Oasis of the Seas, 2 day Inaugural – it has already been a week since I disembarked from the Oasis of the Seas, but I haven’t been able to put into words my final impressions of the Oasis of the Seas. Part of the issue is that I was only on the ship for 2 days. I did not get to experience all that she had to offer. The Oasis of the Seas is the first ship where I feel like you need a full 7 days to really get to experience everything.
A lot of my focus while on the Oasis of the Seas was visiting as many of the 37 category of staterooms as possible. We all love options, but the Oasis of the Seas’ many choices for staterooms can be daunting to even the most seasoned cruiser. So I have the Royal Loft Suite, Aquatheater Suite, Boardwalk Balcony, and Owners Suite on video for you to see for yourself. The Boardwalk and Central Park Balcony Staterooms offer a cruising experience never before seen. The staterooms are just the tip of the iceberg of the innovations found on the Oasis of the Seas.
The AquaTheater, Sportsdeck, Rising-Tide Bar, Royal Promenade, Central Park, and the Adult Vitality Spa are all amazing. My favorite spot on a cruise ship, the Casino has a nice poker room with two electronic Poker Machines that each sat 9 players. The Casino is loaded with 470 slot machines and plenty of table games.
The Oasis of the Seas is currently catching a premium price, which I think will continue to go up. The Oasis of the Seas is not like any other ship at sea and the price is going to reflect the difference. Each time the ship unloads, there will be 1000s of new people who are going to be ambassadors for the Oasis spreading the word about the amazing experience. If you are looking to book the Oasis of the Seas for 2010, I recommend booking it now. If the rate were to drop after you book it, we can get you the lower rate. But I anticipate the rate going up until 2011 after the Allure of the Seas hits the market.
I could write a book about all of the innovations on the Oasis of the Seas and still would not able to do her justice. You can watch the videos and get a better since of the WOW, but until you are experience the Oasis of the Seas yourself; you will not fully grasp the INCREDIBLE that is the Oasis of the Seas.
