This time of year it’s also known as The Floating NoroVirus...

That vessel doesn't look sea worthy to me. I suppose it is but just doesn't to me.

Same here Robert. It looks like it is about ready, any time, to fall over. I wonder how many tons of concrete ballast is in the bottom of that thing?


RE: The Oasis of the Seas leaving Port Canaveral.




I have been in the port in my boat when it goes by and the water movement created by the displacement of the hull is significant. The first time I experienced the flow, it took me a while to figure out what was going on.

I've never been on a cruise and do have some interest but it always looks to me that it's like spending a week at the mall. Too much going on and crowded. No?

We have done both, they each have there pluses. If you want a more intimate experience, try river cruising, ~ 200 guests on a much small ship. We have done Viking and love it. There are also small ocean cruises that you might like more, but the larger ships are normally less expensive.

It really does look quite top heavy! I wonder how it would do in really rough seas with monster waves??? Of course those cruise ships have been sailing for many years safely so far.

I don't think I would do good in an upper cabin. Wow.

Sunday will be our second time sailing on the Oasis. The ship is so big and wide you can hardly feel it moving. Yes there are a lot of people on the ship but it doesn't seem that crowded. Yes there are a lot of daily activities going on but you pick-and-choose what you want to do or do nothing. It is very relaxing on days at sea.

Central Park and Boardwalk on the ship each cover half the boat length and are awesome.

We like to sail because you go to interesting Islands, you don't have to worry where you will eat, there is great entertainment and they have award winning chefs so the meals are like eating at a very expensive restaurant. The price is excellent considering what you get.

The thought of island hopping is the most attractive to me. We will have to get to doing it soon. I watched a homemade tour of this ship on Youtube. Just a guy with some camera and editing skills that was really fascinating and had me searching dates.

Thanks for the thoughtful reply!

Here is a link to my Facebook album of our cruise for anyone that might be interested.
