Royal Caribbean announced vague details earlier this year on their new-build project code-named “Project Sunshine,” that’s being constructed at Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. The two new 158,000-ton, 4,100-passenger cruise ships are going to be a little bit larger than the Freedom-class ships but a lot smaller than the Oasis class.
Earlier this week the shipyard chose air-condition supplier Kojo for the two new cruise ships, with an option for a third and forth ship.
“This order, valued at tens of millions of Euros, is our biggest single order ever,” said Martti Sippola, CEO at Koja.
Although Royal Caribbean hasn’t formally announced a third or forth ship order yet, there could be two more in the works soon.
The supplier order provides work for Koja until year 2015 and, if the options are realised, until year 2017.
The first “Project Sunshine” new-build is scheduled for delivery in 2014.
