When Royal Caribbean launched Oasis of the Seas in 2009, the cruise ship instantly became the standard by which all future mega ships are measured.
At 225,000 gross tons, Oasis of the Seas was nearly 50% larger than any other cruise ship at sea when the ship made its debut. Holding over 6,000 passengers at maximum occupancy, Oasis of the Seas brought new features to the cruise industry like the incredible Boardwalk and Central Park neighborhoods.
The Boardwalk is my favorite park of the ship and Oasis was the first ship to have a split aft section. This gives cruisers the option of booking a balcony either overlooking the ocean or over the Boardwalk area. Inspired after Coney Island, there are several places to grab a bite to eat (Johnny Rockets, Sabor), shop, or get a drink.
No Boardwalk would be complete without a carousel and Oasis of the Seas has one as soon as you walk on the Boardwalk.
