Tui. Euro mass market line buys some.

I’m partial to the Voyager and Freedom class ships. My DH loves the Royal Promenade. Oasis is just too big for us. Just our personal choice.

I have been looking for it through various web sites, blogs etc. I could have sworn when the Edge was announced that there was a sister size being built for Royal but I can't find anything. AM I just making this up? Also how big is the Edge-pax wise its just under 3k at full occupancy isn't it?

No sister ship for Royal. Their next class is the Icon Class, which is 200,000 tons, and will run on natural gas. It will probably hold 5,000 guests.

People were hoping Royal would build a variation of Edge (i.e. Quantum's design came from Solstice), so there was discussion about it, but nothing official.

As the above poster mentioned, Royal's next set of ships is the Icon Class, which seem to be much larger than Edge.
