Review summary

The ship is a thing of wonder. Who thought something that big could float. I cannot imagine the logistics it takes to feed and move that many people. It was one of those bucket list items. There were almost too many things to do. There were plenty of deck chairs. But there were some drawbacks. The Adult only area (Solarium) is at the front of the ship and almost enclosed in glass which made it feel like a sauna. When I sat out on deck, I had to move over to the side of the ship. I purchased the soda package with the cup which can be used at the Coca-Cola Freestyle machines of which there are 6 on the boat. (4 in the Windjammer and 2 on the Royal Promenade) It is a great concept, if the machines worked consistently, which wasn't the case on this cruise. Hence, the lines for soda. I complained to Guess Services, but it didn't seem to help. You could get soda at the bar, but not the same selection as the machines. I'm enjoyed the cruise and can check it off my list. I may try one of the other larger ships, but I can honestly say I had as much fun on the Liberty and Navigator as I did on the Oasis. They had most of the same amenities (minus Central Park and Boardwalk) but less of the crowds.

Ship tip

Be prepared to wait....wait on an elevator, wait to be seated for breakfast in the Windjammer, wait to get a soda from the machine (if it is working) and watch our for those darn scooters!
