Outstanding ship that Is a must see. From boarding through disembarkation you feel completely taken care of and special among the 5500 other passengers. There is more to do than time during the week to do it. We sailed with three generations and never heard a complaint! After being in this shipp it is hard to imagine being happy on any other.

The food was pretty standard in the dining room and windjammer. But, the real jewels are the other venues for eating. The Chops Grille and Giovanni's which both have an additional charge were worth every penny. They are quiet, relaxing, small restaurants in Central Park. The service was outstanding and the food was not to be believed. It rivaled the finest Boston restaurants we have eaten at. There was also a great option of lunch in the Park Cafe where great, made to order salads were available. There was the Wipe Out Cafe that kept all the younger kids very happy. There was something at every turn.

The staterooms are typical. We had a large outside balcony room. It was pretty tight and typical for the R.C. Cabins. It did however have a king sized bed that was the most comfortable bed we have slept on. Our son slept on a fold it couch that was about the size of a queen sized bed. Comfort was great but there was very little space to move once the couch was open. There are lots of nooks and crannies to put things but with 3 in the stateroom we found it hard to put clothes away and drawers were not accessible when the couch was open. Bathroom was fine and even though it was small it served its purpose.

There are hundreds of activities on board. The daily Cruise Compass had listing from morning till night. We enjoyed all the shows, some were truly outstanding. The water show, ice show, and Come Fly With Me were breathtaking. The casino is quite large and never crowded. There were lots of kids activities that we saw happening but did not take part in. There was the zip line which is a blast and the wave boarding was a bit more strenuous and fun.

Labadee was great! There is lots to do and we enjoyed a great day at the beach and kayaking. Due to the location of the dock in Jamaica it is a long ride to and from many of the excursions but there is a new lovely area to get off and do some shopping.

R.C. And the Oasis staff did an maxing job making this a special ship and we felt as though the ship was a destination we are looking forward to returning to. Even though it is one of the largest ships afloat you do not feel that it is overwhelming. It was created in such a smart way that each section seems cozy. Getting around the ship was quite easy and there was a touch screen at every elevator to direct you. As cruising goes this is a ship not to be missed.
