October 2016 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
The ship is absolutely beautiful! It is also immaculately clean. We had a balcony cabin midship on the 10th deck. Unlike other cruise ships we've been on, our cabin had very little storage areas. There wasn't even an over the bed storage
cabinet. There were only a couple of drawers to hold our clothes, and the bathroom shower was very small. In order to dry off without hitting the glass doors,
you needed to step outside the shower. The balcony was also very small and we
were disappointed that they provided you only with a chair and no lounge chair or at least an ottoman to put you legs up.
The food in Central Park 150 and the service was wonderful! The food in American Icon was also very good and the service was excellent! The food in the Windjammer left a lot to be desired. (Myself and my husband have really loved the food on every other cruise ship that we've been on.) First of all, there wasn't an omelet/egg station, something that we really missed. There was no pizza bar, and there wasn't a pasta station which we also really enjoy. The food that they did offer was okay and the servers were good.
One last thing, the Oasis of the Seas had a most wonderful smell throughout the
whole ship. It was extremely pleasant up until the very last day. The air must have been infused with the aroma, however on the last day, the ship had an unpleasant smell. The smell of an old ship, probably. Our cabin attendant was wonderful, very
pleasant, and will to be of help. The shows on the ship were very good and experiencing "Central Park" and "The Boardwalk" was something to really appreciate. The casino was very nice and the the people that worked there
were helpful and pleasant. So all in all, the ship was good, however, I wouldn't recommend it to someone that hasn't cruised before, however if you want to experience Central Park and the Boardwalk, it would be worth trying the Oasis.
I just feel that because of the age of the ship and the last time that it was refurbished, they could have done a better job of bringing the ship "more up
