Princess Cruises has announced plans to build two new cruise ships slated to be delivered in late 2023 and spring 2025. The two ships will be 175,000 gross tonnes and accommodate approximately 4,300 guests. Details for the ship’s design, along with features and amenities of this new concept for Princess Cruises, will be revealed in a few months. The new vessels will be the company’s first ships to be dual-fuel powered - primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas which will significantly reduce air emissions, as well as marine gasoil. The new ships, which will be the largest by capacity in the Princess Cruises fleet, will be built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises, said, “This revolutionary platform for next-generation, LNG-powered cruise ships will introduce innovative design and leisure experiences driven by the future holiday and lifestyle trends of our guests – further evolving the already best-in-class Princess Cruises’ experience we deliver today. We look forward to collaborating with Fincantieri to bring our vision for this next-generation premium cruise ship into service.”

From its inception fifty years ago Princess Cruises has been instrumental in creating the relaxed, casual atmosphere that typifies holidays afloat. A Princess cruise is the essence of warm, inviting, and comfortable cruising. Often trendsetters in facilities and amenities, Princess Cruises’ ships have a thoroughbred environment, nothing too flashy or exaggerated – where everyone can feel at home whether they’re in a lavish Grand Suite or a modest inside cabin. New ships in the fleet represent more of an evolution than a revolution, ensuring the company’s loyal guests have the consistency which they seek, while all the time keeping on-trend and on-message.


A defining quality of Princess Cruises is its cuisine. The entire fleet has been inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Fans of Italian cuisine are in for a treat as there is an underlying nod to that country’s impeccable cuisine, nowhere more so than in the signature Sabatini’s. The company was also one of the first to introduce ‘Personal Choice Dining’ – a flexible dining room option that has been well received particularly by British guests.


In addition to today’s news, Princess Cruises has three new Royal-class ships on order with Fincantieri, including its next new ship, Sky Princess, which is currently under construction and scheduled for delivery in October 2019. The two other Royal-class ships are planned for delivery in 2020 and 2022. We have a wealth of knowledge about each ship in the Princess Cruises’ fleet, to find out more call 0800 484 0370.
