Passengers who enjoy buying some mementos when on board a cruise ship or dining at extra-charge restaurants are currently doing so at a blistering pace when travelling with Royal Caribbean Cruises
According to USA Today, the liner's chief executive Adam Goldstein revealed that Oasis of the Seas
is the top performing ship in terms of on-board spending.
Meanwhile, he explained that work is in progress to attempt to translate the success of the 5,400-passenger ship onto some of Royal Caribbean's other 20 ships.
Mr Goldstein said: "It has proven to be an even stronger on-board revenue generator than we had foreseen, and we were pretty optimistic before.
"Clearly, there is a lot of learning from Oasis with respect to both guest features and on-board spend potential, which we are evaluating with respect to how we might contribute those features or opportunities elsewhere in the fleet."
Furthermore, Oasis of the Seas features an AquaTheater pool, which is the deepest on a ship at 5.4 metres.
Water show performances can also be enjoyed, with acts taking advantage of ten metre high diving platforms.
