At 225,282-tons and over 1,000-feet long, the Oasis and Allure of the Seas are two of the most revolutionary cruise ships in the world. Are two of these “cities at sea” enough? Obviously, not! After months of denying the rumor, Royal Caribbean just signed a contract for a third Oasis-class ship, due for delivery mid-2016. In addition, there is an option for a second ship that could be built by 2018.
“The Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas have fundamentally transformed the cruise experience for our guests,” said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “These ships have consistently generated outstanding guest satisfaction ratings and continue to produce superior financial results. We are thrilled to be adding a sister to this extraordinary class of vessels at a compelling price. Being back building in France just adds to the pleasure.”
So now the excitement and anticipation begins! What thrilling new restaurants and entertainment venues will be included in this new-build? It’s way to early to speculate, but stay tuned for future postings and we’ll be sure to share whatever we find out!"
