Oasis of the Seas
One of the biggest cruise ships in the world, Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas cruises the Caribbean all year round from Port Canaveral.

When it entered service in 2009, Oasis of the Seas was a mammoth sight to behold. It still is even though two newer siblings have since entered service.
This titan has undergone two makeovers since it launched. In 2014 ten suites were added, some overlooking the AquaTheatre, while a 2016 renovation added some luxury elements such as the first Tiffany boutique at sea and ‘Royal Suite Class’ which includes personal butler service.
Nothing can prepare you for the wow-factor engendered by this floating behemoth which accommodates 5,400-passengers and a crew of 2,165. The most distinguishing factor of Oasis of the Seas is undoubtedly the seven, distinct neighbourhoods; and it’s these themed areas – with their urban overtones - that really define the character of this vessel.
The Royal Promenade is the central ‘hub’ of the ship and is linked to Central Park by the Rising Tide Bar – the first moving bar at sea which ascends and descends three decks. With its plants and trees, Central Park offers a lovely respite from the buoyant energy that permeates this ship. With a Coney Island theme complete with Carousel, the Boardwalk which leads on to the AquaTheatre is a pleasant open-air space and a magnet for kids. Entertainment Place is a fusion of the ship’s main entertainment venues; while Vitality At Sea is a double-deck conurbation of Spa and Fitness Centre. Youth Zone is extensive – as is the Pool & Sports Zone – with its five pools, FlowRiders, mini-golf, and full-size basketball court.
If there was one outstanding facet of any cruise aboard Oasis of the Seas it’s the headline entertainment. There’s an incomparable ice show ‘Frozen In Time’, with 14 world-class skaters; and breathtaking ‘Oasis of Dreams’ show in the purpose-built AquaTheatre pool where a cast of 15 synchronised swimmers, acrobats, and high-divers enthral the audience. Everyone raves at the quality of the performers at ‘Cats’ – an almost full-length production of the Lloyd Webber show in the Opal Theatre that includes many members from the Broadway and West End cast. Other not to be missed entertainment is on offer at the prohibition-era speakeasy that’s Jazz on 4 which showcases live jazz and blues; and with its New York subway station vibe, Comedy Live is the ship's standalone comedy club, featuring family-oriented humour as well as more risqué, adults-only comedy late at night.
We cannot recommend the entertainment highly enough, whether it’s the seemingly infinite variety of activities on deck during the day or in each of the neighbourhoods after dark. Another facet we like is the variety of dining options, many of which come at a surcharge but the quality never disappoints and the level of service goes up a few notches.
