Luxury line Crystal has spilled the first details about its new Diamond-Class ships, including renderings of the exterior design.
The ships will be built by the MV Werften shipyard in Stralsund, Germany with the first scheduled to debut in 2022, carrying 800 passengers.
It will be of similar tonnage to the 68,000-tonne Crystal Serenity at 67,000 gross tonnes, but with fewer passengers as Serenity will carry 980 passengers which will be down from 1,070 after its fall 2018 refurbishment.
As part of the revamp, the ship will feature new penthouses and penthouse suites aswell.
“Our ocean ships are the heart of the Crystal brand and have been loved by our guests for more than 28 years,” Tom Wolber, Crystal Cruises president and CEO, said in a company statement.
“We are delighted to expand this celebrated fleet with amenities and spaces that our guests have come to love along with more choices and new experiences that will take luxury to the next level.”
The Diamond-Class ships will be the first new builds in Crystal’s classic ocean cruise fleet since Crystal Serenity debuted in 2003.
The line’s river cruise arm has also debuted four new-builds in 2017 and 2018, and a brand-new expedition yacht, Crystal Endeavor, will launch in 2020.
