The Oasis-class ships have been a staple in the cruise industry for years. But they are not the only large ships sailing today.

Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas is one of Royal Caribbean International’s largest cruise ships. It carries 5,400 passengers at double occupancy and features 2,700 staterooms.

Designed with seven distinct themed neighborhoods, the ship brings plenty of activities, phenomenal cuisine, family-friendly adventures and live entertainment. Those neighborhoods include Central Park, the Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, and Entertainment Place.

The Oasis of the Seas revolutionizes cruise ship accommodations, offering 37 different accommodation categories, including duplex “loft suites” that offer up to 770ft2 of floor space with 18-foot windows looking out over the ocean. There’s also a selection of junior and multi-level suites, some with private balconies.

Oasis of the Seas also features more than 50 complimentary dining options, including a buffet and grab-and-go restaurants. For those who prefer to eat more formal meals, the main dining room offers a wide range of choices.

Allure of the Seas

Part of Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class, Allure of the Seas is the largest cruise ship ever built. Its 18 decks hold world-class entertainment, state-of-the-art meeting facilities and a plethora of onboard activities to entertain the whole family.

It also has seven distinct neighborhoods designed into what feels like a village, 25 dining options (including the first Starbucks at sea), several first-at-sea experiences and 2,384 crew members to serve you.

The Boardwalk neighborhood, which sits at the ship’s stern, features a carousel, games, kids’ shops and casual dining. There’s also a white-knuckle zip line nine decks above the Boardwalk, an 82-foot stretch that’s an adrenaline rush for thrill-seekers.

Aside from the Boardwalk, other attractions include a rock-climbing wall and two surf simulators. The ship also has a cantilevered whirlpool suspended 136 feet over the ocean. And don’t forget to visit Central Park, a revolutionary design that runs the length of the ship and includes lush greenery and an expansive breezeway.

Symphony of the Seas

The largest cruise ship in the world, Symphony of the Seas is packed with activities for everyone. From surfing simulators to glow-in-the-dark laser tag, to a 10-story slide and ice skating rinks, there’s no shortage of thrills and chills on this Royal Caribbean ship.

With a capacity of 6,680 passengers and 2,200 crew members, Symphony of the Seas is a playground of adrenaline-raising fun that’s designed with families in mind. From the 10-story slide and waterpark-like Splashaway Bay to two FlowRider surfing simulators, a rock-climbing wall and a zip line, there’s something for every member of the family on this massive vessel.

Aside from the many action-packed attractions, Symphony of the Seas also boasts plenty of dining options. From burgers and fries from Johnny Rockets to just-shucked oysters from Hooked Seafood, Symphony of the Seas offers something for every taste.

Wonder of the Seas

As the largest cruise ship in the world, Wonder of the Seas is packed with plenty of features that are sure to dazzle any vacationer. With 18 decks, eight unique neighborhoods and a wide variety of dining options, this ship has something for everyone.

Wonder of the Seas is an Oasis-class ship, meaning it’s one of the newest Royal Caribbean ships to hit the ocean. Oasis-class ships don’t feel crowded as much as other ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet, so it’s easy to find a spot where you can relax or have some fun.

Oasis-class ships also have a few features that are unique to them, like the Lime & Coconut bar and Bionic Bar. Both of these bars are resort-style and offer a rotating selection of signature drinks. In addition, both of these bars have live music and DJs.
