Wonderful ship & some awesome staff members

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

 I was amazed at how quick it was to get over 6,000 people on board. They had excellent systems in place. It truly helps when you register online. Met a Wonderful couple from Oklahoma and we became friends from the start. Our dining servers Sagar & Pan Li were the Best. They knew what we liked and had it ready for us. Very helpful and personable. We actually looked forward to dinner in the main dining room to be able to visit with them and even did table tricks & puzzles. Our room attendant Arnal did a wonderful job as well. We had some good conversations with him. The Oasis is a very large and wonderful ship. Well kept, clean and sparkling. There is plenty to do. You actually need more than 7 days to be able to truly get to everything without going home tired! We had a fabulous time and look forward to booking another trip with our Grandsons. LoveHappy

Our favorite ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

The Oasis of the Seas is a wonderful ship.  We have been on 16 cruises and this, thus far, is our favorite ship.

I was NOT NOT a fan of the stops though.  I told my husband when we got off the ship that my favorite port had been Ft. Lauderdale.

All the shows on the ship are outstanding!  CATS was not our favorite, but from what everyone else said, it was was well done.  We just didn't get the whole idea of CATS.  But that was just us.

The staff was absolutely perfect...we didn't have one complaint about them.  

I think one of the only things I didn't like was at around 3:30 p.m. each day, ALL the food places close down....so you best not want a snack around that time

Eastern Caribbean

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

This was our first cruise and the experience on the ship was great.  The food on the ship was excellent.  I can not say that I had a bad meal at breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Two of the three shows that we saw were great, Come Fly and Frozen.  The Oasis water show was a little strange.  It does not seen to be for younger children.  It was very easy to get around the ship.  The hot tubs and pools were nice.  There was a lot of activities to occupy our time.  I would definitely recommend Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

been on 33 cruises 1st and last time on oasis we are pretty easy to please breakfast at buffet and main dining room cold waited so long I n dining room ate it any how 1st night wanted to go to comedy show told it was sold out for the entire cruise were told have to book them before you cruise  I run a business 5 days a week 12hrs a day don't have time to book before cruise that's the reason we cruise to relax and be entertained . if you have 8.30 dinner reservations there are no shows to go to everything is geared for 1st seating purser desk told me there were plenty of other things to do on the ship if I want to gamble we live 1mile from a casino if I want to walk around we will go to the mall in our opinion ship, carries to many passengers to accommodate everyone well for us its back to the mid size ships not as many things to do but at least your able to do them without reservations months ahead of time I have never written a review before but felt the need this time beware future oasis cruisers bigger is not always better

huge

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

I wished to experience the huge Oasis of the Seas.  Our luggage arrived with us very directly.  We went

to our room.  I t was lovely.  Our travel person sent us a bottle of wine! We had lunch.  It was in the evening when we discovered that almost everything we did had to have a reservation.  We were on the anytime dining. But one must still make a reservation...we settled this with an 8:30 time .

This was a bit late, but had to feed us all!  Now we are ok.  Returned to room to read .  Learned about booking show and such by computer TV.  

We explored for hours.  So much to see.  After days, we agreed that this would be great for our entire family.  There seemed  to be quite a number of our folks.   All in all this was exciting.  This would be great for several couples to have fun.

 

The quality of performances was excellent.   We viewed diving of olympic quality.  The production of

CATS, took the cake!  I saw this several times.  Would have paid dearly for this set and cast.

Having a balcony, was worth the extra price.  

 

 For us, this was too dazzling.  I also missed the more personal attention of the wait staff .   To bus our tables  only,   did not seem correct, but only because we have been use to this manner on other trips.

We could find  quiet places.  But all and all, we would not choose this huge ship.  

I am still glad we tried.Big Smile

Family Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

Plenty of activities and shows on the ship for the family to do. The shows were top notch entertainment! Staterooms were very nice. We were in 10721 and it had a wonderful view out the back of the ship, we could see the diving show and watch people go by on the boardwalk. It was nice that the shower had doors not a curtain! Bed was surprisingly comfortable - our Room Steward Clover made sure we had everything we needed and always greeted us with an amazing smile!! The food was average. Breakfast and lunch were hit or miss and inconsistent (I eat scrambled eggs almost daily and they seemed to taste different every day). Dinner was always excellent and the menu very creative yet also offered classic "safe" food options. Late night food was limited and the room service menu was almost laughable on the lack of options. Last but not least you would never know you are on a ship with 6,000+ other people - except of course when you try to use the elevator after dinner or a show :)

Chaos getting off ship ruins cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

"Customs" causes delays getting off ship

backing things up by  up to 60 minutes.

at 10:30 RCC decided to get everyone off

and jamming everyone in cruise terminal.

this caused confusion, chaos in lines with shoving and people cutting around others to move to front. Almost had fights. Took an hour to get through cruise terminal. I do no want to cruise Oasis class again unless RCC can guarantee this never happens again.

terrible last impression after otherwise good cruise.

Oasis of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

Royal Caribbean did an outstanding job making our cruise experience exceptional. We were concerned about everything being crowded with 5,000 passengers aboard, but the variety of eating and entertainment options was awesome.  The crew made us feel a part of the big, happy family.  The quality of the dining and entertainment venues was first rate.

Cruise great, the lead up to it with CruiseOnly, not so much

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date:

It is unfortunate to layer a negative remark on top of an otherwise positive experience with the cruise itself but as a result of going through site rather than Royal Caribbean directly, the experience was more frustrating than necessary. Online, I had declined the travel insurance twice before speaking with the agent on the phone who made me again refuse it twice more. After four times refusing the insurance, I received there more emails and three more phone calls urging me to reconsider and pay for the insurance. That is a total of nearly 10 times refusing something that I clearly did not want. I realize the profit margin is the greatest with the insurance but I cannot stand being harassed over and over and over and over again about something I did not want. The insurance was so paramount for the CruiseOnly group that I am not sure they cared if we really took a cruise or not. I will not use the service again but I will take another cruise with Royal Caribbean. I still expect at least two more calls and or emails urging me still to get insurance even though the trip has already concluded or maybe they will find something else to sell me.
