Balcony cabins overlooking the Boardwalk district of Oasis class ships

Royal Caribbean has added some incentives to reward guests booking balcony cabins overlooking the Central Park and Boardwalk regions of its largest Oasis class ships including Allure of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas and the forthcoming Harmony of the Seas.

Valid on sailings departing from 01 November onwards, guests in balcony cabins overlooking the Central Park “neighbourhood” of the ships will receive one lunch for two at the Jamie’s Italian specialty restaurant with a bottle of wine on arrival and a number of undisclosed perks in the ship’s casino.

Those with Boardwalk views from their private balcony will enjoy one complimentary lunch or dinner for two at Johnny Rockets (which offers all-you-can-eat for one flat cover price per person), a soft-drink beverage package for the duration of the cruise for two people and a private session on the ship’s rock climbing wall.

Royal Caribbean’s Oasis-Class ships offer two types of balcony cabins – those with a traditional direct ocean view on the outside of the ship and those with a balcony overlooking the inner open-air promenade. The Central Park and Boardwalk regions are at opposite ends of the ship on the same level.

Different again are interior cabins which offer no view at all.

Along with the additional perks, Royal Caribbean announced overnight that its popular DreamWorks experience, which sees characters from movies including Shrek, Puss In Boots, Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar strolling the ship interacting with guests, participating in organised events and making themselves available to pose for photos. DreamWorks characters are also available on four other Royal Caribbean ships including Voyager of the Seas, which sails in Australian waters each summer.

The ship’s Adventure Ocean Kids Club will also be enhanced on Harmony of the Seas, with the debut of an exciting new black light puppet show entitled ‘Away We Go’. The show has been designed by Tony Award-nominated actors and producers John Tartaglia by and Michael Shawn Lewis of Gable Grove Productions.

Harmony of the Seas is currently in the final stages of construction and will debut in May.
