So far... it's a bunch of people who appear to be clueless who are chatting with each other. I'm not signing back in until 8:30pm Eastern, that's when the big reveal takes place - waste of time otherwise.

I agree Kenny, so far it's BlahBlahBlah The only thing that is kind of neat is the virtual show - if it isn't too expensive, it would be a neat tool to help promote cruises here. Have a big cruise night and let the agents showcase their various cruises...

So far nothing more than a sales pitch and a lot of confused and frustrated people, apparently this isn't too successful so far... Many people can't even sign in properly - some type of trouble of getting a white screen and nothing else... Oh well, I'm not waiting around, I'll find out the big reveal tomorrow, this is too frustrating and, my time is worth more to me than them.

ROYAL CARIBBEAN REDEFINES CRUISING FAVORITES WITH OASIS OF THE SEASSM


Miami,
August 27, 2008 – At a Virtual Travel Show sponsored by AAA Travel last
night, Royal Caribbean International unveiled two more neighborhoods
for the highly anticipated Oasis of the Seas, the world’s largest and
most revolutionary cruise ship when she launches in November 2009. The
Pool and Sports Zone and the Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center
were announced at the consumer Internet event, revealing additional
examples of innovation and amenities for which Royal Caribbean has been
renowned throughout the cruise line’s history. This latest announcement
precedes the opening of Oasis of the Seas’ general bookings on
September 3, 2008.

"Royal Caribbean is thrilled that AAA Travel
is providing us a forum to make another momentous announcement for
Oasis of the Seas," said Adam Goldstein, president and CEO, Royal
Caribbean International. "This latest unveiling of two more
neighborhoods to be found on Oasis of the Seas continues to prove our
legacy of revolutionary cruise ship design. We have developed the Pool
and Sports Zone and the Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center to give
our guests even more choices on a unique and memorable Royal Caribbean
cruise."

The Pool and Sports Zone and the Vitality at Sea Spa
and Fitness Center – coupled with the previously announced
neighborhoods of Central Park, Boardwalk and Royal Promenade – will
provide guests with the widest array of experiences from which to
satisfy their personal styles, preferences or moods on a cruise.
Stretching the length of the ship, the Pool and Sports Zone is an ample
playground for guests of all ages, featuring private cabanas, four
unique types of pools, and two FlowRider surf simulators – each larger
than the single FlowRider found on the line’s Freedom-class ships.
Building on the Royal Caribbean’s popular Vitality wellness program,
guests will be able to soothe mind, body and soul in the Vitality at
Sea Spa and Fitness Center. New to the spa services menu and fitness
line-up are unique spa treatments and Kinesis group classes, a
full-body, no-impact workout utilizing fluid, natural movement to
engage several muscle groups simultaneously.

"It is very
exciting to be part of this latest reveal of Oasis of the Seas and to
share it with our AAA members as well as the rest of the world," said
Doug Bower, vice president, AAA Travel. "AAA Travel and Royal Caribbean
International have had a very successful partnership for many years
now, and this event takes our relationship to a greater level. We are
encouraging all of AAA’s more than 51 million members to take a close
look at the exclusive AAA promotions being offered this summer for
Oasis of the Seas and other Royal Caribbean ships."

The Pool and
Sports Zone will showcase new additions to traditional amenities,
including an intimate adults-only Solarium and sports deck that will
awe even the most seasoned cruiser. The first Beach Pool at sea will
have a sloped entry where guests will be able to wade into the water or
relax in colorful beach chairs under an umbrella as the water rolls
gently beneath. Two whirlpools will flank either side of the "beach"
for guests who prefer warmer waters. Located on the opposite side of
the ship from the Beach Pool and separated by Central Park six decks
below, is the Main Pool with two side-by-side whirlpools, ideal for
rest and relaxation in the sun. Overlooking both pools will be private
cabanas, complete with a dedicated attendant. Families looking for fun
in the sun will easily spot Royal Caribbean’s signature H2O Zone,
marked by a giant octopus with its slides and water-spraying tentacles
and surrounded by fellow water-spouting ocean creatures. Separate
wading and current pools, as well as a dedicated infant and toddler
pool, will be set in the interactive aquatic playground and surrounded
by adult and child-sized lounge chairs. The more competitive set will
find haven in the Sports Pool, where afternoon water team sports will
include basketball, badminton and water polo, while morning hours will
be dedicated to lap swimming.

Adults looking for a retreat from
the bustle of every day life will find solace in the grandest Solarium
yet. Boasting a redefined layout, guests will have the sensation of
floating on air from the two-deck high, glass-paneled enclave designed
with seating on various “islands” surrounded by water. The open-air
Solarium will offer a tranquil swimming pool, two serene whirlpools,
and four cantilevered whirlpools suspended 136 feet above the ocean.
The mezzanine level of the adult-dedicated area will overlook the pool
deck below, offering additional chaise lounges and seating. The new
Solarium Bistro will offer casual fare from the Vitality spa menu
during the day, and in the evenings, transform into a romantic and
intimate setting for specialty dining and dancing under the stars. It
is also the perfect venue for a unique late night dance club experience
– Club 20 – made popular on the line’s Freedom-class ships.

The
Sports Deck in the Pool and Sports Zone also will boast new
innovations, including the first zipline at sea, and two of the popular
FlowRider surf simulators, flanking either side of the elevated back
deck. Royal Caribbean favorites such as the nine-hole miniature golf
course, Oasis Dunes, will challenge golfers of different abilities, and
the Sports Court, will allow for friendly games of basketball and
volleyball. Spectators will be able to cheer flowboarding guests from
the Wipe Out Bar or enjoying casual dining at the Wipe Out Café.

Created
as the crown jewel of the cruise line’s Vitality program, the Vitality
at Sea Spa and Fitness Center will encompass various amenities that
cater to complete body wellness. As a precursor to any treatment,
guests are encouraged to begin the spa experience by unwinding in the
calming relaxation rooms. The new Vitality at Sea Spa will include a
Thermal Suite, featuring heated tile loungers, saunas and steam rooms;
three couples massage suites and seven individual treatment rooms - the
largest collection at sea. Kids and teen guests also will find their
own dedicated Spa in which to enjoy specially catered services. The
Fitness Center will offer vacationers a plentiful and varied selection
of the latest cardio and resistance equipment for working out alone or
for joining one of the several classes, including spinning, kickboxing,
Pilates and yoga. Whether after a satisfying workout or a soothing spa
session, the Vitality Café will be a convenient stop for healthy
snacks, light meals and refreshing juices.

When she launches in
late 2009, Oasis of the Seas will be the largest and most revolutionary
cruise ship in the world. An architectural marvel at sea, she will span
16 decks, encompass 220,000 gross registered tons (GRT), carry 5,400
guests at double occupancy, and feature 2,700 staterooms. Oasis of the
Seas will be the first ship to tout the cruise line’s new neighborhood
concept of seven distinct themed areas, which includes Central Park,
Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone and Vitality
at Sea Spa and Fitness
Center. The ship will sail from her home port
of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Additional information is
available at www.oasisoftheseas.com.
