Oasis of the Seas to Initially Call at Costa Maya instead of Falmouth

Royal Caribbean announced today that the upcoming port in Falmouth, Jamaica will not be ready in time for the debut of Oasis of the Seas, their highly anticipated "mega ship." Oasis of the Seas will be the world's largest cruise ship when she debuts later this year.

Royal Caribbean has indicated that the port in Falmouth should be ready by the time Oasis of the Seas embarks on her December 11, 2010 sailing. Not only will Oasis of the Seas feature this port, as her also under construction sister ship (Allure of the Seas) is also expected to call in Falmouth. Falmouth, located between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, will be a brand new port of call for Western Caribbean cruises. This port of call is being built, specifically with Royal Caribbean's upcoming Oasis-class vessels in mind, in a joint project between Royal Caribbean and Jamaica. Oasis of the Seas

Until the port in Falmouth is ready, Oasis of the Seas will call at Costa Maya, Mexico. Thus far, this unexpected change will cause 16 of Oasis of the Seas' itineraries to be altered. To look on the brighter side of this news, this should be great for Costa Maya, as it should bring much revenue to this small port of call that suffered much damage during 2007's Hurricane Dean (most of which has been rebuilt), and lost a lot of potential revenue due to the recent H1N1 (swine) flu problem.

Other ports of call that will be featured on the Western Caribbean itinerary of Oasis of the Seas are Labadee, Royal Caribbean's "private island" in Haiti, and Cozumel, Mexico. The Eastern Caribbean itinerary that will be featured by Oasis of the Seas will include ports of call in St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Nassau (Bahamas). Both itineraries will sail round trip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
