Wonder of the Seas Blocks Are In The House!

So circling back on topic...

 

Thanks for sharing the new name. It certainly fits their mantra in recent times.  Having already sailed Oasis (twice), Allure, and Harmony...Symphony & Melody will be on the "to do list" in the near future.

It's hard to tell but it sure looks like there are staterooms where the Windjammer should be, no aft facing loft suites, and some sort of interior space under the green "garden" area where the basketball court should be (maybe that's the Windjammer). There's a terraced outdoor pavilion where the starboard FlowRider should be.

Wondering if Oasis 5 will get the "Apex of the Seas" name (recently trademarked)...speculation only of course...

Apex of the Seas sounds like a name more likely for either Icon class or other Quantum class ships!

Apex is already the name of the next Celebrity ship - very unlikely RCI would use it also.

Maybe outdoor windjammer seating and a suite sundeck

You may be surprised to learn we've loved all 3 Oasis class ships so far (and rebooked again on Oasis in 2018)...and yet we're likely in the same "generation". Love those ships, and Symphony and then Oasis 5 will also be on the radar.

 

The beauty of these ships is that the port stops themselves become almost secondary to the ship itself, since there are so many great/fun things to do onboard (even in port if one wishes to ship disembarking).

I guess no one caught my hint in my previous post....

Oasis 5 will be called WONDER of the Seas...headed to China market.

Seriously....

You are trying to take credit for first mention of the eventual name in post #52?

 

Check out post #13!

Suggested Melody OTS for the name of Oasis 4 in the previous thread. Maybe that was a bit premature....

 

Melody, Symphony, Harmony..., has a nice ring to it, no??? Sounds like a Stevie Wonder song. 😕

No one's taking "credit" for anything...just noting one of several hints by multiple people in multiple threads on the name.

 

DUH.

It's been more than 10 years since the first Oasis Class ship, hence it's time for some major design / feature updates. However that there seem to be much more closed of areas reflects the needs for the Chinese / Asian market, who don't like to be outside / exposed to the sun. Nevertheless the Ship will have various open spaces such as the Central Park and Boardwalk, which stronlgy suggests that the ship is not ideal to be used in winter out of Shanghai which makes it realistic to assume that a seasonal deployment can be possible out of Singapore.

From CRIST S.A. shipyard:

 

Fully equipped sections and a floating block (Project C34), which are part of the great ship for the French Shipyard Chantiers De L'Atlantique, left our shipyard yesterday. Thank you to everyone involved in the project.
