Hot Holidays In Lanzarote

Oasis of the Seas – the most luxurious cruise ship ever!

Oasis of the Seas, the biggest and most expensive cruise ship built till our days, will be made public today, in the Finnish Harbour Turku, from Baltic Sea, having its destination USA. Its contruction started in Finnland in 2006, the ship is five times the size of the Titanic. Oasis of the Seas is a real ‘floating city’, that cost 900 million euro, 360 metres length, 47 metres width and is 220,000 gross tons. The huge cruise ship is 65 metres high over sea level and has 18 decks where travelers find natural trees, a swimming pool with surfing waves, fitness halls, casinos and many others. The passengers’ entertainment will be possible due to the Broadway plays and ice skating shows.

The American company, Royal Carribean, claims that the ship is the ‘most original ever built’. Its attractions haven’t ever been built on a cruise ship before. Instead of placing a block of cabins in the middle of the ship, the builders have stacked the rooms on either side, a radical innovation that left an airy, glass-enclosed atrium longer than a football field at the core. Because of the amphitheater-style seats, 600 guests can watch acrobatics and synchronized swimming.


The cruise ship can host up to 3.630 passengers and around 2.100 crew members. For its inaugural journey, Oasis of the Seas will depart on the 1st of December from the Fort Lauderdale Harbour, in the American state Florida heading to Labadee, in Haiti. From December 2009 through April 2010, the Oasis will sail to the Eastern Caribbean visiting the ports St.Thomas, St. Maarten & Nassau, Bahamas. The Western Caribbean cruise itinerary will include the ports of Labadee (Royal Caribbean’s Private Island), Falmouth, Jamaica (NEW PORT), and Cozumel, Mexico. The ship includes a wide range of facilities for the visitors such as Central Park Neighbourhood, Boardwalk Neighbourhood, Aqua Theater, two rock climbing walls, rising tide bar, crystal canopies, zip line, carousel. As accommodation in the cruise ship is concerned, there are inside, promenade-view, junior, royal, crown loft, sky loft, balcony, ocean-view, central park view, grand, family, royal loft staterooms.

The seven neighbourhoods of the Oasis of the Seas are the Youth Zone, the Royal Promenade, Entertainment Place, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, Pool and Sports Zone, Central Park, Dining-wise. There are also 12 additional areas with extra fee charge. As the enviroment is concerned, the Oasis of the Seas is equipped with the most advanced wastewater-purification systems, however, it pollutes more than a land resort. President Adam Goldstein asserted that “the challenge for our brand and for cruises in general is to fight for market share with land-based vacation options for all the consumer vacation dollars.”
