Of appeal to discerning, cosmopolitan guests – couples, families and solo travellers alike – EUROPA 2 has been built combining the very best of contemporary, modern design concepts, while providing every amenity expected of a truly luxurious cruise experience. No detail has been spared in the creation of a modern and informal interpretation of luxury cruising – choice and individuality of lifestyle being paramount.
Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas was designed with technology in mind to make the ship easier to navigate for the passengers and crew onboard through tools like RFID, facial recognition and handheld wireless devices for a variety of purposes, including emergency responses, food safety, point-of-sale (POS) transactions and passenger service.
