Though many of us like small ships it looks like no cruise line is building any more of them. Oceania's Marina will set sail in January and it is twice the size (65,000 grt) of it's current fleet of 3 R ships.
It seems that only the luxury lines are still putting out smaller ships. Seabourn's newbuilds are running around 36,000 grt.
Do you think we'll ever see a new, smaller ship (50,000 grt or less), in the fleet of the mass market lines?
