A first look video clip of “Oasis of the Seas”

P1000708With a total capacity of 8461 passengers and crew and weighing in at over 225,000 tons, the new Oasis of the Seas is… enormous. I am lucky enough to be onboard right now for one of the first cruises, before paying passengers come on board, and you can watch my little video showing you around some of my favourite parts of the ship below. You see the amazing Boardwalk area with restaurants, donuts, rock climbing walls and the Aqua Theatre, the ice rink, the Opal Theatre, the huge Promenade through the centre of the ship, Central Park with 100s of real trees and plants right through the middle of the ship, the zip line over the centre of the ship and me giving expert lessons in how not to surf on the Flow Rider!
