2nd time sailing on the Oasis. Wonderful ship. I was fortunate to sail on her during the first year of service. She's starting to show her age. The beds mattresses are in desperate need of updating. 

Menu's in Silk are very predictable with only a couple of menu items changing from night to night.

Windjammer staff was very small and not helpful, breakfast was a chaotic nightmare. Royal has really cut back on deck staff, as finding a drink was incredibly hard.

The ship has added new stores, but with this said, the sacrifice was evident as I could never find the Crown & Anchor Society desk. I even asked 7 crew members, they didn't know...

These are minor items, the Oasis is still my favorite ship...

Onward and Upward, the next cruise I have Diamonds in my eyes:-)

Ship Quality
Sailed on the Oasis when she first went into service. She needs some TLC
Food and Dining
Predicable dining in the Silk Dining Room with only a few minor change from night to night...I think the food selection needs upgrading.
Service and Staff
Windjammer and Comedy Club staff needs improvement in attitude and service.
Cats is not a great selection for family value. Diving show is the star!
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Cruise director was not visible...Didn't seem like crew was into having a good time...
Destinations and Excursions
Haiti is sad. Starving children hanging onto fences wanting food. Don't walk through village you will be begged to death. Nothing to do if you don't like water sports. My kids have been there so many times they don't even get off the ship because the ship offers better entertainment.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
The Oasis Allure Terminal will spoil you. If you ever sail on any other ship the old boarding procedure is not great. Love Port Everglades!
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Starving children hanging on the fence for food, bob wire fences around the property, chair and float attendants rude, and if you don't have interest in water activities there is absolutely no reason to get off the ship. My two sons (16 & 12) have not gotten off the ship for the past two years (We cruise every year) because there's more activities aboard the ship versus Labadee... It's beautiful for 1st time cruisers, but once is enough. This is our 11th straight year of cruising!
