How many ships?

In the next 9 years there will be a further 92 ships sailing the high seas with capacity for over 252000 people!

MSC have the most orders with 11 ships and NCL come a close second with 7 ships.

China will have 10 of these ships dedicated to them only and 18 of the ships will be smaller Expedition Ships.

14% of the new ships will be powered by LNG which is Liquid Nitrogen Gas and is a much cleaner fuel than those currently being used although I would have thought this should be a higher percentage.

The largest ship trophy will still be with Royal Caribbean with 2 ships with tonnages of 227650 and 227625 and 5400 passengers each, whilst the smallest will be operated by Expedition Company – Antarctica XX1 at just 4900 tons and 100 passengers.

It’s also great to see some new names to the Cruise Industry such as Virgin and hotel chain Ritz-Carlton.

Is there a particular ship you can’t wait for?
