I, too, worry about the ships growing so large. I started crusing in '88 and the RCCL Song of America was considered a large ship for it's day. However, we were in port in St. Marteen last March with the Oasis. It is a beautiful ship! I was impressed. At his point I guess it's all about brand loyalty for me. I love the mini-suites on Princess and they are the best bargain at sea. I'll consider a mega-ship if I end up doing a last minute booking. That'a how I've ending up on Carnival four times. Last minute availability.
