I just read the great news on the front page of Florida Today newspaper.  RCCL has just announced that it is basing one of the two largest ships in the world at Port Canaveral.  The Oasis will be offering seven-night Eastern & Western itineraries from Port Canaveral in the winter of 2016-2017.  This, of course, is the largest ship ever based at our port.  Ever since RCCL agreed to partner with Port Canaveral to build the new Cruise Terminal l, there has been speculation that an Oasis-class ship would be moved here.  The Oasis is replacing the Freedom of the Seas which has performed well here in Port Canaveral.  The Oasis, at full capacity carries 6,360.  It has a crew of 2,394.  The Freedom of the Seas at full capacity can carry 4,515.  This move will naturally raise Port Canaveral's passenger figures.  The Oasis is my favorite ship. The Freedom, by the way,  will move to Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale.)
