November 2013 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
We just sailed on the Oasis and our experience was mixed. We upgraded to a balcony thinking that we would be able to have fresh air and enjoy the view. This proved to be very wrong. Within hours of boarding, both sides of our cabin had smokers on their balconies. My wife has allergies and smoking gives me a headache. These people smoked every morning and evening thus rendering our balcony worthless. There is no smoking in the cabin and only in the Casino and one other designated area, but it is perfectly allowed on the balconies as long as you get an ashtray from your attendant. Our family would have been better off with a cheap inside cabin instead of smoking neighbors on the expensive balcony.
