Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, is partially powered by solar energy.

The Oasis of the Seas was built with as many environmentally conscious technologies as possible. At the top of the list – and at the top of the ship – are over 550 solar panels that generate the power needed on the Royal Promenade–one of the ship’s seven neighborhoods featuring eight retail outlets, nine restaurants and bars, a photo gallery, and men’s salon. BAM Solar Power, a Miami-based solar design and installation company installed the panels.
