In principle, I am not against size, Pumpkins. In fact, when it comes to diamonds, bank accounts and certain members, I encourage it. Beyond that, things can get a bit tacky. With hair, platform shoes or gold brocade — one can overdo it. Dare I say it, even a diamond can look like itâ€™s trying too hard.
Not so with ships. For some, a ginormous ship spells: Oh! Eh! Bliss! Royal Caribbeanâ€™s Oasis is so large, it could probably even accommodate a travel journalistâ€™s ego. A total of 5,400 people will be spread over 16 decks and floated out to sea. Oh joy. Thereâ€™s a full size carousel, a replica of Central Park and a bloody ingenious bar which facilitates getting high by rising up three decks as you tipple. Thereâ€™s an aqua theatre, a full sports zone, shopping & dining galore â€“ in short, an orgy of cruising delights for the masses.
I donâ€™t know why we donâ€™t just put little fins on an island and drag it around the Caribbean.
