How large is the RC ship in comparison to the Disney Dream? I am wondering how much walking as compared to other ships.

The Disney Dream is 1,115 ft long.

The Oasis of the Seas is 1,186.5 ft long

Sounds pretty similar, but i don't know how that translates into actual deck length that you have to walk.

The Oasis is huge and broken down into several segments including the Royal Promenade (deck 5), Central Park (8) and the Boardwalk (6) areas - as well as the pools deck (15).

Here's a cutaway map of the ship ...

Any idea of when the link to check the reservation will be working? At the moment, the one for booking transfers is working, but not the one to check on cabin and payment status.

i'm on deck 9 - there was only one room i could find that was still available (in my category) that had the bed by the closet (rather than the verandah)...i prefer to have the sofa by the verandah so that dictated the room...
hopefully, i'm correct in thinking the room i picked actually does have the bed by the closet...
if it ends up i was wrong, it's not a disaster....all rooms are fine as long as i'm on this cruise!!!!!!!

I hope this works out for you. How can you tell the configuration of a room? I have not really thought about it. Are there advantages to the type you like?

most people prefer the other configuration - with the bed by the verandah - as it gives you more room to get into the closet, especially if you're more than one person in a room...

DD prefers it that way - she just got off the radiance yesterday where she had the bed by the verandah and much prefers that configuration..

but i prefer having the sofa by the verandah (bed by the closet)....and i'm going to be on the cruise by myself, so i don't have to worry about getting into the closet with two people...(some people complain about it being difficult to get into the closet when the bed is there)..

as to how you can figure it out...that's a hot topic on cruise critic....
actually, i called RCCL and asked and the guy claimed they don't even know, but if i really want to find out, he would check for me and get back to me in a day or two (he claimed that's how long it takes to find out )..

i didn't do that, but instead searched on cruise critic....
it's the most common question on the RCCL board there - what's the configuration of room XXXX.......it took a while, but i finally found one room in my category that was still open on the cruise that seems to have that configuration...

as i said, i don't think it's a deal breaker....i'd be happy with the other configuration too...but if it turns out this way, i'll be even happier!

this is sort of related, sort of unrelated to the oasis cruise - i spoke with DD for an hour this morning....she's in vancouver, just off the radiance of the seas after her southbound 7 night alaska cruise from seward to vancouver...

this was her first non-DCL cruise and she said it was FANTASTIC!!!!
she thought RCCL was wonderful.....the only thing she didn't like was the food in the main dining room, but after the first night, she ate in the windjammer (the pool deck buffet restaurant - like cabanas) where she said the food selection for vegetarians was excellent..

she said the cruise was like being in summer camp....lots to do at any time of day (when she wasn't in port on her alaska excursions)..

she was really really impressed by everything about the cruise - the crew, the organization....
RCCL gets bad press about nickel and diming, but she said that she had a case of water left over at the end (she had pre-ordered two cases), and so she was credited back for the case of water she didn't use..

also, her husband wasn't able to go on one of the shore excursions as he was feeling very ill....it was one of the very expensive whale watching excusions (DD went by herself and said it was the most incredible excursion ever)...anyway, RCCL credited them the $170 for his excursion....
i'm not sure DCL would ever do that....

and she said the activities were so much fun...and the cruise director and all the crew were amazing...even the captain got into it (she has lots of stories about the captain)...

they were just pleased with every aspect of the cruise - their room, the service, the activities, the entertainment, everything about RCCL....

so it just adds to my anticipation!!! can't wait for Discruise 1.0!!! how many days to go??????
