Default Secrets about the Oasis of the Seas

We leave in 2 weeks for our first cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. I have always found that Cruise Critic board members have very well kept secrets about ships sailing all over the world.

Ok - it's time to tell all....what about the Oasis of the Seas. What do we need to know about the ship that will help make our cruise more enjoyable. It's too bad we all find these little secrets the day before we get off the ship.

Thanks!

Skip the Windjammer on embarkation and go straight to the Park Cafe, I don't know the exact floor but they have the best hand carved roast beef sandwiches ever. You will not be sorry!!

I can't comment on the roast beef sandwiches, but I'll second skipping the windjammer! There are so many other places to eat. We actually only went into the windjammer once the whole week-food was fine, but there are better places!

We liked the shuffleboards location on the Oasis. It's behind the screen of the Aqua Theater w/ big Adirondack chairs-great view of the wake

Please have a bagel hot dog at the Wipe Out Cafe for me!!! They're so bad for you but oh so good!!! If you want to add a little more fat to it, there are slices of american cheese in there as well. I put it in the hot dog bagel-it's simply fatty heaven!!

Have a blast and don't worry about not being able to get everything done in a week....it's impossible

Park Cafe also puts out very good salads. I have given this up before so it is no secret. During the 70's show the place to be is on the rising tide bar. Great view and it is were the cruise director will end his show.

Our upcoming adventure on the Oasis isn't till next year but we, too, want to know as much as possible before we board. I'll definitely be keeping a close eye on on this thread hoping scores of past cruisers will jump in and share the points of interest that may be tucked away in the less traveled nooks 'n crannies.
Sending a big thanks to the person who'd already posted the location of the shuffleboards.

You wouldn't, by any chance know where the ping pong tables are, do you? If so, please include deck number when replying. After all, it IS a big ship and I'm kinda old. LOL

We found the Solarium buffet the first day and it is great and normally not crowded until people discover it we has some nice breakfast and lunch up there.

We had dinner at Vintages wine bar we sat outside had tapas and wine and have to tell you it was one of the highlights of our cruise.

The two leads of hairspray did a small show in the jazz club which was great. Best place to see the parade is from the Schooner bar and you can watch it from a level up..

I just happened to read your post and see that you are in love with OUR favorite little spot on the ship! That little area with the adirondack chairs is so cozy! Many an evening, my husband and I would sit there sipping a cocktail and watching the wake behind the ship. Ahhhh, can't wait to go in March!

Red face Do NOT rent the regular phones !

They are $25. a week. For $5. more you can rent the I-Phones. They have the capability to call, text or GPS. Plus have the daily activity schedule.

Also......they made the best eggs benedict in the main dining room. They are not listed on the menu. Just ask for them.

You don't have to be with little ones to enjoy the character breakfast (but you do need to make reservations). Lots of fun.

Enjoy.

Anna would love to but we are on the Freedom in Dec 2011 and Pullmantur Sovereign 10-27-2012 with a b2b on the Navigaton doing a TA Nov 3/2012. No way could we squeeze in another cruise in 2012. Maybe another time.
Hugs, Pat

If you are looking for somewhere for quiet time found Solarium in evening very relaxing ,would go up after dinner for some down time before shows,also Central Park is nice in evening.

The ping pong tables are just outside the Wipeout Cafe near the basketball courts and mini-golf area on deck 15. It's enclosed so your ball doesn't keep going and going and going.

Default Anyone have the number to dial on the House Phone for Giovanni's Restaurant?

I noticed that someone said there's a number to call to make reservations once you are on the ship for the specialty dining restaurants? Would any of you past cruisers possibly have that number or has it been posted here somewhere? Thanks! Cruising in less than 2 weeks on the Oasis!

Hi
We came off the Oasis yesterday, think the number is 7000 once you are onboard, definately try the roast beef sandwiches in the park cafe, and the egg and bacon english muffins in the park at breakfast, they also do nice fruit pots to take away, on the boardwalk the bar at the end does nice corndogs and also chip and dip combos.

Hairspray is only shown 3 times, if you are a fan you can go in the standby queue before the performance and get it, we saw it twice and it was great. also, the two main performers from hairspray do a show in dazzles, its good but you need to get there early to get a seat as it gets really busy. hope you enjoy it, we loved every minute of it.

Thank you! Greatly appreciated and duly noted on my "wanna-do" list.
