This ceremony marks symbolically the start of the construction of the third Oasis-class built by the shipyard, after Harmony of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas respectively delivered in 2016 and 2018.

Like her sister ships, the hull of the new cruise ship will be composed with about 400 000 machined steel parts.
