It has just been announced by Royal Caribbean that a sixth Oasis class mega cruise ship is due to be delivered in autumn 2023.
Parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd revealed on February 18th that it has entered into an agreement with French shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique to order the latest vessel in the fleet.
The ships are slated to cost more than $1 billion each to build with a guest-capacity of 6,680 passengers.
The Oasis class ships made their debut a decade ago, beginning with Oasis of the Seas and followed by Allure of the Seas.
Royal’s fifth Oasis-class ship is due for delivery in spring 2021 with the newly-announced sixth due for 2023.
RCCL chairman and CEO Richard Fain said: “It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Oasis-class ship.
This order is a reflection of the exceptional performance of this vessel class and the extraordinary partnership between Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.”
The French shipyard’s general manager Laurent Castaing added: “This is the 23rd cruise ship that Royal Caribbean will be building at our shipyard, and we are especially proud of it.
The order reflects the confidence our customer puts on us, based on the exceptional quality of our long-term co-operation between the two companies and on our capacity to bring innovative solutions to meet our customer’s expectations.”
Earlier this month, the line confirmed the name of the 27th ship in the fleet due to launch in fall 2020: Odyssey of the Seas.
The vessel will be the second in Royal’s Quantum Ultra class, joining Spectrum of the Seas which will debut spring this year.
