When Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas debuts in December 2009, the world’s largest and most revolutionary ship will offer the most diverse lineup of dining options and guest activities available industry wide. The cruise line is combining both of those experiences with yet another exciting addition to Oasis of the Seas’ breadth of offerings with the first cupcake shop at sea, aptly named The Cupcake Cupboard.

Harking back to the days of baking in grandmother’s kitchen, the 1940’s-style shop will offer a wide array of the beloved delicacies and emphasize memorable family experiences including decorating cupcakes in various creative designs. A broad assortment of cupcakes will be offered daily at a la carte pricing, and specialty cupcakes and cupcake wedding cakes also will be available. Beyond its tempting and innovative menu, The Cupcake Cupboard, located in the Royal Promenade, also will provide a separate space for guests looking to celebrate special events—birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, and more.

The space also will host a variety of daily hands-on decorating classes where families can spend time together and learn the techniques behind cupcake decorating, from colorful sprinkles and icing to watercolors and candies. And guests will have the opportunity to take home the skills needed to create animal faces, sunflowers, snow globes, and more. There’s even the option of creating “pupcakes,” in honor of the family dog. Information on the classes, which are offered daily, can be found in the ship’s Daily Planner and are available to guests and groups of all ages at an additional charge.
