Here is a short aerial video of the Oasis of the Seas showing off the external enhancements that were made during her amplification in Spain. The Renovations happened in October and November which transformed the ship internally and externally. The $165 Million dollar refit incorporated all of the latest features found in subsequent ships of the Oasis Class.

Cruise Under the Lowest Bridges

Blount Small Ships have been built with the purpose of bringing travelers to places that larger ships simply cannot go, with patented designs that allow our ships to slip, with inches to spare, under the lowest bridges on a canal, and fit through tight transit locks. It was all thanks to Luther’s invention — the Retractable Pilot House.

It was the first glimmer of what would become the Blount Bow Ramp, an invention you see on our ships today.

Dock with the Yachts

The video above is a great example of the ocean liners of yesterday. This video is of one of my favorite ships, Greek Line's TSS Olympia. The Olympia was built in Galscow Scotland in 1953 and carried passengers and cargo across the atlantic to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean.
