Rihanna, Future Cruise Ship Performer?

Whoever said that cruising isn't cool? Okay, aside from us? Well, with the launch of Royal Caribbean's new megaship so ginormous it might as well be named the Death Star but is instead called Oasis of the Seas, the image of cruising might be taking a turn for the better. Of course, that is only if you like spending your vacation afloat with 5,399 others who enjoy all the bells and whistles of a traditional cruise times three.

Aside from a zip line, mini Central Park, AquaTheater and cupcake cafe, the Oasis is bringing Rihanna on board. No—not a lookalike, the real deal. Rihanna will do the first performance from her upcoing album "Rated R" on board the ship's 3-day preview cruise on November 19. The album doesn't release until Monday November 23, but the lucky press and invited guests on the preview cruise will get an early piece of the new RiRi stuff.

When Rihanna inaugurates the AquaTheater with her performance, the ship will be fully functional and ready to cruise. Although the average Oasis cruiser shouldn't expect a Rihanna encore, they will be privy to a huge variety of specially-produced shows including the Broadway musical Hairspray and a synchronized swimming show. USA Today's Cruise Log has the full details.

We recommend keeping an eye to YouTube on November 20 for amateur camera-video captures of RiRi's Oasis performance.
