    Royal Caribbean orders 4th Oasis-class ship. Surprised?


    Slated for delivery in 2018, a fourth Oasis-class ship may be added to Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.’s fleet of enormous cruises. The cruise line’s executives announced the new ship orderFriday at a keel-laying ceremony for the third Oasis-class ship in Saint-Nazaire, France.

    Launched in 2009, Oasis-class ships are the world’s largest passenger ships. The fourth ship order is still subject to financing and documentation requirements. According to a press release, projected capital expenditures for 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 are $1.4 billion, $1.4 billion, $2.2 billion, $0.3 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively, taking into account this order and existing ship orders.

    Two Oasis-class ships – including the ship executives announced today – are slated to join Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas , which launched in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

    Oasis-class ships have 16 decks with 2,700 staterooms. The ship includes a ‘Central Park’ with 12,000 live trees and plants.

    Earlier this month, Travel Weekly reported Port Canaveral has the chance to be the home to Royal Caribbean's next Oasis-level mega-ship.

    That would give Port Canaveral and Central Florida access to a ship with a passenger capacity of more than 5,400 passengers — nearly 2,000 more passengers than some of the Royal Caribbean ships currently docked there.

    Just like the baseball movie ... build it, they will come. As long as Oasis and Allure keep filling up, and cruising becomes more and more popular with families and kids, why wouldn't RCI want to add to the gargantuan class. Personally, I'd like to see the trend return to smaller, classier.
