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.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
