HTML_header_rci_oasis_1With lofted suites, a handcrafted carousel, sculptured glass domes and the first zip line at sea, Royal Caribbean’s new ship, Oasis of the Seas, is a family vacation hot spot!  The 5,400-passenger ship offers the cruise line’s “neighborhood” concept, which features a variety of settings for relaxation, dining and entertainment.

There are seven special neighborhoods on board, including Central Park, Boardwalk and AquaTheater.

  • In Central Park, pathways wander through lush plantings of grass, flowers and trees, with two glass-domed canopies transferring sunlight to the decks below.  The park also provides lovely views for more than 300 staterooms that rise six decks high on either side.
  • The Boardwalk provides old-fashioned family fun. The centerpiece is a handcrafted carousel, the first at sea.  Guests can select from a variety of dining spots, browse through shops and try their skill at carnival games.
  • The Boardwalk leads to the stunning AquaTheater, the first amphitheater at sea.  Guests can swim and take SCUBA lessons in the AquaTheater’s large freshwater pool.  At night, the pool becomes a performance venue for acrobatics, water ballet, professional high-diving and fountain shows.
  • Additional neighborhoods include Entertainment Place, the Pool and Sports Zone, the Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, plus an expanded version of the cruise line’s signature Royal Promenade.

The sheer size of the Oasis of the Seas allows new types of accommodations, such as contemporary loft suites with double-height windows.  Other surprises on board include not one, but two of the cruise line’s popular rock climbing walls, plus the first zip line at sea.


The Oasis of the Seas is sure to please cruisers of all ages.  The family friendly design on Oasis of the Seas will allow all members of the family to have a great family vacation experience. For more information about how you can sail on the Oasis of the Seas, talk with Cruise Buzz.
