When the Oasis of the Seas set sail in 2009, it became the largest passenger vessel in the world — bearing 5,400 passengers, boasting seven ‘neighbourhoods’, 2,700 staterooms and 16 decks.

The Oasis, started accepting bookings for itineraries in late 2009, ushered in Royal Caribbean’s next generation of cruise ships. Virtually a floating city, Oasis boasts the first ever carousel at sea and two 43ft-high rock climbing walls. On offer are itineraries along the eastern and western Caribbean, the Bahamas, etc.


The ship also introduces the ‘neighbourhood’ concept: seven themed areas that allow vacationers to seek spaces based on their personal styles, preferences or moods. The AquaTheater, for instance, has a kidney-shaped pool to splash in, with tiered platforms surrounding it. Scuba lessons are available in the afternoons. At night, though, the area transforms into a stage with theatrical performances, acrobatics, synchronised swimming, water ballet and professional high diving, as well as elaborate fountain shows synchronised to music and lights.
