Cruise ships these days... What don't they have? You can install real grass one deck for a 12-hole putt-putt course, turn the funnel into a rock climbing wall, and even create an entire planetarium at sea in a modern boat. Just as cruise lines continue upping the ante with onboard amenities, they're also constantly reinventing typical cruise offerings, and yesthis includes the all-you-can-eat buffets.
Royal Caribbean is introducing free chocolate breakfast across their entire fleet, as they have just finished testing the idea on their largest and newest boat: Oasis of the Seas.

The brand new, unbelievably huge Oasis of the Seas cruise ship has been rocked by some serious waves on its first voyage. As USA Today points out, the 5,400-passenger vessel encountered hurricane-strength winds and waves over 60 feet high in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. Fortunately for the cruise line, there aren't any passengers on board, as Royal Caribbean is merely transporting it from the shipyard in Turku, Finland to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for its inaugural cruise. But while many passengers would have likely gotten seasick, they wouldn't have been in any serious peril, as the ship has weathered the waves quite smartly. For maximum stability, Captain William Wright has slowed the world's largest cruise ship down and steered it head-on into the waves. He probably wouldn't admit it, but I bet he's having fun.
