What fun cupcake news! From Leisure Group Travel:
When Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas debuts in December 2009, the world’s largest ship will offer a diverse lineup of dining and snack options, including the first cupcake shop at sea.
Aptly named The Cupcake Cupboard, the 1940s-style shop will offer a wide array of the baked delicacies decorated in various creative designs. A broad assortment of cupcakes will be offered daily at a la carte pricing, and specialty cupcakes and cupcake wedding cakes also will be available. Beyond its tempting and innovative menu, The Cupcake Cupboard, located in the Royal Promenade, will provide a separate space for guests looking to celebrate special events—birthdays, anniversaries and reunions.
The space also will host a variety of daily hands-on decorating classes where families can spend time together and learn the techniques behind cupcake decorating, from colorful sprinkles and icing to watercolors and candies. There’s even the option of creating “pupcakes,” in honor of the family dog. Information on the classes, which are offered daily, can be found in the ship’s Daily Planner and are available at an additional charge.
Oasis of the Seas will span 16 decks, encompass 225,282 gross registered tons (GRT), carry 5,400 guests at double occupancy and feature 2,700 staterooms. Oasis of the Seas will be the first ship to tout the cruise line’s new neighborhood concept of seven distinct themed areas, which include Central Park, Boardwalk, the Royal Promenade, the Pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center and Entertainment Place.
The ship will sail from her home port of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
