Shorter delays expected on Oasis of the Seas

Date Posted: 28 Aug 2009

Royal Caribbean Cruises is looking to go against the book with its Oasis of the Seas vessel by ensuring that delays during boarding will be kept to a minimum, USA Today reports.

Larger ships are widely regarded to have lengthier delays starting their trips as it takes longer than expected to get all passengers on board.

However, Oasis of the Seas, the largest cruise ship ever built, is hoping to buck this trend through changes made to the ship's boarding process.

Part of the quickening up procedure will be carried out on land, where the line will conduct its security checks on passengers before they make their way onto the gangplank.

According to the publication, Royal Caribbean chief executive Richard Fain said: "[On many ships] there's one doorway (into the ship) and everyone has to come through that doorway and go through screening, creating a bottleneck.

"Under the new system of pre-screening before passengers reach the gangway, there's no bottleneck anymore."

Other ships that holidaymakers can choose to board for their cruise holidays to a range of destinations include Legend of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas.
