Fincantieri to build 'next-generation' Cunard cruise ship

A drawing of a cruise liner to be built for Cunard

Carnival Corporation has announced that it has signed a memorandum of agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. to build a new cruise ship for the company's Cunard brand.

The agreement will become operational when the financial and technical conditions are satisfied. Last summer, Cunard completed a massive $132 million renovation to its Queen Mary 2 ship that included transforming the interior public spaces and adding new staterooms to the ship, built in 2004.

When the as-yet-unnamed ship will enter service in 2022, it will be the first time since 1998 that the brand's fleet will consist of four ships.

It will be the company's first new ship in 12 years, since the launch of Queen Elizabeth in 2010.

Alongside an array of exciting new itineraries featuring new destinations and special event voyages for 2018 and 2019, Cunard has also continued to evolve the guest experience to meet the needs of the luxury consumer by introducing new bar and dining signatures, entertainment offerings and brand partners across the fleet. The 113,000-tonne ship will carry 3,000 guests and be the 249th to fly the Cunard flag. "This includes replacing less efficient ships with more efficient vessels over time as part of our managed capacity growth". It is a lasting journey that, besides the construction of the two authentic "queens" like "Queen Victoria" and "Queen Elizabeth", stresses the importance of our partnership with Carnival.

Mr Bono said Fincantieri has built 63 ships for Carnival Group, "representing today nearly two-thirds of their fleet, with nine to come in the coming years". "A cooperation which can be defined as historical, based on relationships of mutual respect and trust".

With this new ship agreement, Carnival Corporation now has 18 new ships scheduled to be delivered to its portfolio of leading global cruise brands between 2018 and 2022.
