These six ships, (two Oasis class, two Quantum class, and two Icon class) will all go into service in the next seven years and promise to raise the standard by which all current mega cruise ships are measured. After the successful debut of their 3rd Oasis class ship (Harmony of the Seas) this past year, here are the six ships that Royal Caribbean has coming out in the next seven years.
The Oasis class ships are the largest cruise ships in the world and the 4th and 5th of the class will likely keep with tradition and be ever so slightly larger than the previous ship. While Royal Caribbean has yet to make an official announcement regarding the name of the 4th Oasis class ship (Symphony of the Seas), photos have leaked from the shipyard showing the name being added to the back of the vessel.
This 4th Oasis class ship will debut in mid 2018 with the 5th Oasis class coming out in 2021. With Royal Caribbean building a new world class terminal at PortMiami that will be able to accommodate an Oasis class ship, one of these ships will likely be based in the Cruise Capital of the World.
Royal Caribbean has two more Quantum class ships on order, with delivery dates of 2019 and 2020. Of the three Quantum class ships currently in service, two are currently based in China. These 168,000 gross ton ships can carry 4,180 passengers at double occupancy and are among the most technologically advanced cruise ships in the world.
Homeport and itineraries have yet to be announced.
A brand new class of ships for Royal Caribbean, two Icon class ships have been ordered with delivery dates in 2022 and 2024. While Royal Caribbean has yet to release many details on these new builds, we do know that they will be powered by LNG and each carry 5,000 passengers.
