Oasis to Feature Aerostat (Hot Air Balloon)
June 8, 2009
So the Oasis departed for her sea trials. Sea Trials last a few days off the coast of Finland. Their purpose is to test the systems and abilities of the ship in an open ocean environment. Typically there will be two per ship.
Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas left on it’s with a special guest. A hot Air balloon tethered to the ship. The intent will be to give guests a view like none other. See for your self. I assure these photos have not been edited, as hard as it is to believe.
UPDATE 4:44pm: Royal Caribbean CEO Richard Fain states: “I will comment on one experiment we are performing which has already been the subject of some rumors. This idea is to put an aerostat onboard tethered to the ship. The idea is interesting, but it has such a cornucopia of practical issues that I give it less than a 50% chance of being used on Oasis.”
