Tiffany & Co. to open boutique aboard Royal Caribbean ship

Devotees of shiny items that come in those pale aqua Tiffany boxes will soon find them at sea.

Tiffany & Co will open the first ever free-standing shipboard boutique on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. The 875-squre-foot shop will be decked with marble, polish metals velvet drapes and upholstered walls. Watches and jewelry will be on offer --including engagement rings for those stuck with a wave of romance. The boutique will be located, appropriately, near the ship’s Central Park zone.

“We are delighted that Royal Caribbean guests will now have the opportunity to explore Tiffany’s legendary collections in an environment of luxury and service that is unique among the world’s premier jewelers,” said Luciano Rodembusch, vice president of Tiffany & Co. Latin America. “For 178 years we have been creating the most beautiful love stories and Oasis of the Seas offers a unique and memorable setting.”

With more than 5,400, Oasis of the Seas and its sister ships rank as the world’s largest cruise ships. It sails on 7-night Caribbean itineraries from PortEverglades. In fall of 2016, it will begin sailing from Port Canaveral.
