Southampton hosts Oasis of the Seas

Date Posted: 04 Nov 2009

Southampton became briefly the centre of attention this week when the world's largest and most expensive cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas, dropped by on its way to North America.

The gigantic £855 million vessel, which is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises, sailed into the Solent off the south-east of England and stopped briefly to drop off 300 shipyard workers before continuing its journey.

Capable of accommodating more than 6,300 passengers, the cruise ship will offer holidaymakers a variety of luxurious amenities on the sea including restaurants, bars, cafes and designer shops.

Holidaymakers who opt for a voyage on the megaship will have 21 swimming pools at their disposal as well as a central park complete with real trees.

Other amenities include a full-size fairground carousel, a water theme park, an ice rink, a cocktail bar and a large theatre.

The ship, which was recently handed over to its owners, will officially be named in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, before embarking on its maiden voyage in December.
