Review summary

This ship is our new favorite. We were VERY worried about sailing in such a large ship. We never felt crowded with so many options for things to do or beautiful place to relax and enjoy the ocean. The ship is clean and well maintained. The staff and customer service is outstanding. The food and cocktails are fantastic.

Aqua, ice and Come Fly away Shows were fantastic! Musicians were great, especially in Central Park. Opening comedian was Ok but headliner was great. Cats is outdated and needs to be replaced.

Service and Staff

Best service out 14 cruises. Loved the Trellis bar (Ramesh aka Maurice) in Central Park. Maitre d (Yasar) and wait staff in Coastal Kitchen were outstanding. The entire staff on this ship was friendly and motivated.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship is very well designed. Never felt crowded. Common areas are clean and well maintained. Time for new carpeting.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very clean, well maintained Junior suite with extended balcony gave us plenty of room. Huge walk in closet. Decent sized bathroom with a lot of storage. Mini fridge, several drawers and shelves for storage.

Ship tip

Do your homework on tips and tricks before boarding the Oasis for viewing spots, food to try, etc.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Getting from Orlando Airport was a pain. Fun little town. Lots of great dining options and shops. Will avoid departing from this port in the future if at all possible.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Nice port to unwind. Food provided was good. Alcohol choices are pared down on this RCI Island however service was great. Wear water shoes as it is rocky.

Falmouth, Jamaica

3 out of 5
Least favorite of all ports that we have visited in 14 cruises. We only get off the ship here if we want to grab something in the secured port stores.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We took a taxi to Paradise beach. This is an inexpensive beach day with great food, drinks and service.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We were off the ship and at our shuttle pick up spot by 7:30am
