RCCL has definately UPPED it game with the Oasis. Nothing beats sailing on a new ship when it comes to the freshness both in terms of cleanliness and the interaction with the staff. We already believed that RC staff are the most professional and friendly, but they really outdid themselves on the Oasis.

One would think that with nearly 6000 passengers and over 2000 staff on our sailing that it would feel crowded, but we often found quiet time in the lounges of the Promenade and strolled through Central Park and Boardwalk nearly by ourselves. Of course, these were the off-peak times for these areas, but that is our schedule.

The entertainment on this ship is the best. I could imagine that even New York City would have trouble trying to compete with it. We actually went to way more shows than we normally do on a cruise and the pre-booking for reservations added to the smoothness of the schedule for us.

The number of pools and hottubs on this ship gives everyone the ability to enjoy their water time. The adults-only solarium is a masterpiece you have to see to believe while the kids are at the waterpark type pool really having a great time.

Pros: The entertainment, the variety of venues and the ability to find a quiet spot on the Promenade or Central Park

Cons: The way the public restroom doors SLAM

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Quite easy to find your way around on the Oasis. The touch screen boards are a great plus if you find yourself in unfamiliar territory.
Food and Dining
The main dining room food and service is top-notch and the Windjammer is above the average for cruise ship buffet service. The only specialty restaurant that we used was Johnny Rockets, but others on board raved about the Park Cafe and the Seafood restaurants.
Cabin / Stateroom
Brand new makes for great condition, beds are extremely comfortable and the bathroom amenities were an unexpected pleasure.
Service and Staff
They all wore smiles and it was apparent that they actually like their jobs. The bartenders in Schooners and Boleros just can't be beat. They are efficient and entertaining at the same time. On day two we were greated by name and asked if we would like to have our usual drinks.....out of 6000 passengers....WOW, Great job guys.
Like I said above -- I don't think it can be beat. Don't miss the ice show or Come Fly with Me. Our headliners were the Osmonds Brothers. The show was good, but what really impressed us was that we walked around the ship and were happy to visit and take photos. They are very classy guys.
Children's Programs
We don't travel with children, but the programs must be good as we were not aware of problems with any kids and that is the way we like it.
