Royal Caribbean to reveal Project Sunshine details

Initial details of Royal Caribbean International’s new class of ship – dubbed Project Sunshine – are expected to be unveiled today.

The company hinted about an “exciting reveal regarding the next class of ships” later today US time.

Information has so far been limited about the new class of vessel, which will be similar in size to the line’s Freedom-class ships.

The first 158,000-ton, 4,100-passenger vessel is due to be launched in the autumn of 2014, followed by a sister ship in spring 2015.

The company announced the new class of ship two years ago using the Project Sunshine code name.

Chief executive Richard Fain said at the time: “Project Sunshine builds on the best ideas of our existing ships and adds exciting new activities and entertainment concepts.

“It will offer features for everyone: from grand, spectacular spaces to small intimate settings; from active, invigorating activities to the serenity of more personal space; and from a plethora of dining alternatives to a cornucopia of opportunities for families.”

The vessels are to be built at the Mayer Weft shipyard in Papenburg in Germany.
