Oasis of the Seas Installs New Waterslides During Dry Dock
As you may have read before from TheOceanTraveler, the Oasis of the Seas has been in a 63-day dry dock in Cadiz, Spain since late September.
Royal Caribbean released new photos however of some exciting new features as part of its $165 million dollar “amplification.”
A new trio of waterslides called “The Perfect Storm” include three different types — Cyclone, Supercell and Typhoon. Each has a slightly different thrill including twists, turns and length.
Additionally a massive 10-story tall thrill slide named the “Ultimate Abyss” has been installed on the stern of the Oasis of the Seas. The feature starts at the Sports deck and twists, turns and dips all the way into the Boardwalk area of the ship. The feature can be found on the Symphony of the Seas and the Harmony of the Seas as well.
Splashaway Bay kids water park and Lime & Coconut bar have also been updated. A new Portside BBQ restaurant, Sugar Beach candy store and Playmakers Sports Bar have been added or upgraded too.
The Oasis of the Seas will be sailing to PortMiami to begin her seven day Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises starting November 24th.
At 225,282 tons and a guest capacity of over 5,600 the Oasis of the Seas is currently one of the largest sailing cruise ships for Royal Caribbean.
