We had usually cruised with Carnival.  We chose the Oasis of the Seas for something new and different.  We had fairly high expectations, since we were paying considerably more for our cruise.  This is what we found:


-The ship is beautiful.  It is well appointed and the neighborhoods were fabulous.

-Our cabin steward was attentive.  Exceptional service.


Now for the the disappointments:


-We have always used these cruising opportunities for professional photography for the family.  The scenes did not change throughout the entire cruise and the poses were the exact same for each photographer.  The photos were horrible.

-Food was mediocre, at best and 24 hour venues were very limited.

-Entertainment was less than thrilling EXCEPT for Lou Gazzaro, who was awesome.

-Ports of call had less than desirable excursions, so we went out on our own for the most part.  One excursion that was booked was cancelled. 

-On board activities were fairly lame.

-Long lines made getting to ticketed events a nightmare.

-Expense was about 3x what we normally spend.  Everything was more expensive.


Overall, I will not cruise RC again.  I'm looking for a new line to try.
