This Ship Changed Cruising Forever!

RCCL's The Oasis changed cruising forever.  Not just because of its size but also for all the new features that it introduced. 

 

Here's a link to the article, which also has lots of photos.  If you haven't been on this ship or her sister ship, The Allure, they are fun to see.  Many cruisers may not be comfortable on such a large ship but she and The Allure have a lot of amenitiesto offer. 

 

I will take an Inspection Tour with Lunch of The Oasis this Sunday.  Hope to take some photos if I can.

It's lovely, but I'm happy with the smaller ship's.

Aren't we lucky to still have the choice to take a cruise on a small or a mega ship?  I like both sizes for different reasons.

Yes with so many different cruiseline's, sizes of ships and amenities, there's something for every budget, lifestyle and age to enjoy.

My sister has been on both of these ships and swears she'll not sail anything else (or at least less). If RCCL builds a bigger one I'm sure she'll give it a try.

At what point does the line blur beyond recognition between a cruise vacation and a land vacation?

I absolutely agree.  Although The Oasis is my favorite ship, I am sailing on the Rotterdam, a mid-sized ship in August.  My previous cruise was on the ms. Koningsdam a newer HAL mid-sized ship larger, though, than the ms. Rotterdam.  I love river cruises too and had fun on a paddle wheeler last fall.  I enjoy all sizes of ships.

I totally agree.... I have not sailed on one of these ships but Im thinking it wouldn't even feel as if I was on a ship.  Just a big building....

A big building and amusement park all in one space.... I think it would lose the feeling of cruising to be on a ship like that. The smaller ships with a couple of waterslides, a MDR or 2 plus the Lido deck for meals, a steak house and just a few shops seems more like cruising to me.
