We recently posted about new ships launching in 2017, but you can actually book your place onboard a brand new ship over a year in advance. There are many benefits to booking early including introductory discounts and the all-important best choice of cabins – for a maiden season, these are sure to be filled early!

If like many people, you have a thirst for the hottest innovations or you simply like the feel of being onboard a brand new ship, below are the latest new ships that are available to book right now.



Symphony of the Seas


Symphony of the Seas joins Royal Caribbean as the fourth Oasis Class ship and sister to the hugely popular Harmony of the Seas. Centred around the seven distinct themed neighbourhoods, there’s endless opportunities for fun and relaxation onboard.



Recommended for: families of all ages

Celebrity Edge


Celebrity Edge is the first ship to be designed completely in 3D, meaning that each element of the customer experience is more easily imagined, improving everything from passenger flows and interior design elements. If you want to sail onboard a game changing ship with never seen before innovations, then look no further – where else can you take a ride on a magic carpet?

Carnival Horizon


Life onboard the Carnival fleet is anything but dull and the same applies to Carnival Horizon. As sister ship to Carnival Vista, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained including an IMAX Theatre, sports centre and a suspended SkyRide. Grown-ups will love Cloud 9 Spa and the Serenity Adult Only Retreat, which is the perfect place to reconnect with your partner or finally finish that book…

Norwegian Bliss


Norwegian Bliss is built for maximum immersion and is the only ship to be custom built for Alaska and the Caribbean. The revolutionary Observation Lounge offers guests the most expansive views at sea, so that spotting that bald eagle soaring over the glaciers or the pod of dolphins in the close distance is a dream view come true.
