The 225,282-ton, 5,400-passenger cruise ship Oasis of the Seas is one of the largest cruise liners in the world. Oasis has been the most anticipated newbuild since Cunard's Queen Mary 2. Her innovations, such as the first-ever Boardwalk and Central Park at sea, are already legendary. Innovations on Oasis of the Seas are, by no means, limited to passenger-friendly advances. Royal Caribbean also introduced a number of new technical and environmental tools which allow the cruise to be more efficient and eco-responsible.

Oasis Of The Seas wiki

  • Oasis of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's first Oasis-class vessel, with younger and also "so very big" sisters Allure, Harmony and Symphony.
  • Oasis-class ships are the biggest cruise vessels in the world, and the Oasis happened to be the smallest one - although with just 50 millimeters (about 2 inches) shorter than Allure. There was a competition for proposing the best name for the hulls of both vessels. The sister hulls were named at a dual ceremony in May 2008.
  • The Oasis cruise ship was completed on the 28th of October, 2009 by STX Europe (Finland), a division of the South Korean multinational STX shipbuilding corporation. At her arrival in the US, right before she docked at her home port Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale), the Oasis ship had to pass under the Danish bridge Great Belt Fixed Link. This was challenging as the bridge is 65 m (213 ft) higher than the sea level while the Oasis's highest point is normally 72 m (236 ft) over sea level. But the ship made it - as she has telescoping funnels. It wasn't easy though, there were only 0,6 m (only 2 ft) to spare when she was sailing under the bridge!
  • The cruise ship has the impressive number of all seven godmothers. Each of the "godladies" symbolized one of the ship's 7 different neighbourhoods. The special ceremony took place at Port Everglade, and on the 5th of December, Oasis set sail on her maiden voyage to the Eastern Caribbean.
  • Oasis-class ships are the world's first passenger vessels with a DNV Green Passport. This is of general importance for the Clean Ship Design certificate, which is not compulsory, but shows a greater environmental commitment of the ship owner / operator.
  • On November 4, 2016, the world's 3 largest cruise ships - Harmony, Allure and Oasis - convened off the Florida's coast. The unique event was live streamed officially by RCI, starting at approx 5 pm EST. The meeting at open sea coincided with the Harmony's arrival at Port Everglades (her US homeport), finishing a 13-night Transatlantic repositioning cruise from Barcelona to Florida (Oct 23 - Nov 5).
