RCCL have 22 ships in operation with 6 different classes; Oasis Class, Freedom Class, Voyager Class, Radiance Class, Vision Class and Sovereign Class. This hub will give you some information and a Royal Caribbean review about Oasis Class, Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.

Oasis Class
Both Oasis Class ships are designed very similar but each has their own distinctive touches and personality. Many would say that the Allure of the Seas and the Oasis of the Seas are 2 of the grandest ships in the world.

The two ships have a wide range of very similar facilities which certainly won’t disappoint you, some of these facilities include;
*Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness, here you will find massage suites for individuals and couples, a youth spa, hair and make up facilities and 158 modern, state of the art cardio and resistance equipment.
* Pool and Sports Zone, there is an aqua park for children called the H2O Zone, 10 whirlpools and 4 pools, a tranquil poolside solarium area, 2 flow riders, mini golf, zip line, sports courts, bistro, café and a bar.
* Entertain Place, you will be able to splash the cash at the Casino Royale, Studio B which features incredible ice shows, the Opel Theatre which seats 1380 people, a nightclub, jazz and live comedy and Dazzles that has music from big bands through to disc.
*Youth Zone where your children can play in the open gym and activity area, the science lab, make jewellery and scrap books. For teens you have the Fuel Disco, The Living Room Lounge and The Back Deck. There is a nursery service also for babies and tots.

Ports of Call
If cruising on the Allure of the Seas or the Oasis of the Seas you will mostly be sailing around the Caribbean. RCCL are experts when it comes to the Caribbean, hence their middle name (Royal Caribbean International) and there itineraries and ports of call are by far the best in the business calling at 39 different ports in and around the Caribbean. RCCL not only offer the fantastic service on board their ships but they also ensure that you are looked after and have the best experience with the ground excursions they offer. Some of the sights around the Caribbean cruise that they offer are, climbing the Dunns River Falls in Jamaica, trekking through the Rain Forest in Costa Rica, Visit Labadee (one of Royal Caribbeans exclusive private destinations) exploring the Mayan Pyramids in Cozumel, Diving, Snorkeling and horse riding across the beach to name but a few.

Allure of the Seas
The stunning and elegant Allure of the Seas has 28 ultra modern loft suites, 2700 staterooms and 16 decks.
Ship Facts;
Guest capacity – 5400 double occupancy
Gross Tonnage – 220,000
Length – 1187’
Cruising Speed – 22 knots
There is certainly no chance on board this ship for you to get bored with all that’s on offer and along with the facilities mentioned earlier, the Allure of the Seas is the only ship to be showing “How to train your dragon” Ice show and “Madagascar” Aqua show. If you enjoy shopping, you can still shop ‘till you drop on board the ship with their own shopping area full of shops ranging from jewellery and souvenirs to the toiletries that you forgot to pack, there is a shop for everyone. Lets not forget about the food, you can enjoy a sit down meal in the main dining room and the speciality restaurants, take your family to the casual dining areas and family restaurants or you could just stay in the comfort of your room and order room service.

Oasis of the Seas
The Oasis of the Seas is one of the world’s largest ships and the most innovative and imaginative ships yet. To give you an idea, combine nautical with nature at the central park area or old world charm with a twist in the board walk zone. The Oasis of the Seas is very similar in size to the Allure of the Seas with its 28 ultra modern loft suites, 2700 spacious state rooms and 16 decks, the guest capacity and gross tonnage are also the same and a speed of 22 knots which is the equivalent to 25.3 mph. The ships vary slightly with shopping, restaurants and entertainment but both have the same amount of facilities and all equally as high standard and impressive as each other.

With this review of Oasis Class, Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas, you can see the standards and quality of these two ships. The whole fleet of ships are equally as brilliant as each other but all have their own uniqueness and special touches.
