Royal Caribbean Group Orders Seventh Oasis Class Ship

Royal Caribbean Group has announced that it has entered into an agreement with French shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique to order a seventh Oasis Class ship for delivery to its Royal Caribbean International fleet in 2028.

“While we eagerly anticipate the debut of Royal Caribbean’s Utopia of the Seas this summer, we’re already dreaming up her sister ship and the next installation in the brand’s extremely popular Oasis Class,” said Jason Liberty, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group. “Across our three brands, we are focused on continuously challenging ourselves to deliver the ultimate vacation experience.”

The announcement follows Royal Caribbean Group’s recent introduction of three new ships, including Silver Nova, Celebrity Ascent and Icon of the Seas.

Since the 2009 introduction of Oasis of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s Oasis Class "revolutionized" cruising with innovations, from the debut of the neighborhood concept to the first-ever split superstructure design and entertainment across air, ice, water and stage. The next ship in the lineup, Royal Caribbean Group says, "will continue that legacy with the latest combination of bold, evolutionary and signature experiences."

“This order signals Royal Caribbean Group’s continued confidence in our partnership that has delivered some of the most innovative ships at sea,” said Laurent Castaing, general manager, Chantiers de l’Atlantique. “We look forward to building upon this relationship as we help bring this ship to life.”

This order is contingent upon financing, which is expected to be completed later this year.
