The first ever carousel-at-sea is the centerpiece of the Boardwalk neighborhood aboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas – the world’s largest cruise ship which takes it inaugural cruise in December 2009. Hand-crafted and especially designed by Carousel Works for Royal Caribbean International, this full-sized, traditional carousel is truly one-of-a-kind.

The Boardwalk Neighborhood on Oasis is designed to be a breathtaking space for families inspired by the nostalgic seaside boardwalks of yesteryear; so the carousel was created using inspiration from turn-of-the-century carousel designs down to the very last detail. Even the original artwork scenery panels located on the carousel’s eight Rounding Boards feature custom painted scenes to highlight the wistfulness of life on the historic boardwalks.

The carousel features eighteen figures suspended from stainless steel poles and one ADA accessible chariot that were created from poplar wood. Eleven of the figures are traditional style carousel horses that include the intricately designed Royal Caribbean lead armored horse, that even features the crown and anchor logo. The Oasis Carousel also
 
showcases a time-honored menagerie of animals such as a zebra, giraffe, jaguar elephant, lion and even a crowned frog prince. The stationary chariot is an elegant peacock.

In May 2009, the Carousel Works installation crew traveled to the shipyard in Turku, Finland in order to install the carousel aboard Oasis. The installation took approximately 2 weeks to complete.
