Let’s face it, two-thirds of the population will never travel by air again. The cost is prohibitive, the food is awful and the safety is a mockery. If you’re a cruise junkie that’s locked in, then it’s time to start booking that next cruise.

Cruise ships are a luxury most of us can only dream of. But if you’re a frequent cruiser, you know how incredibly expensive the cost of a week at sea can be. Cruise lines have been trying to change that with something called “The New Normal.” Cruise lines have been adding new cruise ships at a rapid pace lately, and by 2022, 16 new ships will be adding to the already-sized cruise ship fleet. So, what new ships will cruise lines unveil in 2022?

Cruise lines are always looking to add more ships to their fleet. The latest round of additions includes the Vega, which debuted on Jan. 15, the Voyager, which debuted on March 1, the Enchantment of the Seas, which debuted on June 1, and the Oasis of the Seas, which debuted on June 15. The 13 new ships will make up a larger “fleet of the future” that is expected to be able to carry nearly 6 million guests per year..

The order book for new ships in 2022 seems to be almost filled; several cruise companies have new ships on the way that we can’t wait to see. We couldn’t resist putting this piece together a bit early this year, even though it’s just a little over halfway through 2021.
