Carnival Corporation to Build Another Four Cruise Ships for Three Lines

Cruise News – Dec. 30, 2015

Carnival Corporation has announced that it has signed a memo of agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. to build four new cruise ships: two for Costa Asia for deployment in China, and one each for P&O Cruises Australia and Princess Cruises.

The two new 135,500-ton ships for Costa Asia and one new ship for P&O Cruises Australia will carry 4,200 passengers. Princess Cruises’ new 143,700-ton ship will carry 3,560 passengers and will be the line’s fourth Royal Princess–class ship, featuring the successful design platform used on Royal Princess, Regal Princess, and Majestic Princess, which is scheduled for delivery in 2017 for the Chinese market.

“These strategic investments in new ships that wow our guests are an important part of our measured growth strategy, which includes replacing less efficient ships with newer, larger, and more efficient vessels over a very specific period of time,” said Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation.

Each of the four new ships will be specifically designed and developed for the brand and guests it will serve. Specific features and amenities for the ships, along with deployment details, will be revealed in the coming months. With the new agreement, Carnival Corporation now has 17 new ships scheduled to be delivered between 2016 and 2020.
