BIG ship happens! Royal Caribbean floats out Oasis of the Seas

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On November - 21 - 2008

The Oasis of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, has been floated out of its dock.

The 5,400-passenger Royal Caribbean International ship is under construction in Turku, Finland.

The vessel, 40% bigger than current world beaters Freedom of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas and Independence of the Seas, was moved from dry dock to wet dock to begin the final stages of interior work prior to its debut in a year’s time.

Chairman and CEO Richard Fain said: “After more than three years of intense planning and collaboration and with 65% of the ship already complete, it’s exciting to see Oasis entering its final stages.”

Oasis of the Seas will enter service under the command of Captain William S. Wright and Captain Tor Olsen.

When Oasis launches in December 2009 from Florida to the Caribbean, it will feature a neighbourhood concept giving passengers seven distinct areas.
