The Oasis of the sea is very over priced  and a very poorly designed ship. While it is very pretty to look at it was poorly designed for a cruise ship. There were no windows and unless you had an outside cabin, were  dinning at the over crowded buffet or on the pool deck  you could not look out to the sea. The openess of the Central Park and Boardwalk neighborhoods made the hallways  on these floors very hot and muggy. To get to the upgraded restaurants we had to go through the uncovered Central Park and got wet from the rain. There was a limited amount of dinning options included in the price and the quality of the food at these venues was very poor! The dinning was very crowded.  The entertainers at the nightly shows were excellent however the amount and variety of other entertainment was limited. The kids club staff was great but compared to other cruise lines they closed early and charged for extended hours. Disembarking the ship was horrendous!
