing. I never in a million years thought that someone would steal Canadian money, however, I now realize that our money is on par with the US dollar. My thoughts now are that I would like to make everyone who is cruising to lock up everything in your safe because there are dishonest people working on those ships. Oasis of the Seas is a beautiful ship. Don't let smokers ruin it for everyone else!!! When a client has a complaint, don't as much call them a liar.

Cabin Review

Cabin 11575
I was somewhat disappointed with our cabin as I thought the configuration would be
different. It had a king size bed and a pull-out chesterfield. When they were
set-up it was like trying to play leap frog in the room. We asked for a Quad and paid an extra $900.00 per child to share our room. When I had a chance to peak into the other rooms nearby, they had the same set-up. I don't think paying an extra $ 1,800.00 was worth what we got. Cleaning staff were o.k.
Hallways were very noisy. Lots of children running up and down the halls. Great bathroom, not huge, but very modern. Cabin small. Room Service Slow.
Food was terrible. I have never seen so many made-up filler dishes that were very tasteless. Same food for breakfast everyday. Great selection of sugar free desserts. Soft ice cream available and you can help yourself, but very small cones. Poor quality food in Formal Diningroom. "Chops Grill" best food.
