Looks to be just routine maintenance but first sailing Europe for a few cruises.

The ship seemed to be in fine shape last time we cruised on her. But I am sure that there is a lot of maintenance that has to be done to keep her in ship-shape condition.

All ships must go in periodically for a complete check up of all systems. That is mandatory. As the Oasis was built in Europe and they have the only dry dock that will take her, and they built her there in the first place, arrangements have been made to sail her over and do a series of 5 days cruises in Europe then a 7 day cruise to the dry dock. From there they will sail a transatlantic back to the U.S.

On a personal note, I think they also want to try sailing an Oasis class in Europe and see how well it will be received as they consider moving one over there when the third Oasis class comes out.

Lady O's turn for dry dock

I agree one of the three big sisters will be off to Europe.

Default Oasis dry dock

I was on board a Royal Caribbean ship when they announced the Oasis was going into dry dock. They opened bookings up two or three days early for people on cruises at the time to book either of the transatlantics or the European cruises. When I went for my on board booking appointment they told me the Oasis was going into dry dock early to have a propulsion pod repaired. It was not a big problem but they wanted to fix it before anything else happened that would make it a big problem.

When they opened the bookings for the TA, I grabbed a couple of cabins for clients while they were still rather reasonable.

I booked one of the 5-night Barcelona round trips on Oasis (September 18 2014) as soon as they were available for CA members. It will be interesting to sail her in Europe!
The cruise was not cheap though, almost $4000 for a JS for 2 people.

I think Allure is going into dry dock in fall 2015, so I guess one more chance to sail an Osais class here in Europe.

They are not going to be docked where they were built (in Helsinki, Finland) but in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
