Work on area of deck 14 & 15 area above the bridge.

In the 1st photo from Royal Caribbean's Press Center, some large sections are visible. In the second photo, the edge of a large section can be seen in the foreground.

Is that part of the teen's area (The Living Room and The Back Deck) getting moved elsewhere, or is the teen's space simply being consolidated to just Fuel?

No new teen areas listed on the deck plans.

What is going on top of the bridge wings? I really enjoyed going out the door on deck 14 forward and hanging out on the bridge wing. Sunsets and coming into dock in particular.

I hope they add the glass like harmony and symphony on the side wings.

They are adding a cabin over top of the bridge wings.

Originally I thought the bridge wings would be the balconies for the new suites, but it appears they are completely double-decking the bridge including the bridge wings.  This means there should still be open bridge wings on Deck 15, and the new suites will completely encompass the bridge wings, with the balcony just behind the bridge wing area.

How are they able to add so many new cabins with regards to life boat occupancy?

 

They had extra capacity in the lifeboats.

The Back Deck (outside area) and The Living Room are being replaced by Portside BBQ. The only teens area left will be the former Fuel (plus the Challengers Arcade). I remember that my DD said that hardly any teens showed up and most of the activities never happened anyway. So maybe the space was underused.

 

But they also cut down the space now used by Adventure Ocean on deck 14 forward to add cabins.

There is now a "Secret Entrance" with a "Back Deck" area. Where will the ping-pong be? I really hope they keep ping-pong, as it is my brother's favorite activity.

The Ping Pong was a separate area from "The Back Deck". There were two glass enclosed ovals with three ping pong tables each. I´m pretty sure that one will go away but the other will stay.

I think they will keep both of them. On the top, is the Oasis (post dry-dock deck plans), and the bottom, Symphony. See how Symphony of the Seas only labels one of the Table Tennis ovals. And since Portside BBQ will basically replace The Living Room, and on the Harmony, there was a basically unused part of the teens space that I think either might be the secret entrance on Oasis, or part of Portside BBQ.

I've heard that the Champagne Bar will be replaced with a Bionic bar. What a crime!

Nah... getting that one drink at Bionic bar is the coolest... then you realize that you paid WAY too much for a Long Island and you sink into a depression.

 

At least you get a cool "show!"

I don't know if this is the case with Oasis of the Seas, but during the recent refurbishment of the Celebrity Summit, they reduced the maximum occupancy of numerous existing cabins. Cabins such as the one we were in went from having a sofabed to just a sofa. That reduced the maximum occupancy by one. That, when combined with the excess lifeboat capacity, allowed them to add more cabins without adding lifeboats.

Does somebody still publish the public space to passenger ratio on ships? Royal used to lead the major lines.

@jbethel11 on the Symphony there´s only one oval for table tennis as the other space is used by EL Loco Fresh as seating area. On the Oasis the one located near El Loco Fresh might be gone. The Back Deck will be the al fresco seating area for Portside BBQ. The oval is next to The Back Deck so it might stay there. Still not sure what you are referring to "the secret entrance". There´s an entrance to The Fuel from the outer deck but you can also access it from the inside. And there´s an exit from The Living Room to The Back Deck.

It was mentioned in the press release along with a new outdoor teen area. 
 

 

Teens can rejoice in their more off-the-grid hangout. With exclusive features like a “hidden” entrance, gaming lounge, movies, music, and a new, laidback outdoor deck, teens are free to engage however and whenever without interruption.

But then they have to move the outdoor area to the middle... I don´t see that there is enough space for it.
