Southampton hosts Oasis of the Seas

Date Posted: 04 Nov 2009
Category:
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.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
