The trip was excellent from getting on the ship to disembarking. This company knows how to move a lot of people through dinners, shows, buffets. Staff are professional and courteous beyond belief. They do everything in their power to accommodate your wishes. Asked for extra towels and couple wine glasses so my wife and I could have a glass on the balcony, was done in minutes. Cabin attendant was funny and greeted you with a smile or joke every time you saw him. Rooms where immaculate always. The waiters in the dining room where as good as any 5 star restaurant. We brought our 18 and 16 year old sons. The staff were courteous with them whether we where around or not. The food is wonderful with selection for any palate. You always knew exactly what was going on because you receive an itinerary every night for the next day. The tv channel also kept you informed. Lots of shows for every taste. The layout of the ship had places for children, adults who wanted to party by the pool and areas for adults only that wanted a quiet place to relax. This is definitely not as cheap as an all inclusive resort but worth every penny. The only Con we had was the Flowrider. It is fun when the guest get to try it and the viewing area cheers and laughs when you fall. When the "Pros" show up and make it into an Olympic sport it ruins it for everyone. The worst is when the old guys from the diamond club get to walk on anytime they want ahead of you. My sons where laughing at them because they where so embarrassed that they though anyone was impressed. Read Less

Second time on ship. Enjoy back of ship overlooking boardwalk & diving show (rm 11725). Extra spiffs (soft drink pkg and 1 meal at Johnny Rockets) come with the Boardwalk rooms. Quiet location …. dead end hallway with only three rooms past this room. The Market Place (Lido Deck on most ships) offered a good variety of food however limited sitting area. Disappointed it closed before 9pm. Dining room on 3rd floor (The Grill?) was our FAVORITE place to eat for lunch. a la carte or buffet …. EXCELLENT food. Assigned dining was on the fifth floor. We had six around our table ….. cramped. The table was small and walk spaces …. tight. Although dress code was long pants, other than formal nights, many men wore dress shorts, including myself. Now the bad ….. felt the ship was heading toward being a Carnival Ship. Loads of small kids. Screams and noise reverberated through he Boardwalk and hallways. Found kids wandering noisily through Casino and Adult areas of the ship. Dining room and shows compared our group with prior cruisers wanting more applauds and screams. Insulted when asked to give standing ovation for chefs and waiters, because we didn't want to be outdone by previous cruise. Ship is to be refurbished adding water slides and other young adult entertainment. Enjoyed the MEGA ship first time, Second time around not as much. Expect there won't be a third time. Read Less

Went on the Oasis with my BFF and had a great time! Our large ocean view balcony cabin was perfect for us! The headliner, Tony Tillman, gave a great performance! We dined at Giovanni's, Chops, and 150 Central Park, as well as ate in the MDR for MTD. All restaurants were excellent! My favorite would have to be 150CP for its mouth-watering beef tenderloin for two! Best meat I have ever tasted, and the very tasty small lobster tail was a nice surprise! My favorite hangout spots are Central Park, Boardwalk, Rising Tide bar, and the solarium! My two favorite classes are Oasis and Freedom, so much so, that my DH and I will be boarding Lady O again in just 2 short weeks!! Port Canaveral is also our favorite embarkation port, as we only live 2 hours away, and there are lots of parking options! Thanks RCCL for continued excellence!! P.S. I will hate seeing the DL on Deck 11 replaced by Wonderland and the DL either being eliminated or moved to the windowless Deck 4! It's just business (I guess). Even so, it won't stop us from cruising with RCCL. By SilkySal Read Less

Fitness customer service representatives are unfriendly and rude unless you buy their package. They have steam and sunna rooms. But customer needs to pay package in order to use them. This is very basic service; but it is not available for regular customers on this ship. It seems this fitness centre is too much focused upon extra sales as we observed that they only care for those buying their service packages. We told them we’re unhappy and want to put our comments. The lady said GO AHEAD. Here we are. Entertainment shows are great. We enjoyed diving, skating, Tony Tillman, and other concerts. Boarding organizational work is impressive for over 6,000 passengers. Fine dining services are exceptionally great, professional, and friendly. Quality and quantity of food are very good. House keeping staffs are hardworking and friendly. Their service is excellent. We also observed lots of kids enjoying the facilities onboard. Read Less

We have wanted to cruise on one of the Oasis class ships far some time and thankfully final did. What a great ship. Yes there are 6000 guests on board however with only one exception, we didn't experience any long lines. The exception of course was the windjammer buffet. They hold you up at the entrance so they can locate a seat for you which is a good idea. Other wise there would be tons of people bumping into one another trying to find a seat. Just too many people and totally unnecessary. We instead ate breakfast at the Central Park Cafe'. No lines quiet, enjoyable and the food was good. If you want to go to a buffet and load your plate to the ceiling with food you probably wont eat cause it's free, the Park cafe might not be for you. There is no charge, however there aren't 10,000 items to choose from. Specialty dining was simply awesome. I would highly recommend it. Main dining room was OK but we preferred the specialty restaurants. We found the solarium cafe' to be in between the main dining room and specialty restaurants as far as food quality. You will need to make reservations in advance but it is also free. Loved the shows. By the way, RESERVE YOUR SEATS FOR THE SHOWS prior to sailing. Drink prices have gone way up sense we last cruised on Royal three years ago. The drink package might be for you if you plan on drinking five or more drinks per day. Keep your eyes open prior to sailing for deals on the drink package. Day 5 they offered several drink deals. We took advantage of the 10 drinks for $79 card. After gratuity it was close to $100. You save around $35 bucks depending on what you are drinking. Only thing I don't like about RCCL is the day strip on the floor in the elevators. I don't want to be reminded every time I get in the elevator what day it is and how little time we have left. LOL Read Less

Just returned from Oasis - Eastern route - after taking Western one year ago. This year's experience was even better than last year because of a much better dining experience. Last year, My Time Dining was a disappointment overall. This year we chose early dining and our server Vaibhav and asst Claire at table 564 in Grand DR were outstanding. The American Icon for breakfast and lunch was always impressive. Windjammer was chaotic at times but well managed. We even tried Johnny Rockets for a fun lunch but opted not to try other optional restaurants. Arrival at Port Canaveral was again the most organized port we've ever experienced - kudos to all the helpful staff there. We chose a Boardwalk balcony - 10329 and it proved to be spectacular- offering both views of the ocean along with the Aqua Theater events. Highly recommended especially if you like an aft view. Once again the entertainment was very enjoyable everywhere except we avoided Cats after being disappointed last year. This massive ship offers such a variety of acts and venues. Glad to see that smoking is being very restricted. Crazy ridiculous drink prices are very evident even with highly promoted packages. Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten were good stops that still displayed the horrific hurricane damage from 2017. They're still trying to recover especially in St. Maarten. Disembarkation was organized considering well over 6000 pax. We opted to self-disembark. Overall a great experience despite such a large ship. Anxious to see what the Oasis two month refurb this fall will have to offer. Read Less

Beautiful ship. The food in the dining room was excellent. The ship is clean and it was interesting to view the different neighborhoods. The room was clean and relatively spacious and the balcony was one of the larger ones we’ve had. We enjoyed Central Park and the boardwalk. The crew was friendly and responsive. Service was excellent. There is a great variety of entertainment and many different musical genres to choose from. This was the first ship that I had to make reservations on for all of the major shows. It would be important to do so. Also, even if you use my time dining, you need to make reservations. Without reservations there seems to be a wait especially for the early dining times. The ship goes in for drydock later this year so it will be interesting to see what changes are made. I would strongly recommend travel on an oasis class ship with Royal Caribbean. Read Less

Because I have been on this ship 20 times..We are higher level" Diamond Plus" members of their incentive program..Now the truths.. The ship is fun and the good parts can;t be beat...Here goes: 1. Hundreds became sick on the Oasis, the cruise was shortened...Royal Caribbean refuses to put simple paper toilet seat liners in the public restrooms to save money..This is disgusting as men are forced to sit on toilet seats that have been peed on... 2. Pool deck toilets for men expose men peeing, about 5 at a time to anyone walking by..Women,children, all people. The door opens and there are 5 urinals in full sight, not screened...This is an insult and fully wrong No small kid should be exposed to this.. 3.Royal Caribbean lies to thousands at a time and exposed passengers to potential health risk's by advertising in the daily Compass news letter, ''Frozen Yogurt: is served in the machines poolside..No way..It is a fake FROZEN DESSERT MIX...It was pointed out, changed in print for the remainder of the week, then advertised as yogurt the next week... 4.Food in the Windjammer Buffet has been highly downgraded, is starchy and greasy... 5.Room service, a staple of cruise enjoyment is now charged for and it is an expensive charge. This was very disappointing for passengers.. 6.The production show "Cats" is unwatchable for 1 1/2 hours..It is just people in cat outfits, snarling at one and another. 7. The casino machines are set to make it highly improbable for anyone to win.Much different than Las Vegas 8.The gym has old, dirty, broken machines, some unsafe..There are no attendants, and it is a disgrace...If you are a gym type person, you will be mad..It is a rip off... 9.The $45.00 per week soda machines are always broken, another rip off.. 10. Poolside bands are twice as loud as enjoyable... Read Less

We booked the Oasis based on all the amazing reviews! No lines, Never feels crowded ect. Not sure if we were on the same ship!!! We went in January which also just happen to coincide with a Jewish holiday.(they had their own restaurant and elevator) No big deal except the Solarium bistro was kosher only the entire cruise and FULL of screaming kids. This is located in the Adult Solarium!! The Royal Promenade was so packed and noisy it every single night we stopped going. Never even got pizza, cookies or a sandwich as there was always a line. The Windjammer is less than half of any smaller ship we have been on. We kept thinking we were missing part of it somewhere. We loved Central Park and it seemed to be the most quiet so you could have a conversation and it was very pretty. Loved Vintages and spent lots of time there. We enjoyed the moving bar, but WHY was it full of little kids taking up seats??? Dinning room service was so bad we went 2 times. Royal has cut out the bar waiter, the bread waiter and everything falls on head waiter. It was NOT his fault but there is no way for one person to keep up with all that and no assistance. 45 minuted and no drinks, appetizers that never arrived and coffee that was ordered but we left after waiting 15 minutes and no coffee. Room service for continental breakfast was excellent and prompt! The Adult pool OK. Love the glass cover but it hold in all the sound. There should be 2 pools and one hot tub not the opposite. At time the pool was so full and the water so gross you people were commenting and not getting in. We had a ocean view balcony and the rooms are much smaller than any ship we have been on and much less storage. I will say the show "Come Fly with Me" was outstanding and the Diving show was fun. We are in the specialty restaurants most every night. The BEST service and NOLVIN was the BEST in Chops! I could go on and on but it was just the worst cruise we have ever been on.I heard Royal had for every adult a child cruises free so it was full of kids! We planned for a year and it has turned us off cruising for awhile. Everyone has their own expectations and experiences and these were ours. When we cruise again it will not be on a mega ship and will check to see if Royal has made these cut back across the fleet. PLUS check for any holiday at all! Read Less

We chose Oasis of the Seas because my husband had watched a documentary of it being built. We were not disappointed in this ship at all. The ship is huge but very well planned out and you never feel too bombarded with other guests. The balcony cabin was very comfortable and the bed divine. The staff are very courteous and helpful so you definitely get excellent customer service. We really enjoyed all of the food with the exception of the Windjammer Buffet. We ate at the Chops Grill the first night of our cruise and were very pleased with the food. We loved the adult swimming/hot tub area on the 16th floor. It had plenty of seating and a bar close to the pool and hot-tubs. We could also watch the families with children having fun on the 15th level. We will definitely sail with Royal Caribbean for one next cruise! Read Less
