Meyer Werft Cuts Steel for First Star Cruises Newbuild

German shipbuilder Meyer Werft yesterday held a steel cutting ceremony for the first of two cruise ships commissioned by the Asian operator Star Cruises.

Delivery of the first ship is planned for fall 2016. The sister ship will be delivered in fall 2017.

Both new ships for Hong Kong-headquartered Star Cruises will be about 151, 000 gross tons each and have a capacity of approximately 4.500 passengers. The ships will serve Asia’s growing cruise market

Each ship is 324 metres in length, 39.7 metres in breadth and will reach a trail speed of around 23 knots.

”We are glad to continue the long lasting relationship, which starts 20 years ago with building of SuperStar Leo and now we build these new ships for Star Cruises,” said Bernard Meyer, managing partner of Meyer Werft.
