Oasis of the Seas
About Royal caribbean International
Royal Caribbean International is a brand with an incredible history and unlimited potential. The cruise line not only sets new standards by the size of the ships, but also by its degree of innovation. Especially the entertainment programm on their vessels is a new invention. The ships are convincing due to a variety of sport offers and leisure activities for every age group. Particularly the outdoor area offers great experiences with ice rinks or zip lines. However not only the big vessels, but also the smaller ones offer plenty options to have fun in a relaxed atmosphere. In the different restaurants you expect tasty dishes combined with an attentive service. On board, all age groups feel at home. Due to the company's heritage a basic knowledge in English is recommended. Another thing to take into considerations is that the additional costs are higher than on German ships.
The Oasis of the Seas, the first ship of the "Oasis" class, was put into service in December 2009 and most recently extensively modernized in 2014. The 16 decks of the ship can comfortably accommodate up to 5400 guests (with double occupancy). In the winter months, the ship cruises in the beautiful areas of the Caribbean Sea, while in the summer months the western Mediterranean lures. In the variously designed areas of the ship, the so-called Neighborhoods, there is a huge leisure and entertainment offer. Wellness and sports facilities are also very important on board, so that the right cruise for every guest is possible. The "Central Park" with more than 12,000 plants and the "Royal Promenade" modeled on an English seaside resort with its carousel and snack stalls make the Oasis of the Seas an ideal mix of floating city and amusement park.
