Royal Caribbean Orders 2nd Project Sunshine Ship

Today, Royal Caribbean International announced the order of a second ship for their new class of ships, Project Sunshine. The first of the ships for Project Sunshine will be delivered in the fall of 2014, while the second will be delivered in spring of 2015. Both ships will be built at Meyer Werft Shipyards in Papenburg, Germany.

Royal Caribbean has been very quiet about the details of Project Sunshine, and even their president and CEO, Adam Goldstein said that details might not emerge for maybe another year. Although, Royal Caribbean did release a rendering of their new Falmouth port complex (to the right) and it seems to include a ship that is larger than the Freedom Class, but smaller than the Oasis class. Is this Project Sunshine?

Chairman of Royal Caribbean International, Richard Fain, said in a statement today…

“This confirms our continued confidence in the success of this new generation of ships and our strong conviction about the Royal Caribbean International brand.”

Royal Caribbean has the option to build two more ships of this class with Meyer Werft.
