Royal Take Option For Second New Ship

Date Posted: 05 Mar 2012
Category:

Royal Caribbean have announced that they have taken the option for a second ship as part of Project Sunshine, their new cruise liners being built at the Meyer Werft shipyard.

Project Sunshine was announced last year, with Royal Caribbean confirming a new class of cruise ships had been ordered from Meyer Werft. They confirmed that the first ship would be due for delivery in 2014 and that they had an option for a sister ship to be built for a 2015 launch — this option has of course, just been taken.

The new ships will carry around 4,000 passengers and are expected to be quite different from their last new ships, the 5,600 passenger Oasis class ships. The two new ships are expected to cost in the region of $936 million per ship.

Royal Caribbean released a short statement on Friday in regards to confirming plans for the new ships. The cruise line said: "[Project Sunshine] incorporates new and exciting features that take advantage of the best of Royal Caribbean's experience and imagination."

Royal Caribbean have yet to announce any further plans on the new ships, but the new ships could see the cruise line combine the best parts of the Freedom class ships with the Oasis class ships. I'd like to see the neighbourhood themes and the dining options done on a smaller scale for the new 4,000 passenger ships, but we'll have to wait and see.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
