Royal Caribbean Cruises expands its Oasis and Edge-Class fleet with three more ships

Royal Caribbean Cruises has signed a deal with the French shipbuilder, STX France, to build three more ships to arrive early in the next decade.

A fifth Oasis-class ship is scheduled for delivery in the Spring of 2021, and two additional Edge-class ships scheduled for delivery in the autumn of 2021 and 2022.

“The response to the arrival of Harmony of the Seas is staggering, eliciting excitement from eager cruisers from markets on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Richard Fain, RCCL’s chairman.  “And Edge-class is one of the most highly anticipated new projects, following the high bar of Modern Luxury design set by its predecessor, the Solstice-class.”

“The Oasis-class ships have delivered beyond expectations each time,” said Michael Bayley, president of Royal Caribbean International. “Harmony of the Seas’ warm reception is evidence that growing this class of ship will continue to drive exceptional performance for the brand.”

“Although our first Edge-class vessel is still over two years away from delivery, there has been a tremendous amount of interest around the new standard of style Edge-class will introduce,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president of Celebrity Cruises. “Solstice-class ushered in a new era of design for modern cruise ships, and Edge-class will not disappoint as the new generation of high style and design.”

Laurent Castaing, managing director of STX France, said:  “We are extremely pleased with the recent success of Harmony of the Seas and take great pride in our partnership with Royal Caribbean. It is especially exciting to collaborate on such diverse projects from Oasis to Edge, both marvels in their own space.”
