Arriving 2019 -2022 are 4 brand new Carnival ships to take on Royal Caribbean’s behemoth Oasis class ships.
The new carnival ships will each carry 6600 guests (that’s 304 more than Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class.
BUT – and this is a BIG but – the new carnival ships are actually smaller than royal’s oasis class.
New Carnival design is 180’000 tonnes (27 tonnes of space per person)
Oasis class is 225’000 tonnes (41 tonnes of space per person)
What can we take from the figures? Not much….
I can only guess the vast difference in space is because the Carnival offering is not as wide / will not have the spectacular open spaces (park & boardwalk) that the Oasis class has.
The Carnival ships will be split up and given to different brands in the Carnival corp.
Provisional rumours place them into the “European” brands – that’s Aida & Costa cruises.
- As I cant see P&O having a ship that size.
As soon as more news and info comes out I’ll be sure to update this blog.
Tarar for now – Capn.
