Halifax Shipyard to Build Cruise Ships
Wednesday, September 27, 2006
The CBC has reported that Halifax Shipyard has signed contracts to build two luxury cruise ships for Pearl Seas Cruises, a Connecticut-based company.
The value of the deal, signed Tuesday, was not made public.
Pearl Seas president Charles Robertson said the company chose the Irving Shipbuilding Inc. operation because of the workers, facilities and geographic location.
The vessels will carry between 165 to 210 passengers.
The first one is expected to begin service in July 2008.
