7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Sail Date: August 25, 2012 Ship: Oasis of the Seas Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 4 years ago
Shocked and amazed at the size of the ship as well as all the options that were available onboard. This was our first cruise and we were so overwhelmed with everything to do and all the functions that were scheduled we really did not know where to start. We smiled, non-stop for a week.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
The variety of the food was top notch for all dining options. I guess we got to the Windjammer Cafe too late (around 7:30am) because most of the baked goods were a little dried out from the heat lamps. We choose other options for breakfast and lunch. Dinner was in the formal dining room every night and the variety was marvelous! With us being from Texas\, it was a little light on seasoning and grilling but overall\, we enjoyed the food very much

If you were bored on this ship\, it was your own fault!! There was so much going on\, we could not possibly see everything that was available. We laughed\, A LOT and had a great time watching the passengers participate in the various competitions on board - i.e. twist competiton and belly flop!

The ship was beautiful! We truly felt like we were in Central Park or on a Boardwalk!! At one point when we were walking through the Promenade\, I forgot I was on a ship and felt like we were in a shopping mall.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
Considering the number of passengers this ship was able to carry\, we felt our room was just perfect for us. There was plenty of room to sit on the couch and watch TV or lay on the bed and take a nap. The balcony was great and the size of the room was comparable to some hotels we have stayed in. We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation.
Pros: We loved everything about the ship! Even though the ship was at capacity\, we were still able to find quiet places to relax.
Cons: I really can't think of anything we did not like - it was a fabulous experience
