Upcoming: Touring Oasis of the Seas

Good morning cruise nation! I have some very exciting news, on Saturday, October 6th I will be touring Royal Caribbean’s very own, Oasis of the Seas.

So, as I have done in the past, I will be boarding in Fort Lauderdale around 11:00am with general embarkation, touring the massive and beautiful ship, eating lunch somewhere on board, and learning what it really means to be on a “mega ship.” I will also have the chance to speak to a few crew members while on board and as usual, I will take hundreds of photos to share with you both here on the blog in a video tour form and on our Facebook page in a photo album.

I am really looking forward to touring Oasis of the Seas and my return to my favorite city in the world, Fort Lauderdale. If you’ve ever sailed Oasis of the Seas before, I would love to hear your suggestions in the comment section of places and things I should definitely check out or do while on board for the afternoon. I can’t wait to experience the most innovative ship ever built, even if only for a few hours.

Have a great Saturday everyone!
