A boom to Economy ...

In this economic times, Royal Caribbean International's new ship orders for the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas (which will debut in 2010) provided some 12,000 man hours of work to complete this project.

A new destination to be Explored ...

When I speak with clients about their cruise vacation plans, one of the first questions that I ask is "What destination(s) are you interested in seeing?".

Oasis of the Seas is a destination of it's own. Stroll through Central Park, ride the carousel on the Boardwalk, enjoy a show in the AquaTheater or dine on the Royal Promenade. There are so many things to do and places to explore onboard, you might forget to go ashore. More Details .... Brochure...
