New ships on deck for Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises

MIAMI — Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has signed on for a fifth Oasis-class ship for Royal Caribbean, scheduled for delivery in Spring 2021, and two additional Edge-class ships for Celebrity Cruises, scheduled for delivery in Fall 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 D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “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.”

Adds Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises,  “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. 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.”
