The ship was very large and seemed very crowded. There were many eating establishments on board which were not free, unlike most of the other cruise ships we have sailed aboard. It seemed that because it was such a large expensive ship, Royal Caribbean line was using many different venues to increase its revenue. I did not believe it was a good buy.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was always excellent, welled prepared and the presentation was very good.


5 out of 5
The entertainment was outstanding.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Our 9 year old grandson had a wonderful time with the other kids in the youth area. We went during the school term so there wer not that many kids aboard.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The staff was well trained and efficient.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was much too large with too many passengers aboard. It seems that the cruise lines are trying to outdo each other with these mega ships and are sacrificing traveler comfort and convenience. My next cruise will be on a traditional sized ship!

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our stateroom was adequate but tiny.

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: The size of the ship. It was like having a vacation in the middle of the Minnesota State Fair, one of the largest in the nation.

Recommends Oasis of the Seas? No.
