The Carnival Corporation has announced that it had signed a memorandum of agreement with Fincantieri to build two new cruise ships for Holland America and Princess.
With the new agreement, Carnival Corporation now has 19 new ships scheduled to be delivered between 2017 and 2022.
Holland America Line’s new ship will be built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Marghera, Italy, with an expected delivery in 2021, and the ship for Princess Cruises will be built at Fincantieri’s Monfalcone, Italy, shipyard with an expected delivery in 2022.
Holland America Line’s new 99,500-ton, 2,660-guest ship will be its third “Pinnacle” class vessel, following the design of the line’s newest and largest ship, ms Koningsdam, and its sister ship, Nieuw Statendam, scheduled for delivery in November 2018.
Princess Cruises’ new 145,000-ton ship will carry 3,660 passengers and will be its sixth “Royal” class vessel.
The two yet-to-be-named vessels also under construction by Fincantieri scheduled for delivery in 2019 and 2020.
