Hi Everyone,

I found this to be an interesting post on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas for future cruisers and look up information from past cruisers on cabins they may have stayed in. This is a place where everyone can share the best knowledge about cabins. Please add any relevant information that you think would be useful.

Please name your post with the title "Cabin # xxxx" so that those searching for information on a specific cabin can locate those easier with the search this forum option by using the cabin number that they need info on.

After the questions please add any comments concerning location - close to elevators, far from specific venues, etc. Also, post links to your photos of specific cabins or ATTACH PHOTOS to the post.

There is already something similar here. It certainly is not a full listing, however.

Site is in dire need of updating. Some of the cabins listed no longer exist, e.g. E 299, U298 (Fantasy Class).

Any other comments? We loved this cabin. It had close access to the elevators, a short distance to the forward Verandah deck, and a short walk to the Lido deck.

We would definitely book this cabin again.

Plus this one will be dedicated solely to Carnival. Seems like a good idea considering CCL also has a multitude of nifty cabin categories (PT/5A, 4K, 4J, etc.).

We will be sailing the Carnival Splendor August 1st....I'll definitely fill this out when we return. I know I searched and searched for info about the suite on Empress deck and didn't find much info. Since there are 3 of us and it's a 'celebration' cruise...we decided to splurge a bit. Have had every type of room...from inside cabin on Riviera, to porthole on Main, to balcony on Verandah..and this time, Grand Suite on Empress! (haven't had an 'aft wrap-around' yet, tho

I'll make sure to list cabin number and any info re: noise location to activities, etc

Thanks

Glad to hear it. I'm booked in the same cabin, sorta.
I'm booked on the Fantasy right across the hall. Checked the layout on both ships, they're the same. So, it's good to hear you liked the cabin and location. I liked the location too. I was a little worried about the obstructed view. But, you make it sound ok. That relieves my worries.

Oasis was only Oasis ... so with Carnival it would need to be broken down by ship (or class) to me to be really effective.
