Oasis of the Seas next to Costa Atlantica

Today is a short update to the site with a few more pictures. This time its a series of pictures of Oasis of the Seas next to Costa Atlantica at the port in St. Thomas. It was a partly cloudy but beautiful day. The partly cloudy sky and deep blue green water was the perfect backdrop for these pictures.

You won’t see these two cruise ships at this port for several months as Oasis starts its Western Caribbean itinerary this week. For the next several months, Oasis will port in the Mexican Riviera before it returns to its Eastern Caribbean route at the end of the year.

A quick update on the size of Oasis of the Seas. Each time I got off the ship at the ports as other ships docked nearby I was able to appreciate the size of it! As you can see here on the left as it docked next to a Carnival Cruise ship, Oasis of the Seas towers over it. Not to mention the length of it compared to the Carnival Cruise ship, wow!

At every port we stopped, the passengers of the other ships would gather outside on their ships and watch us arrive. There were hundreds if not thousands of people waiting for Oasis of the Seas arrive and dock next to them. The lights of the flashes could be seen from far away and from all angles as they took pictures of us as we arrived!

The photo on the right was taken from a distance as we were taking a tour. You can see how much more larger Oasis is compared to the other ships! Some of the other ships docked were the Disney ship, Costa Atlantica, Carnival and one additional ship I don’t recall at the moment. The second largest on there is the Costa Atlantica on the far left, but as you can see it Oasis is significantly larger.

I’ll share more of the trip on Oasis, along with all the activities on board and a few tips I learned to make any voyage on Oasis a little easier!
