Default RCCL Announces Fourth Oasis-class To Be Built

This morning at the keel laying for the 3rd Oasis-class vessel, RCCL announced they will be building the fourth ship that was an option on the contract.

So what does this mean? Well, the safe bet is that at least one of the four giant ships will be headed to the Asian market. However there are still rumors about Port Canaveral getting one, and that port is expanding their facilities 'for something'. Perhaps Port Everglades will lose one to Port Canaveral.

I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and sail an Oasis class ship. I sailed on Freedom OTS and Voyager and I wasn't overly impressed. Freedom was just a larger Voyager class ship. However, Oasis is popular and I need to put my prejudice aside and see why it is so popular.

One good thing about Port Canaveral, to us Minnesotans, is that airfare is much less expensive than Fort Lauderdale or Miami. I was happily shocked when I booked airfare for our,upcoming, somewhat last minute, cruise on Carnival Liberty. It was $260/pp. Half the cost of airfare to Miami. Even with a $32, one way, car rental and $37 cruise line post-cruise transfer, it was a lot less.

I do see Royal Caribbean taking one of the Oasis class ships to Asia. They like big and with the infrastructure upgrades in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore, it seems like a logical choice. Only time will tell if it is a profitable one.

Take care,
Mike

Yep Mike,
I think you will have to bite the bullet and find out, I think you may be pleasantly surprised?? I just wish they could add more ports to their routes, rather than the same old ones that we've all been to a few times over...It is still a wonderful cruise experience, I would go again for sure.

I will sail that class ship with no problem. I don't know if I'm interested in the Quantum class; but Allure was great; so when the other two show up; I will be ready.

The thing about the Oasis-class ships is that it's more about the ship than is it about the ports. In other words, the ship is the destination.

We found the ship to be very nice with alot of amenities so we were never bored. However, because they're trying to feed upwards of 6000 people in a 4 hour period, we did find the food in the main dining room to be okay, but not up to the quality of old or to that of their smaller ships. Tough to maintain quality when they're dealing with that kind of quantity. Don't think anyplace else in the world could match it. But we did find the specialty restaurants to be very good and thoroughly enjoyed them. We really liked the shows.

But on the other hand, while these ships are wonderful for families, for us, being a senior couple and enjoying a more relaxed and upscale cruise, we found the Oasis-class to be too large. We missed the more intimate and personal experience we get on the smaller ships. We really like the Radiance-class ships more than any of these ultra-mega ships. We are anxious to see the Quantum-class so we can compare them to others, but then again, we always enjoy the new ships no matter the size or the cruise line.

That's the good thing about cruising is trying them all until you find one that fits you and we'll continue to try them.

Mike> What airport do you fly into for Port Canaveral? The closest I could book for Carnival Freedom a couple of years back was Orlando-Sanford.

And the car rental places at Port Canaveral post-cruise were awful. It was like it was a huge surprise to Budget that people might actually want to rent a car after that big white thing pulled into port... I was lucky to get in line first, and got out fast, but others in our extended group waited HOURS for a car they had reserved months in advance. No cars in the lot at all, and a huge lineup.

We've sailed out of Port Canaveral on a few occasions. The closet airport is Orlando and we've always rented a car. We've paid as little as $35 and the max was $50 each way. Never had a problem. We're members of their member's club and have always been able to walk up, get our car, and gotten on our way within a few minutes - never had any problems. I drop the wife off at the pier along with the luggage, drive over to the car rental office, dropped off the car, hopped on their free shuttle, and gotten back to the pier fairly quickly. When we arrive back at the pier, I repeat the process, and again, never had any problems. At times the wait can be a little longer than normal because of all the cruise passengers doing the same thing, but we're usually not in a hurry and are among the last ones off the ship, so we don't encounter long wait times. But it does pay to join the car rental's club as it makes it much quicker and easier.

Try a shuttle next time, Cocobeach shuttle, or Travelynx.

I booked Delta to Orlando (MCO). The one way car rental was with Avis and $31. The negative was that the least expensive rental from the port to MCO was $70. They get you on the return. This is why I booked cruise transfers for the return to MCO. It was $5 more, per person, and it was worth it since we were going directly to the airport any way.

We are flying in the day before and did a Priceline hotel and got the Four Points Sheraton, Cocoa Beach for $60/night. We get in early so we'll be able to lay on the beach for a couple of hours.

As Pete said; It does help to be part of a rental car loyalty program. It makes things faster when doing a pickup, from a major location, but the days of "GREAT" deals are long gone. In the 90's and early 2000's Hertz, Avis, National all had some nice discounts but now they are relatively the same as you can get online without the loyalty club discount. The best thing with a car rental loyalty club is that you "usually" can bypass the rental counter and just get your car and go.

Doing the boards over the years I've seen many people who think Orlando is on the ocean and right by Port Canaveral. They get a little freaked out when they find out it's an hour or more away from Orlando to Port Canaveral.

Take care,
Mike

I got a great deal on Hotwire on my last car rental in January. A minivan was $500 for the week pretty much from everyone. Got a Chrysler Town & Country for $200 for the week, turned out to be Hertz MIA Airport.

Mousesavers.com or Orlando Magicard also have some good coupon codes for Florida car rentals, you just have to be patient and try them all. Best deal from them on a minivan was $249

From my area Orlando flights are way cheaper through Allegiant (and others) flying into Sanford.

I used Travelynx van service. They charged $275 round trip for 11 of us. They stopped at a Target so the girls could load up on supplies before getting to port. Picked us up at entrance to Hyatt Hotel at airport.

Pete, since your in the travel business and are considered a senior (over 60), what is you and your wife's favorite cruise line? I assume you have sailed on more than four cruise lines.

We've been on 11 cruise lines in different parts of the world and our all-time favorite so far has been the Paul Gauguin in Tahiti. Absolutely wonderful! Everything is included in the price, including all alcohol, specialty restaurant, and gratuities. Service was fantastic and the food was awesome! Not to mention how incredible Tahiti was.

However, for the mass market cruise lines, our favorite is Celebrity followed closing behind by Holland America. Their demographic is basically an older crowd and for those who want a more sedate upscale experience. And when we cruise, as with most people, we become foodies, so we really enjoy good food.

Next on our list is Azamara because we heard from many people while on our Oceania cruise they prefer Azamara over Oceania. Plus, we've heard from all of our clients who have cruised Azamara that they offer amazing service and food.

Now with all that said, according to our clients, the best is Crystal. However, they are a luxury cruise line and above our budget, so I doubt will ever get the opportunity. But if you want the best, they are arguably at the top of the list, following very closely by Silversea and Regent Seven Seas.

Pete

Thanks for the info. I have only been on Royal; but have booked NCL for next year. My buddy who's a travel agent keeps bugging me to go on Celebrity; but I have to wear suit and tie to work; so the feeling of dressing up on vacation has left me. I liked wearing a tux when I was younger but not now. So for now I will stay will the mass cruise lines and keep it casual.

I will admit that while I like NCL, it's not one of our favorites. We like better food that what they have to offer.

But as with anything else about cruising, food is always very subjective.

As I say, what what person loves, another will hate. And I have clients that say NCL has the best food, while others say it's not good at all.

I don't like to wear suits, so when I go on Celebrity or Holland and I don't want to pack the extra clothes or weight, I'll usually just take a tie to wear, but no jacket. Hasn't been a problem yet.

Besides, if you don't want to wear a suit, then the two nights they'll have formal nights, you can always do the specialty restaurants, which are awesome, or the buffet, which is very good.

I have to echo Azamara over Oceania. I've sailed both and Azamara wins hands down. We sailed Azamara Journey just a few months after RCCL launched Azamara. We did a 14 day, South America, cruise. When we boarded we notices A LOT of crew coming on board. We found out later that the previous 18 day cruise from Florida to Sao Paulo was not very good and a new Hotel Director, Food and Beverage Manager, Head Housekeeper and a number of other staff had come on board for our cruise. Everyone we talked with, from the previous cruise, said that everything turned around overnight. The food was better, service had vastly improved and the "mood" of the crew was much happier. Cleaning house does help and we had the best cruise yet. We sailed Azamara Quest, two years ago, and we were very happy to find that the standards had not slipped and in the areas of food and amenities, they had improved.

We had sailed Oceania a year before in the Med and while it was good it was very unmemorable. Other than the ports I have no real "memory" of the food, service or life on board. That means it was OK but not worth the extra money we paid.

It was the same when we sailed Radisson (now Regent). I was expecting a phenomenal cruise and was delivered an OK cruise. It was nice but I sure didn't get value for my money. I have had better service and food on Celebrity, Azamara and NCL.

The sad thing is that we used to say Celebrity was our favorite cruise line but two mediocre sailings on Century and, last years, sailing on Millennium in Asia have put Celebrity about number 4 or 5 on our list of favorites.

At this time I would put Azamara as number one, NCL (other than Epic) as number two and Carnival number three. NCL and Carnival give you the best "bang for the buck". I don't even bother with luxury lines anymore because, unless you always book suites on mass market lines, the luxury lines aren't delivering, in my opinion, the value for the money. We often book suites and understand what that level of service should be and Radisson didn't measure up. I understand that my opinions on Oceania and Radisson/Regent are over five years old and things have changed but they only have one time to make a first impression and, for the money, I won't be giving them a second chance, any time soon.

Take care,
Mike

Mike you mention NCL as a good line excerpt Epic; please expand this conversation. Epic looks to have great shows, great water park; nice specialty restaurants.

The Norwegian Epic seems to be evoke definite opinions among NCL fans. When I was on the Getaway inaugural in February I met a Miami man who had given up on cruising with NCL solely because of the Epic - and he was a platinum Latitudes member. He said the Epic was too crowded and the public areas small and cluttered, and he felt closed in and detached from the sea. The Getaway really impressed him and he said "I'm back with them again."

I just got off Epic this past January, and found it to be mostly a positive experience. Better overall cruise compared to Carnival Freedom and Dream, and NCL Pearl as well.

We want to try RCCL next... but if NCL has a "Kids Sail Free" promo again this winter, we might have to stay with them.

Timmy,

I have to say that my opinion of Epic is based more on emotion, personal taste and the design of the ship.

Epic has some of THE BEST dining and entertainment options at sea. The problem for me, and what I have a hard time overcoming, was the design of the ship. The area on Deck 6, outside O'Sheehan's was a choke point for traffic, especially before or after shows. The pool deck is poorly designed and is too crowded. How they implemented the water slides left large areas of poorly used space. The cabin sizes are smaller than on Jewel class ships. The "wave design" gives me a claustrophobic feeling. The cabins have MANY cubby holes for storage but you spend two days of your cruise trying to find them. The cabin I cruised in was classified as a "Large Balcony Cabin". Now that cabin is a Mini-suite. If you have booked mini-suites on other NCL ships you will be in for a disappointment in the size of these cabins. The open bathroom design is the worst and you see it was not repeated on Getaway or Breakaway. Last but not least, is the look of the ship. It's just butt ugly. The Frankenstein Front, as I call it, and what houses "The Haven" area of the ship just makes the whole vessel look like a joke.

That's why I am eager to sail on Getaway and Breakaway. I think they took the good of the Epic and incorporated it with the good of the Jewel class and got it right.

Remember: This is my opinion and others may have a complete opposite feeling. Neither are wrong.

Take care,
Mike

Mike, thanks for all that info. I have not cruised NCL yet; however, I am booked on B2B on the Jade next May for my wife's retirement. Since we have not cruised them; I only have these forums to read what people say about NCL. We booked an aft penthouse, and that's because of what people have said about aft balcony cabins. We have never sailed in aft cabin before. We have always been in mid ship suites; and we have only been on Royal Caribbean. The reason I was interested in comments about Epic; I was thinking of booking it for my Europe cruise next year; but, they don't visit any place I haven't already cruised to; and like you mentioned the ship is ugly; really ugly. My wife and I took kids/grandkids on Freedom of the Seas; and I think we will take them on NCL Getaway or Breakaway. I think the kids will find enough fun at water park and kids activities to make it an interesting cruise. When you travel with 12 in your group; it takes a lot of planning. Again, thanks for the info.

The aft penthouse on Norwegian Jewel was one of our favorite suites we've ever had. It isn't as large as a Royal Caribbean Grand Suite but the location was wonderful. It isn't as opulent as a Celebrity Royal Suite and it has most of Celebity's Sky Suites beaten hands down. It also FAR EXCEEDS any of Carnival's suites where you basically get a larger, better furnished cabin. I loved the "coffee machine" in the NCL suites, that made espresso, latte and regular coffee at the touch of a button.

The Jewel, Jade, Gem, Pearl, NCL ships are some of my favorites. The Dawn class is also nice but I have a personal problem where I always end up getting lost because of the "dead end" decks.

I think you will enjoy the suite and the Jade. I do encourage you to add $100 - $200 to your cruise budget to try the specialty restaurants. Le Bistro, Cagney's and Moderno are all excellent. Tepanyaki is also a fun evening. The only restaurants I'm not a big fan of are the Italian restaurants on NCL and I believe that is, overall, because of personal taste rather than bad food. Except on Epic. The pasta was dreadfully overcooked.

Enjoy!!! It will be a nice retirement present for your wife.

Take care,
Mike

Mike. Thanks again for the added info. We are looking forward to aft penthouse. We do have money in budget for specialty dining. Our two adult kids will be joining us for second half of cruise. We may do specialty dining with them. Take care.
