Royal Caribbean confirmed on Oct. 25 that it is under negotiations to get another Oasis of the Seas, which is the world's largest cruise ship.
USA Today reported that the cruise line's chairman said to Wall Street analysts that the line could announce the deal of another Oasis of the Seas by the end of the year.
Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas set sail in 2009 and 2010, USA Today reported. "Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas have proven themselves to be exceptionally attractive ships by generating the highest guest satisfaction ratings in the fleet coupled with very compelling financial returns," said Fain at a conference, reported USA Today.
Royal Caribbean called Oasis a ship that "revolutionized cruising" and that " its groundbreaking design introduced seven distinct neighborhoods built for ultimate enjoyment" on its website.
Along with these seven distinct neighborhoods on board, the ship also currently boasts 25 different dining options and 2,394 crew members, says the ship's website.
"At 225,282 tons, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas are nearly 50% larger than the next largest cruise ships and are chock-full of resort-like amenities including more than a dozen restaurants, four pool areas, a tree-lined "central park" and the first zip lines at sea. They can carry nearly 6,300 passengers a piece," added USA Today.
The ship even boasts an ice skating rink, mini golf course and two rock climbing walls as well as a full sized basketball court and a hand carved carousel.
USA Today reported that Fain suggested that if the ship was ordered it wouldn't be delivered until 2016.
