      It is huge and looks absolutely amazing. One of the harbours had to extend at a cost of $75million just to allow space for Oasis to get in.

      If you do get to go take pics and share it with us!

      Wow, this is a very big ship! I love how they incorporated some greenery into its surroundings. And the golf court etc. I've been on one of Carnival's, but this is worth trying. Thanks for sharing.

      Voted up and useful.
