This was out first cruise on Royal Caribbean and our girls were excited to cruise on oasis of the seas. Although we had fantastic service from the speciality restaurants and our stateroom attendant, the dining room experience was the worst we have experienced on 15+ cruises we have taken. I would only return to this ship if I ate only at the speciality restaurants and avoided the dining room. We had reservations in the dining room and waited over 45 minutes to just check in.  At the same time those guest without reservations were seated before us. Lastly the food we were served was cold and poor quality. We asked to speak with that food and beverage manager while on board to share this poor experience with them but ey did not contact us. 

Cabin / Stateroom The cabin was nicely laid our and our stateroom attendant was outstanding.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
It took over 40 minutes to check in at embarkation. Although the reservation appeared correct with my on line checkin they had one of our daughters listed twice and it required the port employee to have to go to his office and make this change after unsuccessfully trying at the desk

We took a shore excursion to Tortega and had to go through customs going and comcing back. It was also a one hour boat ride. I wish I had been told that when booking. I would have selected a different excursion
Philipsburg, St. Maarten


Avoid the dining room instead enjoy the speciality restaurants. It was worth the extra cost for us to received better food and service.
