Journeys : Oct Nov 2010
October / November 2010 93 Cr uising is fast becoming the 'holiday of choice' and the past year proves this, with a record number of Australians choosing to cr uise for their holiday. There's evidence these latest figures will be easily surpassed in the upcoming year. Growth in cruising is not limited to Australia -- it's a worldwide phenomenon, with cruise companies building even bigger ships with more experiences to enjoy. Royal Caribbean has mega ships like Oasis and Allure, the largest cr uise ships in the world, offering everything from wave pools to a Central Park neighbourhood, making them destinations in themselves. They have also committed their popular Radiance class ships, Radiance of the Seas and Rhapsody of the Seas, to the Australian market. These are ships that just three years ago we thought we would never see outside of the northern hemisphere. Like never before, cr uise ships offer much more than shuffleboard on the aft deck, bingo in the main lounge and a cocktail by the sea! Allure of the Seas Allure of the Seas shares the title of the world's large st and most revolutionary cruise ship with sister-ship Oasis of the Seas. Allure of the Seas will tout Royal Caribbean's exclusive neighbourhood concept of seven distinct themed areas. An architectural mar vel at sea, she will span 16 decks with 2700 cabins, encompass 225,282 gross registered tons and carry 5400 guests at Seeing is believing!double occupancy. Allure of the Seas will also feature The DreamWorks experience, bringing the next evolution of family programming and entertainment onboard. She'll even host one of Broadway's longest- running theatrical productions, Chicago: The Musical as the ship's signature show. Oasis of the Seas Experience our most innovative and imaginative ship yet, Oasis of the Seas, where, for the first time ever, entertainment areas have become neighbourhoods at sea. You'll find a revolutionary public space combining nature with nautical in our Central Park neighborhood, or old-world charm with a moder n twist in the entertaining Boardwalk neighbourhood. Visit the Pool and Sports Zone to explore an entire deck of pools, rock-climbing walls, basketball courts and more. And don't forget the Youth Zone, where kids can be kids and parents can be wor ry-free. With a total of seven distinct onboard neighbourhoods, everyone can discover a place for unique experiences. With 28 ultra-moder n loft suites and 2700 spacious stateroom s, this 16-deck mar vel proves that the impossible, is possible. You have to see it to believe it!
