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

Exceptional ship, extraordinary partnership

'It is such a pleasure to announce the order of another Oasis-class ship,' Royal Caribbean chairman and CEO Richard Fain said. The order, he added, reflects the 'exceptional performance of this vessel class and the extraordinary partnership between Chantiers de l'Atlantique and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.'

23rd newbuild from Chantiers for RCL

It is the 23rd cruise ship Royal Caribbean will be building at Chantiers, and 'we are especially proud of it,' said Laurent Castaing, general manager, Chantiers de l'Atlantique.

'The order reflects the confidence our customer puts on us, based on the exceptional quality of our long-term cooperation between the two companies and on our capacity to bring innovative solutions to meet our customer's expectations.'

This order is contingent on financing, which is expected to be completed in the second or third quarter this year.

But first, Oasis 5 in 2021

The fifth 227,000gt Oasis-class ship is due from Chantiers in 2021.

Royal Caribbean's most recent vessel in the series was 2018's Symphony of the Seas. Before that 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.
