Note: Ships that debuted prior to January 1, 2014 are not listed on this page. Please go to our cruise ship ratings page to view all ships. Guest occupancies listed above are based on double occupancy. Select images may be artist's renderings. Inaugural sailings (marked above as "First Cruise") are subject to change, at the cruise line's discretion. For example, if a ship is completed earlier than planned, the cruise line may add a new inaugural sailing prior to the original sailling that was expected to be the inaugural. Further, there may be pre-inaugural cruises available on ships (i.e. a official inaugural cruise may be listed above, but there may be sailings available prior to the inaugural sailing). The information listed is subject to change, since many of the new ships are not completely constructed yet. We reserve the right to correct errors.

* This ship's listed occupancy is the maximum occupancy, rather than being based on double occupancy.
