It’s yet to be finished, but with these artistic renderings, we get to see inside of the future record holder for the world’s largest ship, a serious competitor for another maritime wonder, Liberty of the Seas. Oasis of the Sea will be a luxurious traveling city, complete with shopping streets, bars, restaurants, an amphitheater the size of a football field. And if this didn’t blow you away, the ship is also equipped with its own micro-climate and rock-climbing walls. It will weigh around 220,000 tonne, be 1,081ft long and have 16 passenger decks.
The ship is currently in construction in Aker Yards in Turku, Finland and will cost an estimated £610million. Oasis of the Sea is expected hit the ocean in late 2009, and construction of its sister ship, Allure of the Seas, is due to begin shortly.
