The code name of the nextÂ classÂ Â of ships for Royal Caribbean is “Project Sunshine”.
We are soÂ looking forwardÂ toÂ what Royal Caribbean will come up with next.Â I imagine it will be an excitingÂ challenge toÂ top the Oasis Class ships.Â Â Â Â They reallyÂ stand out with extraordinaryÂ innovation.Â Â If anyone is up for the challenge, it’s Royal Caribbean.
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. signed a letter of intent with German shipyard Meyer Werft to build the first of a new generation of ships for its Royal Caribbean International brand, with a scheduled delivery in 2014.
“This next generation will not disappoint,â€ said RCCL Chairman Richard Fain in a statement.
“It will offer features for everyone: from grand, spectacular spaces to small intimate settings; from active, invigorating activities to the serenity of more personal space; and from a plethora of dining alternatives to a cornucopia of opportunities for families,” Fain said.
These ships will be smaller than the previous Oasis Class ships from Royal Caribbean, which carry 5,400 passengers and have a gross tonnage of 225,000. “Project Sunshine” ships will be 158,000 GRT and carry just over 4,100 guests based on double occupancy.Â The estimated all-in cost per berth is about $230,146.
Happy Sailing 🙂
