HUGE ship, but onboarding was super easy and painless. Staff was all very friendly despite personally witnessing them dealing with REALLY difficult people. Drink prices aren't outrageous and overall, the complimentary food was good to great. Ate at Chops Grille, 150 Central Park and the Italian restaurants with 100% satisfaction. Yes, they cost more, but well worth it and cheaper than eating out at home. Waitstaff in these places work really hard for you and are amazingly friendly. You really can't go wrong on this ship. One recommendation would be to try to book off season and get the cheaper price. Also, the interior balconies face each other so we opted for an external facing. I would imagine the noise in the center area gets somewhat loud so beware of that.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Windjammer food was very decent for buffet and I could always find something to eat. Opus was average but we only dined here once due to all the other choices. The specialty restaurants were amazing!

Rated a little lower here because they're a bit shorter than one would expect! Quality still great though.

Ship Quality

BIG BIG BIG! You'll get tired of the hike you'll have to make from your room to the deck and back! Would recommend a higher deck if you plan on spending a lot of time at the pools. Lower deck if you want to be closer to the promenade and restaurants.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Outward facing balcony room on deck 12. ZERO complaints.

Pros: Massive size of boat, crowd factor not an issue despite running at full capacity, lot of choices for things to do

Cons: Vitality Spa always trying to sell you something when you go for a service.

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? Yes!
