Oasis of the Seas Overview

By Staff - Updated Jun. 28, 2019

Aimed at active couples, families, and solo travelers, Oasis of the Seas offers a true mega-ship cruise adventure with more action-packed activities than you can experience in a single week at sea. On one of the world's largest cruise ships, travelers can enjoy endless fun in the pool and sports zone, which has a zip line, two climbing walls, and dual surf simulators. While adults spend a quiet moment in the Vitality spa or Solarium, younger travelers can stay busy in the Royal Babies & Tots Nursery and Ocean Adventure club on Kids' Avenue. And from beloved Broadway musicals to themed party nights, there's always something happening in the theater and along the Boardwalk or Royal Promenade.

Even though Oasis launched back in 2009, passengers can still expect the cutting-edge technology and amenities Royal Caribbean is known for. Royal completely overhauled the dining options and amenities on Oasis during a 2014 dry-dock makeover, and additional improvements are scheduled for the end of 2019. The Royal Amplified updates will expand the water sports and games areas and add new dining venues, such as El Loco Fresh and Jamie's Italian by Jamie Oliver. Royal Caribbean will also be introducing updated lounges and clubs, including adult arcades and karaoke bars for Instagram-worthy nights.

Oasis of the Seas is perfect for active travelers of all types: thrill seekers, teens, solo travelers, millennials, and couples, along with multigenerational families with varied interests.

Oasis of the Seas Onboard Activities

From the teen disco to the nursery, many of the line's key amenities are designed for families traveling with children or grandchildren. Nightly ice performances, acrobatic shows, and Broadway musicals like Cats appeal to passengers of all ages. While children stay busy in the Ocean Adventure club or video arcade, parents have a chance to relax in the adults-only Solarium, unwind in the Vintages wine bar, or learn a new skill like the tango. But most of all, the onboard activities cater towards active cruisers; rock walls, surf simulators, water slides, and even a zip line make Oasis the Seas the perfect ship for adrenaline junkies.

Simply wonderful! by mgmsmom

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This is our second time on this cruise, since we loved it so much the first time. It's a great way to travel with a teen, as they can keep busy, meet new friends and have a great time, while seeing the highlights of the ports we visit. We are always sad to leave the ship. RCC makes it very easy to have a vacation that can be whatever you want it to be. Thank you, RCC!

Wonderful Western Mediterranean Cruise by azi48

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great itinerary. Average food. Serious concerns about lack of truth with vegetarian food. This needs to be fixed. Good seating and reservation system. Phenomenal entertainment. Average room attendant

The BEST place to relax on this ship is the Solarium! Adults only, so NO kids..A GREAT way to spend a port day when most are off the ship!
