Malaysian cruise operator Star Cruises has placed a contract for a 150,000gt cruise vessel with German yard Meyer Werft of Papenburg.

The new vessel, an addition to Star Cruise’s existing six-ship fleet, will be the company’s new flagship, with 1,680 cabins. The order is subject to finalisation of finance arrangements, and the ship is scheduled for delivery in Autumn 2016.

Meyer says that this order will increase the its order book from six to seven large cruise ships up to the year 2017. “We are very happy to continue our long lasting partnership with Star Cruises. It is a great challenge to create a state of the art cruise vessel specifically for the Asian market. Therefore we are very thankful that Star Cruise gave us again the confidence to create this special cruise vessel with them,” said MD Bernard Meyer.

The yard says that the project will involve around 3,100 of its direct employees as well as about 20,000 employees of supplier companies and partners in Europe. It must come as a relief after Meyer lost a recent order from Germany’s Aida Cruises to Japan.
