VIRGIN ORDERS FOURTH CRUSIESHIP FROM FINCANTIERI

Thursday, November 1, 2018 

Italian builder Fincantieri has been contracted to build a fourth cruise ship for Virgin Voyages. The new vessel will be a sister to the three ships on order with Fincantieri and is scheduled for delivery towards the end of 2023. The first three ships will enter Virgin Voyage’s fleet respectively in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

The fourth vessel will be 110,000gt, 278m long and 38m wide. The ship will feature over 1,400 guest cabins designed to host more than 2,770 passengers, accompanied by 1,100 crew members on board to deliver the famed Virgin service.

 The Virgin Voyages fleet will stand out for original design and craftsmanship. Highlights include highly innovative design solutions, specifically to address energy recovery and the reduction of the overall environmental impact. For example, ships will be equipped with an energy production system of approximately 1 MW, which uses the diesel engine’s waste heat. The result is a system that  distinguishes Virgin Voyages as they aim to create one of the cleanest fleets at sea.
