If you know anything about cruising, you probably have heard of ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISE LINES. They are undoubtley the leaders in Ship innovation and have taken cruising to a whole new level.
Recently, I attended a Royal Caribbean workshop and learned about the OASIS OF THE SEAS and it did not disappoint.
This ship was one of the first designs by RCCL to incorporate “neighbourhoods” throughout the ship. The OASIS has 7 neighbourhoods in total, Central Park, the Royal Promenade, pool and sports, the Boardwalk, Adventure Ocean, Vitality Spa, Entertainment District.
There are a total of 2,744 staterooms and total capacity for 6,680 passengers!
Have you ever wondered what it takes to feed and supply this many passengers? Here are a few interesting facts for you:
- There are 20 chefs and 222 cooks
- There are 5 bar managers and 188 bar tenders to service 37 bars and 28 galleys
- All breads and pastries and ice cream are made fresh on board daily
Here is what is consumed in one week on board:
- 15,600 lbs of beef
- 1,600 lbs of chicken
- 10,517 lbs of pork
- 1,800 lbs of lobster
- 86,400 eggs
- 1,800 lbs potatoes
- 5,800 lbs cheese
When it comes to alcoholic drinks, guest enjoy:
- 10,200 bottles of beer
- 8,500 cans of beer
- 2,225 bottles of wine
- 550 bottles of vodka
- 11,500 cans of soda
- 110,231 lbs of ice a day.
The numbers are staggering and the accomplishment is immense!
To top it off, this ship offers the first ever living park at sea, complete with over 12,175 plants as tall as 24 feet. It also hosts the largest performing pool at sea, with 18ft depth!
These are just a few facts to show the amazing level of accomplishment and what it takes to run the largest cruise ships in the world. The amazing thing is that, as time goes by, they will continue to become bigger and better!
