Royal Caribbean International has commissioned MEYER TURKU with the construction of three new ocean liners. The first – the lead ship in the Icon Class – is being constructed in Finland with yard number NB 1400. Its delivery is scheduled for 2023.
This new series of ships will comprise three luxury liners with a tonnage of about 200,000 GT and enough room for around 5,000 passengers. This means the cruise ships in the Icon Class will be a similar size to those previously delivered to the shipping company. But all three luxury liners will feature completely new propulsion technology – their eco-friendly LNG drive system will ensure a significant reduction in emissions.
The second cruise ship in this class will be delivered in 2025, and the third will follow in 2026.
