Thank you for your wonderful review. We sail on her the end of November and look forward to eating our way around the ship.

Tips for the waiters cover breakfast, lunch, snack times, teas, etc, not just dinner.

The MDR wait staff are assigned throughout the ship for other meals. So, just consider your tip of $3 as $1.50 per meal and it is still a bargain.

We certainly enjoyed doing it (if you somehow couldn't tell). She's a wonderful ship. Have a great cruise.

Thank you SO MUCH for this awesome review! Hubby and I are on the Oasis in September and I was getting a little mind boggled at all the dining options. From everything I have read here on CC, I think we will also do our best to avoid the Windjammer...looks like we have some great breakfast options between the Solarium, Johnny Rockets & Park Cafe! We were also very curious about many of the a la cartes for dinners so you've helped us out tremendously! We were waffling on doing the chef's dinner (one of hubby's colleagues recommended it but I couldn't find much info about it) and I think it'll be a definite "yes" after your review of it. Thanks again! (also...shouldn't have read this at 9:30 at night...I'm pretty hungry now, lol)

Brain; Thanks so much for all the work you put into this review. It truly is amazing A group of us are going on the Oasis in October, and I have sent the link to this thread to each of them.
Looks like we will be getting off her as you are boarding the Enchantment.... We will all wave at you as a thank-you
