This majestic, colossal cruise ship is brilliantly laid out to maximize every passenger’s enjoyment and cruising experience. It has 16 decks and 2,700 staterooms that range in size from inside staterooms of approximately 150 square feet to the Royal Loft Suites that are over 1,500 square feet with large balconies of about 800 square feet. Royal Caribbean cruises leads all other cruise lines in the creation of this state-of-the-art ship that can comfortably accommodate well over 5,000 passengers.
The Oasis Of The Seas is a virtual miniature city with several “neighborhoods” running along the center of her outside deck with cleverly situated balconied staterooms or cabins overlooking the bustling activities of the passengers below.
These seven neighborhoods, or themed zones are, in alphabetical order, Boardwalk, Central Park, Entertainment Place, Pool and Sports Zone, Royal Promenade, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, and Youth Zone.
Here is a brief rundown of what you will find in each of these seven neighborhoods.
To start with, the Royal Promenade, is where cruise passengers board the ship. It is a virtual mall-at-sea and has a variety of retail shops, cafes, and bars.
Stroll along the Boardwalk that features a beautiful handcrafted carousel and experience the atmosphere of Coney Island. At the end of the Boardwalk, at the stern of this amazing cruise ship, you will find a huge swimming pool where throughout the day passengers can swim, relax on deckchairs, sunbathe, or even take scuba diving lessons. By night the pool is magically transformed into the AquaTheater which features a spectacular water show where numerous nozzles spout pressurized water high above the pool. These turbocharged towering jets of water are synchronized with a music and light display.
To top it all off, an innovative high-wire Zip Line stretches across the Boardwalk. Passengers that book strategically located state rooms or who are strolling in this area can watch their thrill-seeking, daredevil fellow passengers soar along this exciting high wire.
Central Park is full of fabulous flowers, lush shrubbery, and trees. This glorious greenery is maintained by gardeners who rotate the numerous flowers and plants to reflect the appropriate season. In this large neighborhood park you will find a number of upscale and casual themed restaurants and bars for you to unwind and enjoy deliciously prepared food and alcoholic beverages.
The Entertainment Place features the thousand-plus seat Opal Theater, a large dance disco ballroom, a nightclub, a jazz lounge, a comedy club, and of course the world’s largest cruise ship casino.
The grand Vitality Spa and Fitness Center is the largest spa on the seven seas. It will appeal to all passengers that want to relax, unwind, and be pampered in the lap of luxury.
The Pool And Sports Zone, which is located high above the Boardwalk, features two surf creating FlowRiders, a pool dedicated to a variety of water sports, a full-size basketball court, a mini golf course, two massive rock climbing walls, and the thrilling Zip Line.
And last but not least there is the Youth Zone where trained personnel cater to parents’ babies and toddlers so their moms and dads can have some time to themselves aboard the ship. For the older kids and teens there are a multitude of fun things to keep them occupied.
If you have never gone on a luxury cruise before, maybe now is the time. The Oasis Of The Seas has something that will appeal to almost everyone and is a destination in itself. You will be very impressed.
