Two new cruise ships to hit the seven seas

Article content

23 February 2010

Two more ships are to be added to the Princess Cruises fleet, with the company hoping to bring them into service in 2013 and 2014.

The luxury liners are to be the biggest ever made for the organisation and will weigh 139,000 tonnes each, the Daily Echo reports.

Regarding this development, Carnival Corporation - which is Princess Cruises' parent company, based in Miami - said: "The agreement is subject to execution of a definitive contract, financing and other customary closing conditions."

A memorandum of agreement has been signed with Fincantieri, an Italian shipbuilder that has built Cunard's forthcoming Queen Elizabeth, as well as Ventura and Azura for P&O Cruises - both of which are to begin operating in Southampton this April.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that the inaugural journey of Allure of the Seas from Royal Caribbean International is being brought forward, taking place on 5 December, having previously been scheduled for a week later.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19631702-ADNFCR
