“To see a 63-day, $165 million effort come to life on a ship as iconic as Oasis of the Seas is remarkable,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Our guests–new and fans alike–are in for an Oasis that takes family vacations to the next level. With exciting, new adventures and signature experiences, this ship is every bit as original as the day she debuted 10 years ago, almost to the day.”

Other additions range rom the Ultimate Abyss, billed as the tallest slide at sea, to the Perfect Storm, a multi-story waterslide concept to an “escape room” attraction called Apollo 18.
