Default A Second Ultra Voyager

RCI order a second Ultra Voyager.

8 Sep 2004,
World’s largest cruise ship ordered from Aker Yards



(Miami - Helsinki) Royal Caribbean International and Aker Yards, have today confirmed the order of a second Ultra Voyager - the world’s largest cruise ship. The contract is valued at some €570-580 million, making it the world’s largest cruise ship order in year 2004.

Kvaerner Masa-Yards Inc., which is a part of Aker Yards, will build two of these record breaking cruise ships. The first Ultra Voyager cruise ship will be delivered in May 2006 and the second ship will be ready for delivery in spring 2007. The work on the first Ultra Voyager has already commenced. These new ships are some 15 per cent larger in space and passenger capacity than the earlier Voyager-class vessels.

“We are satisfied that we together with Royal Caribbean International and the subcontractors have been able to make this an attractive project considering the challenging euro-dollar conditions. Additionally, we are extremely proud of building these two giants for the cruise market,” says Yrjö Julin, President at Masa-Yards. “Once again, we get to prove our expertise in shipbuilding by constructing not only one, but two of the largest ships of our time.”

“We are delighted to continue to make cruise-ship history with Kvaerner Masa-Yards,” said Royal Caribbean International Chairman and CEO Richard D. Fain. “They are truly masters at their craft and are worthy partners.”

The new Ultra Voyager’s will be 126 feet by 1,112 feet (38.6 meters by 339 meters), and will stand 18 decks high. Their gross tonnage is around 160.000, which make them 6 % larger than today’s largest cruise ship. The ships will carry 3,600 guests, 500 more than its predecessors in the Voyager-series, and 1,400 crewmembers.

Being the world’s largest ships, the Ultra Voyager’s will offer even more room for passenger facilities and amenities and will provide even greater economies of scale than their predecessors.

I hope the Ultra Voyager is more than just an extended Voyager-class ship...Anyhow RCI is still the leader in innovations, but maybe its time for RCI to design a new class of ships from scratch whether than an exsisting design?

I dunno if there will be enough demands to fill 2 ultra-v and the existing 5 voyager-class and the other jumbo ships. Anyhow its great to see RCI having a grand fleet!
