The world's most expensive ocean cruiser Oasis of the Seas cruise is seen at a dockyard in Turku, Finland - it is the largest cruise ship ever built with the capacity to hold 6,360 passengers and 2,160 crew members Although the shipyard employees are still busy working on Oasis of the Seas and its sister ship Allure of the Seas, which is to be ready in autumn 2010, Fain and Landtman admitted the global downturn had drained cruising companies' willingness to order new vessels.After trying to find my ideal partner with no success, I decided to give Oasis a go recommended from a friend.
From the first message there was an instant spark and after many phone calls, mes sages and a couple of dates; I can happily say that I have found my dream partner and looking forward to what the future holds.We were both about to give up on the search, but Oasis gave us an opportunity to meet and fill the voids that we had in our lives.From the first message there was an instant spark and after many phone calls, messages and a couple of dates; I can happily say that I have found my dream partner and looking forward to what the future holds.Guests who spend time aboard the record breaking vessel can expect a whole new world of entertainment including an aquatic amphitheater - called the Aqua Theatre - which serves as a pool by day and a dazzling ocean front theatre by night and a rock climbing area.Included in the ship's vast expanse are seven themed 'neighbourhoods': Central Park, Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Centre, Entertainment Place and Youth Zone.
