Royal Caribbean International (Miami) has unveiled the names of the retailers that will operate stores onboard its newest ship, Oasis of the Seas, which is slated to set sail in December.

• In the “Royal Promenade” zone: Prince & Greene, Regalia, Solera and Willow.
• In the “Boardwalk” zone: Candy Beach, Carousel Cart, Pinwheels and Star Pier.
• In the “Pool and Sports” zone: Breeze.
“We are consistently pushing the envelope with the retail selection offered on our cruise ships, and with Oasis of the Seas we sought out to fully transform the shopping experience at sea by introducing new brands and new concepts,” said Lisa Bauer, RCI’s senior vp, hotel operations. “We've been fortunate to gain the support of a number of iconic brands that are eager to be part of the Oasis experience and are pleased that we can deliver upon guest feedback to offer more shopping opportunities onboard."
