Oasis of the Seas officially named

2 December 2009

The naming ceremony for the world's largest cruise ship has taken place.

Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas welcomed celebrity guests, including its seven godmothers, during an elaborate function.

In an innovative twist to the traditional maritime convention, the cruise ship appointed Gloria Estefan, Daisy Fuentes, Shawn Johnson, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Michelle Kwan, Jane Seymour and Dara Torres to represent the seven neighbourhoods onboard.

Other stars attending the bash were former NBA basketball player Michael Jordan and Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Karina Smirnoff.

Celebrations took place throughout Oasis of the Seas and concluded with a fireworks display, which followed the customary Champagne bottle-breaking ritual.

"Oasis of the Seas is the largest and most revolutionary cruise ship in the world," Royal Caribbean stated.

Writing for the The Times, Stephen Bleach recently noted that the liner is "undeniably impressive" and is the perfect choice for those who like keeping themselves busy.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19492054-ADNFCR
