2023 and 2024 are set to be fabulous years for cruising, with an array of amazing new ships sailing onto the scene. If you’re hoping to cruise on the newest and most modern cruise ships available, we’ve got the list of all the most dazzling new cruise ships taking to the seas this year and next.

Virgin Voyages- Resilient Lady

Maiden voyage: May 2023

This gorgeous ship, set to be the third in the Virgin Voyages adult-only cruise fleet, will be absolutely packed with brilliant amenities.

Foodies will be delighted to hear that the ship will boast more than twenty on-board eateries, from bento to tacos. And if you’re looking for something to wash that delicious grub down with, why not try a craft beer at Draught Haus or a boozy milkshake at the Social Club Diner?

You’ll find evening entertainment in abundance on Resilient Lady. Watch spectacular shows at The Red Room, the first ever multiform theatre at sea, or dance the night away at The Manor, a two-storey nightclub. Or, for a more intimate party, hire out The Groupie- a private karaoke room.

Music lovers will have a great time perusing the records at Voyage Vinyl, whilst geeks will be in their element at the arcade. And if you’re tempted to get a tattoo, Squid Ink is the place to go.

MSC Cruises- MSC Euribia 

Maiden Voyage:  June 2023

If you’re an eco-conscious cruiser, MSC Euribia is the ship for you, as its chief focus is to be environmentally friendly. The ship will be powered by Liquified Natural Gas, which produces 30% less carbon dioxide than oil. The ship will also have advanced waste management systems and energy-saving technologies such as smart heating.

The ship also promises to be visually stunning.  The exterior of the ship is to be decorated with the artwork of Alex Flämig. Inside, you will find the enchanting Emotions Immersive Gallery and a glittering indoor promenade covered by an incredible LED dome.

Keen swimmers will be glad to hear that MSC Euribia features five fantastic swimming pools, plus the enormous Coral Reef Aquapark. Kids will adore play areas designed by LEGO. Party animals will love spending their nights at the Attic Club.

Norwegian Cruise Line- Norwegian Viva

Maiden Voyage: Summer 2023

A ship for the adrenaline junkies, Norwegian Viva offers a range of thrilling activities. Satisfy your need for speed at the three-storey go-kart racetrack. And if you’re feeling brave, take on The Drop, the world’s first free-fall dry slide.

For activities that won’t get your heart racing quite as much, head to the games deck. Here you’ll find amusements such as mini-golf and darts. Or perhaps you’d rather swim in the Infinity Beach Pool?

Royal Caribbean- Icon of the Seas

Maiden Voyage: January 2024

Royal Caribbean introduced a brand-new class of ship in 2023, Icon-Class, the first new class of cruise ship from the cruise line since 2014! With this came the name of its newest ship, Icon of the Seas, which is set to sail in January 2024. This ship will include a number of spaces new to Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines such as Thrill Island, Surfside, The Hideaway and Suite Neighbourhoods for all to enjoy.

This exciting new ship introduces a wealth of new features that can’t be found on any other ship in Royal Caribbean’s vast fleet, including the largest waterpark at sea, 7 pools and the biggest Ice Arena at sea will embark on its maiden voyage in January 2024.

    Will there be a 15 day Cruise to Hawaii from Los Angeles. Specifically, on or around November 22, 2025 Because that date is MY 25TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY DATE!?

    I was on a round the world trip ( of a lifetime) when the virus struck the world, and we had to come home without visiting the Far East and Japan ,China , India , Petra . And I really wanted to see these places, can you find another cruise that does the same in 2021?

      Hi Val, sorry to hear your trip was cut short. If you’re looking for a 2021 sailing, you can find all our 2021 cruises here on our website. Specific to Asia cruises, I’d recommend taking a look at our latest Asia cruise deals here, and giving our Cruise Concierge a call for them to find a similar sailing that you had originally planned. They will be sure to find you something just as incredible. I hope this helps! Many thanks, Emma.
