Royal Caribbean Orders New Ship For 2014
Royal Caribbean Cruises recently signed an agreement with German shipyard Meyer Werft and ordered a brand new class of ships, dubbed “Project Sunshine,” according to the cruiseline’s representative in Greece Navigator Travel and Tourism Services.
The order calls for one ship to be delivered in the fall of 2014 with an option for a second ship in spring 2015. The 158,000-ton new build will carry over 4,100 guests based on double occupancy. The estimated all-in cost per berth is some 170,000 euros.
“Project Sunshine builds on the best ideas of our existing ships and adds exciting new activities and entertainment concepts,” Richard Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises said.
