THE DOOMED TITANTIC
CRUISE HISTORY: OASIS OF THE SEAS, the world’s largest cruise ship, passes the island of Ruissalo shortly after departing the Turku, Finland shipyard of STX Europe, where she was built. The above YouTube footage was recorded October 30, 2009 at 08:30 AM. Her destination is Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Despite months of anticipation and a huge amount of advance publicity, Royal Caribbean’s 6,360 passenger OASIS OF THE SEAS is set to begin her maiden season with a wide variety of available accommodation. Some industry insiders are speculating that the surge of publicity the ship will receive when it arrives in Florida next month for a gala series of inaugural events will help sell more berths. Others remain skeptical as an already soft cruise market continues to be impacted by the sluggish economy.
With a height of a 20 story building it is an naval architectural marvel. All kind of facilities and recreations are provided to the passengers. But believe it looks like stacks of chicken crates. The ship as no real lines and has the appearnce of a container ship meets the most vulgar aspects of Vegas.
With a capacity of 6,296 passengers, and 2,160 members of the crew, it is 5 times the size of the Titanic.
With lofty cabins, sprawling luxury rooms and spacious balconies which overlook the sea, this $ 1.5 billion marvel is also equipped with a 750 seat amphitheater, a golf course and an ice rink.
The pool and the sports section of the ship, also hosts the ships largest fresh water pool, with a sea spa and fitness center, besides 4 swimming pools.
The luxuriant gardens with 12,000 plants and 56 trees offer tranquility to the guests.
People will either love it or hate it. 6000 passengers!
