NYC on Water

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

A beautiful ship with central park and royal promenade centrally located with elevators on both end.  Broadway at the rear with a carousel, hot dogs, and ice cream.  The staff is wonderful and extremely helpful.  Only downfall is a lot of extras that cost $$$...Ben and Jerry's ice cream place, popcorn, cotton candy, etc.  And, you can't bring water aboard!!!

The Best Criuse You Can Imagine

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

Everything is first class on this cruise and the destinations are amazing. You will never be bored because there is always a list of things to choose from on the ship. The shows are great, the food is excellent, and the activities (from shopping to pamper parties or even mini golf) are so much fun. I loved every part of this trip.

Too large for me, but a really nice ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2015

This was our 15th cruise and 5th with Royal Caribbean.  For me, the ship seemed very enclosed.  Don't get me wrong, it was nice, but it was a little like being in a shopping mall.  Even though Boardwalk and Central Park are open air venues, they seemed enclosed as well.  It doesn't feel like you're on a ship most of the time.  You can't look out to the water from any of the public areas unless you go up top or to the aft, or hang in your room. 

The ship was very stable.  We didn't feel the movement of the ocean much at all, which is probably what they were shooting for, but it seemed odd.  We all commented on how it's nice to have a little rolling with the waves, especially at night. 

The upper deck is nice, but it seems so far up and away from the water.  There are a lot of gimmicks to keep people occupied, so the ship never really seemed over crowded.  One of my favorite things was the hot dog bar.  The brats were good.

As for the shows, the Abba show was good and the Aqua show was good as well.  We didn't do any of the others.  Everyone, including numerous members of the crew said that Cats was really boring.  I was surprised at how many crew members we bold enough to trash a show on their own ship, but it must be that bad.  Either way, make sure you schedule these things online in advance like they say because we found out that they really do sell out.

Oasis is really nice and very innovative and we had a good time, but that said, we will go back to the Radiance class ships, which are definitely our favorites.  We've been on the Radiance and Serenade previously and will be doing the Jewel in the spring.

Stay out of the bingo room

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 20, 2015

In general, I liked the ship and the quality and variety of amenities.  Food was great and the staff was always there to help out.

Two biggest complaints were that Bingo was $60 and the room was packed.  They played three games and gave away a total of $3000 in prizes approximately.  So it ended up being a "get more money out of you" scam... which is very annoying to me.

I thought the cruise shopper on channel 22 was very mis-leading.  That appears to be just full of kick-backs to the cruiseline.  Which in turn feels like a scam.

7 day honeymoon cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

Everything was wonderful on the cruise.  The room Stewart, Dexter Matthews, was extremely courteous and helpful with showing us what to expect and how to use the TV programming to understand more of the ship's accommodations.  The room was always kept immaculate, the ship itself was always being clean and kept up to high standards.  It was an extremely relaxing and wonderful time... I would highly recommend Oasis of the Sea cruise.

Awesome

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

This cruise was GREAT in every way.  We were traveling with 5 grandkids, ages 5 to 14.  Everyone of them commented on how wonderful the ship was with so many things to do.  The ship was clean, the staff was friendly, the food was great and plentiful.  We had a Central Park View Balcony. It was absolutely beautiful, the trees below and the lights and music in the evening.  There are many places to eat all over the ship.  Although the Oasis is the largest cruise ship, it was easy to get around and you would never know it by the number of passengers.  It never was crowded.  It was the easiest for embarking and disembarking of all the 20 cruises we've been on.

I would definitely cruise the Oasis again.

My cruise experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Oasis of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

This was my first cruise and I had an absolutely great time.  The ship was everything that I had heard it would be.  The dinning room and food was top notch.  My room was great and enjoyed the balcony. The shows I attended were very entertaining and the peace and quiet of the ocean was unbelievable.  The excursions I went on were very nice, priced well and had fun on all of them.Love
