  3. Oasis of the Seas
I chose this cruise first for the destinations and then because of all the amenities that the Oasis boasted about. Unfortunately the Oasis left much to be desired, the ship itself was mostly beautiful. Central Park and the Boardwalk were intriguing but I could have done without these if the ships crew were more engaging. Previously I have only sailed on Carnival ships so in my opinion the bar is high. On Carnival ships I LOVE the jamming sail away party, the drink of the day, the towel animals, the main dining rooms offer a special dish that represents the port you visited for that day. The shows change daily and are lively and entertaining. There are performances happening all around the ship but on the Oasis I literally felt like I was in a retirement home. I went to bed early every night because the atmosphere was quiet and droll. And then they nickle and dimed you for EVERYTHING even though the cruise itself was expensive. I definitely would not book with Royal Caribbean again because dining, activities, entertainment and staff did not live up to my previous cruising experiences. The cabin was nice enough which was a great thing since I spent so many bored hours there. The one highlight of the boat was the non-smoking side of the casino, I think all cruise ships should offer this

Highly Disappointing

Cabin Review

Boardwalk View Balcony
Cabin 1I 14 299
I was given the handicap room so I had extra room and space. It was nice but the sliding balcony door kept getting stuck but that's the only issue that I had with the cabin
