Oasis of the Seas entering Keppel Verolme shipyard in Rotterdam
Oasis of the Seas is currently in the Keppel Verolme shipyard in Rotterdam undergoing a planned five-year routine maintenance. Built in 2009, it is the vessel’s first drydocking and part of a first return visit to Europe since leaving the shipyard in Finland. Oasis arrived in Europe last month for a short series of cruises ex-Barcelona.

The Royal Caribbean International vessel arrived in Rotterdam last week and will stay in drydock for almost two weeks before departing from Rotterdam Cruise Terminal on October 14 for a 13-night trans-Atlantic cruise to Port Everglades, including a UK stopover in Southampton to pick up passengers on the following day.

When 225,282gt Oasis of the Seas arrives in Southampton on October 15, it will be 40% larger than any other cruise ship to ever dock in the UK.
