On May 10, 2020 Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas will depart New York for the first time marking a number of major milestones including: The first Oasis class ship to call at New York and the largest cruise ship ever to call at the port. The Oasis of the Seas is the first Oasis Class ship built for Royal Caribbean and has just competed (November 2019) a $165 million dollar refit which Royal Caribbean refers to as Amplification. The Oasis will sail a series of cruises departing from Cape Liberty, Bayonne, New Jersey calling at Port Canaveral, Florida; Nassau, Bahamas and CocoCay, Bahamas where passengers can enjoy the perfect day at Coco Cay (Royal Caribbean's Private Island destination). As part of her series of New York / New Jersey cruises, the Oasis of the Seas will also sail on a single, 6-day Canada cruise calling at St. John New Brunswick, Canada and Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Oasis of the Seas will sail from Cape Liberty Bayonne NJ until October 25, 2020.
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 game-changer 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 re-imagined, 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.”
The newly amplified Oasis also sets sail with the Royal Caribbean International mobile app. Guests can now check in for their cruise vacation from their phone, and once on board, enjoy a lineup of capabilities. With the easy-to-use digital stateroom key and in-app TV remote features, the ability to explore and plan activities for each day, and make dining, shore excursion and show reservations, travelers can seamlessly transition into vacation mode.
Oasis is the first of the cruise line’s renowned Oasis Class–the world’s largest cruise ships–to be modernized as part of the Royal Amplified fleet modernization effort. An investment of more than $1 billion, across 10 ships in four years, the program touches every facet of the guest experience on board.
