In summer 2019, the ship is homeported in Barcelona for Western Mediterranean roundtrips (first time since 2014). The 7-day itineraries visit Palma de Mallorca, Marseille, Florence, Civitavecchia-Rome and Naples.

In 2020 (May 6 through October 25), Oasis OTS was to be homeported in NYC (Port Cape Liberty, Bayonne New Jersey), starting turnaround operations in May 2020. Through 2020 summer, Oasis had planned 7-day Florida-Bahamas itineraries visiting Port Canaveral, Nassau, and CocoCay Island. For August 1 (2020) was scheduled a special 8-day itinerary also visiting Miami.

From NYC were scheduled Canada and New England roundtrips - starting June 21 with a 6-day voyage to Portland ME, St John NB, and Halifax NS. The liner had to return to Florida on November 4, 2020.

Oasis Of The Seas Wiki

Oasis OTS is Royal Caribbean's first Oasis-Class liner, with sisterships Allure, Harmony, Symphony and Wonder. Oasis-class currently represents the world's biggest passenger ship design, however, Oasis OTS happened to be the smallest in this series - although with just 50 mm (~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 vessel was completed on October 28, 2009, by STX Europe (Finland) - a division of the South Korean multinational STX (shipbuilding corporation). At its arrival in the USA, right before it docked at homeport Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale), the vessel had to pass under the Danish bridge Great Belt Fixed Link. This was challenging as the bridge is 65 m (213 ft) higher than sea level while ship's highest point is normally 72 m (236 ft) above sea level. But it made it - due to its telescoping funnels, with only 0,6 m 2 ft) to spare when passing under the bridge!

The cruise liner has an impressive number of 7 godmothers. Each of the "good ladies" symbolized one of the ship's 7 different neighbourhoods. The naming ceremony took place at Port Everglade, on December 5, 2009.

On November 4, 2016, world's 3 largest cruise ships - Harmony, Allure and Oasis - convened off 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). The following aerial photo shows an Oasis-class vessel (as looked from above).

Oasis OTS refurbishment 2019 review (Royal Amplified)

Ship's Royal Amplified drydock refurb is scheduled for 2019 (September 22 - November 23) and budgeted USD 165 million (EUR 150M). By this 63-day long drydocking project (at Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz Spain) many new venues will be added, including some fleet-firsts.

 

Pool Deck (deck 15) was completely renovated and redesigned, also receiving "The Lime and Coconut" (2-level poolside bar/first added on Navigator OTS). The new venue offers beverages (including cocktails), DJ, and live outdoor music performances. Swimming pools' sunbathing areas received more shaded seating, including daybeds, hammocks, swing seats, casitas (small wooden cabins). The adults-only Solarium complex was refreshed and new whirlpools were added. Aft on Deck 16 (entrance point) was installed the 10-story high waterslide "Ultimate Abyss" (introduced on Harmony OTS) plus "The Perfect Storm" (3 waterslides entrance).
