Oasis of the Seas was launched in 2009 and at the time of her launch was hailed as the most innovative ship of the time. Packed with groundbreaking features, Oasis of the Seas set the stall for cruising going forward. However, being a brand who are continuously innovating and upgrading, Royal Caribbean have recently completed an overhaul of epic proportions. Thus during the Oasis Of The Seas Refurbishment in 2019 everything was re-thought and upgrade, resulting in a truly wonderful cruise experience.
