(5:00 a.m. EDT) -- Oasis of the Seas has come out of a two-week dry dock with a set of new features that include new restaurants, faster internet, new shops, a new Broadway show and additional suites and cabins.

The world's largest ship spent a fortnight in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, being remodeled to prepare for the launch of Royal Caribbean's 'Dynamic Dining' concept.

Instead of the main Opus dining room, Oasis of the Seas will offer passengers 20 restaurants to choose from, including the American Icon Grill, Silk, and The Grande which replace Opus across three decks of the ship. Dynamic Dining is slated to launch onboard Oasis on March 14, 2015, and cruises prior to that date will keep the traditional main dining room experience in the newly redesigned spaces.

Other new eateries onboard include: Izumi Hibachi & Sushi with a full teppanyaki menu, Sabor Taqueria & Tequila Bar, first introduced on Navigator of the Seas, Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine, offering avant garde dining, and Coastal Kitchen, a restaurant serving suite guests.

Oasis' internet offerings have also been upgraded with Royal Caribbean's 'Boatloads of Bandwidth' program, which sees the line partnering with O3b to offer land-like internet speeds. Additional tech offerings include the Royal iQ app that allows passengers to make reservations for restaurants, shore excursions and spa appointments.

A total of 10 new suites have been added to the ship overlooking the AquaTheater and Boardwalk 'neighbourhood,' and, in addition to the suite-only Coastal Kitchen eatery mentioned above, the line has put in a new exclusive lounge, The Suite Lounge, and sun deck area, The Sun Deck, just for suite passengers.

Sister ship Allure of the Seas will undergo the same makeover in May 2015.

Royal Caribbean announced the news this morning as the ship finished its dry dock in Rotterdam. Cruise Critic will join the ship in Rotterdam today and sail overnight to Southampton, UK, tomorrow for a first-look at the new features.
