The Oasis of the Seas is a beautiful, very large ship. We enjoyed having the balcony overlooking Central Park rather than just looking out over the ocean. There were no problems dispersing over 6,000 people throughout the ship for meals, shows, etc.
One area of concern we had is the food. Dining room food left a lot to be desired. Meals were small is some cases, sometimes could not find anything "normal" to choose from, and you could not get any beef (prime rib, steak) item cooked any way other than well done or almost well done. Even when we ordered medium rare, it still came out almost well done. Service in dining room also was lacking. The main head waiter needed more help. She was doing most everything by herself; bus boy person seemed to not be much help.
Buffet food choices were terrible. One day, I went through the entire lunch buffet and came back with an empty plate. Had to settle for a salad, which was OK, but ranch dressing was so watered down it didn't have much taste.
Sorrentos pizza was very good. Other than the food issues, cruise was enjoyable and the ship was nice.
