According to the company, a trail will be at the rear of the hotel, and it will feature two rock climbing walls, a classic whirlpool and an outdoor water theatre.
Swimming pools and sports areas will hold slides, jacuzzis, and surfing simulators. There will also be recreational basketball, volleyball, and miniature golf courses. At the same time, it will have a spa, a gym, a youth space and a teenagers club. A wide variety of platforms and events will be held in the entertainment district, including performances by “world-class artists,” original productions, and even snowboarding.
The launch of the cruise was postponed from 2021 to 2022 because of the impact of the epidemic on the closure of ports and shipyards worldwide. When it is completed, it will head straight to Shanghai, China and become the first Oasis-class cruise ship to set sail from Asia. Its routes will include Chan May in Vietnam, Busan and Jeju in Seoul, Cochin and Okinawa in Japan, and Taipei in Taiwan. Inaugural season tours are now available for reservation.
