7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 18, 2012
Ship: Oasis of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Pool in adult solarium is way too small for the size of the ship with its 6000 passengers. I realize you don't use pool on ship to swim laps but so cramped that all one can do is stand there to cool off. I enjoyed pool in solarium much more on other RC ships. Not enough attention by pool staff to keep pesky kids out of adult only solarium. I had to go find staff on 3 occassions to report kids breaking this rule. This is irksome to do on my vacation and a total turn off to the this ship. Beds are arranged so awkwardly in cabin that there is barely room to walk to vanity or bathroom without bumping into furniture. On a positive note, the food was fabulous esp in specialty restaurants and shows very entertaining and unique. Very attentive service in dining room.

Felt claustrophobic in cabin due to layout of furniture

Pros: Food, service in dining room, shows

Cons: Layout of cabin, size of adult pool, poor policing of adult pool to ban children

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? No.
