Two LNG ships confirmed for Princess Cruises
Princess Cruises has announced the signing of final contracts with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for the construction of two next-generation cruise ships scheduled for delivery in 2023 and 2025.
The vessels will each accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be the first Princess Cruises ships to be dual-fuel powered primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
“Princess Cruises continues to grow globally – adding new ships to our fleet built by our long-time trusted ship building partner, Fincantieri…brings decades of expertise to these next-generation cruise ships,” said Princess Cruises President Jan Swartz.
The latest announcement follows a memorandum agreement signed between the two parties to build the ships back in Jul last year (CW 24 Jul 2018).
