Oasis of the Seas Photos: Final Construction Stages

October 23, 2009
(11:15 a.m. EDT) -- Cruise Critic contributor Christer Gorschelnik visited Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas yesterday in Turku, Finland. The ship, which is just a week from its departure from the STX Shipyard there, is still clearly in the final throes of construction, but you can see some nice detail.

STX Europe is definitely in send-off mode, opening up Oasis for pre-completion tours to Finland VIPs. Once the ship leaves its berth there, it will travel across the Atlantic on an express trip to Ft. Lauderdale's Port Everglades. It is expected to arrive in South Florida on November 11.
