Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled renderings of its new class of cruise ships, titled “Project Leonardo”.
Last month the company announced its intentions to build four new ships, which will be built by Fincantieri. The four new ships are due to launch in 2022, 2023, 2024, and 2025. Each will be 140,000 GT and carry 3,300 guests.
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.
Norwegian Cruise Line also has the option for two further vessels, which if ordered, would be delivered in 2026, and 2027.
Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said: “We are very proud of the innovative design of these ships and recognise the various stakeholders of the export chain who have contributed decisively to achieving this goal. The significant value of the order will provide substantial economic benefits by extending the employment horizon of our shipyards, and we are honoured to support the growth of our country’s economy.”
