A Really Unique Experience

Sail Date: May 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The ship is an awesome experience but once is enough. I have been on several cruises on various lines. The public areas are not large enough to accommodate the number of guests. There is almost no access to being able to walk around an outer deck. The walking track is the only deck that goes around the ship and it has limited access and is not a good place to stroll and enjoy. We really missed being able to step outside and easily enjoy the view.

Pros: Variety of entertainment and shows. It was top quality. The ship itself is experience.

Cons: The public areas seemed too small to accommodate guests during peak times.

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The staterooms are extremely small. The public areas are nicely decorated. Central Park and the Boardwalk are really nice. Everything is new and clean.
Food and Dining
Service in the main dining room was good. Menu selections seemed very bland. Most dessert selections are some variety of cream pie/pudding/cheesecake. Other selections would be nice. The Windjammer seating is absolutely not adequate for the number ob guests. The salad bar in the Solarium is very good. The best meal we had was the Seafood Shack (at $8.95 each).
Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms are very small. The only electrical outlet is beneath the vanity and requires an individual to get down on hands and knees to use the outlet.
Service and Staff
Staff members as a whole were nice. Our room steward did not remember to tidy the room and turn down the bed one evening. I had an encounter with someone at the Shore Excursion desk who was certainly less than helpful when I was trying to describe an accident that occurred to an elderly lady in St. Thomas.
Entertainment was wonderful. We really enjoyed all of the shows. Preticketing really facilitates orderly entry and ensures seats at desired times.
