World’s largest cruise ship glides into port

November 14, 2009


— Oasis of the Seas, larger than life on the ocean’s horizon Friday morning, swaggered into Port Everglades, Fla., sounding her horn as a crowd of onlookers at John U. Lloyd State Park beach let out a cheer.

The world’s largest cruise ship was accompanied by a flotilla of small boats and doused by water cannons as she headed into her new home port.

Dana Steinberg, a retired merchant marine from Hollywood, Fla., arrived early at the park Friday to behold the mammoth ship, which has seven neighborhoods, including a Boardwalk reminiscent of Coney Island. The ship has not one, but two rock-climbing walls, an ice-skating rink, and 24 specialty restaurants among an array of entertainment and activities.
