Our first time on the OofS, past experience has been on the Freedom ships. Over all cruising experiences, I think I am favoring the Freedom ships, that is not to say the OoS was not a WOW! We had no idea what to expect. New restaurants, a fantastic new pool areas and nightclubs were so RCCL. So we enjoyed Royal Caribbean's style, service, and innovations, and the new OofS did not disappoint us. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet" anymore, it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. The Seattle's Best coffee is top of the line. Our stateroom was a little cozy for the price. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful as always. The biggest disappoitment was the closed in feeling while working out in the gym/fitness area. The open front view is more rewarding for me as is a close by changing area with wet sauna. Fitness area has great equipment, but was not a pleasant experience for me.
