Just last week Princess Cruises announced their biggest ever commitment to Australia and today, they have more news. The line has officially signed off an order for two new build next-generation cruise ships.
They are set to be delivered in late 2023 and in spring 2025.
The ships which will be built by Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri will be the largest ships ever built in Italy.
The ships will be able to accommodate 4,300 guests and will be based on a next-generation design, being the first Princess Cruises ships to be dual-fuel powered primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas.
LNG is the marine industry’s most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology and the world’s cleanest fossil fuel, which will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil usage.
“Princess Cruises continues to grow globally — adding new ships to our fleet built by our long-time trusted ship building partner, Fincantieri, who brings decades of expertise to these next-generation cruise ships,” Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises President said.
“Even more exciting is that these two ships are being designed to include our MedallionClass platform, powered by OceanMedallion, the most advanced wearable device available within the global hospitality industry.”
