Largest Cruise Ship Ever

Five times larger than the Titanic, Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas is the world’s largest passenger vessel ever built. Oasis left her shipyard in Finland on Friday (Oct. 30, 2009) and is set to arrive at her home, Port Everglades, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 20th. With her Maiden voyage set for December 5th, let’s take a closer look at this $1.5 billion behemoth of the seas.

HISTORY
The vessel was ordered in February 2006 and designed under the name “Project Genesis”. Its keel was laid down on November 12th, 2007 at STX Europe in Turku, Finland. The company announced that full funding for Oasis of the Seas was secured on April 15th, 2009. The name, Oasis of the Seas resulted from a ship-naming competition in May of 2008.

MEET THE SEVEN NEIGHBOURHOODS
The Oasis of the Seas will include a new concept in cruise ship design—one that bears resemblance to theme park planning. She will have seven ‘neighbourhoods’ on board, each with its own distinct characteristics.

Boardwalk
The Royal Promenade
Central Park
The Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center
The Pool and Sports Zone
The Entertainment Place
The Youth Zone

*Is it just me or do the last four areas not really have a ‘neighbourhood’ feel with their namesake?

NOTABLE HIGHLIGHTS

– The AquaTheater is an outdoor venue at the stern of Oasis of the Seas with a backdrop of the ocean across the horizon. The AquaTheater Pool will be the largest and deepest freshwater pool at sea at 21.9 feet (6.6 meters) by 51.6 feet wide (15.7 meters), with a depth of 17.9 feet (5.4 meters)

– Fitted with three stage machinery devices, the pool’s depth will rise or fall to meet the needs of each performance and for its various functions throughout the day. Three custom lifts built into the pool will allow for intricate and multilevel performances, and underwater cameras will film performers and project images onto two giant LED screens that will flank the stage

– A first-ever and one-of-a-kind sea carousel will be the centerpiece of the Boardwalk. The full-sized, traditional carousel will feature 21 figures suspended from stainless steel poles

– A zip line, suspended nine decks above Boardwalk. Adventurers will take in a birds-eye view of the action below, as the rider speeds diagonally across the open air atrium – a distance of more than 82 feet (25 meters)
