Oasis of the Seas is the first Royal Caribbean cruise ship in the new Oasis class and is nearly double in size compared to the previous title-holding superliner. Weighing in at a commanding 220, 000 tons, the Oasis of the Seas hosts up to 5, 400 guests across 2, 700 staterooms and 16 decks. Its sister ship, Allure of the Seas, launches in December 2010 and is nearly identical to the Oasis of the Seas cruise ship. Many travel experts are already calling it the most innovative vessel at sea.
Reinventing the concept of the floating mega resort, Oasis of the Seas presents all the public areas as a series of seven "neighborhoods", each with a unique lifestyle theme and related entertainment amenities. Cruise critics and savvy travelers alike are lining up for Oasis of the Seas cruises – check out some breathtaking photos and artistic renderings of these dynamic spaces. The expansive open-air Central Park is the heart of it all. Blooming trees, gardens, and lawns create a natural environment for relaxing or meeting other guests. Street performers, shops, bars, and restaurants (including alfresco dining) are also integrated into Central Park. The Boardwalk, inspired by England's charming harbor villages and the seaside amusement parks of New York's Coney Island, is sure to spark a sense of nostalgia. You'll also find plenty of thrills on Oasis of the Seas cruises – including towering rock-climbing walls and a sky-scraping zip line ride.
Perhaps the most striking attraction on Oasis of the Seas is the AquaTheater – a revolutionary outdoor venue for everything from recreational swimming and scuba lessons to fountain shows and high-diving performances. Plus, dont miss the incredible Pool & Sports Zone – complete with a large mini-golf course, 2 surfing wave pools, basketball/volleyball courts, and much more! There's also an enhanced Royal Promenade connecting the neighborhoods and stateroom areas. Simply put, the Oasis of the Seas cruise ship has redefined cruising.RECREATION HIGHLIGHTS:
