Next year me, Jared, my mother and my sister are supposed to be going to see Jared’s mother for a week (in the states) then driving down to Florida and staying there for a week. That way the parents get to meet and then we get some sun and fun in Florida…
…I say supposed to however as I just found out about the Oasis of the Seas. Royal Carribean’s newest cruise liner; and now all I want to do is take another 2 week cruise around the caribbean…well maybe a week so we can still go to see Jared’s mother for a week. This ship is just insane, forget Central Park, NYC, try Central Park, OotS – a fully irrigated, open, real foliage park at sea.
And it doesn’t just stop there, directly below this park, there’s a 2 level shopping mall. Then at the back of the ship is an AquaTheatre – kind of like Sea World has – except there’s also a childrens carousel there too. There’s also a moving bar that goes between the 3 floors of the royal promenade (not sure how that’s gonna feel when you’re tipsy.)
And like the other ships, there’s a theatre, pools, climbing wall, several places to eat etc.
It’s the addition of the park, the increased shopping area, the AquaTheatre and the size that makes this ship just so awe-inspiring though (the park alone is the size of a football pitch.) It’s 220,000 tonnes, can have 5,400 passengers, is 360 metres long (1,181 feet), width of 47 metres (154 feet).
