I've booked Allure of the Seas for Sept. 18, 2011. I've pretty much sailed exclusively with Carnival with one exception. I did sail on Adventure of the Seas a few years ago and felt that the service level overall was way below Carnivals. I'm willing to give RCI another chance mainly because I love the larger ships. Hopefully, things will be better this time and I will have another cruise line to plan my vacations with! I would love to hear others comments on the Oasis, since the Allure will be her sister ship.
