New Princess Cruises Ship to join fleet in 2019

It has confirmed that Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri will build a new Princess Cruises ship, which will enter service in late 2019. The as-yet unnamed 143,000-ton vessel, which will be built at a cost of approximately 600 million Euros, will carry 3,560 guests.

The announcement, made last week by Princess Cruises’ parent company, Carnival Corporation, will increase Princess’ fleet to 19. The vessel will be a sister ship to Royal Princess (launched in Southampton in 2013 by HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge), Regal Princess (launched 2014) and Majestic Princess (launching 2017).

The new ship will include signature elements of Princess Cruises’ previous vessels including the vast central atrium hub with multiple dining, entertainment and retail venues; Movies Under the Stars outdoor cinema experience; The Sanctuary top-deck relaxation area; and the Lotus Spa. The ship will additionally include brand-new innovations that will be announced in due course.

Princess Cruises will confirm the ship’s deployment at a later date.

Tony Roberts, vice president of Princess Cruises UK, said: “We’re incredibly excited to confirm that Princess Cruises’ growth continues with the order of another royal class ship. Demand and confidence in Princess has never been higher and we’re delighted that in just a few years’ time even more guests will get the chance to travel with us in style to over 360 destinations across the world.”
