Italian Media: Fincantieri About to Land Norwegian Ship Order

Italian media reports claim that Fincantieri is poised to land a major ship order from Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. 

Affaritaliani.it, an online Italian newspaper based in Milan, reports that the order will be for six megaships with deliveries of the 130,000-ton vessels starting in 2022.

Norwegian has built its current class of ships at Meyer Werft, and previously, the Epic at STX France.

However, a new management team in place since early 2015 led by Frank del Rio has extensive experience building ships at Fincantieri for the Regent and Oceania brands.

A Norwegian spokesperson said the company does not comment on rumors.
