It's no secret that Royal Caribbean’s newest and largest ships feature some of the most family-friendly facilities and programs afloat. With the introduction of the 5,400-passenger Oasis of the Seas in November 2009, the line’s goal is to provide guests with even more opportunities to seek out relevant experiences onboard based on their personal style, preference or mood in seven neighborhoods, including Central Park, Boardwalk with the AquaTheater, the Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone, the Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center, and Entertainment Place. To that end, the seventh and final neighborhood was announced last night: The Youth Zone, a haven for children and teens.
The latest neighborhood unveiling introduces a wealth of kid- and teen-friendly adventures that lie within the Youth Zone—covering a total expansive area of more than 28,700 sq. ft.—including, Kids Avenue, a central boulevard connecting children with dedicated Adventure Ocean spaces and various themed play areas; the cruise line’s first nursery for infants and toddlers six months or older (pictured above); and state-of-the-art teen areas.
Complete details are outlined in CruiseDiva.com's Cruise News and a video preview of these areas, including interviews with Royal Caribbean executives, is now available online at the Oasis of the Seas web site.
