In December 2014, RCL confirmed an order for 4 ships of a new class, the Edge Class, due for delivery in fall 2018 for the first unit and in 2020, 2021 and 2022 for the other ones. With this order, Chantiers de l’Atlantique confirm their ability to offer innovative ships being the state-of-the-art in terms of design.
Among the main innovations, the « Magic Carpet » concept will be one of the most attractive. This concept is a rising platform installed on the outer hull of the ship which will be used as a marina, a bar, an extension of the pool deck or a restaurant depending on the moments of the day or the level at which it is positioned. It will be able to host a hundred of people in a space the same size as a tennis court.
The cabin concept is another remarkable innovation designed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique, with the integration of its terrace inside the cabin thus enlarging its size.
Project being granted with a financial assistance in the frame of PIA (Investment for the Future) and supported by ADEME. Read more in section Our partners.
