Oasis Jan 2012

Rcommended, with qualifications. Royal Caribbean continues to tout "no smoking" on it's flagship class, however the the smoking issue within the ship continues to be ignored. Every night when the majority of the people are inside of the ship the smoke seemed to be uncontained coming from the casino once again. One side of the casino is non-smoking but it doesn't matter. Coming out of the dining room, one is instantly confronted with the smoke. The same issue continues on the Promenade coming from the bars. Recently, Royal Carribbean stated slightly over 50% of their revenue now comes from interational clients. Because of this, don't look for RC to attempt to correct the smoking issue any time soon as the Oasis class of ships does draw a very large international client base and smoking is acceptable much more so outside of U.S. borders. One woould think with state of the art technology available and a new ship, the smoking issue would not have to be talked about, but RC has chosen to ignore the issue. It simply goes back to alcohol, gambling and smoking will not be separated as this process is perceived as huring the revenue margin.

Pros: variety for everything, food venues

Cons: smoking, smoking, smokin

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
The Oasis class excels in this area with the choice of venues. Take advantage of everything available. The main evening dining quality of food seemed to be only slightly above average from prior years/ships.
Ship Quality
Cleanliness was impeccable.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Everyone on the ship was outstanding in every capacity.
