Carnival Corporation reached an agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for the construction of four new cruise ships worth more than $2 billion, along with options for two additional vessels.

Including the four new vessels, Carnival Corporation’s capacity growth for 2008 and 2009 is now expected to be 8.2 percent and 6.4 percent, respectively.
