Oasis of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, arrived at its home port in New Jersey on Thursday morning. The ship is set to make a test cruise into the Atlantic Ocean this weekend before it begins service to guests in May.

The Oasis of the Seas has landed in New Jersey in preparation for her maiden test voyage this weekend. After the epidemic, the Oasis-class ship will be the first to depart from New Jersey’s Cape Liberty Cruise Port.
The previous world’s biggest cruise ship will be the last of the four Oasis-class ships to relaunch; Harmony of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, and Symphony of the Seas having all done so in recent weeks. On September 5, 2021, Oasis of the Seas will sail for the first time with paying passengers on a seven-night cruise from Cape Liberty.
The Oasis of the Seas landed at the Cape Liberty Cruise Port on August 19 at 7:30 a.m. after arriving in New Jersey.
First, Oasis will go on a test cruise.
For quite some time, Royal Caribbean has been preparing the return of Oasis of the Seas. The cruise company got approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to begin sailing test trips with the first of four Oasis-class ships at the end of June.
The ship will make her maiden test voyage from the Cape Liberty Cruise Port in Bayonne, New Jersey. The cruise company will be sailing a test cruise from Cape Liberty for the first time, which may explain why it is taking a bit longer than normal. On August 22, 2021, the Oasis of the Seas will set sail and return to port on August 28, 2021.
The ship will get the Conditional Sailing Certificate after the CDC is pleased with the procedures Royal Caribbean has established aboard. As a result, revenue cruises will be permitted to continue on the ship.

Strict Health Requirements for the Bahamas Itinerary
Starting September 5, the 226,838-ton Oasis of the Seas will embark on a seven-day voyage from Cape Liberty, New Jersey, to the Bahamas.
She’ll stop at Port Canaveral, Florida, for a Perfect Day at CocoCay, and Nassau, Bahamas, before sailing back to Cape Liberty, New Jersey, for another two nights. Before this week, that schedule would have been one of the most simple. However, things have changed.
The Bahamas has issued a new executive order prohibiting any cruise ships from entering the country unless all passengers have received complete vaccinations. While Royal Caribbean has always said that it prefers to sail with both vaccinated and unvaccinated passengers, this cannot be the case any more.
As a result, visitors aged 12 and above must provide evidence of COVID-19 immunization, with the last dosage given at least 14 days before to sailing. Guests aged two and above must also undergo a COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) with an authorized test provider three days before to the trip.
