Royal Caribbean could order fourth and fifth Oasis-class cruise ships
Royal Caribbean placed an order for its third Oasis-class cruise ship late last year and will have the steel cutting for that ship occur on September 22, 2013 at STX France.
Cruise Industry News posted an article that cites supplier reports, a fourth Oasis-class ship will be confirmed by next summer, followed by an order for a fifth Oasis-class ship.
There's been an option for Royal Caribbean to build a fourth Oasis-class ship ever since they signed their contract with STX France for the third ship last year. If Royal Caribbean exercises their option for a fourth ship, it would be ready for delivery by mid-2018.
For a fifth Oasis-class ship, Royal Caribbean has up to four days prior to the one year anniversary date of the signing for the fourth Oasis-class ship contract.
