Looking forward to hearing how your trip goes! We were supposed to go on the Oasis next week but just cancelled because of fears of being sick and quarantined (my bf) and fears of Royal Caribbean not being totally prepared for full capacity in terms of staffing and supply chain shortages (me). Hopefully our fears are unsupported and you have a great time!

Today we didn't arrive to Port Canaveral until like noon. Was hoping most people would get off the ship but didn't really happen. It's HOT! 

I was disappointed in Windjammer today too. Breakfast went until 1 so when i went for lunch, one side had lunch and one side breakfast still. Nothing very appetizing so i came to Playmakers for lunch. And they were short staffed so i had a wait.

Been following Oasis a bit for the past few months, seems like the cast/crew may have been shaken up as the ship shifted to its new home port? No Cats, no Aqua80s, dining has been hit-or-miss…Dara I hope your experiences prove me wrong! We’re on Oasis in October, hoping things shake out over the summer.

We have all the shows on this cruise. The main dining has been great and the specialty restaurants for the most part are good too. Just some glitches. 

Keep it tuned here for more experiences.

The hibachi place was OK. I only paid $10 because i had UDP. 

But for those who were wondering if they should pay for the specialty dining or save money...for fear of missing out...trust i would not pay for these extras unless the package price was outstanding. The food in the MDR is great. IMO the specialty places although good should have been so much better for the extr cost. 

Ive been on 3 RC cruises now and im still not blown away with the SD. So for me it's a balance of cost. 

I can honestly sayif i was a more frequent cruiser id be eating less onboard because you just get sick of same foods. 

Also i thought Oasis would have a nice display as you walk into WJ and it didnt. 

I gotta say WJ on this ship needs to do better. 

Sorry to be so critical but i really expected more from seeing others experiences.

My favorite spots on Oasis:

Central Park just beautiful and peaceful. it gets windy on sea days. 

Jogging track is always my fave spot but on Oasis passengers cannot access helipad. 😫 

Boardwalk is really cool spot too.

Music Hall is cozy and good place to hide during the day if you want a quiet spot. 

Sun deck and Solarium is a great spot! No kids and it has a beautiful atmosphere to it.

My parents are on this Oasis cruise as well (May 22, out of Bayonne). They have been on over 40 some cruises (most Royal Caribbean) so they know what to expect and they have been disappointed by many things this cruise. The ship is under staffed for sure. Windjammer has been having long lines due to not enough seating. Not opening the time they were suppose to.  My parents who are diamond plus were not able to get a seat at all on many of the shows even through the concierge service. Even the concierge service noted they were definitely understaffed. My parents somehow got My Time dining which they never do (they tried to change it to an earlier time) they said basically they were not able to, but the lines are longer. They did book a night a Chops to finally enjoy a sit down meal. They've never really had issues with dining in the past so they were a bit surprised. 

Aside from that, my parents did comment that port day on the ship was very busy, didn't seem like many got off.  They had heard 5400 - 5500 approx for passenger count. Just FYI stuff!

I hope you have a great rest of the cruise! I am enjoying following the posts. My whole family (party of 8 ) go on Oasis again in Oct, so I am just comparing experiences!

They were not able to sit in reserved seating areas ?

This is what they passed on to me when I asked them about it....

2nd day of cruise,went to diamond concierge about getting reservations for the comedians and illusionsist show and he told us they were sold out. He said we could wait at door for cancellations and availability. Did get a reservation for aqua 80 on day 5. Lots of top tier cruisers on this ship.

Hmm.  If they are D+ they shouldn’t have needed reservations to any of those shows.  It sounds like the D+ weren’t included in the reserved seating areas of those venues.  Thanks for the information.

How are you finding the MDR? Hearing long wait to be seated even with a reservation and very slow service. Making me worried.

Not long. Make reservations.

I have had no issues with dining at specialty restaurants. MDR has been busy but it's quick.

I saw Aqua80 last night and no issues getting a seat. The show was fantastic! Great music and talented performers. 

Windjammer has been my biggest complaint. 

Did the Eco Tour to Blue Lagoon and for the price do not recommend. It was basically walking tour to a tower and other sections. I had to pay to eat and drink and it was pricey. But the beach was nice. The boat ride over was cool too.
