The Oasis of the Seas is the first ship in Royal Caribbean’s Oasis-Class line, and she certainly set the tone for all the ships that followed (and are yet to debut). Like her sister ships, she’s massive, being just slightly smaller than an aircraft carrier. As you might expect for such a large ship, there’s an awful lot to get excited about when you’re aboard the Oasis of the Seas.
For one, the Oasis of the Seas is divided into three distinct neighborhoods, with each offering up its own entertainment, dining and drinking options. Up on deck, you’ll find plenty of places to enjoy the sunshine or to take a dip. Those with a thirst for adventure will find plenty of amenities that have been targeted at thrill seekers, including a surfing simulator, a rock-climbing wall, and a zip line. Of course, those that prefer to relax while they’re cruising will find no shortage of ways to do so, especially when they pay a visit to one of the four cantilevered hot tubs!
So come take a tour of the Oasis of the Seas. Though some of its features may be familiar to those who have been aboard another of the Oasis-Class ships, it’s got a style all of its own. And, if you want to know what its like to travel in the utmost luxury aboard this ship, be sure to stay tuned for #38!
