The most energy-efficient series of cruise liners will gain a fourth ship in 2018 from the French shipyard STX France
Royal Caribbean, which is a regular guest of CMP during the cruise season, has confirmed an order for the fourth Oasis class ship at the French shipyard STX France. The order was placed during the ceremony for the keel-laying of the third Oasis class ship at STX France in May.
”The Oasis class – which is the biggest cruise liner in the world – was a revolution in maritime design when it was launched in 2009, and Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas are still in a class of their own when it comes to customer satisfaction and financial profit” says Richard D. Fain, CEO of Royal Caribbean.
Oasis III will be about 20% more energy-efficient than Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, which are already the most energy-efficient cruise vessels in the world, and that development will continue with the fourth ship, with delivery expected in 2018.
The Oasis class is 225,282 BRT and has 2,700 cabins. The ships are characterised by a range of unique features on-board, including a park with 12,000 live trees and plants.
