Oasis of the Seas emerges from $165 million transformation

Oasis of the Seas has made a splash in its return to South Florida with a $165 million new look.

Oasis of the Seas debuts a combination of new Royal Caribbean experiences, including the cruise line’s first barbecue restaurant, Portside BBQ; and guest favourites from the tallest slide at sea–the Ultimate Abyss–to popular live music venue Music Hall, and a reimagined, Caribbean pool deck.

Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International said:

To see a 63-day, $165 million effort come to life on a ship as iconic as Oasis of the Seas is remarkable. Our guests–new and fans alike–are in for an Oasis that takes family vacations to the next level. With exciting, new adventures and signature experiences, this ship is every bit as original as the day she debuted 10 years ago, almost to the day.
