Royal Caribbean International has commissioned MEYER TURKU with the construction of three new ocean liners. The second new ship in the Icon Class is being constructed in Finland with yard number NB 1401. It will be delivered in 2024.
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 lead ship will be delivered in 2022, and the third will follow in 2025.
