titles of the ship-building and ship-designing.
The cruise ship Oasis of the Seas is the largest,
the widest, the highest and definitely the most expensive cruise
ship of the world. But definitely, when talking about cruise ship,
like this one it is not enough for the company Royal Caribbean.
They ordered such vessel, because they needed large size to put

interest about the vessel.
The ship from the class of Oasis of the Seas cannot
be built in each
shipyard. It is hard job to build such large ship. The owners
of the cruise ship Oasis of the Seas decided to order their vessel
in STX Europe shipyard (ex Akeryards) in Turku, Finland. The ship-yard
is among the highest quality and best yards in the world. The
shipbuilders knew that the job is hard and such large vessel needs
of strong engine and quality propulsion system. The cruise ship
has main engine Wartsila, which is giving total power of 128,640
hp, which is enough for the ship to reach the maximum speed of
25.6 knots in seatrials, but according to engineers the cruising
speed is 23.0 knots. The measurements of the vessel are quite
big, which do not allow for Oasis of the Seas to sail everywhere.
The destinations of the luxury cruise ship will be mostly in Caribbean
Sea and Western Europe. Only a couple of ports can host such large
vessel, which is the main reason for the ship to have restricted
access to ports. In all cases having vacation on board of Oasis
of the Seas will be really attractive, very beautiful and great
for everyone, because on board definitely you will find your place.
