Poor service and attitudes from crew

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 17, 2015

This was my first cruise on Royal Caribbean and it was not a good experience. I have cruised Carnival many times before and have been blown away by their service every time. Royal Caribbean's cruise is supposed to be even better, however, that was not the case. The entire crew seemed to have an attitude of "we are inconveniencing them" and were very combative and quick to tell you "no." I don't think it is too much to ask for my steak to be cooked medium well, however, we were told no, it has to be medium or medium rare. This is just one example of the many instances that occurred on the ship. Overall, the ship is gorgeous, but if for the money you pay to be on it, the service should equal the ships elegance.

done it will do again

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

The Oasis Of The Seas is a destination of it self.The size had me a little concern before the cruise but after a day any concern was put to rest.From the  musical full production of CATS to the evenings piano and violin recital in Central Park the entertainment was best we experienced.This was our 25th cruise on over 12 different ships.Tthe food in the main dinning room was good to very good -the  buffet had a good veriety-the specialty dinning was ok with great service,food all over this ship.We booked a balcony over Central Park,Usually we stay in an ocean balcony not sure which one we would do .BOARDWALK was just ok great diving show and rock climbing wall.Always something going on the promenade deck. Enjoy this ship!

An incredible ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

If you're into cruising, you should love this ship. Tastefully decorated and amazingly designed so it's easy to get around and you rarely sense the crowd that's onboard. The neighborhoods really work. Central Park is tranquil and inviting. There's always something to do on the Promenade, and plenty happening on the sports deck. Food was better than I've had on other cruises. So what's not to like? It's hard to find a quiet, private place. It seems there's always music playing somewhere - often annoyingly loud. There's way too much you have to pay for. One of the joys of cruising used to be having everything included. Maybe because we had a balcony on the Boardwalk, I tended to feel out of touch with the water. I've always loved working out with ocean views - the weight area is in a not very attractive interior area. Staff was great. The cabin felt small. We were a party of three, and it seems there should be a little more room than for a couple.

Best Cruise Ever!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

We have cruised with Carnival, Princess, and NCL but this was the best yet!  It's the biggest ship out there and we had always been curious about the experience.  Yes, it was crowded but there's so much to do we didn't mind that small inconvenience.  From the ice show to the Broadway production to the aqua high dive show to the comedy show the entertainment was great.  The carousel on board was fun even for us oldsters and the Boardwalk with the hot dog stand, Johnny Rockets, Starbucks, and Haagen Dazs was spot on.  The spa services excelled and our excursion in Jamaica (booked through Cruises Only) was affordable and of high quality.  I would highly recommend this line and ship - lots to do and you won't get bored even with 3 days at sea.

Great cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 04, 2015

My family and I had a blast, definitely recommend. I still prefer Celebrity and Princess but it was great..I think alcohol was too pricey and they nickel and dime you for everything..The next time I vacation I think I will choose all inclusives. A better bang for your buck...

No Joke best cruise, best cruise ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 04, 2015

Yes!!! The ship, the crew, the experience, the best VACA I've had in a long time. There is so many good points about the Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. You want to bring your kids along and you want a day or two for yourselves sign them up fo the kids adventure piece all included. They will take them on scavenger hunts, play various games and even take them to see a movie all on the ship.Seven days is a must just to see all the ship has to offer, various clubs and bars resurants (some all enclusive) and the nice stroll down Central Park,the Cats brodway production and the Oasis of dreams aqutic show. So much more you just have to go and see for yourself.

Truly an Oasis

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 04, 2015

The cruise staff and entertainment were top notch. They left no stone unturned and all worked to make sure everything and everyone was well taken care of. There was something for everyone from ice skating to ping pong, flow rider to dodge ball. The shows were plentiful and wonderfully executed. Bingo was hilarious and the hair salon personnel did not disappoint. Kudos to Tiago at the salon! He not only styled my hair beautifully but was very caring and informative when I needed it. Super kudos to my agent Chris Festerman. After all the changes, additional room, late planning on my part, and the one million questions that I asked, he still made sure that I wasn't living in the belly of the beast feeling the waves on the bottom of the ship. I had a great view and a warm greeting from him when I arrived in my stateroom. Chris you are the best!!!!! I will tell all my friends and family about your great service and Patience.😇, and the time and care perfecting your service for others. I felt like I was talking to a friend.

Nice Boat. Older crowd.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

This is the nicest ship that I've ever been on.  The room was great and the balcony is a must!  The crowd was older than I would have liked and the night life is extremely weak.  The casino seems to be the only place with people after 1130pm.  Overall, the stops were nice and the ship is beautiful.  The food was much better than any other ship I've been on as well.  The formal dining room is great and the specialty restaurants are overpriced and not worth it.  Next time I would do the Eastern Carribean trip as the beaches and stops are nicer.  Also,  watch your tab in Labadee Haiti.  RC allows waiters to make bogus charges to your room without pairing room numbers with names or sailcards.  When you get a credit from guest services, the computer automaticly posts it to your account again hoping that you don't notice.  Why RC allows room charges to be made to rooms with only a room # and no other proof is beyond me...
