Oasis Of The Seas Review
Review of Oasis Of The Seas
Launched in 2009, Oasis of the Seas is the 1st Oasis-class Royal Caribbean liner, with sisterships Allure OTS (2010) and the bigger (currently world's largest passenger liners) Harmony OTS (2016), Symphony OTS (2018), Wonder OTS (2021) and TBN OTS (2023).
History - construction and ownership
Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is a US company, trademarked brand, and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both numbers of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All Royal Caribbean liners have names ending with "of the Seas".
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.
Curious about the 225,282-ton, 5,400-passenger Oasis of the Seas? This unique floating island reinvented the definition of Royal Caribbean of a mega-ship. Oasis' neighborhoods include foliage-filled Central Park with 12,175 plants; innovative 2-deck Loft Suites; 20 onboard dining options and more.
Cruise itinerary program
Oasis of the Seas itinerary program is based on 7-day Western and Eastern Caribbean cruises Fort Lauderdale FL. Feature port destinations include Cozumel Mexico, Nassau Bahamas, Saint Thomas, Saint Maarten, Jamaica, and Labadee (Royal Caribbean's Haiti private island resort).
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 will be homeported in NYC (Port Cape Liberty, Bayonne New Jersey), starting turnaround operations in May 2020. Through 2020 summer, the Oasis ship cruises on 7-day Florida-Bahamas itineraries, visiting Port Canaveral, Nassau, and CocoCay Island. For August 1 (2020) is scheduled a special 8-day itinerary also visiting Miami.
Oasis OTS has a total of 2793 staterooms (of which 196 Suites, 1793 Balcony rooms, 716 connecting) in 44 cabin grades. Most of the staterooms are 170-ft2 Interior (498) and 46 are wheelchair-accessible. The largest cabins are the Royal Loft Suites (149 m2). The new “Royal Suite Class” cabin category (suite accommodations only) provides highest-paying passengers with Royal Caribbean's ultimate all-inclusive cruise experience, marked by Coastal Kitchen exclusive access, 24-hour personal butler service, included gratuities, all-inclusive drink package (complimentary), free Internet and thermal suite unlimited access.
During drydock 2019, to the ship was added the UPS cabin category (Ultimate Panoramic Suite) with 2 such staterooms located forward on Deck 14 (portside and starboard, both adjacent to / above the Navigation Bridge).
Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

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).
