Review of Oasis Of The Seas deck 3 (Ice Rink-Cabins)
Opal Theater (complimentary, total capacity 2160 seats, main level 1380 seats) is the ship’s main show lounge for Broadway-style dance and music productions and aerial acrobatic performances in the evenings. The theater presents nightly 2 grand shows - early (at 8 pm) and late (at 10 pm) to match the assigned dining room sittings. Both are full-length production shows specially designed for the Oasis ship – with professional performances (singing, dancing, acting, live band music), excellent decors and lighting. Signature shows are “Cats” (musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber), “Blue Planet” (circus-style production with singing and dancing), the rotating Headliners (tribute band show), also popular game shows (like “Love and Marriage”). Opal Theatre has its own bar for refreshments. During the shows, waiters walk around and offer bar service prior to show. During the day, the theater functions as Cinema and also hosts enrichment lectures and bingo playing sessions. Royal Caribbean’s Snowball Jackpot Bingo offers generous payouts (final jackpots are in the several thousand dollars). Among the bingo prizes are also free cabin upgrades and even free cruises.
Conference Center (capacity 300 seats) consists of several meeting rooms divided by collapsible walls. Each of the rooms can be configured to suit specific group needs.
