"Princess Cruises and Fincantieri has announced the signing of the final contracts for the construction of two next-generation 175,000-ton cruise ships, which will be the largest ships built so far in Italy with deliveries scheduled in Monfalcone in late 2023 and in spring 2025.

This announcement follows the initial signing of a memorandum of agreement between the two parties in July 2018.

The vessels will each accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be based on a next-generation platform design, being the first Princess Cruises ships to be dual-fuel powered primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). LNG is the marine industry’s most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology and the world’s cleanest fossil fuel, which will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil usage."

"At the moment Princess Cruises has a total of five vessels on order with two of them under construction and including the two ships in today’s announcement. Sky Princess is in the final stages of construction and will be the fourth Royal class ship arriving this year. Enchanted Princess will be the fifth Royal class ship and will join the fleet in 2020. The final yet to be named sixth Royal class vessel is scheduled to be delivered in 2022. The royal class ships are currently the largest in the fleet at 143,700 gross tons."
