We have been on several cruises on Carnival, Princess and Royal Caribbean, this was the first time on the very large Oasis Class ships. I have wanted to try the Oasis since it was built. Now that I have done it, I prefer the regular sized ships a little better. All in all, this was a very good cruise. To be fair several people we met said they only sail on the Oasis or the Allure because they prefer this type of ship. We had a Central Park Balcony room and I felt like we we staying in a resort hotel that was near the ocean, and you had to walk a half block to get to the beach. Perhaps if we had an ocean view I would have felt differently. I did not always feel like I was on a cruise ship. Lots of variety of places to eat or things to do. I read other reviews that said that for as many people that were on the ship, there were very few lines. I did not find this to be true. If you eat at prime time, we found long lines, difficulty finding seats at the Windjammer Cafe, and long lines for things like the zipline etc. You can work around this, but it was not convienient for us.
