Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review SummaryOasis is an over-the-top ship. There is much to do and they keep it lively. More important, they have perfected management of the crowds. Only on the first afternoon while waiting for our cabin to be ready did we have any sense of the facilities being stressed.
We chose an inside balcony cabin overlooking the Boardwalk, Aqua Theater and back of ship. We feared that it might be noisy, however, was not. The cabin is well sound proof so noise from the carosuel, nightclub and other was never a problem. Only problem, ship is so large that with an inside cabin, you are nor really aware of being on a cruise; could have been a land based hotel.
Entertainment was excellent. Hairspray was good, Ice show wonderful and Aqua show exciting. This was best entertainment of the dozen cruises we have taken.
Food was only average and probably the only disappointing part of experience. Central Park specialty resturarent (extra cost) was very good but buffet and main dining far from standard of other ships we have been on. This was our first RC cruise so we are waiting on next to see if all are this average.
One highlight was the way the large number of people were handled. Check-in was best we have ever experienced with no wait and disembarking was efficient and without incedent. RC was wise to build the special terminal to accomodate this large ship. Overall good experience and we will probably repeat on tiis ship or sister when launched later this year.
