Default Oasis/Allure?

I found a perfect sailing date for me on both ships, so now i'm stuck between choosing. I understand that they are sister ships and very identical but does anyone like one over the other? I would love to hear everyone's opinion

I have only sailed Allure; I picked it over Oasis for these reasons;
1. I liked the shows on Allure
2. Rita's cantina verses SeaFood Shack
3. Sailing on Sunday verses Saturday

Thats it.

Thanks for the reply. I'm actually leaning more to the Oasis though because it sails on Saturday, so that we don't have to rush to get home in case of traffic issues.

Did you like one ship better than the other?

I have sailed on both the Oasis and the Allure. Both ships are very nice and I think you would enjoy both. I personally like the Allure the best. If you have children then the Allure is the one for you. It has the Dreamworks characters on it whereas the Oasis does not. That is the only reason why I pick the Allure over the Oasis. Both ships are fun.

I liked them both. The shows are different, but there is a lot of fun to be had on those amazing ships.

Thanks for all the reply's everyone. I ended up choosing the Oasis because I liked sailing on a Saturday better, and I wanted to do western caribbean this time and the Oasis had a date for that which would work better for me.

Just back from Allure today. Although weather did not cooperate to the fullest, we still had an amazing time. We did Oasis last year and I personally liked it better, but only for very minor reasons. I am very confident you will have an excellent time.

I have sailed Allure to the Eastern last year. Loved the ship; smooth sailing and nice weather. If you have any questions about Allure; I will try and answer
