Princess Cruises builds for China
Construction has begun on the first Princess Cruises vessel designed specifically for the Chinese cruise market, with the keel laying taking place at Fincanteri’s Monfalcone Shipyard last week.
Fincanteri said the ships represent a new technological benchmark for their innovative layout, outstanding performance and state-of-the-art technology. “They witness that innovation and customer care of a market leader such as the Carnival Group are essential levers to tackle a crisis such the ongoing one,” the yard owner added.
As reported, the vessel is being built at a cost of around €600 million. Fincantieri has built 70 cruise ships since 1990 (and 47 in the last 13 years). A further 14 ships are currently being designed or built in the group's yards.
