Oasis of the Seas Traveler Reviews



Oasis of the Seas

Traveler Type: Couple | Room Type: Interior | Experience: 7+ cruises

The cruise was at least as good as  I expected. I would say the overall experience was excellant.My wife and I were both hindered with physical problems and did not get off the ship since we had been there several times before. We were disappointed with the food in the dinnning room and the last three days we ate at the Windjammer. As for the shows they were outstanding. The service was Royal Caribbean to the best.We were dissappointed with  the travel agency, we booked the cruise in January for our 56 annversay. The agent told us she would be in contact with us to schedule the shows and eating time, we waited and decided to get in touch with her, she was never at her extension and the message would say she would calll, which she neve did and therefore we did not get boooked and had to fight the long lines and were not able to see all the shows.



Awesome Time!

Traveler Type: Couple | Room Type: Suite | Experience: 7+ cruises

Great ship!  Great food!  Great staff!  We loved the rising tide bar.  The shows were excellent.  The food in all the different venues were great.  The only bad part was that there were no limes, some drinks just need lime.



Beautiful ship with disappointing crew

Traveler Type: Family w/young children | Room Type: Interior | Experience: 7+ cruises

The ship is extremely beautiful with what seemed like an endless amount of daily activities to participate in. The night time activities were lacking though. The food was good but really in need of a better variety, I expected a ship of this size to offer better selections. Royal Caribbean also needs to expand their complimentary dining. There is definitely more additional cost restaurants on this ship that gives you the being nickled and dimed experience. The staterooms are entirely too small. We booked four people in what we thought was a stateroom that could accommodate all of us and was extremely shocked to discover otherwise. The crew would have to be the biggest and most unbelievable disapppointment on this cruise. I have been on 18 cruises now and have always enjoyed the presence of the crew until this sailing. Don't get me wrong, a few were somewhat pleasant but for the most part they acted completely miserable in their jobs. They rarely smiled, would avoid you if possible, and were rude when you talked to them. Our stateroom attendant was not entirely too bad and was probably the most tolerable crew memeber we came across all week. The crew on this ship is clearly stressed and over worked, this showed in their overall attitudes. I have always loved sailing with Royal Caribbean but have found myself wanting to cruise Carnival next year for our spring break.
