Find here the answer to which is the newest cruise ships currently under construction or on order. You can jump directly to the lists of new vessels on order / under construction (2019-2027), as well as new river ships (2015-2022) and new cruiseferries (2010-2024).

Here you'll find them all - from small to really big to the ever largest cruise vessels from the fleets of RCG-Royal Caribbean, Carnival Corporation, NCLH-Norwegian and MSC. Here are listed also all the major cruise line ship orders for building new ships (with GT between ~2000 and ~230000 tons), with information on their design, building cost, passenger capacity, and builders (shipyards).

Newest Cruise Ships - CruiseMapper Our list of newly built cruise ships with first sailings ("Inaugural Cruises", aka "Maiden Voyages") offers simply the most special travel deals ever. These are absolutely unique offers for one-time-only events, which just like our birthdays are moments cherished for a lifetime. Most of the world's top cruise companies add to their fleets one newly build (or acquired) ship every 2 to 4 years on average.

In terms of source passengers, the largest markets are North America (50+%) and Europe (30+%). The fastest-growing market is luxury cruising, with the largest companies being Viking Ocean, Viking Expeditions, Silversea, MSC Expeditions (separate fleet), Crystal (yachts and riverboats), Ponant, Hapag-Lloyd, RSSC-Regent.

The cruiseship orders with deliveries planned in 2023-2028 were 72 (vessels) amounting to ~USD 46 billion.

New MSC ships 2017-2027

On March 20, 2014, MSC and STX France signed in Paris a letter of intent for building 2 new mega-liners with scheduled deliveries in 2017 (Meraviglia) and 2019 (Bellissima), each with GT 167,600 tons (slightly smaller than Quantum-class / 167,800 GT), but with bigger passenger capacity - 4500 (vs 4180).

MSC Meraviglia-class cruise ship

In February 2016, MSC ordered two "Meraviglia Plus" liners with max capacity 6300 passengers (200 more cabins, 16 m longer compared to Meraviglia-Class). The order made MSC France's largest private foreign investor - with USD 8,6+ billion in export contracts over a 5-year period. On April 6, 2016, MSC signed with STX France for the construction of up to four World-Class vessels - LNG-powered, with GT tonnage 250,000 tons and max passenger capacity 6800.

MSC Cruises World-Class ship

In November 2017 MSC ordered 2x "Seaside EVO" class ships from Fincantieri (contract value EUR 1,8 billion). The new ships are bigger (16 m longer, 17,330 GT tons heavier, with 200 more cabins / 467 more passengers) in comparison to Seaview and Seaside. Newbuilds' deliveries were scheduled for 2021 (Seashore) and 2022 (Seascape). With Seaside EVO, MSC had a total investment of EUR 10,5 billion into 12 new vessels with scheduled deliveries by 2026. The first of four "World Class" vessels will be delivered in 2022.

In October 2018, MSC and Fincantieri signed an MoA for 4x ultra-luxury expedition (total value EUR 2+ billion). The newbuilds (EXPLORA-class/first unit delivery in 2023-Q3) have GT tonnage 64,000 and 500 cabins. The remaining 3 units are due to enter service one per year (2024-2025-2026).

MSC Cruises Explora-Class ship (Explora Journeys)

In 2023, MSC's fleet had 21 liners.

New Carnival ships 2019-2024

In March 2015 Carnival Corporation ordered 9 new vessels to be built by two different companies - Fincantieri SpA (Italy) constructs 5 ships (at Monfalcone and Marghera yards), while Meyer Werft BmbH constructs the other 4 units in Germany (Papenburg) and Finland (Turku).

All new liners feature next-generation designs and marine architecture and technologies, each designed accordingly to the brand it serves (Costa, AIDA, Princess, Holland America, CCL-Carnival). In 2019 was established CSSC Carnival China - a Chinese-American joint venture company with a separate fleet of 2x ex-Costa ships (Atlantica, Mediterranea) plus 2 newbuilds (2023, 2024).

The next video is about Ponant's new Explorer-Class ships.
