Royal Caribbean Orders Another Mega-Ship
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has announced that they have ordered a sixth Oasis class ship for their Royal Caribbean International brand.
The vessel is scheduled to be delivered in fall 2023 by the French shipbuilder Chantiers de I’Antlantique. "It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Oasis-class ship," said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. "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."
"This is the twenty-third cruise ship that RCL will be building at our shipyard, and we are especially proud of it," said Laurent Castaing, General Manager, Chantiers de l'Atlantique. "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."
Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class ships are engineering marvels and wildly popular among active, fun-loving families and adults. Not only are they unique because they are the largest cruise ships in the world, but the ships are also divided into unique neighborhoods, including a New York City-inspired Central Park area, a sports and activity zone, and a mall-like promenade, among others. Current Oasis-class ships boast zip lines, ice skating rinks, 10-deck high slides, FlowRider surfing simulators, and dozens of dining options and bars.
The shipbuilding order is contingent upon financing, which will be completed later this year.
