This was our 5th cruise with Royal Caribbean and feel they are the best cruise line in comparison to others. However, nothing really special about the Oasis of the Seas, just its size. ALSO, on Day 2 (after leaving Bahamas) of our cruise, a crew member JUMPED OVERBOARD taking his life making our ship having to turn around to SEARCH FOR THE BODY according to US Coast Guard regulations. They captured the event on one of the cruise ship cameras so as to locate the area it happened. We could not make our St. Thomas stop because it cost us a day at sea, however, Royal Caribbean did give us a NICE credit towards a future cruise which we will use on the Allure of the Seas when it is completed. Our daughter loved Adventure Ocean camp. They kept her so busy and she didn't want to leave. Also, it would have been nice to know that we should have booked our shows before leaving for the cruise because they were all booked for the week upon boarding. If this ship can hold 6,000 people, they need to accommodate their entertainment for this reason.

Pros: So much to do and our daughter loved the Adventure Ocean camp!

Cons: Never got to see one show because they were booked out the first day of boarding. We were never notified about booking them early. Also, never got an invite to the Capt's Cocktail party even though we are Gold Members. Common areas of ship were not big enough to accomodate 6,000 people

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? Yes!

Like I said earlier, they need to accommodate all shows to handle 6,000 people. It would have been nice to be notified to sign up for shows prior to boarding.
Service and Staff
Staff was good.
Food and Dining
Food is always good on all Royal Caribbean cruises. Dining staff was great as usual.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was good for a balcony. Nothing special.
Ship Quality
Children's Programs
Our daughter absolutely LOVED Adventure Ocean camp.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We always take a taxi to Orient beach or Le Gallion beach. Both great places, but Orient beach has more to offer and my husband and son rented jet skis and loved it.
Nassau, Bahamas
We always go to the Atlantis waterpark. Fantastic place.
