Royal Caribbean's Project Sunshine

Date Posted: 14 Feb 2011

Royal Caribbean's CEO, Richard Fain, has announced that they have signed a letter of intent with shipyard Meyer Werft to build the first of a new fleet know as Project Sunshine.

Two weeks ago we uncovered the story that a new class of ships was in the pipeline and today Royal Caribbean have announced a few more details. The ships are expected to house 4,100 passengers, costing an estimated average of €170,000 per berth. Royal Caribbean said the ship’s design "incorporates new and exciting features that take advantage of the best of Royal Caribbean's experience and imagination’ and ‘is a result of over a year of dedicated research and development".

Richard Fain, Royal Caribbean's Chairman and CEO, said: "Royal Caribbean has worked hard to earn a reputation of offering the most innovative ships in the cruise industry and this next generation will not disappoint... While we continue our policy of keeping our newest ideas and features under wraps during the early stages of construction, I can say that I am very excited about the passion and imagination that our teams have devoted to the project."

"Project Sunshine builds on the best ideas of our existing ships and adds exciting new activities and entertainment concepts... It will offer features for everyone: from grand, spectacular spaces to small intimate settings; from active, invigorating activities to the serenity of more personal space and from a plethora of dining alternatives to a cornucopia of opportunities for families."

"I am also excited about the energy efficiency and environmental technologies which have been incorporated. Our existing ships are some of the most energy efficient in the world and Project Sunshine takes this one further step."

This is not the first time Royal Caribbean have worked with Meyer Weft, with the ship yard responsible for several of their current ships that include the Brilliance of the Seas and Celebrity Eclipse. The first ship has been pencilled in for autumn 2014 with Royal Caribbean holding the option for a second in spring 2015.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
