Although we had a wonderful time on the OASIS, we found ourselves a bit dismayed at staffers who were not familiar with the ship. Yes, the crew was Unfamiliar and appeared Stressed. This disposition in no way added to the quality of our vacation where we are accustomed to chit-chatting with the crew and enjoying our total surroundings. In the main dining room, where the food that finally reached us was truly delicious, the poor disposition of the attendants prevailed. Subsequently, we stopped going to the dining room and located eateries elsewhere. Later on into the cruise, we found out that most of the crew were not working on adequate sleep. OVERWHELMED and OVERWORKED! Our personal solution: not to embark on a brand new ship until it has matured its staff. We have not been on the OASIS since, but I am sure we will again. After all, OASIS is a lovely ship with many themed areas aboard and the shows we were able to attend, were great! Speaking of shows, this was also our first experience of having to pre-book (even the free shows, COMEDY) since attendance was limited.
