Fantastic ship on great intinerary
Oasis of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review summaryFirst cruise on an Oasis class ship and we were sold. First thought it would be intimidating and crowd - neither the case. Ship is well designed allow for separate areas (neighborhoods) that hide how many people you're actually sailing with. Food was great - highly recommend the chefs table. Plan to a sail her in the future.
Food and Dining
Great bar with 2 levels. We used it as part of an on-board group gathering area. Super responsive staff. Great views of the promenade and sleek lighting. Entertainment offered on some nights.
Thought the food and service was great. Service slightly better than MDR - far more responsive. Food was above the MDR, but not a WOW.
Very nice selection. Crew kept the lines organized and clean. We avoided rush hour and would use it earlier in the day.
Nautical deco fits nicely with the ship. Piano bar keeps you entertained and attentive staff keep a drink in you hand.
The first place we visit when you board an Oasis class ship. Out of the way and no one finds it until day 2. So food is very fresh and service is great.
Main Dining Room
Huge elegant venue. Wait staff worked like crazy keeping everyone served. They hustled. Food was very good, but because of the number of people, quality was stretched.
The place to visit when you're on the pool deck. Bar tenders worked well together, kept the margaritas coming.
Dunes Mini Golf
Used it to pass a few minutes. Not very large but a pleasant distraction until too many other people end up finding it.
A blast. Would be nice if it were longer.
Vitality at Sea Spa
Excellent spa service. Only complaint is its expensive.
The Back Deck
Used it to get a morning drink. When not crowded, a nice place to get a drink and relax, but seats fill quickly and becomes tougher to get service.
Nice pools, but nothing out of the ordinary. Very crowded with families at peak time. Lounge chairs close to the pool are scarce, need to get there early.
Oasis class ships have the nicest (longest) running tracks. Right off the fitness center (down a set of stairs) and mostly enclosed from the direct wind/sun. Walk or jog - its a nice place to work off the calories.
Center Ice Rink
Great entertainment - iceskating at sea. And if you felt lucky, you could try it out on select times. Amazing skaters master flying across the ice on a rocking ship!
Nice sized casino for a cruise ship. Had easy entrance from 2 decks. Didn't win anything.
A trademark of Oasis class ships. Hand carved horses are great for a quick break and photo op with an icecream cone.
Its like a water circus. Very talented water acrobats showing off their craft to great music.
The place for comedy shows. Nice lounge, attentive staff and great entertainment.
Nice quiet area with ample selection of reading material.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
When you board, head to the central park cafe for lunch. Not many people find it until later in the cruise. Good food quiet venue.
