Call it a lucky number seven.

Royal Caribbean Group has entered into an agreement with French shipbuilder Chantiers de l'Atlantique to order a seventh Oasis Class ship for delivery to its Royal Caribbean International fleet in 2028.

"While we eagerly anticipate the debut of Royal Caribbean's Utopia of the Seas this summer, we're already dreaming up her sister ship and the next installation in the brand's extremely popular Oasis Class," said Jason Liberty, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group, in a statement. "Across our three brands, we are focused on continuously challenging ourselves to deliver the ultimate vacation experience."

The announcement follows Royal Caribbean Group's recent introduction of three new ships including Silver Nova, Celebrity Ascent and Icon of the Seas.

"These are exciting times for Royal Caribbean, and we have an incredible partner in Chantiers de l'Atlantique to bring to life the lucky seventh Oasis Class vessel of what is a remarkable class of ships," stated Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

Oasis of the Seas, the first ship in its class, was first introduced in 2009, marking the debut of new onboard concepts, such as neighbourhoods and the first-ever split superstructure design and entertainment across air, ice, water and stage.

The next in the lineup will “continue that legacy with the latest combination of bold revolutionary, evolutionary and signature experiences,” the cruise line said.

The order is contingent upon financing, which is expected to be completed later this year.

“These new ships represent a wave of innovation at Royal Caribbean Group as we continue our pursuit of creating and delivering the best vacation experiences responsibly,” wrote Liberty on his LinkedIn account yesterday.

Royal’s sixth Oasis class ship, Utopia of the Seas, is set to launch this July.
