Review summary

Some might say that Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Sea's is too big of a ship for them. I think it depends on what you want. We had read reviews of how you could never find a deck chair, how you only had glimpses of the ocean and that the crew was mediocre. I cry foul! The ship is beautiful. Be prepared that you won't know where most things are for the first few days, but anytime you are lost or need a direction or have a question answered, a smiling crew member is there to assist you. We cannot say enough about the cleanliness of the ship and the amount of room in our cabin. We had a balcony facing central park that was fantastic. The first day we arrived we were very concerned about the noise coming from the pool ( lots of party music ) once we set sail that was finished and we found our cabin to be calm and noise free. We always found a deck chair to sit in whether it be in the sun or in the shade. One of our favorite places to lounge was the Solarium at the front of the ship. It is over 16 years of age only and a wonderful quiet solitude. The views of the sea from this ship were amazing and there were tons of viewing area and spaces. We loved our stateroom attendant who went above and beyond each day. The crew of the ship was wonderful, the shows amazing. We would not recommend the "My Time Dining" it was a nightmare. The first night everyone who had the my time dining showed up whether they had a reservation or not and it was absolute chaos. We head right on out of there and to the formal dining room "Silk" where we met a wonderful head waiter, Glenn who was very happy to change us to 8pm seating. It was such a blessing as we had amazing wait staff who is now like family to us & dining at that time of night is not rushed. You can take your time, talk to the wait staff and leave when you are ready as opposed to being rushed out for the next seated dining. We loved Oasis of the Seas and can't wait until we cruise again!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
A very roomy cabin for 2 people. The balcony was lovely to sit out on in the morning and hear the birds singing away. We were under the pool deck and on a few mornings we could hear deck chairs for the pool being moved. Other than that the only sound from the pool to the room was the day of embarkation when a reggae band was playing celebration music. Our cabin attendant was funny and did an excellent job. Our cabin was very clean. Tip: bring an extension cord and a surge strip. There is 1 outlet on the vanity with 2 outlet plugs. There is no way you can reach your phone on charge or anything else over to your bedside. Being mid ship was awesome. Although, unless docked, there was never a time we did not feel the ship moving. Wear those Sea Bands and you'll be fine.

Ship tip

Be prepared to realize that it is going to take some time to get to know where things are on the ship. If you make it an adventure, you'll get around in no time. Don't be afraid to ask for directions. If you are bringing a carry on, make sure it rolls as you will spend a lot of time waiting to board
