Oasis of the Seas Cruises

Oasis of the Seas Cruises

The naming ceremony for Oasis of the Seas is nearly upon us. Shorty after that she will depart for the first time with paying passengers.

What do you think of the ‘biggest ship in the World’? Do you think the £800 million will have been worth it? There’s only one way to find out…

There aren’t many events in the cruise industry calendar that attract quite as much attention as Oasis of the Seas has. I think the last comparable level of interest was probably the launch of QM2.

Built during a global financial crisis, delayed by rough seas and under the scrutiny of the Worlds press; the Oasis of the Seas has not had it that easy.

Over the last year, many cruise fans have watched with bated breath as Royal Caribbean drip fed us with tidbits of information and computer generated renders of the various Neighborhoods onboard.

We’ve watched the keel being laid on November 12, 2007, witnessed her delivery to RCI from South Korean ship builders STX Europe on October 28 2009 and was I the only one who was suppressed to learn that full funding was only secured on April 25, 2009?

We’ve also got to know the Chairman Opens New Window and CEO Opens New Window of Royal Caribbean though their respective blogs.

So, after all that buildup, have you been persuaded to book a place the most hyped ship in the World? There have been naysayers Opens New Window but the fact is Royal Caribbean & cruise agents like us have been inundated with potential customers that can’t wait to see Her for themselves.

You may not have been lucky enough to get a place on her inaugural sailing, but you can still be one of the few (thousand) who can claim to have sailed on her first season in 2010. You can also be one of the lucky few that got a really good deal on such a cruise.

It’s not too late, really. But it will be soon. We’re offering you 7 nights in Orlando and 7 nights on a Oasis of the Seas cruise for only £999. This is a saving of up to £200 and includes onboard gratuities, but can only last until Dec 1st. Have a look at our Oasis of the Seas cruise deal for more details.

I hope you’re as excited as I am about Oasis of the Seas. Whatever your personal preference is when it comes to cruising, it’s difficult not to be impressed by what Royal Caribbean has achieved here. And with the Allure of the Seas due this time next year, let’s hope she delivers on all those promises.
