Surrounded by Small Wonders on Oasis of the Seas

Filed under: Reviews

While Royal Caribbean ships are known for their extensive art galleries, you may not realize that you are surrounded by art all the time when you sail with Royal Caribbean!

The art installation Small Wonders onboard Oasis of the Seas has been one of my favorites and I find it to be one of the more interactive and engaging. Once we discovered it our whole family, kids included, were hooked!

If you have some downtime or just want a fun little “I Spy” game to play throughout the week, I strongly recommend keeping your eyes peeled for Small Wonders. They’re all around you!

Small Wonders embraces everyday beauty from nature. The exhibit includes 42 “small wonders” throughout the ship. Can you find them all? I’ve shared some of my favorites below.

There are many left to discover with an (almost complete) list below!
