Royal Caribbean International will expand the Oasis class to six ships in 2023, placing an order for another of the 5,400-passenger vessels with Chantiers de l'Atlantique.

The first of the game-changing ships, Oasis of the Seas, was delivered in 2009.  Since then, Royal Caribbean has added the Allure, Harmony and Symphony of the Seas, with a fifth unnamed ship on order for 2021.

The order is "a reflection of the exceptional performance of this vessel class and the extraordinary partnership between Chantiers de l'Atlantique and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.," said RCCL chairman Richard Fain.

The cost of the ship wasn't revealed. The value of the fifth Oasis-class ship is estimated at $1.43 billion at current exchange rates.
