Where the heck would it go? They are too large for most ports. It blows my mind they can secure the kind of financing to develop and build ships this often.They're just going to anchor it off the Greek isles and tender people on and off every week.

A third Oasis class ship would be a perfect fit for Port Canaveral. Royal has always put one of their larger ships there and has done well. It could alternate Eastern/Western and visit the same ports as Allure/Oasis.Yeah... I tend to agree with this.
I have read that Port Canaveral is deepening their channel in hopes of getting an Oasis class ship. It would tie in well with folks wishing to add on to their Disney/Univeral vacations.
Plus - its a 3 hour closer drive for me!!!
I would love to see an Oasis class ship in Europe, but I don't know how many ports could handle it. The larger Italian and Spanish ones could. My absolute ideal situation would be having an Oasis class doing 14 night cruises out of Southampton. That currently isn't possible as the swinging ground is too small for a ship that long.I was thinking the same thing when I first read this story, except that I'm certain she would stay in the Western Mediterranean. Most of those ports are already deep enough to handle a ship of her size, and Villefranche is a tendered port for all ships.
Royal caribbean didn't even have an option for a third vessel in the initial contract did they?I was surprised when Royal Caribbean said that they weren't interested in any additional Oasis class vessels. I think at the time they didn't know how successful the ships would be. I'm excited to see what this new ship will offer. And I'm glad that this revolutionary design has been a great success!
Seems like the Oasis-twins are doing better than rci anticipated!
Maybe it will be for the growing Asian cruise market and based in Singapore. Could be the floating equivalent of an A380.The A380 is an awesome aircraft to travel on...... and so is the Oasis class (from everything I've read)!!
Very interesting...Oasis...Allure.....Yea, it is interesting. There will be so much time between ships, it'll probably be a second generation Oasis Class with subtle differences....like how Vision and Voyager Classes have dfferent generation designs.
