Princess Announces two new ships.

Date Posted: 06 May 2010
Princess Cruises have announced the order of two new ships from Italy's Fincantieri shipyard. The yet un-nammed 140,000 tonne 3,600 passenger super-liners will be the largest in their already impressive fleet.

The new ships are being designed to keep in line with their current newest ships the Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess and will come with additional new features and innovations. They will feature balconies on all outside cabins, which translates to 80% of all staterooms. The plans also include an increase in size for the Piazza, spa, restaurants and the ever popular Sanctury, in keeping with the standards of Princess Cruises ships.

With the sleek style, comfort and exceptional service that Princess Cruises are renowned for, these two new ships will be a welcome addition to the world of cruising. Though firm dates are yet to be published, we can expect to see the first of the ships entering service in spring 2013 with the second ship set to follow 12 months later in spring 2014.

The president and CEO of Princess Cruises, Alan Buckelew, has said "we're pleased that in this challenging economic environment, the order for these new ships is a testament to the confidence in the growth potential of the Princess brand... These new ships will include the features from our newest ships that have been so well received, and take them to the next level."

Giuseppe Bono, chief executive officer of Fincantieri, said, "We are grateful for this vote of confidence in Fincantieri. We are proud to have met the requirements of Princess Cruises, one of Carnival's most prestigious brands, with an innovative design both from a technical and architectural point of view."

More information on these exciting new liners will follow soon.
