I think the Spirit class is just about the right size.

All the amenities of the larger Carnival ships (except no fish n chips) with about 700 less people.

I have not sailed on the Oasis...but from the very first designs looked like a huge mall to me. That is just the first impression I got.

And when my friends went on it (they had a wonderful time)...but their complaint was that you could see the Ocean AND it did not feel like you were on a ship. They always book an interior cabin. She said it did not feel crowded.

She also said she did not like the fact that she had to "schedule" the shows. (sadly one of the downsides to sailing with that many people)
She said she does not go on vacation to live by a "schedule".

And that the nickle and diming seemed worse to them than on Carnival, Princess or NCL.

Now having said all that, there are obviously enough cruisers who DO want that kind of experience.

It just isn't one that I want.

If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
