Oasis of the Seas

Dec 19, 2009

AJ’s own Michele Rosenberg was recently one of the first passengers ever to expierence this amazingly new innovation in the cruise industry, called Oasis of the Seas.

Oasis of the Seas” brings a whole new meaning to amazing! Amazing Journeys was invited to be one of the first to see the newest member of the Royal Caribbean fleet. On the pre-inaugural sailing of “Oasis of the Seas” I was one of the first to see and experience this marvelous vessel. I had the honor and privilege to have two amazing days on the most innovative ship on the seas to date. The technology on board is phenomenal and makes cruising easy for everyone. You have the capability to search for venues and things to do with the state-of-the art equipment on each deck. A touch-screen board helps you find exactly what you are looking for and even shows you how to get there. It will even map out the easiest way to get to your cabin! There are also information boards that list each dining venue and what the current capacity is so you know if there is a wait at any given restaurant.

It is difficult to put into words the awe one feels the moment you walk on board. She is truly magnificent in every aspect of the word. Oasis of the Seas is the biggest cruise ship in the world at 225,000 tons with a 5400-passenger capacity. This ship has more cabins than the average Las Vegas hotel has rooms if you can believe it. Options are endless both in entertainment and dining. It was not easy taking it all in but believe me when I say I gave it my all. Seven neighborhoods on 16 decks and one will never get bored.

  1. Royal Promenade – The Rising Tide Bar located on this “indoor street” transports guest between three decks while you enjoy a martini of your choice. Only one of many options with great selections of shops, pubs and restaurants. Not to mention a cupcake shop, which is a true highlight for any sweet tooth.

  2. Boardwalk – Truly reminiscent of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, you can become a kid again as you ride on a carousel, the world’s first onboard any ship, or take in a show at the one-of-a-kind Aqua Theater that is sure to wow you!

  3. Central Park – A tranquil gathering place where you can enjoy gourmet dishes in one of the many restaurants as you look outside to the trees blowing in the breeze. You can even dine al fresco! Central Park features serene pathways guiding you to boutiques and more.

  4. Pools & Sports Zone – One deck dedicated to offering you multiple pools, two rock climbing walls, two surf simulators, full-size basketballs court, miniature golf, ping-pong, and a beautiful and relaxing solarium.

  5. Vitality at sea Spa and Fitness – If you are in need of R&R, this state-of-the-art therapeutic setting is the perfect place for you. This spa offers the latest fitness equipment with the most advanced spa therapies. And.. this neighborhood is no different then the others, as it to has a dining option at the entrance offering healthy dining options.

  6. Entertainment Place – Enjoy the Broadway show, Hairspray or take in a comedy show. There is no shortage with the diverse venues both with grand and intimate performances – more to choose then ever before!

  7. Youth Zone – A dedicated space for age-appropriate groups where kids can be kids monitored by a caring staff.

Although this may sound too large to even comprehend, how so much fun can fit onto any floating vessel, the layout provides a good old intimate feel that many will relish. As we say on any of our amazing travel opportunities and this ship is no different, ‘you are free to do as much or as little as you wish’. I can tell you every day on Oasis will be amazing!
