September 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Oasis of the Seas
We have sailed more than 25 times with other cruise lines and were anxious to try out the Oasis of the Seas. Royal Caribbean caters to the European and South American markets more than to North Americans. There was loud popular music playing all over the ship, which was not something we enjoyed. The food quality was absolutely horrible. We had My Time Dining and the crowd control even with reservations was really bad. The food in the American Icon dining room was better, but still not made to a high standard. The crew was fairly friendly, but there were long lines for shows, even with reservations, not enough movies, and too many extra fee activities. The mattress in our cabin was very old and sagged in the middle and the carpet needed replacing. Thank goodness we had a balcony cabin to get a respite from all the loud noise and to see the ocean, but our cruise dollar would have been better spent somewhere else. There were so many issues that we will never sail with Royal Caribbean again. Basically we couldn't wait to get home and we have never felt like that before.
