Fincantieri Still in Carnival Fever

Royal Princess

Fincantieri and Princess Cruises, brand of US cruise group Carnival Corporation & plc. have reached an agreement to build a new cruiser ship for the company at an all-in cost for the shipowner of approximately 600 million euros (USD 804m).

 

The 143,000-ton ship, which will enter service in 2017, will carry 3,560 passengers (lower berths), and feature the design platform introduced by sister ships “Royal Princess” in 2013 and “Regal Princess” which entered service this past May.

Giuseppe Bono, Fincantieri Chief Executive Officer, said: “All the orders we win are important for our Group, but some are more special than others.

The one we’re announcing today certainly belongs to this select category.

It’s a source of great pride to be able to immediately build another ship for a prestigious brand like Princess Cruises following the successful deliveries of two jewels like “Royal” and “Regal”, which have already become part of maritime history”. 

Specific features and amenities for the ship, along with deployment details, will be revealed in the coming months.
