Awards

We randomly chose ships from some of the largest classes in the industry and the huge 225,282 gross ton vessel came out with the most amount of votes. Oasis of the Seas is the first in its class and at the time it entered service in 2009 was the world’s largest cruise ship. The vessel can 5,400 guests at double¬†occupancy and over 1,180 feet in length, it really is a floating city.

The “Best Large Cruise Ship” category was one of the last to be added to this year’s Cruise Ship Awards. Each month we added new categories where readers were able to vote only once in each¬†one. The Best Large Cruise Ship was only open in December 2016 and there were only two weeks to go until the results.

Oasis of the Seas is currently sailing out of Port Canaveral, Florida on Eastern And Western Caribbean itineraries.
