Oasis - Eastern Carib - Great Cruise

Sail Date: April 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was a high quality ship with lots to offer. Don't worry about finding stuff to do on the ship - computerized tvs are everywhere & you push a button & it gives you options - from what to do & where to eat. Don't bother with casino - so little bonuses/payouts that everyone was DISGUSTED. Took fun right out of it. Sunblock spf 50 at least (SEVERE burns were very common on our cruise.) Excursions were better booked in port. Watch the time - we left a few travelers on an island...

Pros: The quality of staff, ship in general

Cons: Casino, tips on top of tips, Extra spending everywhere

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Dining Room -We didn't have a choice about prepaid gratuities (it added it in) so we had "My time dining" which it looks like you HAVE to set up ahead of time - but you can change it - so no stress. Plus you can just walk in & usually get in.
WindJammer - Good buffet. Not a 10, but probably an 8. Be careful of the extra charges "fresh squeezed orange juice" versus just orange juice...
Cabin / Stateroom
smallest room/cheapest available and it was still spacious and orderly/clean
Service and Staff
Staff needs to be tipped - the prepaid gratuities don't go to all the people they should - so be aware, any tipping should be done directly to them and cash.
Very easy to find something quality to do
Children's Programs
We didnt use - Many kids - they seemed well entertained and stayed in the kids areas...
Ship Quality
Beautiful, clean, easy to figure out
