Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas: Inside the world’s largest and most expensive ever cruise ship. It took six years and cost over 800 million pounds to build. And now the Oasis of the Seas will finally be launched into the ocean with the maiden voyage set for December.At a mighty 225,282 grt, the Oasis of the Seas, which can accommodate up to 6,296 passengers, is almost twice as large as any other cruise ship to dock in the UK.

It is 208ft wide and 1,187ft long, so longer than the Shard is tall

The ship contains 3,300 miles of electrical cables -roughly the width of the U.S. 110,231 pounds of ice cubes are made daily.

Central Park has 12,500 plants, 62 vine plants, 56 trees and bamboo. The AquaTheater pool is 17.9 feet deep and is one of the largest pool at sea.

4.7 million pounds of fresh water are consumed in 24 hours. The ship has 7,000 works of specially commissioned artwork. There are 20 chefs, 222 cooks and 102 sanitation and cleaning culinary crew. All breads and pastries are made fresh onboard. The bakery has a machine that makes 4,000 rolls an hour.
