NEW YORK, November 19, 2015 – Tiffany & Co. today announced its first ever free-standing boutique at sea onboard Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas. The store is located in the ship’s lush Central Park neighborhood and will offer a full selection of Tiffany jewelry, including engagement rings and the recently introduced Tiffany T and Atlas collections, as well as Swiss made CT60 watches.
“We are delighted that Royal Caribbean guests will now have the opportunity to explore Tiffany’s legendary collections in an environment of luxury and service that is unique among the world’s premier jewelers,” said Luciano Rodembusch, vice president of Tiffany & Co. Latin America. “For 178 years we have been creating the most beautiful love stories and Oasis of the Seas offers a unique and memorable setting.”
The Tiffany & Co. boutique [to be operated by Royal Caribbean International] will extend 875 square feet and feature meticulous attention to detail and noble materials, including marble, glossy lacquers, polished metals, cerused walnut paneling, velvet drapery and upholstered walls. Tiffany’s rich heritage is a constant source of inspiration, as is Tiffany’s strong connection to the glamour of New York City.
“Nothing can compare to the Oasis-class vacation experience, a testament to Royal Caribbean’s 40 year legacy of innovation,” said Mark Tamis, senior vice president, Hotel Operations, Royal Caribbean International. “Tiffany & Co. is a distinguished global luxury brand and having a boutique on board will truly enrich the premium onboard experience for our guests. From surprising your loved one with a timeless keepsake to popping the question with the perfect engagement ring, what better way to remember a cruise adventure of a lifetime.”
Much like Tiffany’s flagship Fifth Avenue store which is nestled near the lush gardens of Central Park in New York City, the Tiffany & Co. boutique onboard Oasis of the Seas will feel right at home within the ship’s sophisticated neighborhood of the same name.
In addition to the Central Park neighborhood with more than 12,000 live trees and plants, guests onboard Oasis of the Seas can delight in exclusive amenities and concepts throughout the other themed neighborhoods, such as an 82 foot-long zip line, a handcrafted carousel, the Rising Tide elevating bar, Broadway musicals and the Aquatheater high-diving performance venue. Oasis of the Seas also offers amenities that can only be found on Royal Caribbean, such as twin FlowRider surf simulators, cantilevered whirlpools, an ice-skating rink, the H20 Zone kids aquapark, and the Royal Promenade, an interior boulevard that stretches nearly the length of the ship and is flanked by restaurants, lounges and boutiques, among many others.
Guests can sail on the world’s largest ship – the Caribbean’s most innovative – on seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale. In fall 2016, Oasis of the Seaswill begin sailing from Port Canaveral, alternating a seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itinerary.
