Oasis of the Seas Guest Stars on "Saturday Night Live"
Oasis of the Seas on Saturday Night Live (3:43 p.m. EST) -- Live from New York, it's ... Oasis of the Seas?

Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas may be only halfway to its new home in Fort Lauderdale, but it's already made its late-night television debut -- on NBC's sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live."

The ship was the butt of a joke during the show's popular Weekend Update segment. "The 20-story-tall Oasis of the Seas, the world's largest cruise ship, began her maiden voyage this week," cast member Seth Meyers announced during his "news brief" on the mega-ship. "Five times larger than the Titanic, it has seven neighborhoods, an ice rink, a golf course, a 750-seat outdoor amphitheater, and please say guns to fight off the pirates. No? No guns to fight off pirates? Well, enjoy your new boat, pirates!"

Missed Meyers' cruise quip on "SNL" this weekend? You can still watch the episode, hosted by songstress Taylor Swift, for free on Hulu or download it for $2.99 on iTunes. The Weekend Update segment begins 27 minutes into the program. Watch for Oasis at around 31:55!

As news outlets prepare to cover the long-awaited debut of the largest ship in the world, this is no doubt the tip of the media frenzy and pop culture iceberg. Stay tuned to Cruise Critic for live, interactive coverage starting November 19.
