Royal Caribbean Ships by Age [Infographic] from Newest to Oldest

Below you'll find all Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships by Age from newest to oldest. We know that some members of our cruise community like to sail the newest Royal Caribbean ship off the line. And we've heard from others who prefer nostalgia over that "new ship" smell. Fortunately, Royal Caribbean offers a wide variety of ship ages.

In this age of hyper-sensitivity, we wouldn't dare favor the youngest over the oldest Royal Caribbean Cruise ship. Nor vice versa. We love all ships equally. As annoyingly "PC" as that sounds, we truly have a soft spot in our hearts for all Royal Caribbean's ships regardless of age.

Our charts below will help you find the perfectly aged ship for your specific preference. We've prepared an infographic laying out Royal Caribbean ships by Age from its newest active ship, the Icon of the Seas, to its oldest ship still in operation (spoiler... it's the Grandeur of the Seas).

Royal Caribbean Oldest and Youngest Ships

Many cruisers will scroll to the very top or the very bottom of the chart. Maybe they want the freshest ship off the line. Or, perhaps they just want to avoid sailing the most ancient of the fleet. Either way, here are the most common two questions ask from potential Royal Caribbean cruisers.

What is Royal Caribbean’s newest cruise ship? Royal Caribbean's newest active ship is the Odyssey of the Seas, launched in December, 2021. She currently sails from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The next ship to be released will be the Wonder of the Seas in March 2022 followed by the Icon of the Seas in 2023. See details on each below.

What is Royal Caribbean’s oldest ship? Royal Caribbean's oldest cruise ship, which is still active today, is the Grandeur of the Seas. It was launched in 1996 and currently offers departures form Barbados, Miami and Galveston.

Fun FactOn Royal Caribbeans newest ship, the Odyssey of the Seas, there are 25 different food and beverage venues. On a standard, 7-day cruise, you could visit three different dining venues every day for the entire week!
 
 
Does Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship Age impact price?

Often we're asked if "age" affects size. The short answer is, "yes." It's not a 1:1 correlation. The newest ship won't always be the most expensive. And the oldest the least. Many more factors will come into play. The cruise length, itinerary, season, etc will all factor in. A new ship will generally cost more. The older ships tend to offer more deals. To get a sense of pricing, use the widget below. Play around with ships and dates to see how price changes with age and more.

 

You'll see from our Royal Caribbean Ship Age Infographic that the cruise line's active ships go back to 1996. If you're on one of these older ships, however, don't expect a 90's throwback complete with Nirvana music and tamagotchis. Cruise ships are regularly upgraded to provide the newest venues and a fresh coat of paint.

Let's be honest, the Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas won't have the same "new ship smell" that you'll find on the Odyssey of the Seas. And cruise pricing typically reflects this. Newer ships and ships more recently renovated will command higher prices than those in need of some updates.

If you're looking for the newest cruise ship off the lot, then our graph below should be exactly what you need. I
