The giant awaits – first look at Oasis of the Seas

My pal Michele and I got up real early to catch a JetBlue¬†flight to Fort Lauderdale at 6 a.m.. But that’s the kind of sacrifice you make to be among the first to get on the newest world’s larges cruise ship.

Oasis of the Seas is five times the size of the Titanic, a whopping three football fields in length. And the Royal Caribbean ship will carry more than 6,200 passengers (when you include families with kids, which will no doubt be attracted by features that include an onboard amusement park).

Heck, I’m really looking forward to trying the onboard merry-go-round myself and maybe the zipline across the top deck too (if I can get up the courage).

The ship has a Central Park with grass and trees, and I expect my credit cards to start buzzing in the Royal Promenade, outfitted with a bunch of shops.

We’ll be boarding with other invitees on the pre-inagural, two-day sailing to nowhere this afternoon. So stay tuned for reports.
