The Oasis of the Seas is a destination unto itself, and was the best part of our cruise.  The ports (Labadee, Jamaica, Cozumel) were forgettable.  The food was really nice with wonderful service, the activities were fun and the entertainment was spectacular.

Big Ship, great experience!

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Hi guys, first off, just wanted to say congratulations on having such a great ship!

Providing pros and cons below.

 

Pros:

- Large ship, allows for plenty of space to not feel crowded.

- many pool areas and hot tubs that provided us enough areas to enjoy ourselves.

- friendly staff

- convenient food options.

- reasonably priced accommodations.

 

Cons:

- Communication enhancements needed.  Take a note from what Disney does.  They have an app once you are on the ship's wifi that is updated with daily info, events, and also allows for communication between people.  This is really the only big complaint I have. 

Without it, we are left with carrying around paperwork for event start times, or guessing at where our friends are on the ship.

- Beverage plans can be confusing.  Access to the beverage dispensing machines should be clearly noted somehow (again, see the communications con above, can be included on a map of the ship, in the application).

- Kids Program a bit restrictive/not flexible.  You can’t just drop off kids at the club at anytime and leave.  There are established times for kids to attend.  Creates a bit of confusion while onboard as we had to be aware of the times to make sure we dropped off accordingly.  Should allow for more flexibility.

- Tracking/communication during kids club attendance is minimal.  They have no way to contact parents since there is no mobile phone/app that allows for communication (see note above related to comms).

 

Otherwise, had a great time, thanks!

What a great trip to take and what a BIG ship to do it on

Verified Review

First off the ship is beautiful and very  very big.  There was so much to do on this ship until wee hours of the morning if you want.. Great shows and wonderful food and all the crew are so friendly.. and Helpful.. Our cabin was very comfy and our cabin steward was so nice.. The excursions we took were interesting.. we went to the green grotto.. I would chose something else .. It was a long trip to get  there and it was just so so. We did like the ruins at Cozumel .  It was a long trip to get there but it was worth it.. My big complaint of the ship time was that even though they announce NOT to save chairs at the pools.. well there were no places to sit and people did not come around the chairs. so they were just saving them for when they wanted them.. this is not good.. but every thing else was wonderful.. they even brought us a beautiful cake with champagne for our anniversary. Service was tops.

OVERWHELMING

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Best part of cruise was my balcony, it was a double, with no neighbors on one side, very roomy.

Improvements needed:  Free perks- 1- specialty dining (poor quality steak) other diners that ordered the same steak got better quality (I can tell the difference between a real filet mignon (petite size) and a full size that was thin like 1/4 inch. Two sides to share (One dollop of mashed potato and 6 spears of asparagus).  Shrimp cocktail was large shrimps but didn't taste fresh.  It's only worth the $15.40 tip they charged us. 

2- Spa treatment,  30 minutes, not even worth the $22.00 they charged us. 

3- Johnny Rockets, not fresh hamburger, frozen-preshaped.  I've eaten at Johnny's many times, I know the difference. 

4- Beverage package,  could only get soda, since we don't drink soda, we asked if we can get water, they said "NO" only soda.  I took one soda and get it to a friend.  

Last of all, we didn't fair well with so many people, (6500) so we won't be traveling on big ships again, we are sticking to smaller ships.  Embarkation and debarkation with horrible.

The dining experience and food and Entertainment very good. The cruise seemed overwhelmed overworked and not very happy. Lots items are shipped or broken in in operative. The fruit on the ship were merely and not very good but possibly because of the time of year.. Coke and ice cream dispensers for most of the time out of items or not working. The coke at the bars was more syrup and soda and not worth drinking. Small items as popcorn it shows robes 4 the rooms and decent bath towels we're hard to find the beds have sunken places in them and they put foam pads on top to try to compensate. I took a cruise on the Allure of the Seas, which is the sister ship and didn't have any problems whatsoever period big disappointment

Enjoyed the pools and entertainment.   The cruise itinerary was fine, but

probably would not recommend this ship because we were not happy with the size.

beautiful ship some things need improvement

We never sailed on Royal and never on a big ship.  We were in amazement at the start.  If you have never been on a big ship it has its UPS and downs from the get go.  Be ready to walk and stand for things and get pushed around by people who fail to remember vacation doesn't mean vacation from manners.  Windjammer is a complete mess!! NO organization at all! There is NO rhyme to the madness at all.  They close things down WAY to early for such a huge ship that has 6000 people looking for something to do.  The coke machines always broke down on our cruise.  I think they need more than what they have to really allow the ability to move around the ship instead of going to one place thats always a pain..windjammer then deck 5 where pictures ect are being done.  If you do anytime and do NOT pick a time there is no telling where you will sit! Pick a time and u may get the same seats possibly.  Im not going to say we had a bad time at all its just not the ship for us going fwd.  Its a wonderful ship just be patient or be prepared to tell people where to go LOL.

I really enjoyed everything about the cruise. During a 7 day cruise I had taken several years ago, by the 5th day I was ready to get off the ship, but when the last day had come while on this cruise, I wanted to stay at least 3 more days.  It was wonderful !!!

The Manager and staff of The Windjammer were awesome!!!

Best Cruise Vacation in Years!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A cruise on Royal Caribbean's "Oasis of the Seas" is worth every penny spent.  The ship is magnificent, the food is superb, and the entertainment is incredible!  The ports of call were beautiful, but there was more than enough to do on the ship to never leave it.  Walking in the ship's Central Park made one forget that he/she was at sea.  Listening to music and relaxing before dinner was enchanting.  Walking down the Boardwalk was reflective of wiling away lazy afternoons and nights at the beach.  Seeing the full-length Broadway musical "Cats," being awed by the high dives and synchronized swimming in the Aqua-Theatre, rocking with the headliner entertainer Joel Mason, experiencing the unbelievable talent in the "Come Fly with Me" production, and being reminded of the creative writings of Hans Christian Andersen in the spectacular ice show "Frozen in Time" were more than worth the price of the cruise.  The quality of the food and the service by the wait staff in the Silk Dining Room was comparable to four-star or five-star restaurants.  The food was delicious with a remarkable array from which to choose each night.  With several thousand guests onboard, we were concerned about long lines and congested areas, but we were pleasantly surprised at the ease of moving around the ship and gaining access to all the activities we wanted to do.  The food service areas are located throughout the ship and allow an atmosphere of space and relaxed dining.  Pools and hot tubs are also easily accessible and are designed to seem less crowded than those on other ships.  Walking of the decks at night and being able to see the stars and enjoy the quiet beauty of its vastness made a lasting impression on us.  Crew members truly seemed to want guests to enjoy their vacation to the utmost.  We would recommend this ship to anyone wanting a memorable cruise, but we especially recommend it to families because there are so many experiences offered to people of all ages.
