Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCL) has confirmed an order for Chantiers de l’Atlantique of Saint-Nazaire, France, according to a previous option agreement, to build a new Oasis-class cruise ship, due for delivery in autumn 2023.

At 362m long and 66m wide, 231,000gt, and with capacity for 6,700 passengers, the new 2857-cabin ship (hull A35) will be, like her sister ships of the Oasis-Class, one of the largest cruise ships ever built.

Under previous Oasis class contracts with RCCL Chantiers de l’Atlantique has already built Harmony of the Seas, delivered in May 2016, and Symphony of the Seas, delivered in March 2018, and will deliver the third vessel in spring 2021.

“It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Oasis-class ship,” said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, RCCL. “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.”

“At her delivery, she will be the 23rd cruise ship built by our yard for Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, and we are especially proud of it”, stated Laurent Castaing, General Manager, Chantiers de l’Atlantique. ”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 each time innovative solutions which meets our customer’s expectations.”
