The fourth Royal Class ship will feature the same design as Majestic Princess, pictured above
Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri cut the first piece of steel for Princess Cruises’ fourth Royal Class ship at its yard in Castellammare di Stabia on 3 November.
Scheduled for delivery in 2019, the newbuild features the same design as her sister ships, Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess.
“Today’s steel cutting of Hull 6268 signals the continuation of a 16-year partnership that has delivered some of the most spectacular and innovative cruise ships at sea for Princess Cruises,” said Keith Taylor, Princess Cruises’ executive vice president of fleet operations. “We are delighted with the longevity of our partnership with Fincantieri and know that this next ship will follow on the successful design platform demonstrated with her sister ships.”
