Fincantieri Cuts Steel for New Princess Cruises’ Ship

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri held the steel cutting of the new ship for Princess Cruises, brand of Carnival Corporation, at its shipyard in Monfalcone on September 8.

The new cruise ship will be the fourth edition of the class for Princess Cruises, following Royal, Regal and Majestic, delivered in 2013, 2014 and 2017, respectively, by the same yard.

Works for the construction of a bow section for the latest vessel started last November at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Castellammare di Stabia, Naples. The section will be then transported by sea and assembled to the rest of the unit in Monfalcone, where delivery will take place by the end of 2019.

Princess Cruises’ new cruise ship will feature a gross tonnage of 145,000 tons and will be able to accommodate 4,250 passengers on board.

Fincantieri said that the vessel will represent a new technological benchmark in Europe and worldwide for its innovative layout, the outstanding performances and the top quality of its state-of-the-art technology.
