MIAMI, Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean International's iconic Oasis of the Seas, the ship that revolutionized the cruise industry, has made a splash in its return to South Florida with a $165 million new look. The original gamechanger debuts a thrilling combination of new Royal Caribbean experiences, including the cruise line's first barbecue restaurant, Portside BBQ; and guest favorites, from the tallest slide at sea–the Ultimate Abyss–to popular live music venue Music Hall, and a reimagined, Caribbean pool deck. Oasis is now sailing 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises from Miami before heading to the Big Apple in May 2020, where it will become the first of its kind and the largest cruise ship to sail from the area.
"To see a 63-day, $165 million effort come to life on a ship as iconic as Oasis of the Seas is remarkable," said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. "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."
