We did the Oasis a few years back ( kids were 11 and 14). They actually complained about the kids clubs and really did not like being there at all and would instead walk around the ship. They were looking forward to ice skating at sea only the rink was never really open for more than a few hours at odd times. They really do nickel and dime you with everything (a good cut of meat is an extra $15). To this day (13 and 16 now) they prefer Disney. To me they feel more comfortable and at home there. It isn't about a rated G environment either. If anything my kids feel more able to act their age and be seen as mature and responsible on board. I think people see Disney as being very sheltered for children and that parents choose Disney for that reason. (A friend of mine was actually shocked to hear we prefer Disney because he knows how not sheltered my kids are). The truth is my 16 year old can walk around all night, hang out with kids till 4 or 5 am and just have a good time enjoying his freedom. On Royal it was clear he was expected to be in bed and that it was time for adults to play.
