Construction has officially started on the fifth Oasis-class cruise ship at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in France.

Fifth Oasis-Class Cruise Ship

The Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard which is located in Saint-Nazaire, France has started construction on the fifth Oasis-class cruise ship for Royal Caribbean. The first piece of steel was cut which marks a major construction milestone for the future vessel.

A ceremony was held to mark the special moment of potentially the new world’s largest cruise ship. Executives from the Miami-based cruise line and shipyard attended the event in France.

The fifth Oasis-class ship will be completed in 2021 but will go through some major milestone before the delivery including the keel laying, float out on to the water for the very first time and sea trials. The pieces of steel will begin to come together to make up the large blocks. Those large blocks will then eventually come together to make the ship a whole.

The future ship could be slightly larger once again and introduce new features which is expected.

Once completed the fifth Oasis-class vessel will be at least 228,000 gross tons and a passenger capacity of over 5,500 at double occupancy.
