The world’s most innovative and largest cruise ship ‘Oasis of the Seas’ – launched by Royal Caribbean International in December 2009 – will sail into Palma in 2014, during a short autumn season of European cruises. The ship spans 16 decks, accommodates 5,400 passengers, and offers seven distinct themed areas. Amenities include the Royal Promenade – an interior boulevard flanked by restaurants, lounges and boutiques; Central Park, with more than 12,000 live trees and plants; speciality restaurants, wine bar, champagne bar, and even a Starbucks. Sporting facilities include surf simulators and cantilevered whirlpools; ice-skating rink, and 82-ft-long zip line. The Europe 2014 cruises went on sale last month.
