A natural evolution of the signature Royal Promenade featured on Voyager- and Freedom-class ships, the new design found on Oasis of the Seas will allow guests to have a physical connection with the neighborhood above - Central Park - as natural light cascades down from the sky. Giant glass-arched skylights, the Crystal Canopies, form a sculptured roof that will look up into Central Park and the sky beyond.
Creative Naval Architecture
The unique Rising Tide bar - the first moving bar at sea - is an engineering feat that will span three decks and allow cruisers to enjoy a cocktail as they slowly descend from Central Park and arrive into the Royal Promenade.
Suspended above the Globe and Atlas Pub, is an unfurling bridge on hinged hydraulics which will create a spectacular, surprise element for guests. Incorporated into the pub's facade, a giant copper globe "cracks open" as part of its unique construction and extends over the Royal Promenade as a bridge platform. A focal point of the Royal Promenade, the bridge will be approximately 10 feet above and adjacent to the entertainment area for performances.
Located towards the aft of the Royal Promenade, a mezzanine level will allow for sweeping views of the promenade and features the cruise line's Schooner Bar, Adventures with Royal Caribbean International and the line's loyalty member club, the Diamond Club.
Another first for the cruise line, the Royal Promenade will serve as the entry point for all guests embarking on Oasis of the Seas, rather than the traditional lower decks. A vast tree sculpture by international artist Larry Kirkland serves as an impressive welcoming spot.
