Holy moly! I know the camera angle favors the Oasis but it is certainly larger. I like the sleek look of the Dream though. Oasis looks boxy and clunky like a school bus. Doesn't mean I wouldn't hop aboard any time though!

considering Oasis carries something like 6,000 passengers that is to be expected I guess LOL..

Looks similar to a photo I took of the Miracle next to the Oasis when we were docked in St Martin, looked like the Miracle would of fit right inside!
That's NOT Photoshop

It's not a photoshop, but the angle of perspective does exaggerate the size difference somewhat.

I agree! While we haven't been on the Dream yet (week and a half!!!) we felt VERY crowded on the Magic in comparison to the Oasis. Obviously, not enough to defer us from sailing her sister, but you'll be pleasantly surprised that you don't "feel" that many more passengers on the Oasis class. So others can call it "monstrosity of the seas" but in my eyes it was the best vacation to date!!!! Can't wait to sail on that class again

DW and I have not felt crowded on Freedom class ships, just the Dream. In fact, this is the only ship we felt all venues/activities were crowded.

You would also feel crowded on the Royal Promenade, pools, WindJammer and elevators. On the Oasis, you schedule the show times because they can't fit everyone in the theater at one time. Nice ship but I wouldn't do it again. What they did excel at was boarding and debarkation. They got those 6,000+ passengers off that ship in a snap.

The Oasis is large compared to any other ship with the exception of The Allure. No phot shop or angle needed to show how ig it is.

I'm sure the Oasis and Allure are wonderful ships with something for everyone but a ship that size doesn't even interest me. Too many people and too many lines. I will stick with Carnival.

Oasis is simply fabulous with amazing shows. The size of the ship means you will never feel cramped!

I saw those two side by side in St Martin. Oasis is a huge square floating warehouse and I have no desire to go on that ship.
