7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 02, 2016
Ship: Oasis of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 10160
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ship was new and clean.  The food choices were lacking.  The pool deck did not have tables to sit and eat to take care of overcrowding in the Windjammer. For breakfast there would be a long line waiting for a table unless you were taking the food to your room.  No trays available for takeout. After the Windjammer closed there was no beverage options available outside. You would have to go down to deck 5 or 4.  Cafe on 4 always closed early.

The ice cream machines closed sometimes as early as 6 pm which was unusual and you would have to walk over to the boardwalk and pay for ice cream. The comedy venue was too small and always had a wait to get in without a reservation.  After waiting for 30 minutes, we were turned away.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Main dining area was great. Service was quick. Windjammer was short on seats and variety of foods from day to day.

Onboard Activities

They need a meet and great for 18-20. To old for kids program, too young to drink and mix in with the singles.

Multiple ships came in at the same time. Not allowed through security if you got there beyond 3 hrs from your flight. At least 1 1/2 hours to get through security line.
