Oasis Of The Seas, The Ship That Changed The Game, Set For Royal Caribbean’s Largest Amplification Yet

May 27, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email

 Royal Caribbean International has today announced a larger-than-ever $165 million amplification of Oasis of the Seas, as it marks its 10-year anniversary setting a new standard for family holidays with first-to-brand experiences and the latest Royal Caribbean hits.

The amplified Oasis will set sail on Nov. 24, 2019 beginning 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Royal Caribbean’s new, state-of-the-art Terminal A in Miami, and will offer a reimagined, Caribbean-inspired pool deck that will feature a Splashaway Bay kids aquapark and The Lime & Coconut signature bar; famed Quantum Class staple, Music Hall; the Perfect Storm trio of waterslides, and the Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea. Debuting alongside this lineup is the cruise line’s first barbecue concept, Portside BBQ, and dedicated karaoke venue Spotlight Karaoke.

“When Oasis of the Seas debuted as the world’s largest and most groundbreaking cruise ship a decade ago, the typical cruise holiday as the world knew it was forever changed. Today, our Oasis Class ships continue to lead the industry and attract vacationers new to cruising,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“Now with the opportunity to disrupt the industry once again, we’ve gone all-in with our biggest and boldest amplification yet. Oasis will turn heads when she arrives to Miami this November and the Northeast in May 2020.”

Features included as part of the 63-day modernisation are:

  • Iconic Top Deck – the transformed neighbourhood will feature new ways to relax, celebrate and plunge into adventure, joining the popular twin FlowRider surf simulators, nine-deck-high zip line and twin rock-climbing walls. The adrenaline is turned all the way up with heart-pumping additions, including the Ultimate Abyss, a 10-story test of courage and the tallest slide at sea; andThe Perfect Storm, an action-packed trio of multistory waterslides known as Typhoon, Cyclone and Supercell.
  • Splashaway Bay – features a Splash Pad for tots, three waterslides, water cannons, fountains, pools and the first-ever twin drench buckets.
  • The Lime & Coconut – this signature bar will be one of the liveliest spots on board, day and night, with poolside cocktails, DJs and live music across two locations. Every pool is only as good as its places to chill, and Oasis will deliver a larger variety of seating and shade, including comfy casitas, daybeds, hammocks and swing seats, new whirlpools on the top deck, and a refreshed Solarium for the adults.
  • Portside BBQ – will offer an authentic, meat-packed menu inspired by the best-in-class barbecue across the United States. From smoked marbled brisket, pulled pork and chicken, to beef ribs and burnt ends, the casual eatery on the pool deck will tie it all together with classic sides – including mac and cheese, homestyle cornbread, baked beans and coleslaw – and down-home desserts such as the Banana Dream and a brownie cookie mashup.
  • El Loco Fresh – serves up made-to-order tacos and burritos, quesadillas, mini salads and salsas galore.
  • Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade – will anchor the lineup in the signature Boardwalk neighbourhood. With 80 big-screen TVs, tabletop games, arcade classics, tournaments, an Owner’s Box VIP room, bar fare and ice-cold brews, Playmakers is where everyone in the family wins.
  • Sugar Beach – features more than 220 types of candy and a new walkup ice cream window, it is the icing on the already-tasty offerings on board Oasis, which includes Chops Grille, Giovanni’s Table and Izumi.
  • Spotlight Karaoke – is on the Royal Promenade and is where budding singers can rock out to their favourite tunes at the dedicated karaoke venue’s main stage or one of two private rooms.
  • Music Hall – will feature a roster of live cover bands, an expansive dance floor, pool tables and intimate loungers across two levels.
  • Adventure Ocean – will receive a total makeover, with newly designed areas organised by activity type and created to fully immerse kids and their families in the adventures they choose based on their interests. Returning offerings include a nursery for the youngest of travellers, and a specialised area with programming for kids 3 to 5 years old. Teens can rejoice in their more off-the-grid hangout. With exclusive features like a “hidden” entrance, gaming lounge, movies, music, and a new, laidback outdoor deck, teens are free to engage however and whenever without interruption.
  • Adding to the variety of activities, featuring ice skating and mini-golf, Oasis will challenge friends and foes with a new glow-in-the-dark laser tag game, Clash for the Crystal City. Two clans, the Yetis and Snowshifters, must go head-to-head to claim the crystal city and defeat impending extinction. At the new Royal Escape Room – Mission Control: Apollo 18, the year is 1973 and travellers must come together to launch Apollo 18 to the moon by solving every mind-bending puzzle before time runs out.

The architectural marvel will break even more records when she heads to the Big Apple in May 2020 as the largest ship to sail from the New York area. Oasis will reposition to her new summer home at Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey, offering 7-night sailings to The Bahamas with visits to Royal Caribbean’s newly transformed private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Oasis of the Seas is the first of the cruise line’s renowned Oasis Class – the world’s largest cruise ships – to be modernised as part of the Royal Amplified fleet modernisation effort. Rooted in research and guest feedback, Royal Caribbean’s investment of more than $1 billion in the program spans 10 ships in four years and touches every facet of the guest experience to bring new thrills and signature experiences designed to appeal to every generation.
