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
