Royal Caribbean Cruises has signed a memorandum of understanding with French shipbuilder STX France to build three new cruise ships.
STX will construct a fifth Oasis-class ship and two additional Edge-class ships, scheduled for delivery between 2021 and 2022.
The order follows the arrival and unveiling of the Oasis-class ‘Harmony of the Seas’, while the first Edge-class vessel is still over two years away from delivery.
Oasis-class vessels are 360 metres long with capacity for 5,400 passengers. The Edge-class will carry 2,900 guests, weigh 117,000 gross tonnes and measure 300 metres long.
