Myer hits high seas with his sons
Bruce Myer, Realtor with Coldwell Banker Previews Real Estate Longboat Key, just returned from a cruise aboard MS Oasis of the Sea, visiting St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Nassau. He took his three sons as he has done throughout their life.
The MS Oasis of the Sea is an Oasis-Class cruise ship in the fleet of Royal Caribbean International. The first of her class, she was joined by her sister ship Allure of the Seas in December 2010. Both vessels cruise the Caribbean from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She set a new record of carrying more than 6,000 passengers.
The ship surpasses the Freedom Class cruise ships (also owned by Royal Caribbean) as the largest cruise ship in the world. She has, however, since been surpassed by her sister ship MS Allure of the Seas, which is two inches (51 mm) longer, although this difference may have been caused by the temperature of the ship at the time.
The MS Oasis of the Sea features a zip-line, a casino, a mini-golf course, multiple night clubs, several bars and lounges, a karaoke club, a comedy club, five swimming pools, volleyball and basketball courts, theme parks and nurseries for children.
