What's that rising above deck 16 behind the Solarium on the Oasis 3 in this rendering ...

 

 

 

(Thanks to Matthew Brand for finding this great rendering)

Also note the glass behind the wave breaker, what could that be? Outdoor smoking area like on Quantum or a restaurant?

I'm pretty sure someone stated on another thread that this was fake and a photoshop job

If they did, they're wrong. That image came from the STX website (STX is building Oasis 3 and 4) although they have since removed it. You can see it on the archive of the STX website at http://web.archive.org/web/20140323004219/http://stxfrance.fr//UK/stxfrance-reference-34-OASIS%203.awp

Thank you for the link!! I was trying to locate the photos on the STX Europe website.

Looks like the blimp mooring from original design. :D

Slide is a nice touch

I'm sure that the walkers & runners on the track there on deck 5 would appreciate that. ;)

Just because it's from the STX website doesn't mean that it's what the final product will look like. Could just be an artist at STX France drew it up and added 'cool things' to what he had to work with.

 

I'm not saying that Oasis 3 and 4 won't have slides, but Royal hasn't done them before on that scale and didn't do them on Quantum.

Slides are more of a warm weather feature, better suited for oasis class

True, but Royal hasn't done bumper cars, virtual skydiving and anything like the North Star before. There's always a first time. :)

This is 100% correct! However, keep in mind that they also tend not to go the direction that other cruiselines go. Hence things like Flowrider, bumper cars, iFly, North Star and a wave pool.

 

If there are water slides expect them to be different in some way from everyone else. :)

Yes, I expect the slides to drop everyone that uses them into the ocean. This also serves a dual purpose of creating shorter lines as the cruise goes on, something I fully support.

I'm just trying to think how a slide would work on Oasis class, it would block a lot of light into the central "park" area and I would assume would mean that the zip line would need to be removed

And we experienced with Quantum that renderings don't have to show the real product. Royal Caribbean still uses renderings for advertising that don't show the ship the way it actually looks like.

 

Nevertheless, at this point, the rendering gives us the best idea of how this ships will be like and what they offer.

Zip line is at Boardwalk I think.

 

Slide could go into central park, then through rising tide opening and along promenade ceiling and end up in aqua theatre pool. It could be clear like Atlantis.

 

I'd pay for that

Looks like they're revamping the aft.

 

With that said and looking at the upper aft area, what could be hanging on the very end of deck 15?

Subbing. I, too, am more interested in the Oasis III build than Quantum Class. I certainly hope the moderators give the Oasis new builds a place among the "stickys"

I would like to see a lazy river, complete with inner tubes to relax in and float around the perimeter of the pool deck.

Drink in hand, moved along by the gentle current, from bow to stern throughout the day.

Indoor Skiing?

 

The new 'little blue pill' lounge? :eek:

Very excited for the water slides, I think this is something that royal has failed to keep up with the pool areas on allure were pretty underwhelming even the kids pool; Norwegian and carnival have set a high bar for slides.
