the 'Oasis of the Seas' is five times as big as the Titanic... and this is what it looks like when 50 captains are steering the ship...


'Building the impossible' was the principle during the construction of the ship. And this is the result:
  • about 241 km of pipes and about 5310 km of electrical lines were installed on the Oasis of the Seas.
  • About 600,000 litres of paint were necessary for the paintwork.
  • The 21 pools contain approx. 2.3 million litres of water.
  • About 2.1 million litres of fresh water are required every day.
  • In its Central Park there are 12,175 plants, some of the trees are more than 7 m tall.
  • The Oasis of the Seas boasts the longest running track at sea. One lap is 692 metres long.
  • The maximum width of the ship roughly corresponds to the wingspan of an Airbus A340-300.
  • The Oasis of the Seas is about three times as long as a soccer field.
Take a look at the technical details:
