Royal Caribbean orders sixth Oasis-class ship

Royal Caribbean International has ordered a sixth Oasis-class ship, due to be delivered in 2023.

The as yet unnamed vessel will join Oasis, Allure, Harmony and Symphony of the Seas. A fifth Oasis-class ship will launch in 2021.

“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.”

The Oasis-class ships are known for breaking the record for the biggest cruise ship in the world.

“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 shipbuilder that has been contracted to construct the sixth Oasis-class ship.

“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 customers’ expectations.”

This order is contingent upon financing, which is expected to be completed in the second or third quarter
of this year.
