The future of the cruise industry is bright with cruise lines having an unprecedented number of cruise ships on order. While many of the details on these future cruise ships are still unknown, here are five exciting classes of ships that we can’t wait to sail on.
Here are six future classes of cruise ships that we know little about but we can’t wait to take a cruise on.
Virgin Cruises – Ever since business mogul Richard Branson announced that he was starting a cruise line, there has been an excitement in the air about what Virgin Cruises will bring to the industry. The first of three 110,000 gross ton ships is scheduled to be completed in 2020 and the cruise line is promising to “make some waves” in the world of cruising. What we know so far is that Virgin won’t be your typical cruise and there there will be no passengers under the age of 18.
The first ship will sail seven night cruises to the Caribbean and leave out of PortMiami, the Cruise Capital of the World.
Carnival’s Mega Ships – Carnival Cruise Line will be joining the era of mega cruise ships with two 180,000 gross ton ships. They will be fully powered by LNG (the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel) and each carry 5,200 passengers. The first ship will be delivered in 2020 and will be nearly 50,000 gross tons larger than their current largest ship, Carnival Vista. We can’t wait to see what Carnival has in store for their first mega ship.
Disney’s New Ships – Disney Cruise Line has announced that they have ordered three new cruise ships, with the first being delivered in 2021. While the ships will be slighter larger than Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, these new cruise ships promise to have exciting new innovations that will be uniquely fun and distinctly Disney. Disney sets the bar when it comes to the mainstream cruise lines.
Celebrity Edge Class – Celebrity Cruises has ordered a new class of ship that will be built upon the luxury experience of the Solstice and Millennium class ships. With a total of four ships on order, the first (Celebrity Edge) will arrive in the fall of 2018.
