"The Love Boat line on Monday announced plans for two new vessels that will measure 175,000 tons – more than 20 percent bigger than its biggest ships to date.
Scheduled to debut in 2023 and 2025, respectively, the as-yet-unnamed vessels will carry approximately 4,300 passengers at double occupancy. That's about 700 more than recently unveiled Princess ships such as Regal Princess.

Princess didn't release design details for the new ships other than to say they would be powered by liquid natural gas – a first for the line.

I'm holding off on any criticism until I see the final result.
They just might have made a few changes to the Royal design that could improve some of the drawbacks of the last few ships.
Yes, it is big but larger ships are about the only way to keep up profits.

“This revolutionary platform for next-generation, LNG-powered cruise ships will introduce innovative design and leisure experiences driven by the future vacation 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” said Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz.

Fincantieri chief executive Giuseppe Bono stated “We are proud to further extend our long-established partnership with Princess Cruises, a brand we are indeed tied to since our comeback to the cruise ship industry in 1990. After so many years, we are getting ready to enter, together, into a new era of our industry, increasingly aimed at reducing environmental impact. We proudly do this with an all-time record project, both in terms of size and technological level”.
