Review summary

Beautiful ship and great crew. This was my first time aboard an Oasis Class ship and it might be the last. The main reason is there is just too many passengers on these ships. The design does an decent job of spreading people out, but at the end of the day it felt more like Disney World than a cruise liner. I would go back but only if my kids were with me.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Amazing. We had expedited boarding and were on the ship 5 minutes after we walked into the terminal.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was mediocre. Drinks were great except on Coco Cay. Watered down vodka.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We did a lot of the trivia and name that tube games in the On Air lounge. How fun it was really depended on the host. A couple were great, but others were just interested in getting it over with and it was obvious.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The Jazz band was fantastic. The 90’s themed night was also great fun. All of the entertainment we saw was excellent.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Service was good, but you could tell that having this many passengers on a ship was a bit overwhelming for just about everyone including the crew.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Spotless. Beautiful. The most amazing ship I have ever been on. A very small issue is that we stayed in deck 12 and when it was windy the whole cabin shook a bit.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was amazing. Our cabin steward Jorge was top notch and a very friendly guy.

Ship tip

Use the app! It makes getting around and knowing what is going on when much easier than the traditional way.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
It is a close port to us but not as nice as Miami.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Great private island for RCL. Drink line took too long at the Arrivals bar and vodka was half water.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very organized and enjoyed a great breakfast while we waited to leave.
