It was a dream vacation. Oasis of the Seas has all the amenities anyone can dream about. I love Central Park, feel and taste nature in it's best. This is the first cruise ship, I have been with such a beautiful and out of this world nature escape. The Oasis of Dreams show in aqua Theater is out of this world experience. All the crew members are warm and accommodating. I also love your jogging tracks, great location, not in the top deck where we used to bit the Carribbean heat, we were able to jog at least three times during the cruise and the gym also had the best equipments. We also enjoyed the pool and the whirlpool spa. I love the art words everywhere. We just walked around exploring all the art works an displays that are so amazingly beautiful. My only comment is that I hope you have more place to dance. We are ballroom dancers and we ended up leaving the only two places where were we can ballroom (Boleros and Dazzles because it's too crowded. Otherwise, it's a wonderful vacation. Oh! I forgot to mention, we love the Dragon's Flight zip lining in Labadee. I will do it again and again. Thank you so much. Read Less

We chose this cruise after sailing over 15 times on Disney, because of the cost. We are so glad we did. The experience was amazing. We booked a Jr. Suite and getting on and off the ship was great. 20 minutes from car to ship to get on and 25 minutes to get off. great!!! The ship was awesome from the amenities to the staff to the activities to the appearance of the ship. Even though we had a full cruise with over 6,000 people it only felt crowded once at lunch the 2nd day. The food both in the main dining room and the specialty restaurants was exceptional in both quality and portion size. The shows that we attended were of a very high caliber. Although we didn't care for CATS the performers were outstanding. The same goes for the Ice Show and the Aqua show. Finally the activities on board gave you something to do every minute of the day of you choose to. We will be returning in the future. Read Less

I chose this cruise since I have two grandsons, 9 and 14 and knew they would enjoy the DreamWorks characters which they did. The Character Breakfast was very good and plenty of time for photos. The boys enjoyed the kids club and teen club so were always busy. We also enjoyed the Carousel, zip line, flow rider and miniature golf. There was plenty for everyone to do and the Aqua Show at the end of the ship was outstanding. The Broadway Show Cats was excellent also. If you have a mobility issue I would suggest an accessible room. None were available when I had asked so book far enough ahead. We had a balcony room that was nice but really too small for using the electric cart. We managed by holding open the door and he could just make it through, although he always had to back into the room in order to leave again so it was a little difficult but possible. The day at their island (Labadee) was very nice - warm, clear water and we enjoyed having a cabana to use. Our area was not crowded at all. Shopping was a joke as their prices were so high to start and you had to bargain for everything and they did pester you a lot. If I went again I'd stay away from them. Read Less

We were a family of 11 ranging from 7-69 with 5 kids under 15. There was plenty to do that fit each of the grandchildren's needs and interests. The teens were not interested in the teen activities but the younger kids went to the kids camp a couple of times and were entertained. The rest of us enjoyed a quiet time. Breakfast and lunch were in the Windjammer and each of us was well fed. One granddaughter has a severe peanut allergy and we felt she was well looked after by a caring staff. Dinner was very good. Our wait staff was fantastic. We had the same table each night. They remembered what the kids liked and brought out extra shrimp and french fries before dinners arrived. They too catered to our granddaughter with a food allergy and brought her the next nights menu the night before so she could choose what she wanted and it would be prepared with care to ensure no cross-contamination. The ship had plenty for everyone. I enjoyed the Park Cafe for coffee each morning. We were on deck 8 so it was right there. Cats was too late for the kids but I thought they did a pretty good job. Oasis of Dreams and Come Fly with Me were excellent. The kids ice skated, rode the flow rider and one enjoyed the zip line. They wore us out so I cannot comment on the night life. We loved the Mirabella for snorkeling and Labadee and the water park was great. We rented a beach bungalow and I'm glad we did - recommend for large groups . Embarkation was quick but debarkation (we did unassisted walk off) was quicker. I might do this again with kids. Without - I don't think so. Maybe winter. Read Less

I have sailed on several other cruise lines; This was our first Royal Caribbean cruise. The Oasis of the Seas has been the best experience out of them all! Everything from the beautiful Central Park, to the food and customer service down to the water pressure and temperature of the showers, was incredible. One of my biggest complaints about cruising is the taste of the drinking water (the ships convert sea water into drinkable water thru filtration), it has never tasted good to me- until this cruise. The ships water was incredible. I didn't even drink my bottled water. The spa was so relaxing and the massages were great. The customer service on Royal Caribbean is superior. The shows were great. The comedy show was side splitting hilarious and the Broadway production of CATS was great! Our junior suite cabin was very spacious. It even had a walk in closet and our bathroom included a full-size tub. We were traveling with our adult children and 4 other families. There was always something to do and really never was bored. I will most definitely be cruising with Royal Caribbean again! Read Less

Staff was amazing, everyone was approachable, helpful and polite. The food was incredible, as good as described. And more than you could eat! Guests were rude, "entitled" talking thru music performances. (my biggest pet peeve) They'd walk right in front of you without looking. My mother with her rollator, was bumped and ran into people (by accident) who weren't paying attention to where they were going. The photo studios every 5 feet were a bit oppressive and made it hard to navigate walking around the promenade. The constant, "sell, sell, sell" and book your next cruise was annoying as well. The ship was very clean, spills were addressed immediately. The cabin at first felt small but had adequate storage. However something was wrong with the ac the room was never cold, barely cool and I came home with a hacking cough from the poor air quality. The MDR was exceptional and I felt no need to visit any speciality restaurants. The dining room staff went above and beyond to make our dining experience exceptional. We looked forward every night to seeing them and seeing what new creations the chef had made. With all of the entertainment aboard, we spent most of our time in Jazz on 4. Monique and Jose were amazing servers and my glass was never empty (unless I wanted that way). The music was exceptional. The guests were rude talking thru performances. Signs should have been up to tell them to take conversations elsewhere and not be rude to those listening. If you go, don't miss the Remedy quartet. Astrid, (lefty guitarist) made the guitar sing, literally. A performance not to be missed. When we went to see Cats, Jose our server from Jazz on 4 helped my mother to the elevator with her rollator. This was not his section of the drink serving but again, he went above and beyond. The performance was as good as I remember having last seen it about 18 years ago. We were offered a small thing of popcorn for $2.50. Really? After all we paid, you want another $2.50 for popcorn? Much of my experience thru the promenade was like that, sell, sell, sell. It was very annoying. Caribbean in July is hot. St. Maarteen the dock was so far away and hot, more golf cars should have been provided to help guests back to the ship. The heat coming off the dock was oppressive and took my breath away. Be prepared for a long hot walk back to the boat. We booked a private tour guide and it was well worth the walk to find her. Message me if you want to know more about it. San Juan, our time of departure was changed from 3:30 to 1:30. This was extremely disappointing as I really wanted to see as much of San Juan as possible. As hot as St. Maarten was, San Juan was warm but tolerable. As I did in St. Maarteen I did a private tour, again message me if you want to know more. By our last port Labadee, we had enough of the "cattle call" and the heat and stayed on the boat. Also, everything there is RCL and their excursion. Very overpriced. Would have been nice to have local options there. Also would have been nice if there was a movie or something those who stayed on board could have done. But it was nice to have the ship practically to ourselves. Would I go again? At the point, no! This ship is too big, too many people and too much selling, from the drink packages, next cruise and photo shoots. I felt like the promenade was more like a mall for selling. Would have been nice to have a few less people on board and few less photo shoots. The crew was outstanding, hard working and so friendly. They made the cruise most enjoyable. Pools were too small and too crowded with little shady places. Read Less

Awesome and exhilarating from embarking to disembarking. The staff was amazing, very accommodating, available, and lots of help from the crews to make it an easy access for us. The ship is awesome and beautiful, so big and not enough time for the seven days to explore the whole ship. The staff are very accommodating and very friendly. Our stateroom is always neat and clean, the dining is superb, they offer varieties of entree and different meal every night, the activities and entertainment is fabulous and exhilarating, we enjoyed the Frozen in Time, Comedy Live, and the rest of the shows. It's fantastic! Lots of activities indoor and outdoors. Overall, the service of the staff is excellent. Ports and excursions are great, especially in Labadee, Haiti, a beautiful beach and they have the longest Zipline. We enjoyed every moment! Great fun cruise, it's awesome and we definitely recommend this cruise to everyone. Read Less

7/23/2017 I picked this ship because I wanted my sister (1st time cruiser) to have a WOW factor. She did have the wow factor at first sight of the ship. We enjoyed our first walk around but couldn't get past all the constant sales pitch from staff to purchase drink packages and internet. After the second day we had to purchase both due to individual bottle water was expensive and you could not use phone without their connection. The water package came with alcohol drinks (although we do not drink alcohol that much..........this package was unlimited for $400 and high speed wifi was $200 (extremely high). You had to book all entertainment in advance (no luck getting in after standing in line for 45mins).......not to any places to eat for the price you pay.....they want you to eat at specialty restaurants starting minimum $89pp. Mid ship superior w/balcony shower is a joke.

The Oasis of the Seas has a lot of features that attracted us to choosing a cruise on this ship: aqua theater, zip line, rock climbing walls, flow rider, ice skating rink, central park, etc. But the crowds and small venues kept us from really enjoying these features once on board. Waiting in long lines for a short experience (the zip line is less than 10 seconds long) wasn't relaxing at all. I was most disappointed with the inward orientation of the ship. Everything was based on the center point of the boat - the pool, the park, the promenade. There was hardly any place to sit and enjoy the fact that we were sailing the beautiful Caribbean blue sea. There were a few shaded places on the pool deck that faced the sea - but there was no inside place to drink your coffee or read a book and enjoy that incredible view. I had a balcony cabin to take in some of the views - but I wasn't expecting that to be my primary lounging space. I wanted to be somewhat near the action and entertainment with the view as well. The windjammer restaurant has some seats on the side to look at the sea view while dining. However, we were constantly bombarded with recorded messages on the PA to please vacate our tables as soon as we were finished eating to make room for other diners. This main buffet location had limited hours as well - which made the hours it was open much more crowded. A ship with this many passengers needs a larger seating area for the buffet. The service on board was very nice. Our dining staff helped us tremendously with food selections and kept us entertained. I was extremely pleased with VOOM. Using WiFi phone capabilities kept my cell phone active for both incoming and outgoing emergency phone calls. This was a great feature. The food quality was just ordinary. I'm still bummed that their delicious frozen yogurt machines were open limited hours (around 11am to 8pm). My teen kids really wanted late night ice cream. Overall, I have very mixed feelings about my Oasis vacation. I wouldn't ever sail on this ship again, but I may try a smaller Royal Caribbean ship for a future vacation because their service was notable. Read Less

This was my first time cruising so I was kind of anxious about what to expect and how I would like this type of vacation. Turns out it was my favorite trip I have ever taken. My wife and I are both 26 years old without children. There is such a wide variety of activities on this ship that we were always able to find something we enjoyed - a lot of the activities didn't necessarily apply to us but there was enough variety that we were always able to find something. I had done research before hand and was acclimated to the layout of the ship, otherwise I probably would have been overwhelmed. Despite doing this and having a relatively good sense of direction there were still some times where I got turned around; luckily there are maps everywhere to help you figure out which way to go. Despite being the oldest of the Oasis class ships, I was really impressed by every area of the ship. Nothing seemed aged or out of style. I'm looking forward to cursing on the newer ships to see their improvements. The staff were always tremendously friendly and were always helpful to our needs. We always at dinner in the Main Dining Room and were happy with the selection and quality of the food. We made sure to avoid the buffets during peak hours and it never really felt too crowded. My wife and I enjoy drinking so we both purchased the drink package. This was well worth our money as we practically always had a drink in our hands. The drinks were great and service was very quick and easy. The bartenders are skilled and can make anything you want. A lot of bars have their own menus with unique drinks which was nice. We tried all the different shows on the ship and were impressed by the quality - especially the water diving show and the comedy show. Some acts weren't our style, but again those can just be avoided. During the day we spent the vast majority of our time in the Solarium. We had no problem finding chairs (unlike the main pools on the ship) and enjoyed lounging in the pool with our drinks. The pool is small but was rarely over crowded. There were 3 or 4 bartenders that would deliver drinks straight to the pool. The one negative of our experience was the speed of the internet. It was pretty unreliable and required re-entering the passcode any time your device was idle for more than 2 hours. Read Less

Another winner. This is our 4th cruise with RC. All of them on the Oasis of the Seas or it's sister ships. We had a great time on each cruise. This cruise was to honor our daughter Romona Armstead's 50th birthday. My wife and I would sincerely thank the crew and staff for providing us with a memorable experience each time. Boarding and leaving the ship was the smoothest on this trip than all the others. It indicates to us your commitment to constant improvement. The room service was at it usual excellence. We had breakfast in our room each day and the service was prompt and trouble free. The dining in the Silk room wa pleasantly memorable and the food was first class. I did, however, notice the red high back cloth chairs had an abundance of crumbs and other thing trapped between the arm rest and seat cushion. This to me indicates a less than adequate vacuum cleaning of the chairs. I discovered this when I tried to retrieve one of my medication capsules that fell into the crevice of the chair. It was a bummer for me. In addition the ship is showing its age, stained and worn carpeting in our room and the door to the ocean side patio was difficult to open. (room 10162) I also noticed a black ring that continued to form in the toilet after every flush. This made me hesitant to drink from the tap. Over all it was a great cruise and we will definitely use RC for any future cruises. Read Less

This is a very large ship and you do not get the individual service like on the smaller ships. That said the ship is beautiful and their is so much to do. The staff is very friendly and tries to give you the small ship service which seems almost impossible. We made this a family cruise and had 14 people in our group. The kids had much to do but the parents felt it was to hard keeping track of the kids. We were expecting to have Royal's IQ service on this size ship but were disappointed to find out that was not a option. The IQ app allows you to text among the people in your party for a small fee. This is a must for family cruises. Disney and other cruise lines have this type of texting service as well as a few Royal ships. If we can get the fastest internet afloat why can't we get IQ on all the ships. Before you book your next FAMILY cruise make sure it has been updated with this future. Read Less

Activities for all were good. Stability of ship was excellent. The cabins are small but adequate. The shore excursions were well planned. The only negative on the shore excursions were in Puerto Rico. There was a long waiting time to start the excursion. The guide for the Old San Juan and New San Juan was ok but not excellent. The two 18 year olds spent a lot of time in the pool as well as the 12 year old. Outstanding service in the main dining room at Silk and the Windjammer and Solarium food was very good. We also enjoyed the Park Café. The Oasis of Dreams and the Frozen in Time performances were good. However, the CATS show needs to be changed. None of the travelers with me liked it on this cruise and on my previous Oasis cruise. The y found it very boring. The Remedy Band, the Elvis impersonator, and the Salsa bands were excellent. The Oasis is a good ship but has begun to show its wear and tear. I would think it would be time for a refurbishment. Read Less

The shore excursions were OK but St. Martin was small and the stop over in Puerto Rico were too short. We need more time there to really explore their country. Labadee was a needed stop to rest.

Fantastic cruise and ship! Ship left from Port Canarval. Getting on and off the ship was very easy and took about 20 mins. Cabins were very nice. we had a cabin overlooking central park - with balcony. I thought I would feel claustrorphobic...but it was fine. I would still prefer ocean view. My kids had a balcony overlooking boardwalk, they were able to see zip lining and aqua show and water, so best out of all cabins. (recommend getting boardwalk) Labadee is the RCL island. it is very well set up and they have food and chairs, it's really just like a 'day at the beach'. I would be careful with going into the little village, you will get harass from sellers. Falmouth was great. we went to dunn's river falls. We didn't do the shore excursion with the ship, but rather took a taxi ($150 roundtrip for 5 of us, taxi driver waited for us). I would highly recommend this since we were able to get to the Falls before all the shore excursion tours. go there as soon as ship docks and you'll beat the crowds. it gets very busy after noon time. However it was fantastic! water was really cool. also bring water shoes. they sell them there for $10 each...(Jamaican colors!). They have lockers to rent for $8 as well. Cozumel - went snorkeling using a tour that I found online. (not from ship) it was a family run business. The tour was about 4 hours long and we went to 3 different reefs. Cozumel is absolutely beautiful when it comes to snorkeling. the water is so clear. I would definitely recommend snorkeling here. (I've done dolphin swimming as well but prefer snorkeling). Dining - we did my time dining. If you do my time dining, then make sure you make reservations the night before, otherwise you will be waiting in line. I loved room service in the morning. I would always request coffee first thing in the morning as I was getting ready. nice way to start the day. Shows/excursion/spa - reserve before you get on the ship using cruise planner. this will prevent you from having to stand in line. Guest services was always packed, but I was happy I did it online. I did a spa (massage) first day which help kick off the cruise! The massage was cheaper if purchased prior to boarding...it was an average massage, but it definitely help with relieving stress. we also did the sushi making class - that was great! We did that during one of our sea days. After they show you how to make four rolls, you get to each lunch. The kids really enjoyed the flowrider, zipline and rockclimbing walls. It was the highlight of the cruise for them. We ended up with a lesson and it was well worth it. It showed them how to do it. - both boogie board and stand up. Food - we ate in the main dining room for breakfast and dining most days. You can always eat at the windjammer, (buffet style) but it is always packed Overall the food is fantastic. I have no complaints. My sister is coelic and needed a special diet. They accommodated her so well.... Overall I would highly recommend this ship. so much to do, you will never be bored. Read Less

I chose the cruise based on the activities for a 12 and 11 yr old. The zipline was one line about 20 ft long. The two adult pools were extremely small and over-populated all times of the day. Young adults would 'camp out' in their spot all day, drink, foul language etc. Our kids didn't event want to go in the pool as there was just no way to swim or have any fun. All you could do basically was stand in one area and not move. I would highly recommend a water slid or some sort of water park area (similar to the Aqua Duck on the Disney Cruise). There seemed to be alot of times you had to open your wallet because nothing was included....no pop, water, etc. There were many restaurants that you had to pay extra if you wanted to go there. Kind of misleading when you look on the website. We went on an excursion in Jamaica and the bus was 2 hrs late. We didn't even get a bottle of water, money off....nothing. After waiting 2 hrs all they said was if you want a refund, give us back your ticket. We decided to go through with it as most of our day would have been gone to waste otherwise and we're glad we did as we had a great time....but man, a couple of bottles of water or something from the tour operator would have gone a long way....that was pretty disappointing customer service. Our cabin, food, weather, service, etc. was great. Read Less

Even though you are sailing with 6000 people, it never felt like it. Service was friendly and efficient. Lines at elevators were few. I am always amazed by that! There are so many wonderful settings on the ship to just relax and listen to both live and recorded music. The Central Park area is lovely and unexpected on a ship. We love this ship so much we seldom get off at the familiar ports and just stay on and enjoy having the hot tubs and decks to ourselves. And then there is the food. I must admit, I do not go to the paid restaurants. There is so much good stuff available that is included, I never find the time or the desire! We have cruised many RC ships and the Oasis and the Allure are our favorites. Recently did the Anthem and it is third in our rankings. I am sure for the younger set it would rank first. We are senior citizens. I stay Loyal to Royal and never regret it. Read Less

We did the Western Caribbean cruise on the Oasis of the Seas in July 2017. We were excited to see all that such a huge ship had to offer (all of our previous cruises had been on normal-sized Carnival or Costa ships) but were wondering if it wouldn’t feel overcrowded. Our concerns were unfounded – it was a great experience. Embarking and disembarking were very smooth. Lines were long but moved on the way in (we got there at about noon) but disembarking was crazy easy – we had our bags and were through customs and outside in less than 15 minutes. We made our “my dining” and show reservations as soon as they became possible to make via the website (several months before the cruise). I would highly recommend that – there were long lines for my dining and some of the shows for those who hadn’t made prior reservations. We had to wait about ten minutes once for a table at dinner, but that was it. The ship’s “neighborhoods” and several pools really did spread everyone out. Our youngest was 16 so we spent a lot of our time in the Solarium at the front of the ship, which was calm and we never had trouble getting chairs. The shows were absolutely fantastic and of top notch quality – far superior to the Carnival shows we had seen before (admittedly on shorter, five-day cruises). We were able to see all of them – the divers, ice show (both sometimes canceled if the seas are too rough), Cats, a guest “headliner” Mo5aic (unreal!) and Come Fly With Me – a home grown RCCL show that was incredible. Overall, I’d highly recommend a cruise on the Oasis – just make sure you book your dining and shows early. Read Less

Loved Loved Loved the ship amazing and beautiful! This was our first Royal cruise my family and I have been on several with Another Company (AC). Royals ship was amazing a carousel and a car both on the same ship along with Central Park (which by the way has the best sandwich shop). Boarding, Disembarking and even getting on and off the ship a breeze only one line when boarding but it was in an air conditioned building so not so bad. An escalator when you get back on the ship in some ports gained a lot of points with me. Food well in my opinion its all GREAT until that last day or so then it's ship food lol but to be more specific Royals food is comparable in quality and quantity unless it is 3 am then well it;s either pizza or pizza. A bigger offering for night owls would be nice. And $7.95 for room services No Thanks The desserts all taste the same on the buffet but the cupcake decorating experience was fun and I would definitely do that again. The cabins seem to be larger but may have been due to a smaller table which again gained points cause I am not a tiny women so the extra walk around space was much appreciated. We had a balcony which I love and I was so glad the hubby booked overlooking the ocean not sure i would have enjoyed the ones overlooking central Park or board walk as much as watching the waves,other ships pass, and the sunsets. I traveled with teenagers and they had a blast which leads me to ship security yep had a small experience with ship security and overall I am very please with the professionalism they used while dealing with my child. If I had to complain it would be because they took a not so serious issue to extreme. Again I appreciate the safety and at no point in our trip did any of us feel unsafe.. Lastly, the casino wasn't great to me but hubby did pretty good. Points or Rewards system that Royal uses doesn't seem to be as rewarding as other Casinos i have played in. I don't think that the legal gambling age is lower in International water but there sure were a lot of teenagers hanging out in the Casino. Casino bar service was not the best actually it is Very slow. Overall the ship is gorgeous and HUGE. We chose this ship because of the size and the ports.I loved the experience and had very pleasurable & pretty awesome vacation!! Read Less

Just returned from a 7 day cruise on the beautiful Oasis of the Seas! Rested, relaxed, revitalized and refreshed! Pros: Loved Central Park (my cabin faced it), the Boardwalk and the Promenade. The casino was great. I actually won $60 on Wheel of Fortune! Intinerary was wonderful. Loved Labadee, Haiti and Falmouth, Jamaica. Cozumel, Mexico was absolutely beautiful. There should be a statement on the Jamaica excursion to Ocho Rios, recommending that only expert swimmers should sign up for the Tube rides and dives. Be careful! CATS! Was playing in the theater and although it wasn’t the Wintergarden (NYC), it was absolutely fabulous! I saw it twice in one week!!! Comedy Club was fun. Comedian RJ McCollom had us laughing til we cried! Premium restaurants (Chops Grill, Giovanni’s, etc) offer good food, but at a price. The Silk dining room dinners are delicious. There is a cost for premium dishes such as lobster. Service is great. My waiter, 'Richard', was excellent. He always acknowledged me and was always pleasant. He always seemed excited to see us and made us feel that he enjoyed serving us. I appreciated that. Cons: Boarding was extremely disorganized and lengthy. The safety drill was a nightmare. They showed some kind of cartoon singing about washing hands, then a film that was supposed to be a playful dramatization of safety evacuation, which made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Then, at the end of the film, almost 6000 people headed for the elevators! Try and imagine that. The food at the non-premium restaurants was extremely disappointing. It arrived cold and the pancakes in the Wipe-Out Café were off-white in color, not browned at all. I would have preferred the frozen toaster ones to the ones they served. After trying twice to get something good, my granddaughter settled for a bowl of Fruit Loops. Pretty sad. This was my first Royal Caribbean cruise and I was a bit disappointed. In my opinion, Carnival was more organized with the convenient ‘Faster to the Fun’ express boarding option. Also, surprisingly the food on Carnival, in my opinion, was much better. The ship is so large, by the time the food from the main prep station is delivered to other restaurants or room service, it's cold and flavorless. We purchased the Luggage Valet to disembark and it was as smooth as silk! Definitely worth purchasing. Disembarkation was easy and fast. It’s a nice cruise but be prepared to spend, spend, spend!

Okay I was pouring over the pages here and so many people complaining and I wonder WHY. This was abseloutly the best cruise ever, there was nothing I can complain about at all. I even got married on the ship and I loved everything it was awesome. Its what YOU make out of it,yeah maybe they are a bit pushy in Labadee in the little village, so what smile and move on, it's that easy. Falmouth shopping is so nice, we even walked outside into the village there was police, okay we did not stayed long but hey it's really not THAT unsafe. We saw Mayan ruins in Tulumin Mexico and yes it was hot, and time was limited but still I saw the temple, I went swimming, the bus was air-conditioned, the ferry was super speedy and was a carnival ride in itself lol. No complains here would do it again in a heartbeat :) Embarkation and diembarkation was a breeze , we used a shuttle service to get to the car. The cabin was comfortable alot of space for stuff even a good size closed. I dont know why people take magnets I did not needed any at all and the ships walls are not that magnetic anyways. The bedding was super comfy , pillows too. Read Less

Been on Oasis before and loved it. This time no kids with us so it was more of a relaxing type vacation. Only show we went to was the ice show. We did purchase the Deluxe drink package with voom for about $475 and feel like I got my moneys worth. Drank a lot of margaritas, water and coke. The internet was sufficient for general surfing. They did not serve Filet Mignon for dinner which has never happened. Been on 10+ cruises and it has always been offered at least once. You can buy it from Chops for $20.00 with tax but i can do it cheaper at home. We bought a spa package for $250 which ended up being $295 with gratuity. I would not do that again. As crazy as it sounds it was worth $250 but not $300. So FYI make sure you check and see if something you purchase also has taxes and gratuity that need to be added. Overall it was one of the best vacations I have had. Read Less

This was my family of three first time on the Oasis of the Seas. We most definitely enjoyed every moment of this cruise ship! We got the chance to do a lot than any other cruise we've taken, so that was special to us. A lot of good eating! Liked the windjammer, but got the chance to try the Coastal Kitchen, the food was very good. Tried other specialty restaurants-Chops, Solarium Bistro, Giovanni's--Spot on absolutely wonderful! The zip line, basketball court, flow rider-all looked fun. Our son had the opportunity to do these activities, while we watched. He had the time of his life. The comedy shows, Adult shows, etc, were great! kept us laughing- must do Overall can't wait for the next one- it's in the planning process! The night clubs were a lot of fun and dancing the night away. Great stuff! The islands-Jamaica, Haiti and Mexico were so much much! Love it Read Less
