LATEST PRINCESS FLOATS OUT AT FINCANTIERI

Wednesday, August 7, 2019 

'Enchanted Princess', the fifth Royal-class ship built for Carnival brand Princess Cruises, has been floated out at Fincantieriís shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

Interior fitting out will now begin, leading the vessel to its delivery, scheduled in 2020. The 145,000gt cruise ship is a sister ship to Royal Princess, Regal Princess, Majestic Princess and the upcoming Sky Princess, built and delivered in the same shipyard starting from 2013, comprising a new generation of ships which have been well received by passengers.

Like its sister ships, Enchanted Princess is said to represent a new technological benchmark in Europe and worldwide for its innovative layout, outstanding performance and the quality of its technology, consolidating Fincantieri’s long-time partnership with Carnival Corporation, the largest cruise ship operator.

The partnership between the Monfalcone yard and Princess Cruises will continue with two next-generation cruise ships. These will be the largest built so far in Italy with a gross-tonnage of 175,000 tons, expected to be delivered at the end of 2023 and in spring 2025. The vessels will accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be the first of the ship owner’s fleet to be dual-fuel powered primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

Fincantieri has built 92 cruise ships since 1990 (of which 66 ships are for Carnival Corporation and 16 ships for Princess Cruises), and another 54 ships are currently being designed or built in the Group's yards.
