There have been plenty of obsequious press reports about Royal Caribbean’s mammoth new Oasis of the Seas cruise ship, but not everyone is hopelessly in love.
Arthur Frommer has slammed the whole concept, Jim Walker at Cruise Law News has some pointed questions about security and pollution, and even some of the travel writers and bloggers now being feted on a special voyage for the press are not entirely smitten. Jason Cochran, while impressed by the ship, points out on WalletPop that “passengers who immerse themselves in this floating circus might as well not be at sea at all.”
I point this out for the sake of a little balance. In other words, just sayin’.
