The Oasis Class seems less crowded to me than the Freedom Class although the Liberty Of The Seas is my personal favorite ship. I've spent a lot of time on that ship, so it biases my opinion a bit. The Radiance ships do have a large following among Crown & Anchor members. They are large ships but with a smaller passenger load than other ships of similar size, so you have lots of room. Look for one of the Radiance class that has had the Royal Advantage Enhancements which added some of the Oasis/Allure features and you'll have a happy medium for you and your friends.
