Princess orders two new BIG ships

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On May - 4 - 2010

Carnival Corporation has announced that it has ordered two new ships for its Princess Cruises brand to be built by Fincantieri shipyards. Both ships will be 141,000-tons each and carry 3,600 passengers – deliveries are slated for spring 2013 and spring 2014.

Carnival stated the per berth costs will be approximately €155,000 ($204,000). The company says the ships’ design will keep with the themes of the line’s newest vessels, but will features new innovations such as the addition of balconies to all outside cabins, bringing the percentage of balconies on the ships to 80 percent of all staterooms. The company’s signature Piazza— a ship’s central atrium featuring dining, entertainment and retail— will be expanded, as will the Sanctuary, spa, and restaurants. Specific amenities and design elements for the new ships will be revealed over the coming months.
