There is speculation that Royal Caribbean may base an Oasis Class ship in China in the next few years. Although sources are tight lipped Royal Caribbean has a number of options for new ships in the years to come.

Royal Caribbean has:
  • Additional Oasis Class ships on Order.
  • Additional Quantum Class ship are also on order.
  • A new Class of ships, expected to be around 200,000 tons which is between the Quantum and Oasis class ships in size. These ships are code named the Sunshine Class / Icon Class ships and are sure to offer a new set of attractions and amenities.
Royal Caribbean was the first cruise line, in a surprise move, to base new ships in China. This is very different than most cruise line's entry into new markets where they traditionally use older ships. This move on Royal Caribbean's part, has caused other cruise lines to commit new tonnage to these markets as well. This has made finding employment of older ships more difficult.
