Royal Caribbean Brings Urban Living Concept to Sea With Cruise Industry's First Lofts.
To say that cruise ship accommodations have evolved since the first staterooms were designed
would be an understatement. With Royal Caribbean International's next endeavor, Oasis of the Seas, the world's largest
and most revolutionary cruise ship, the urban living concept takes to the high seas with the introduction of industry-first
loft suites. The addition of the contemporary two-level suites will redefine cruise ship accommodations with vibrant,
ocean-inspired colors in a sophisticated setting.
The lofts will be the highest accommodations at sea and will offer spectacular views of the ocean with floor to
ceiling double-height windows to ensure the view will be enjoyed from every vantage point. Other features among
these coveted 28 lofts will be a unique modern design dotted with abstract, modern art pieces, spacious living areas on
the lower level with contemporary detailing, and a private balcony with sun chairs and stunning views to help guests
Each loft, which will measure 545 square feet (51 square meters) or larger when combined, and will be fitted in
contemporary décor with a Caribbean influence. The impressive design will include an upper-level bedroom that
overlooks the living area below and extended ocean views. Beds will be outfitted with white, luxurious duvets
complemented by tropical blue and green accents that tie in to the loft's natural surroundings. The lofts will feature
LCD televisions, separate vanity areas, a guest bathroom downstairs and master bathroom upstairs featuring his and her
shower heads, fog-free mirrors, and limestone mosaic tile accents.
