There were 6200 passengers and 2500 crew members on the ship.  I thought they did a great job of moving people.  There were only a couple of times that we had to wait a long time for an elevator.  They highly promote their specialty restaurants but we didn't try any.  We just don't feel we need to spend more money on food when there is plenty of food already.  The food on the Oasis was better than the other Royal Caribbean ships we have been on.  The promenade was beautiful and made you feel like you were downtown in an old time city.  Make sure to prebook any shows you want to see.  Don't bother to see Cats, it was awful.  The actors and actresses were good but the story is not.  Most of the audience fell asleep in the first act.  The second act was better but we didn't understand what the show was all about until the last few minutes.  The Aqua show was fantastic!  They were only able to perform once as first the weather didn't cooperate and then there was bacteria in the water.  Finally the very last night they were able to perform.  Watching them dive from 85 feet high into a 14' pool was very exciting.  The synchronized swimmers, divers and tumblers were all excellent.  We feel that Royal Caribbean is the al-a-carte cruise line.  You have to pay extra for most of the activities on the ship.  The ship was beautiful and we enjoyed the cruise, but talking to other passengers that have cruised on Royal Caribbean, the consensus was that they enjoyed the smaller ships because they got more personalized attention.

Hire Double the Fun Tours for a tour of the island. Jose Jean was wonderful and so knowledgeable about the island.
