Royal Caribbean has based its huge cruise ship Oasis of the Seas at Port Canaveral representing a major coup for Brevard County’s seaport.
The Oasis will offer seven-night Eastern Caribbean and Western Caribbean itineraries from Port Canaveral in the winter of 2016-17.
The Oasis will be the biggest ship ever to be based at Port Canaveral, and is tied for the title of the biggest ship in the world, along with sister ship Allure of the Seas. It has a double-occupancy capacity of 5,400 and a full capacity of 6,360. It carries a crew of 2,394.
In addition, Royal Caribbean said Rhapsody of the Seas will take over three- and four-night Bahamas cruises from Enchantment of the Seas at Port Canaveral.
