Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas Best & Worst Staterooms: Summary
Best Cabins onboard the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas: staterooms on Decks 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 17. Cabins to be wary of onboard the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas will be staterooms on Deck 3. If you are an avid Royal Caribbean fan but have never been on the Oasis of the Seas, be forewarned that, in addition to no smoking in any stateroom, there is also no smoking on private balconies overlooking the Boardwalk or Central Park on Oasis class ships. A fee of $250.00 will be charged for smoking in these areas.

Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins onboard the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas

Deck 3

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Deck 3 of the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas is just beneath Deck 4 public areas which include the jazz club, a dance club, a comedy club, and the casino. While it's possible to find a quieter cabin on this deck, it's going to take some thoughtful strategy.

  • Forward on Deck 3 of the Oasis of the Seas, Ocean View Staterooms 3178-3192 port side and 3578-3590 starboard are under the clubs and lounge area. This will likely mean after hours noise factors. If you are light sleeper, you may prefer to find a cabin elsewhere on this deck, bring earplugs, or invest in a wave machine (a sound device available at a specialty retailer like Brookstone -- produces pleasant sounds that can wipe out the unpleasant sounds). 
  • On a more positive note, cabins 3178-3192 and 3578-3590 are closest to the conference center which would be quite handy if you are presenting or attending meetings.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 3194-3224 and 3594-3624 are across the hall from Studio B and the Ice Rink. This might cause some noise issues while these facilities are open, but it is not likely much of an after hours concern.
  • The rest of the cabins on Deck 3 of the Oasis of the Seas  (3226-3256 port side, interior cabins 3800-3864, and 3626-3656 starboard) are underneath the casino and will likely have after hours noise. Once again, we suggest finding a cabin in another area, bringing earplugs, or investing in a wave machine.
  • Interior cabin 3862 is oddly shaped and slightly more spacious.
  • Exterior cabins 3178 and 3578, and inside cabins 3852 and 3856 are wheelchair accessible.
  • We are not suggesting the cabins on this deck should be completely avoided, but some of the worst cabins aboard the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas are on Deck 3 because of the public areas above.

Deck 6

Cabins on Deck 6 on the Oasis of the Seas are close to a wide variety of ship venues. Forward, you could choose to reserve a cabin close to the spa fitness center. Aft cabins are close to the Boardwalk, where there are family friendly venues such as the ice cream parlor and Pets at Sea (where parents can build a toy pet with their children). Casual restaurants, such as Johnny Rockets and the Seafood Shack, are also in this vicinity. However, some cabins might have noise issues because a main drag of the Royal Caribbean is also underfoot.

  • Forward on Deck 6, exterior cabins 6130-6160 port side, exterior cabins 6530-6560 starboard, and interior cabins 6135-6153 and 6535-6553 are close to spa facilities on the Oasis of the Seas.
  • Interior cabins 6143, 6147, 6149, and 6153 are larger than average and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Exterior cabins 6226, 6230, 6232, 6236, 6626, 6630, 6632, and 6636 are larger and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Staterooms 6172-6192 and 6572-6592 are situated over venues such as bars and karaoke which could be a bit noisy after hours.
  • On Deck 6 of the Oasis of the Seas, staterooms 6268-6320 and 6668-6720 are over the top tier of the main dining room of the Oasis of the Seas. Keeping in mind most supper guests usually exit by 10:30pm, there could still be noise from staff cleaning overhead as late as 11:30pm. Since most people don't return to their cabins until after 11:00pm, hearing noises (such as from vacuum cleaners) shouldn't be much of a concern. Breakfast is served from 7:30-9:30pm, so you might hear noise above from as early as 6:30am to 10:30am because staff are probably up there a good hour before and after dining hours for preparation and clean up. However, this shouldn't be a major early morning noise issue because many people go to Lido or other casual restaurants for breakfast.
  • Port side and starboard, all of the exterior staterooms and suites have private balconies on Deck 6 of the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas.

Deck 7

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Several cabins are highly rated by our cruise experts!

The Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas Deck 7 staterooms for the most part have cabins directly above and beneath, and this can buffer some of the noise from public areas on this ship. All exterior staterooms directly port side and starboard have balconies, and on Deck 7 the variety of staterooms expands to include Family Ocean View Staterooms.

  • Aft on Deck 7 of the Oasis of the Seas, Family Ocean View Staterooms 7330 and 7730 are the most spacious stateroom accommodations on this deck, and also have over-sized balconies. On the Oasis of the Seas, family cabins sell out very quickly because of the extra space, clever floor plan, and limited supply. We suggest you book one as early as possible if a family stateroom is your preference.
  • Forward, there are eleven ocean view staterooms (7100-7108 and 7500-7510) which do not have balconies but are a bit more spacious than standard.
  • If you're looking for an interior cabin, we suggest 7101-7153 and 7400-7553. These are all located forward on the Oasis of the Seas Deck 7, and do have cabins above and beneath them which makes them quieter than other inside cabins available.

Deck 8

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Several cabins are highly rated by our cruise experts!

Deck 8 of the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas' cabins are well situated because most staterooms will have cabins above and beneath to buffer noise from public areas. This deck also features a variety of staterooms and suites from which to choose.

  • Forward on Deck 8 of the Oasis of the Seas, Ocean View Staterooms 8100-8108 and 8500-8510 do not have balconies, but do have a great view of the ocean from more spacious accommodations than average.
  • Interior cabins 8439, 8441, 8443, 8445, and 8448 are right next to public bathrooms. We suggest finding a better situated interior cabin to avoid this noise issue.
  • All exterior staterooms and suites directly port side and starboard have balconies on Deck 8 of the Oasis of the Seas.
  • Deck 8 on the Oasis of the Seas introduces the Boardwalk View Balcony Staterooms (8293-8329 and 8695-8729). Each of these interior cabins has a balcony overlooking the aft Boardwalk area. The only concern about these particular staterooms is the fact that there is little to buffer noise beneath you on Deck 7, so that could be an issue(but not likely an after hours concern). You can find the same accommodations on Decks 9 and 10 if you want to completely avoid any likelihood of additional noise. As mentioned, no smoking is permitted on these balconies and a $250.00 fee will be charged for any infraction.
  • With 823 sq. ft. of living space and 772 sq. ft. balconies, the Aqua Theater Suites 8330 and 8730 aft on Deck 8 are luxurious indeed! Of the Aqua Theater Suites available on the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas, the Aqua Theater Suites on Deck 8 are the largest to be had. These two suites also command a fantastic view of the ocean!

Related: Oasis of the Seas Deck 8 Deck Plan (clickable deck layout to view individual cabin pictures and amenity lists)

 

Deck 9

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Several cabins are highly rated by our cruise experts!

On the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas Deck 9, accommodations are similar to Deck 8 but include the introduction of Royal Family Suites, and the Central Park View Staterooms. Also, because most of these staterooms have cabins above and beneath, there's going to be a bit more peace and quiet on this deck.
Forward, Ocean View Staterooms 9100-9108 and 9500-9510 do not have balconies, but do have more room than standard and nice ocean views.

  • With 580 sq. footage of living space and 238 sq. ft. balconies, Royal Family Suites 9244 and 9644 are rivaled only in size by the the Owner's Suites and the Aqua Suites on Deck 9 of the Oasis of the Seas. On the Oasis of the Seas, these family cabins sell out very quickly because of the extra space and clever floor plan. We suggest you book one as early as possible if a family suite is your preference.
  • Exterior staterooms 9162, 9166, 9170, and 9172 are larger than usual and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Interior cabins 9175-9255 and 9577-9655 are Central Park View Staterooms on Deck 9 of the Oasis of the Seas. These feature bay windows overlooking Central Park. With 199 sq. ft., these staterooms are larger than any of the other balcony staterooms. One possible drawback is the fact that there are no cabins beneath to help buffer any extraneous noise. If that is a concern but you would like to book one of these cabins, we suggest locating one on Deck 10 or Deck 11 of the Oasis of the Seas. Past guest reviews indicate that the balconies for staterooms 9229 and 9629 are as much as 50% larger than standard! 
  • Aft, Boardwalk View Staterooms with Balconies (9293-9329 and 9693-9729) do have the same accommodations above and beneath, and will likely be quieter than those on Deck 8 as a result. No smoking is permitted on these balconies and a $250.00 fee will be charged for any infraction.
  • Aft, the most spacious accommodations and balcony on Deck 9 of the Oasis of the Seas are to be found in the Aqua Theater Suites (9330 and 9730). These suites also command a beautiful view of the ocean as well!

Deck 10

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Several cabins are highly rated by our cruise experts!

Deck 10 staterooms and suites on the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas are also among the nicer choices because all of these have cabins above and beneath, and are thus quieter. Central Park View Staterooms on this deck also feature balconies!

  • Forward Ocean View Staterooms 10100-10108 and 10500-10510 are larger than most but do not have balconies on Deck 10 of the Oasis of the Seas.
  • Exterior cabins 10162, 10166, 10170, and 10174 are larger, have more balcony space, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Central Park View Staterooms with Balconies are 10177-10255 and 10577-10655. Past guests have stated that cabins 10229 and 10629 have much larger balconies than standard! No smoking is permitted on these balconies and a $250.00 fee will be charged for any infraction.
  • Midship, Royal Family Suites 10244 and 10644 are among the most spacious accommodations on Deck 10 of the Oasis of the Seas. The Royal Family Suites sell out very quickly because of the extra space, clever floor plan, and limited supply. We suggest you book one as early as possible if a family suite is your preference.
  • Boardwalk View Staterooms with Balconies on Deck 10 of the Oasis of the Seas are 10293-10329 and 10693-10729. No smoking is permitted on these balconies and a $250.00 fee will be charged for any infraction.
  • Port side and starboard, all exterior staterooms and suites on Deck 10 of the Oasis of the Seas.have balconies.
  • The most living space, the largest balcony, and the best aft view of the ocean will be from the Aqua Theater Suites (10330 and 10730) which are aft on Deck 10 of the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas!

Deck 11

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Several cabins are highly rated by our cruise experts!

Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas Deck 11 does not feature Royal Family Suites or Aqua Theater Suites, but does have some unique amenities. There are more family staterooms are available on this deck, and the cabins above and beneath provide more peace and quiet.

  • Family Ocean View Staterooms with Balconies (11158, 11162, 11166, 11170, and 11172) have about 90 sq. ft. more living space than other staterooms on this deck. Of these, suite 11158 is larger and is wheelchair accessible on Deck 11 of the Oasis of the Seas. Family cabins sell out very quickly because of the extra space and clever floor plan. We suggest you book one as early as possible if a family suite is your preference.
  • Interior Family Staterooms boasting just about as much room as the Family Ocean View Staterooms are 11137, 11139, 11147, and 11149. Again, we advice that these are reserved very quickly, so please book a family cabin as early as you can if this is your preference.
  • Forward on Deck 11 of the Oasis of the Seas, ocean view staterooms 11102-11106 and 11502-11506 are larger than standard and will have a nice view of the ocean!
  • Exterior cabins 11158, 11162, 11166, 11170, and 11172 more spacious than standard, have slightly larger balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Central Park View Staterooms with balconies are 11175-11255 and 11577-11655. Staterooms 11229 and 11629 have balconies that are much larger than standard. No smoking is permitted on these balconies and a $250.00 fee will be charged for any infraction.
  • Aft on Deck 11 of the Oasis of the Seas, Boardwalk View Staterooms with Balconies are 11293-11329 and 11693-11729. No smoking is permitted on these balconies and a $250.00 fee will be charged for any infraction.
  • All exterior staterooms suites port side and starboard have balconies.

Deck 12

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Several cabins are highly rated by our cruise experts!

Deck 12 is arguably one of the high-rent district of the ship. Many of the best cabins onboard the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas are generally on Deck 12. This is where the penthouse or Royal Suite, the Owner's suites, and Grand Suites are located. Given that this is where some of the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas' best cabin stewards are usually assigned.

  • There are only 18 standard interior cabins on Deck 12 of the Oasis of the Seas. Most of these are located forward on this deck.
  • Junior Suite 12236 and Superior Ocean View Stateroom 12250 are next to the penthouse or Royal Suite. This is a great service zone!
  • Junior Suite 12636 and Ocean View Stateroom 12650 are next door to the Presidential Suite. Here again, you will probably find superb service.
  • If you are interested in one of the Central Park View Staterooms with a Balcony, we suggest 12229-12255 and 12629-12655 due to their proximity to the most luxurious suites on the Oasis of the Seas Deck 12. Staterooms 12629 and 12229, according to past guests, have balconies that are much larger than standard!
  • Balcony staterooms 12293-12329 and 12693-12729 are excellent choices for views of the Boardwalk!
  • Exterior staterooms 12162, 12166, 12170, and 12172 are larger than standard, have slightly larger balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.

Deck 14

On the Oasis of the Seas, cabins on Deck 14 may have noise issues because the Lido pool area is above many staterooms. That said, we do not in any way suggest that Deck 14 is not a great place to pick a cabin because parents of small children might love this deck!

  • On Deck 14, exterior cabins 14138-14166 port side and 14538-14562 starboard are across the hall from youth activities areas, which include the nursery on the Oasis of the Seas. These would be fine staterooms for small families.
  • There are several wheelchair accessible cabins on Deck 14 of the Oasis of the Seas. These include exterior cabins 14166, 14168, 14170, and 14172, all of which are slightly larger with larger balconies. Boardwalk View Staterooms with Balconies 14297, 14299, 14301, and 14303 are wheelchair accessible. Central Park View Staterooms with Balconies 14251, 14253, 14651, and 14653 are also wheelchair accessible and are slightly larger than standard.
  • Noise sensitive travelers may want to steer clear of exterior and interior cabins 14174-14254 port side and 14574-14654 starboard because these are under the pool area, and there could be after hours noises such as the scraping of deck chairs when staff are cleaning.
  • While not directly beneath the teen disco, cabins interior cabins 14293 and 14693 are close. You may want to consider an inside cabin elsewhere on Deck 14 of the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas.

Deck 17

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
All of the suites are highly rated by our cruise experts!

The Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas Deck 17 is without question the most exclusive-suites only-upscale neighborhood. Located close to the chapel, the suites on this deck would be very convenient for wedding parties, and for the romantic at heart. All of the suites are two decks high, and feature luxurious amenities and modern décor.

  • With 1,524 sq. ft. of living space and an 843 sq. ft. balcony, the Royal Loft Suite 1740 is the most luxurious suite on Deck 17 of the Oasis of the Seas! Located aft on this deck, balcony views from this suite are incredible!
  • The two Sky Loft Suites (1718 and 1720) are located aft, port side. Each has 722 sq. ft. of living space and a 410 sq. ft. balcony.
  • The remaining 25 are Crown Loft Suites, each with 545 sq. ft. of living space and an114 sq. ft. balcony on Deck 17 of the Oasis of the Seas.
  • Crown Loft Suite 1742 is a bit larger and is wheelchair accessible.
  • The aft Crown Loft Suites, 1722-1738, are situated between the Royal Loft Suite and a Sky Loft Suite on Deck 17 of Oasis of the Seas. These suites have a great aft view of the ocean!
