And yes, world’s largest cruise is now officially finished according to BornRich:
Owned by Richard D. Fain, the $1.4-billion, world’s largest ship, “Oasis of the Seas” is finally finished. It’s five times larger than the Titanic, has seven neighborhoods, an ice rink, a golf course and a 750-seat outdoor amphitheater. The Oasis, known as NB-1363, is so tall she needs a retractable funnel, or smokestack, to duck under bridges such as the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York or the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark. The ship that mingles the glitter of Las Vegas with the vivid fantasy of Disney is estimated to have the useful life of 30 to 40 years.
Yey, there’s a helicopter landing pad for those like me who can come and leave the Oasis of The Seas anytime they want. j/k
A pool with artificial waves might be also great way to practice surfing or boogie boarding while on the Oasis of The Seas.
Boarding from New York? You won’t miss home with Central Park in place. Rather smaller but still, it’s big enough to be on a boat.
Here’s a diagram of the sports activities on deck that includes a mini-golf course, full-size tennis/basketball court, the wave-pools, and lounging area for sun-bathers.
Sounds like a good ship to go on a cruise, the Oasis of The Seas should be available as part of Royal Caribbean International’s offerings.
