The first steel was cut for Royal Caribbean International's fifth Oasis-class ship at Chantiers de l'Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire. 2021 delivery is scheduled.    

The vessel follows 2018's Symphony of the Seas and will have the same seven-neighborhood concept, thrilling experiences, imaginative dining, exciting entertainment and the latest technology.

Before Symphony came Harmony of the Seas in 2016. The first two Oasis ships were built in Finland: Oasis of the Seas in 2009 and Allure of the Seas in 2010.

In February, Royal Caribbean entered into an agreement with Chantiers de l'Atlantique for a sixth Oasis-class ship, to be delivered in fall 2023.
