Our Complete Guide to the Oasis of the Seas Bars

It has been an ongoing cruise tradition for us to “Drink Around the Ship”, making it a point to sample every bar menu and get at least one drink at every bar on our cruise ship. Our recent 7-night Oasis of the Seas cruise was no different. Over the course of the week, we made the rounds to all the Oasis of the Seas Bars.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

It had been over 3 years since we last sailed on an Oasis-class ship, so we were excited to get reacquainted. The Oasis of the Seas bars provide various drink options for all types of travelers. From a pub to a Mexican cantina to the unique Rising Tide Bar, there are plenty of drinks to be had. So in the name of research, we set off to sample each bar and drink menu.

Follow us as we travel to all the Oasis of the Seas bars during our “Drink Around the Ship” extravaganza! See the complete menus from all the Oasis of the Seas Bars and plenty of photos of all the craft cocktails.

Oasis of the Seas Bars – Deck 4

Located on deck 4 in Entertainment Place are Blaze, Comedy Live, and Jazz on 4. All of these venues offer a standard bar with the Quenchers at Sea menu.

Menu: Page 1, Page 2

Blaze is the nightclub on Oasis of the Seas, and the place to be for those who want to dance the night away as it offers a full bar and dance floor. Blaze remains open even when the rest of the ship closes down for the night, so it is definitely the venue of choice for the late night party-goers.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

It took us all week to make it into Blaze, but we were able to enjoy our final drinks of the cruise here!

Comedy Live is a small venue that hosts comedy shows throughout the cruise. These comedy shows feature two comedians and are usually offered at three different time slots most nights of the cruise. These shows in Comedy Live are available for pre-booking on your cruise planner prior to sailing, and it is highly recommended that you pre-book a reservation. If you wait until you board the ship, odds are that these shows will be completely booked up already. Don’t worry; you can always wait in the stand-by line for a chance to see the show.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

The Comedy Live venue has a service bar with waitstaff to serve up your favorite cocktails. There is no specialty menu here, but you will certainly want to order a few drinks while you laugh it up at the show.

Jazz on 4 is a small venue offering live jazz music and throwback decor.This quiet and less crowded venue is a nice place to relax and unwind after a long day of fun in the sun. This venue also hosts the Prohibition Party on select evenings which is available for an additional cost. Whether you choose to party Great Gatsby style or just enjoy the tunes, Jazz on 4 has waitstaff on hand to grab you your drinks of choice.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Also located on deck 4 are the Casino Royale and Studio B which offer full bar service. So, don’t forget to grab a drink while testing your luck in the casino or while enjoying the ice show in Studio B.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

The largest of the entertainment offerings, located on Decks 4 and 5, is the Opal Theater. The Opal Theater is home to the Broadway Show Cats, the production show Come Fly with Me, and other various entertainment options like the popular Love and Marriage show. With an abundance of waitstaff and a small make-shift bar, be sure to order a drink during these performances- perhaps a love connection?

Oasis of the Seas Bars – Deck 5

Deck 5 is the Royal Promenade, the central hub for shopping and plenty of bars and lounges.

On Air is the karaoke bar on Oasis of the Seas, which also serves up the standard Quenchers at Sea menu. We enjoyed a drink here while watching a game of Who Wants to Feel Like a Millionaire. We each went with some classic drinks- DB a long island iced tea and myself a vodka and cranberry.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Boleros, found on many Royal Caribbean ships, is the Latin themed bar and lounge. Whether you choose to relax while listening to some Latin music or partake in a dance class here, be sure to order some drinks from this specialty bar menu.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

During our stop in at Boleros, there were no activities or live music unfortunately, so we just grabbed a drink and relaxed for a bit before heading on to our next destination. I ordered a Royal Borgona, and DB ordered a Pasion Caliente Caipirinha. Both drinks suited our tastes.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Globe and Atlas Pub is the place to be for all the beer lovers to throw back a few pints and enjoy some live music. Centrally located on the Promenade, this is also a great spot for people watching. This venue does offer a specialty menu with various beer inspired cocktails.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

During our visit to the Globe and Atlas Pub, we were able to listen to some live pub-style guitar music while enjoying our cocktails. We even witnessed a few older couples dancing along to the classic tunes. Off the specialty menu, I ordered a Greyhound which was a bit too bitter for my tastes, and DB ordered a Dublin Iced Tea which he was not a fan of either.

Rising Tide Bar is a unique bar experience that everyone must try at least once when sailing on Oasis of the Seas. This spaceship-like capsule ascends and descends 3 floors from the Promenade to Central Park offering some great aerial views. The Rising Tide Bar also offers a specialty cocktail menu for you to enjoy along the ride.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

With a specialty menu similar to the R Bar on other ships, DB and I both fancied the drinks here, so we visited on a few separate occasions. During this visit, I ordered a Let’s Get Fizzical and DB a Rockstar.

Champagne Bar is one of my favorite bars on Royal Caribbean but is unfortunately being phased out on many ships. The elegant atmosphere, location on the Promenade, and the large offering of handcrafted cocktails make it a true delight.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

This bar offers a specialty martini and champagne based cocktail menu with many tasty options, especially the dessert cocktails. Unfortunately, some of the drinks are over the price limit of the drink package, but the good thing is that you will only have to pay the difference. During our first of many visits to the Champagne Bar, I ordered a Strawberry Cheesecake martini, and DB ordered this bar’s version of a sidecar.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Menu: Page 1

Don’t forget that you can also get a select offering of beer and coffee cocktails at Cafe Promenade and Sorrento’s while grabbing snacks at these venues also located on deck 5.

Oasis of the Seas Bars – Deck 6

Schooner Bar is the Royal Caribbean nautically themed bar that is a staple on most ships. This venue is home to many activities including trivia during the day as well as live piano music at night.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

This bar’s specialty menu offers classic and timeless cocktails, including DB’s favorite sidecar. During our visiting to the Schooner Bar on Oasis of the Seas, he ordered this famous sidecar of course, and I opted for a Tropical Old Fashion.

Menu: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4

Sabor Bar, located outside the restaurant, is a great spot to enjoy an afternoon on the Boardwalk or before heading to a show in the Aqua Theater. However, this bar does NOT offer any specialty cocktails. For a true Mexican cantina at sea, you will want to enjoy a margarita at the bar inside the restaurant, where you could choose to enjoy a drink (covered in the drink package) while ordering some a la carte appetizers as well.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

We opted to enjoy margaritas and some appetizers on a few different days of our cruise. Afterall, who wouldn’t want to grab a margarita here after spending a day in Cozumel? The food is pretty good too! DB enjoyed both the Simply Perfect and the Jalapeno- Cucumber margaritas, and I enjoyed the Sabor Grand margarita.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Menu: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3

While spending your day on the Boardwalk, there are also select beer offerings available at the Boardwalk Dog House to enjoy with your dogs.

Oasis of the Seas Bars – Deck 8

Vintages, Royal Caribbean’s wine bar, is located outside in Central Park on Oasis of the Seas. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of vino day or night. This quiet and less crowded venue offers a plethora of wine selections and a la carte tapas if you get hungry.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Neither of us are wine connoisseurs, so I opted for a glass of white wine covered in the drink package, and DB ordered a glass of pinot noir covered in the drink package. If you are a wine snob, then you might end up paying extra here as many of the selections are over the covered amount of the drink package.

Oasis of the Seas Bars Oasis of the Seas Bars

Trellis Bar is also located in Central Park on Oasis of the Seas.  This venue offers a relaxed, outdoor scene to grab a drink and enjoy the serenity of the Central Park neighborhood day or night. This venue offers full bar service but no specialty menu.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

We chose to enjoy a drink under the stars at the Trellis Bar during our drink around the ship. For those night owls, you will have to enjoy the Trellis Bar before 11pm as it closes by this time on most evenings.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Dazzles is a 2 story venue that hosts plenty of dancing and live music throughout the cruise. With plush seating, a center stage, dance floor, and bar, Dazzles is a great spot to spend your evenings enjoying a variety of musical genres performed by the house band. Don’t forget to grab a drink! Again, Dazzles offers a full bar and waitstaff but no specialty menu.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

The Park Cafe, located in Central Park, also offers select beers to enjoy during a casual lunch at this eatery.

Oasis of the Seas Bars – Deck 15

Pool Bar is located near the main pool on deck 15. This is the perfect spot to enjoy your favorite frozen cocktail during an afternoon in the sun. Of note, the pool bar is located near a smoking area.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Sand Bar offers the same experience as the Pool Bar but is conveniently located near the Beach Pool.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Of all the pool areas, this is the one we enjoyed the most. We spent our sea days lounging in the colorful chairs near the beach pool and enjoying frozen cocktails from the Sand Bar. On this particular occasion, I enjoyed my classic Miami Vice, and DB ordered a frozen mojito.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Oasis of the Seas Bars – Deck 16

Solarium Bar is your cocktail oasis while relaxing in the Solarium. This partially covered 2-story area offers all the benefits of the outdoor pool areas in a more relaxed environment with plenty of loungers and some of the best views on the ship.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Be sure to grab a drink from the Solarium Bar while enjoying your tranquil retreat.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

If you are looking for more outdoor bar options, deck 16 also offers the Sky Bar and Mast Bar. Both bars offer the standard Quenchers at Sea Menu.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

The Mast Bar had some of the most personable outdoor bar servers, but is located on the smoking side of the ship, so we did not spend much time here. Instead, we headed to the Sky Bar across the way for our frozen cocktails at sea.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Last but not least is the Wipe Out Bar. Located completely aft of the ship, this is a great location to enjoy a drink while watching the action on the Flowrider.

Oasis of the Seas BarsOasis of the Seas Bars

Or in our case, it is also a great spot to enjoy a morning mimosa while watching the wake views. The perfect ending to a great cruise and our drink around the ship on Oasis of the Seas.
