The keel laying marks a milestone in the development of the ship, signifying the beginning of its physical construction.

During the ceremony, a 1,000-ton block measuring 32-ft by 154-ft (10 x 47 meters) was lifted by crane into the building dock.

Still to be named, the fourth Oasis-class ship will be delivered in spring 2018.

The Miami-based Royal Caribbean International sails 23 cruise ships to the destinations in Bermuda and the Caribbean, Europe, Canada and New England, Alaska, South America, Asia, and Australia and New Zealand.
