The bottom line is that close to 12,000 crew members will be required for those 14 new cruise ships – from guest service officers, gift shop staff, spa and salon staff, photographers, deck officers, IT personnel, cruise staff, art auctioneers, and many more.

The launch of Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas will close off 2009 in December as being the largest cruise ship ever launched at 220,000 GRT. And it will also be the 10th cruise ship (exceeding 30,000 GRT) to be delivered for 2009.

The first cruise ship to be launched in 2010 will be the Costa Delizosa followed by thirteen other ships (exceeding 30,000 GRT) to round out the year.
