Oasis of the Seas' Pool and Sports Zone is located above the Central Park and Boardwalk neighborhoods atop the rows of cabins that flank them port and starboard, offering views below to both (there's even a bridge connecting the two sides). It encompasses many of the same features found on Freedom- and Voyager-class ships -- including the rock-climbing wall and mini-golf areas -- but there are new twists as well including:
The signature sports deck will feature not one but two FlowRiders (with the Wipeout Bar between them, as well as a Wipeout cafe serving burgers and dogs); a pool dedicated to sporting events such as volleyball and pool jousting; a mini-golf course; dual rock-climbing walls (that extend up from the Boardwalk); a basketball court; and a zip-line.
The H20 Zone is back with a fun new water feature -- an oversized octopus whose tentacles spout water.
The ship's new Beach Pool features colorful beach umbrellas that create a resort feel. In total, Oasis of the Seas will feature four pools and 10 whirlpools.
There will be 10 private cabanas -- 5 overlooking the Beach Pool, 5 overlooking the Sports Pool -- featuring dedicated attendants.
The adults-only solarium has been moved to the bow of the ship, allowing it to be much larger yet quieter, with a great view to sea and "islands" of seating areas scattered through water features that will give the feeling of being in an actual, you guessed it -- oasis. The Solarium Bistro will feature healthy breakfasts in the morning and will transform into an alternate eatery for romantic dinners and dancing under the stars in the evenings. And even later into the night, this area will transform once again into Club 20, which is already a big hit with passengers on RCI's Freedom-class ships.
