New ships on the way for CCL and RCI

Just saw this article come across my puter. Looks like good times are ahead on the Vista and Harmony of the Seas

Look forward to seeing them someday.

Hopefully I get to get on one.

On the other hand, I hate it when a video starts playing in the sidebar of the linked article, with the volume at the earbleed level, and the boss is walking bySurprised

Here’s a list of new cruise ship orders for the next eight years. The huge size of vessels might just have topped out, looks like the Oasis Class ships for RCL, @ 227,000 gross tons will hold the record for the next decade or more. Won’t be until 2020 when a 201,000 gross ton ship is placed into service.

Great link, Kennicott.  That is a lot of new capacity and based on another thread that shows softening demand, it probably is a good sign that lower prices will be with us for several years. 

 

Do you have any links on retiring ship capacity?  I must be a lousy googler because after a half dozen searches I could not find anything that was comprehensive. 

Yeah, that NSFW applies to volume too.

 

Adding to bucket list.

I got an email from my second job... Looks like NY is looking for help with the vista and check in... I threw my hat in the ring if they provide a bus... We will see! (maybe I can get on the ship)

Here is the latest I can find. As you can see, about half of these are headed for the scrapyards in Turkey and India. I know the Costa Concordia is in a drydock boneyard in Genoa but I don’t see any “Italian Breakers” listed here. http://www.seatrade-cruise.com/orderbook-79/sale-a-purchase-127.html

I'm booked on the Vista for end or April  Big Smile  counting the months at this point.

Don’t you just love a new cruise ship?Love  So many ships so little time!Big Smile
