Review summary

This was our first Cruise, it was a little dramatic as we missed our first port of call Labadee due to a passenger falling I'll, we changed course to the Bahamas to meet Oasis sister Ship the Allure so the passenger could be transferred and brought back to port Canaveral. With Hurricane Nate cancelling Cozumel the Captain decided to change our return course and headed for Labadee, so it was not a total disaster port wise.Over all a fantastic experience, will definitely go again.

Ship experiences

The food and service could not have been better, dinned in the windjammer mostly, on one of the formal nights we chose the American grill, could not find fault with any aspect of food, food choice or service.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Rock climbing wall, pools arcade and Zipline.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Watched the Aqua show Oasis of dreams three times, very impressed, combining high diving skills with a stage show, truly entertaining, also frozen on ice, very enjoyable, also the addition of the lady performing the sand art, excellent.

Children's Programs

The youngest in our party is fifteen,swimming, sunbathing and the Arcade where his choices.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
JB our room attend was very professional and friendly, he even insisted that he folds up and later prepares my son's pull out bed for him, Noelle the barman at sabors was always singing and dancing as he served us our drinks, it's the little things that you remember and bring home with you. Credit to each and every member of Oasis of the seas.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
For a Ship that accommodates 6000 passengers we never felt it was crowded,with all the choices of where to spend your day, either inside or out nowhere seemed uncomfortable, very clean and always noticeably somebody on hand to clean up the odd cocktail spill here and there.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bed very comfortable, room size with our 15 yrs old son was a little cramped but manageable, cleanliness five stars every time, well done JB.

Ship tip

Be prepared to be impressed with the sheer size of this Ship, how quickly it becomes your home for the week, how quickly you are greeted and made to feel welcome, and I believe the most important point of all, from the Captain to your barman, your waiter to your room attendant, the friendlyness is fantastic.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida Did not visit port

Just a drop off for boarding.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

4 out of 5
Labadee was a wonderful experience, weather was beautiful, beach and water amazing, I did not give Labadee five stars as my only negative point was the very aggressive selling on the way to the beach, it would be helpful to maybe advise people about this.This was as you where nearing the Aqua park. No excursions just sun sea food and cocktails.

Falmouth, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Again no excursions, pleanty of shopping. beautiful port, really felt the Jamaican vibe. We got to see the Disney Ship which docked alongside us.

Cozumel, Mexico Did not visit port

Hurricane Nate caused the closure of this port, really disappointed but as the Captain explained our safety is always first and foremost. Maybe next time.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Smooth and organized.
