Royal Caribbean has announced that it has entered into an agreement with French shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique to order a sixth Oasis-class ship for delivery in the Autumn of 2023.
The Royal Caribbean ship is yet to be named and will be among the largest cruise ships in the world like sister ships Symphony of the Seas, Harmony of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.
Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd 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.
Laurent Castaing, General Manager, Chantiers de l’Atlantique also went on to say:
This is the twenty-third cruise ship that RCL 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.
This order is contingent upon financing, which is expected to be completed in the second or third quarter of this year.
