Default 'That's a might big ship!'

The biggest cruise ship ever built - Oasis of the Seas gets set for her debut as the latest in Cruise ship style!!

I've never been on a cruise but taking a trip on a ship like that must be some experience!

They should make cruise ships to look like the Enterprise.

Personally cruise ships in general scare the daylights out of me, this one even more so.

Yes its a damn big ship. But really I see it being little different than going to a nice resort.

With the exception of sailing ships, I get really nervous with ships that have so much crap high above the waterline when compared to what's below the waterline. Think a few years ago there was an incident here in the Pacific NW where something happened to the a cruise ship's auto pilot and the ship suddenly turned sharper than it should have, not that you can comfortably turn those ships that much to begin with, and people all over were knocked off their feet. Kind of what happens with ship that have such a high CG.

I have not doubt such ships can be operated safely, but I just don't care for the boundaries within which they can be safely operated.
