Oasis of the Seas Enters Dry Dock

Oasis of the Seas which is one of the world’s largest cruise ships operated by Royal Caribbean has entered the Navantia shipyard in Cadiz, Spain. The huge cruise ship arrived to begin a major upgrade which will last almost a month.

The huge $165 million upgrades will be completed before November 24 which is when the new-look ship will debut from Royal Caribbean’s state-of-the-art Terminal A at PortMiami, Florida.

Workers will begin to work on the ship on the interior and exterior for 63-days including a reimagined pool deck inspired by the Caribbean which also will feature Splashaway Bay for kids. The Ultimate Abyss aft slide will be added which was first introduced on sister ship Harmony of the Seas.

New trio waterslides for some fun on the deck called the Perfect Storm will be added along with a The Lime & Coconut signature bar, Portside BBQ, and dedicated karaoke venue Spotlight Karaoke. For the full details of what will be added click here.

The vessel will offer 7-night eastern and western Caribbean cruises once back in service. In 2020 Oasis of the Seas will become the largest cruise ship to sail from the Big Apple. She will sail 7-night sailings to the Bahamas including Royal Caribbean’s private island Perfect Day at CocoCay based out of the Cape Liberty Cruise Terminal in Bayonne, New Jersey.
