Oasis of the Seas' AquaTheater, located at the stern of the ship, will offer innovative activities both day and night. The amphitheater-style space will adjoin the Boardwalk neighborhood (technically part of the Boardwalk) and is focused on the celebration of water.
By day, the AquaTheater functions as a pool and lounge area. Passengers can swim in the kidney-shaped pool, which will be the largest and deepest (almost 18 feet deep) freshwater pool at sea or sunbathe on loungers along the tiered platforms surrounding the pool. SCUBA lessons will also be offered in the pool during the afternoon. A daytime show, Splish Splash, will be more comedic in nature (and aimed at the family).
At night, the area transforms into a theatrical venue with seating for 600. Oasis Dream, a water show synchronized to music and lights, will take place in the pool (think the Bellagio fountains in Vegas) with hundred of water nozzles shooting water up to 65 feet high. Acrobatics and high-diving will take place in and around the pool. Two diving towers above the pool will be connected by a bridge, with a trapeze behind and a trampoline between, allowing gymnasts and aerialists to perform impressive feats in the air then dismount into the pool.
The pool itself will have custom-built lifts so the depth can rise or fall (deep for high diving, shallow for water ballet). Plus, underwater cameras will film performers when they're out of sight of the audience and broadcast the images onto two giant LED screens flanking the stage.
For passengers who don't want to be far from all the goings-on, a new class of suites, called Aqua Suites, will flank the Aqua Theater. The balconies from these six cabins will allow for private viewing of the nightly performances.
