Royal Caribbean orders fourth Quantum-class vessel

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. announced that it has entered into an agreement with Meyer Werft in Germany to order a fourth Quantum-class ship for delivery in 2019.

"Today's announcement is a reflection of the success of the first two Quantum-class ships," said Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. "We have received a remarkable response from travel agent partners and travelers, and are thrilled that we'll be able to deliver another revolutionary ship with our partners at Meyer Werft."

"The fourth Quantum class vessel will be a trailblazer in smart-ship design and vacation innovation," said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. "Royal Caribbean International is synonymous with adventure, and the icons and amenities on this ship will continue to challenge and expand guests' expectations of the cruise experience."

Based upon current ship orders, projected capital expenditures for full year 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 are $1.6 billion, $2.3 billion, $0.4 billion, $2.4 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively.

Capacity increases for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 are expected to be 5.5%, 6.3%, 3.1%, 3.9% and 6.5%, respectively.  These figures do not include potential ship sales or additions that the company may elect to make in the future. 

The order is contingent upon the completion of customary conditions, including financing.

The first ships of this class – Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas – were delivered in fall 2014 and spring 2015 respectively. The third ship, Ovation of the Seas, is under construction at Meyer Werft in Northwestern Germany.
