Oasis Of The Seas offers real luxury that’s so much more than design and amenities. It’s about unforgettable experiences — moments that inspire, service that exceeds expectations, and one-of-a-kind adventures that give you stories to bring home.

Oasis of the Seas has been enthusiastically embraced as one of Royal Caribbean’s most beloved vessels, even more than a decade after its launch. At double occupancy, Oasis sails with 5,606 passengers, but during the busiest seasons, there can be nearly 6,700 people onboard. Its onboard attractions are so popular that up to one-third of the passengers never even leave the ship in port.

So what makes Oasis Of The Seas a hit for the families and active cruisers who love it? The secret is not only in the ship’s neighborhoods — which divide the vessel into manageable pieces, keep bottlenecks to a minimum and provide a dizzying amount of activities — but also in Royal Caribbean’s ability to evolve Oasis over time, sinking $165 million into the ship in 2019 as part of its Royal Amplification initiative to revitalize older ships.

Oasis Of The Seas cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 2796 staterooms for 5592 passengers (max capacity is 6431) served by 2395 crew-staff. The boat has 17 decks (16 passenger-accessible, 11 with cabins), 28 lounges and bars, 20 restaurants and food bars, 5 swimming pools, 9 outdoor Jacuzzis (whirlpool hot tubs), 24 elevators.

Specialty dinner/dining packages available for onboard booking (prices are per person):

  • “Central Park” package (cost $70 PP) includes Giovanni’s (Italian), 150 Central Park (dinner restaurant), Chops Grille (steakhouse).
  • “Chef’s” package (cost $130 PP) includes Chef’s Table, wine pairing, 150 Central Park (dinner restaurant), Chops Grille (steakhouse).
