So to recap, 3 Quantum class ships and 1 new Oasis class ship are all on order and on the way? Do I have that right?

Yes, that count of ships is correct. It seems unusual to me that they'd commit to the third Quantum-class when the first one is still just a few blocks of steel in the bottom of a drydock. It definitely shows they are confident the new design will sell.

So they will be launching a Oasis class & a Quantum class in the same year? Obviously in different parts of the world.

That too.

But we do take other trips for family visits and there are only so many cruises that I want to take in between.

We have a trip to Connecticut coming up soon and after that we are going to Tennessee and Kentucky.
We have trips planned to Texas plus Italy and Portugal as well.

Hopefully a 3rd Quantum ship will bring about a home port in a warmer climate.
