The biggest newsmaker this week was, without a doubt, the handover of Oasis of the Seas to Royal Caribbean.  Whether she’s your cup of tea or not, there’s no denying this is a major milestone for nautical engineering, shipbuilding, and even hotel management – with over six thousand guests, Oasis of the Seas is also one of the world’s largest hotel management operations.

Oasis of the Seas departed Turku, Finland yesterday with Captain William S. Wright in command.  As of this writing, she is just off the coast of Denmark, and is destined to call in Southampton, England on Monday, November 2nd.  After that, it’s across the Atlantic where she will arrive in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 11.

Oasis of the Seas will be officially named during a ceremony on November 30th, with her first revenue-maiden voyage occurring on December 5th.  For more information on Oasis of the Seas, including a fantastic video of her first departure as seen from the Bridge, visit the Oasis of the Seas website.
