Work Starts on New Princess Ship Built for China

The keel laying ceremony of the new unit for Princess Cruises has been held today at Fincantieri Monfalcone Shipyard.

The new vessel, which has been ordered by the Carnival Group for the shipowner Princess Cruises, will go to sea in 2017 and it will be the first vessel to be designed and built specifically for the Chinese market. It is the third in a line of sisters following the Royal and Regal ships.

These ships represent a new technological benchmark in Europe and worldwide for their innovative layout, the outstanding performance and the top quality of their state-of-the-art technology. They witness  that innovation and customer care of a market leader such  the Carnival Group are essential levers to tackle a crisis such the ongoing one.
