Though nothing's set in stone, there's a chance that Oasis of the Seas will make a stop in Southampton this November before heading to Florida for its official debut. (Click here for our full news coverage!)

We want to know: If the ship does call on the U.K. port, what festivities should be planned? Vote in our poll -- choose all that apply -- and be sure to post your opinion below!

Even if there were no activities...I would be there just to see her

Infact a few of us from CC were already planning to do this..hotels/flights were being looked into.....until Oasis was taken off the Soton port schedule

I would most certainly love to have an onboard tour of the ship, if she comes to Southampton. I would go to Mayflower Park to see her anyway, but to get onboard would be a bonus.
