Has anyone else read this? My Daughter sent this to me via email, and found it very interesting as far as plans for Labadee go. It was released in December, but I had not heard any of this at all.If you already knew this, then just disregard....

Rollercoaster?? Shocked


"At the base of the peninsula, Labadee Town Square will offer guests cultural experiences, shopping, dining and entertainment, featuring the Haitian Cultural Museum, Café Labadee and Bar, and the Straw and Artisan Market. From the Town Square, guests will board the new Alpine Coaster, a thrilling new roller coaster experience on Labadee."

Additional sailings to include special Labadee Celebration Cruise.

Miami, FL (Vocus/PRWEB ) December 19, 2008 — Vacationers will now be able to experience the world's most highly-anticipated cruise ship even sooner. Royal Caribbean International today announced two additional sailings to Oasis of the Seas' inaugural season: a seven-night inaugural Eastern Caribbean itinerary, sailing on December 5, 2009; and a special four-night voyage – departing December 1, 2009 – to celebrate the launch of an all-new Labadee, Royal Caribbean's private beach paradise in Haiti.



On the December 5, 2009 inaugural voyage, guests will be among the first to enjoy Oasis of the Seas, with all of her venues and amenities, and premiers of the full array of breathtaking AquaTheater light and water shows, and new productions in the Opal Theater and Studio B ice-skating rink. The seven-night itinerary will call at St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Nassau in the Bahamas. Throughout, guests will enjoy the friendly and engaging Gold Anchor Service from Oasis of the Seas' staff and crew, representing more than 70 nations around the world.

Guests booked on the original inaugural sail date of December 12, 2009 will be contacted by their travel agent or a Royal Caribbean representative, and given the opportunity to move their cruise vacation to the new inaugural sailing of December 5 before the sailing opens to the public for booking on January 12, 2009. During the re-accommodation period, which ends on January 11, 2009, the following special benefits will apply. Guests choosing to sail consecutively on both the December 1 and 5, 2009 voyages also will receive a $200 onboard credit per stateroom ($300 onboard credit per suite) for an extraordinary 11-night Oasis of the Seas cruise. Booked guests who wish to take either the December 1 or 5 sailing will be re-accommodated in the same stateroom and category. The cruise fare for the December 5 sailing will remain unchanged. Guests wishing to sail on the four-night voyage will receive a prorated fare.

On the December 1 four-night itinerary, guests will make a call at Labadee and enjoy two days at sea. Oasis of the Seas maiden port of call at Labadee on December 3, 2009 also will herald the opening of new facilities and debut of a spectacular array of activities and excursion options at the private beach destination. Oasis of the Seas will dock at Labadee's new pier (currently under construction), which leads guests through a grand entry to the welcome plaza. Water taxis and five different walking paths, trails and avenues will take guests from the welcome plaza to many areas throughout the peninsula, including the new Dragon's Plaza, Labadee Town Square, and Columbus Family Beach, all currently under development. Sea-based excursions, including a new exhilarating fast boat tour, also will depart from the welcome plaza.

At the north end of the peninsula, Dragon's Plaza will be the heart of Labadee and feature the Dragon's Breath Café and Pub, a welcome center, and central tram station, which will ferry guests to other areas of the peninsula. Guests booked on the extremely popular Dragon's Breath Flight Line, the world's longest zip-line over water, also will begin their excursion here.

At the base of the peninsula, Labadee Town Square will offer guests cultural experiences, shopping, dining and entertainment, featuring the Haitian Cultural Museum, Café Labadee and Bar, and the Straw and Artisan Market. From the Town Square, guests will board the new Alpine Coaster, a thrilling new roller coaster experience on Labadee.
With convenient transportation from the pier via water taxis, the new Columbus Family Beach will appeal to adults and children of all ages, where guests can enjoy lunch and refreshments at the Columbus Café and Bar. Guests also can rent one of many private family cabanas, which dot Columbus Family Beach.
Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas (debuting in 2010) will claim the title of the world's largest and most revolutionary cruise ship. Architectural marvels at sea, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas will span 16 decks, encompass 220,000 gross registered tons (GRT), carry 5,400 guests at double occupancy, and feature 2,700 staterooms. They will feature the cruise line's new neighborhood concept of seven distinct themed areas, which will offer guests of every age the widest array of onboard vacation experiences that cater to their personal styles, preferences or moods. New categories of onboard accommodations made possible by the ship's cutting-edge design include bi-level, urban-style Loft Suites; two bedroom/two bathroom AquaTheater Suites; and Central Park- and Boardwalk-facing exterior staterooms with balconies. Both will be homeported at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. More information about both ships' exciting, first-at-sea onboard amenities can be found at www.OasisoftheSeas.com.

HUH? I hope this is a joke. Shocked

I had always seen people joking that Castaway Cay (Disney) would do this...but never Royal Caribbean.

I swear it is not a joke. I couldn't believe it when she sent me this. That is why I posted it here, wondering if anyone else had heard any of this already?

Nope, it's not a joke. I asked over on CC. And they have been talking about it since last December. Shocked I can't believe there isn't more outrage over this idea. I guess it opens in Dec 2009 and will be more like a bob sled, without the snow.

I know Michele, I don't know how we missed that Shocked I guess since I have been spending all my quality time over here at the new board( where it is much nicer, thank you)and I missed the post at CC about it. I am one who does not wish for this to happen to that beautiful Island. We'll have to see what happens , especially after Oasis docks there for the first time.

A roller coaster? That is wild. I wonder who it building it? Has construction begun yet?

I guess the area is being clear and ready for the new dock. But no signs of construction yet for the coaster. It is suppose to be ready for the first few Oasis sailings. Nick and Susan will have to give us a report. Very Happy

Do they even let you outside of their private island and do sightseeing on your own?

Even if they would "allow it", I would not recommend it.
