Future/Planned Cruise Ships
 
Hi all,

The following news article made me curious about future cruise ships. I used to have a URL for a site that contains a list of planned ships on various lines. Does anyone know of a site where I can fnd information on future ships, e.g. so that I could catch a maiden voyage.

RCI Annouces New 160,000-ton Ship
Royal Caribbean International is drawing up plans for a 160,000-ton "Ultra-Voyager" class vessel scheduled for delivery in 2006. While a firm order has not been placed with the ship yard, RCI says it is working on the design for the 3,600-passenger ship which will be 15% larger than the Voyager-class vessels (Voyager/Explorer/Adventurer of the Seas) the company presently operates.

If you go to cruisenewsdaily.com and click on "New Ships" you can get a complete list of all ships under construction as well as those planned for delivery in the next few years.

Browzilla,

As of right now, this ship will become the largest cruise ship on the seas, eclipsing the RMS Queen Mary II of Cunard Lines Ltd. by 10,000 tons. It will be interesting to see if and how Cunard responds.
