I notice the Family staterooms are showing no availability though. I went on the Freedom 2nt Non-revenue 2nt cruise from Boston on May 19, 2006. It then had more non-revenue cruises as it worked its way to Miami. It would have been late May or early June when it started revenue cruises. Many schools would have been out for the summer. The Oasis is starting during a time when schools will be in session. It's also between two major holidays. The first week of December traditionally is a low time for cruises. Also the Carnival Dream arrives in New York November 12th and starts its Inaugural festivities and cruises. There's a lot going on with two new ships in the market.
