Princess Cruises to Build Next-Generation LNG Cruise Ships

Princess Cruises, a leading global cruise brand of Carnival Corporation, announced a memorandum of agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. to build two new cruise ships on a next-generation platform designed to further enhance an already world-class holiday experience for its guests.

The new builds are slated to be delivered in late 2023 and spring 2025.

The two ships will be 175,000 gross tonnes and accommodate approximately 4,300 guests. Specification details for the ship design, along with anticipated features and amenities, will be shared in the future. The new vessels will be Princess Cruises’ first ships to be dual-fuel powered - primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the marine industry’s environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology, which will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil.
