Princess Cruises orders biggest ships ... but we’ll have to wait at least five years for them

Princess Cruises has signed an agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for another two new cruise ships, for delivery in late 2023 and spring 2025.

The two 175,000-ton ships, accommodating 4,300 guests and the largest in the Princess fleet, will be line’s first to be dual-fuel powered - primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the marine industry’s most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology.

Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises, said: “This revolutionary platform for next-generation, LNG-powered cruise ships will introduce innovative design and leisure experiences driven by the future holiday and lifestyle trends of our guests – further evolving the experience we deliver today. We look forward to collaborating with Fincantieri to bring our vision for this next-generation premium cruise ship into service.”

In addition to the new orders, Princess Cruises has three new Royal-class ships on order with Fincantieri, including its next new ship, Sky Princess, currently under construction and scheduled for delivery in October 2019. The two other Royal-class ships are planned for delivery in 2020 and 2022.
