^If you had the money, would you live on The World
? It sounds like they would have sufficient facilities for you to still run TPR while living on the ship.
I would never. Here is why, 1. You have to buy the room which is your own house so you would basically never go on any other ship. 2. It seems a little boring to me as there's no real appeal to it besides the places it goes to. 3. I love the cruising atmosphere and all the activities you can do aboard a real cruise ship. 4. They even say it's a ghost town sometimes and I would hate that!
I also think this is a great thread as I absolutely love cruises! I am a huge RCCL fanatic and I only want to go on their ships although I might give the Epic a try in the future when I'm on my own. So far I have been on the Disney Wonder, Navigator of the Seas, & Freedom of the Seas and we LOVED all of them although the RCCL one's were our favorite. Here's my experiences.
A great ship and at the time I was quite young, about 9 or 10 and I thought it was awesome! There private island was really nice as far as I can remember and had the characters walking around in special costumes. I have a picture of Mickey and myself with the ship in the background! I think my absolute two favorite things on the ship were the slide and the dining room that changed colors throughout the night.
Navigator of the Seas:
A spectacular ship. I was about 10 at the time and we were on the ship when it was new. When I stepped on board I couldn't believe my eyes and at that time I think I began to realize I was a cruise ship lover. I can't explain in words how I felt all week long on the ship and I honestly did not want to get off in the end. RCCL also runs an awesome program for kids. I went every day and it was so much fun! I got to meet new friends and one night I remember we won a "challenge" and we got to push one of the "teachers" in the pool late a night :-p I loved everything and I don't have anything negative to say about the ship.
Freedom of the Seas:
Now I was older when we went on this ship back in 2006 when it was brand new. I knew a lot about this ship as I had been following the ship forever! This ship was probably the best you could go on before Oasis was introduced. I had a blast on this one and I was never board. The flowriders were great and I loved the Aqua Zone! I am still not an "adult" but I got to see the adult only whirlpools "hanging" over the ship and I wanted to go in so bad as they looked awesome! Great service overall and was very clean.
I defiantly recommend going on a larger ship though. If you have the money to even go on a ship I would save up even more to go on a larger one because 1. You will feel the ship rocking way less. 2. There are more activities ex. RCCL's larger ships have the flowriders, Aqua Zone, etc... I also disagree to all the people out there who say they don't want to go on large ships because there are too many people. Here is the simple thing to understand, they have more rooms yeah, and they ALSO have more space! I never had a problem on Freedom of the Seas with it being "crowded."
I truly love cruising and if the fear of sinking or something is stopping you from making a reservation then do not let it! Trust me you will NOT sink! I am a nervous wreck a lot of the time but since I have been on one I have no fear of them. If you go on Oasis of the Seas you will most likely not feel the waves at all as there has been reports that when it was coming to North America through a winter storm with 30 foot swells (that only happens in the winter in the North Atlantic ocean) workers could barely feel a thing!
Also if anyone is lucky enough to go on Oasis tell us all about it! My mom also loves cruises and RCCL and is saving up to go on it for next year!
