PostSubject: Oasis of the Seas - Last Neighborhood - Youth Zone   Wed Oct 22, 2008 9:05 am

Royal Caribbean's much-ballyhooed Oasis of the Seas will have a
full-blown baby nursery on board -- a first for the line as it caters
ever more to families with young children.


The specially-staffed Royal Babies and Tots Nursery, as it's being
called, will welcome babies as young as six months old and is just part
of a massive children's area the line is unveiling online tonight for
the 5,400-passenger vessel -- the largest ever built.

Dubbed The Youth Zone, the 29,000-square-feet kiddie area also will
have dedicated space for the line's signature Adventure Ocean program
for grade school children (ages 3-11) and state-of-the-art teen areas
-- all revolving around a central boulevard to be called Kids Avenue.
The Youth Zone is the seventh and final neighborhood to be announced for
Oasis, scheduled to debut in late 2009. The others: Central Park, an open-air
atrium with live trees; Boardwalk, a family-friendly amusement area; Royal Promenade,
an indoor mall-like zone; the Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center; the
Pool and Sports Zone; and Entertainment Place, a sprawling nightclub district.

Royal Caribbean says the nursery will remain open into the evening and offer free-time
play and group activities.

As on existing Royal Caribbean ships, the Adventure Ocean programs
for the 3- to 11-year-old crowd will include arts and crafts, scavenger
hunts, talent shows and other activities.

The line says The Youth Zone also will have common play areas that
include an arcade and the Workshop -- a place where families can learn
scrapbooking skills or create personalized jewelry.

Another notable addition to Royal Caribbean's kiddie lineup is the
Adventure Ocean Theater, billed as the first children’s theater at sea.
It'll have its own stage and curtains, audience seating and
state-of-the-art production equipment.

The theater will offer a venue for children's theater productions,
talent shows and hip-hop dance classes -- activities that lack
dedicated space on existing Royal Caribbean ships.

Oasis of the Seas also will have bigger versions of the teen-only
spaces now found on other Royal Caribbean ships, including Fuel disco
and teen hang-out The Living Room.
