Hope that book put you to sleep for a few hours Paul! You WILL have a lot of celebrating to do once on board. The Oasis is just a 'tad' on the large size for my personal taste, but I have to admit the last few weeks I've been drawn to her like a magnet. And I'm wishing that I had listened to DH when we were aboard the FOS a couple of months ago, and booked her! I know that I will be on board her at least once to see this marvel, or her sister ship, sometime. I'm loving your live blog! Signed, a landlocked Mermaid.
