I do hope that this Oasis thing is a novelty/niche act
Funny you should say that - many in the travel industry are saying Oasis/Allure will be a niche market. People will do it once and then move on. Others don't want to feel like they are on the starship Enterprise with interactive screens everywhere (over 400 on the Oasis), crew with handheld card readers at every turn, HAL9000-esque TVs in your cabin, etc. It could very well be the perfect cruise for those who don't really like the idea of experiencing the ocean. They are even going to have salt water in the ocean pool, but fresh water in all the other pools.
