Review summary

A cruise on Royal Caribbean's "Oasis of the Seas" is worth every penny spent.  The ship is magnificent, the food is superb, and the entertainment is incredible!  The ports of call were beautiful, but there was more than enough to do on the ship to never leave it.  Walking in the ship's Central Park made one forget that he/she was at sea.  Listening to music and relaxing before dinner was enchanting.  Walking down the Boardwalk was reflective of wiling away lazy afternoons and nights at the beach.  Seeing the full-length Broadway musical "Cats," being awed by the high dives and synchronized swimming in the Aqua-Theatre, rocking with the headliner entertainer Joel Mason, experiencing the unbelievable talent in the "Come Fly with Me" production, and being reminded of the creative writings of Hans Christian Andersen in the spectacular ice show "Frozen in Time" were more than worth the price of the cruise.  The quality of the food and the service by the wait staff in the Silk Dining Room was comparable to four-star or five-star restaurants.  The food was delicious with a remarkable array from which to choose each night.  With several thousand guests onboard, we were concerned about long lines and congested areas, but we were pleasantly surprised at the ease of moving around the ship and gaining access to all the activities we wanted to do.  The food service areas are located throughout the ship and allow an atmosphere of space and relaxed dining.  Pools and hot tubs are also easily accessible and are designed to seem less crowded than those on other ships.  Walking of the decks at night and being able to see the stars and enjoy the quiet beauty of its vastness made a lasting impression on us.  Crew members truly seemed to want guests to enjoy their vacation to the utmost.  We would recommend this ship to anyone wanting a memorable cruise, but we especially recommend it to families because there are so many experiences offered to people of all ages.

The chefs are to be commended for being able to prepare thousands of meals each day and still maintain the quality of each dish. No matter which venue in which we dined, the food was always hot, fresh, and delicious.

It is amazing to see the talent and skill of the performers and the quality of the shows onboard. Tickets to shows of this caliber would costs hundreds of dollars on land.

Service and Staff

Our head waiter, Ivan, and our assistant waiter, Duncan, and their team in The Silk Dining Room offered friendly, efficient, and impeccable service. Their aim was for us to have the best dining experience possible, and they delivered. Not only were the meals delicious, but they catered to our schedule when entertainment times needed to be met. They are superior ambassadors of Royal Caribbean.

Ship Quality

The designers of the ship must be geniuses! It is nearly unbelievable to see the mastery of their planning. Attention to detail is amazing. The layout of the ship gives one a feeling of spaciousness even though there are five thousand guests onboard.
