Default Oasis Of The Seas Amenities

I know you probably heard about the "Central Park" concept to replace the Grand Promenade, and the balcony cabins overlooking the park. BUT - I read of a "Coney Island Boardwalk" area with a working carousel and carnival games, evening water shows in an AquaTheater, and GET THIS - a zip line nine decks above the Boardwalk area. And NCL is bragging about having a bowling alley on their new ship ???

NCL already has bowling alleys on the ships.

Royal has announced awhile back the boardwalk, zip line and aqua theater. I think there is a Promenade and Central Park one is not replacing the other.

The Zip line over the boardwalk should be awesome and the lines for that should be long too.

I'm still waiting to hear if there will be a lazy river.

My son reports to me as he is studying the Oasis deck plans.

As part of the coney island boardwalk, they are also supposed to have a carosal.
In another area... they have a floating bar... when it goes up, fountains come on under it, I think it floats up 3 decks. I was reading the book on this at AAA while waiting for my t/a.

It looked kinda busy though... almost like they are trying to put too much on one ship. I don't know, it just looks that way.

That being said, if I had the opportuntiy (and money), I'd probably sail on her.

If you look closely at the pictures of the new boat...you can see down from the Central Park via skylights into the Promenade!

Sooooooo cool....but doubt we'll get to cruise on the ship. $$$$$$$$

Just our of curiosity, where have you been? Central Park is NOT replacing Royal Promenade, and Boardwalk, Central Park and Royal Promenade were all revealed weeks ago.

See it all for yourself.

Love the excitement and obviously it isn't just our small sampling. I couldn't even get into the initial "RCI webinar" training on selling/booking "Oasis."

My only major concern isn't selling the ship, it's that many more folks flying into Florida (and back out again) every weekend. I'd love to see more air/sea "specials" to help folks out, Robbie
