Default So what about the blue hull???

Now that so many of you have seen the Oasis in person, what are your thoughts on the baby blue hull? I can barely tell it is blue in the pictures. Let's hear from you first hand viewers. Do you love it or hate it? Would you want them to paint their other ships the same livery? (oops... probably should have put this on the Oasis thread... sorry)

Did not notice this until you pointed it out and went back to an Oasis thread which showed a gigantic view of the bow and bridge area.
You are correct.

Without seeing it in person, it's hard for me to get a real flavor of
the overall effect.

I am waiting for your check to arrive so I can book a close-up view for DW and myself.

Thanks for your consideration in advance.

NP

Overall I give it a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. ( 10 being highest )

I had not noticed it was blue, it looked white. I guess I would have to see it next to another ship.

Wouldn't it be cool to see the ships lined up in order of size. It would really put into perspective the size of the Oasis compared to the other ships.

Thumbs up

I was there to see Oasis come in and I didn't even notice the hull was baby blue. If it is baby blue, it is such a light pastel that it is barely noticable unless someone directs your attention to it.

All I can say is that I thought Oasis was absolutely beautiful. She took my breath away.
