Royal Caribbean Orders "Project Genesis" Ship

Royal Caribbean International ordered a new 220,000-ton, 5,400-passenger ship from Finnish shipbuilder Aker Yards. The new ship, tentatively called "Project Genesis," is being built for a fall 2009 delivery. At 1,180 feet long, 154 feet wide and 240 feet high, Project Genesis will give Royal Caribbean plenty of room for new razzle-dazzle features, as well as those guests have come to expect onboard its Voyager-class ships. In addition, the new ship will have some features of Royal Caribbean's Freedom-class ship, Freedom the Seas, which is launching this spring. Royal Caribbean also touted the new design as highly energy efficiency. The ship will cost approximately $230,000 per berth. Royal Caribbean also has an option for a second ship.
