Norwegian Cruise Line has entered an agreement with Fincantieri to build four new cruise ships due to be delivered between 2022 and 2025.
The new 140,000 GT ships will carry 3,300 passengers, and will build upon the highly successful offerings found on the brand’s most recent Breakaway-Plus Class ships. The ships will also host innovative features, and will be designed to be as energy efficient as possible – with the aim of optimising fuel consumption and reducing the impact on the environment.
The new ships are scheduled to be delivered in 2022, 2023, 2024, and 2025. Norwegian Cruise Line also has the option for two further vessels, which if ordered, would be delivered in 2026, and 2027.
“For the past 50 years, Norwegian Cruise Line has been focused on offering our guests the very best in cruising,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “It is with great excitement that we look ahead to our next 50 years, which includes this next generation of ships that will offer guests the innovative experiences that have come to define the Norwegian Cruise Line brand.”
Further details on the new £680 million ships will be announced at a later date.
