Worlds Largest Cruiseliner Sets Sail

Reminds me of those ships that transport live sheep through the Gulf and Arabian Sea although I doubt the smell could ever be the same.

Those were absolutely horrendous, you could smell them for miles off. They frequently pulled into Port Suez, pity they don't have an RSPCA.

Agreed. I'm sure there aren't enough lifeboats for all those passengers.

We are booked for the Fantasia next May booked by the other half anybody been on this floating hotel. Suit and tie after 1800hrs must be worn me being a shorts and t shirt type that should be fun.

Regarding the transport of live sheep 50,000 they carry a disgustng trade from the Australian sheep market. We import frozen NZ lamb why do we need live exports. The middle east slaughter houses have never changed since biblical days.

If the latter, you can read passenger reviews here. Here's a heavily abridged example you will love (link): :p

An experience - not again
With so many floors the lifts just cannot cope - they often do not stop on your floor... The restaurant service was poor to start - no time for coffee we were originally told at dinner the first night... Lights go up after one and a half hours to tell you to leave!! A glass of water was served HOT. Many meals for the table of 6 were completely missed - forgotten or brought out of sync with the other meals. Water had to be purchased at almost £2 per bottle. Tonic £2.80 - (Beer 2 bottles) £9.... The dress code of formal when at Sea - informal in-port did not apply. Smart jackets was the order every day, apart from two Gala nights - one night informal.... Overall - just about value for money - but would never set out to choose a large ship again.

To be fair, most reviews are highly complimentary but whatever you do, don't look at this website. Enjoy your trip.

Trivia corner.

The maiden voyage Master of Oasis of the Seas, Captain William Wright presents a video on 'hi fog' fixed fire-fighting installations that forms part of the Navy's '35' course. I thought I recognised his face (in other articles on the Oasis of the Seas.)

He is a Lt.Cdr Retd. USN. He also took Freedom Of The Seas on her maiden voyage.
 
I've actually been on board one of the American versions, when I was in Reykjavik. It was so large I felt disorientated. When I go cruising I go on smallish vessels and sit in a restaurant sharing a table with the same people all in evening dress. On these floatels the passengers queue up, sometimes for half an hour, like when I was at school and sit anywhere they can, clad in t shirts, etc. I spent 20 minutes just queing for coffee! The Sun Deck had two very large swimming pools and unbelieveably a huge screen for films. The ship I toured had a internal flood a few weeks later caused by their indoor fountains flooding! They had to evacuate the ship as it affected her stability. I would never choose to sail in one as they are too big, tooluxurious and I'm not convinced they are really seaworthy.
