Review SummaryThe ship was beautiful, to say the least. The stateroom was large and had lots of places to store our belongings. I was impressed with the organization of the bathroom. Although it looked small, it had everything and was quite comfortable. I was particularly impressed by the size of this ship, The Oasis of the Seas. We sailed at full capacity, so it had about six thousand guests and over two thousand employees on board--that's a city on the high seas. In spite of the number of people on board, you could always find a quiet spot for relaxation. The ship was divided into neighborhoods, a novel idea. If you wanted to shop, there were lots of shops along the promenade deck where you could browse or stop at one of the many bars for a drink. It felt very much like being on a city street. Central park was true to its name--lots of greenery and restaurants. We spent many hours there enjoying the atmosphere. The boardwalk was also fun, with lots of activities for children as well as adults. The carousel was a surprise. The many specialty restaurants included, Chops Grille for great steaks, Giovannis for Italian food, and a seafood restaurant. Unfortunately, we only tried Chops Grille, and the steak was as good as we had heard. The wines are a little too expensive, so next time, we plan to pre purchase a wine package for our dining pleasure. There were numerous activities from swimming to basketball. We were amazed to dicover a full miniature golf course as well as over six ping-pong tables. This ship has it all. My husband and I are already planning to cruise on this ship again, but this time with our best friends.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: A walk to the top of the hill is a must, followed by a swim--the temperature of the water is jus perfect.
Pros: The ship itself was extraordinary. Even though my husband and I have been on three previous cruises, this ship far exeeded our expectations.
Cons: My time dining was not particularly helpful to us. We had hoped to spend some time and get to know some other guests at dinner, but this did not happen.
