Shipbuilding: Fincantieri signs $542M Cruise Ship Deal
Positive momentum in the cruise sector continues, as Fincantieri signed a $543M contract with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. for the construction of one new ultra-luxury cruise ship for the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brand to be delivered in 2023.
The new vessel will be a sister ship to “Seven Seas Explorer”, which took the sea in 2016, and to “Seven Seas Splendor”, due to delivery in 2020.
With about 54,000 tons, the unit will be able to accommodate up to 750 guests on board and she will be the brand’s sixth-all-suite vessel in Regent’s fleet. As her sister ships, the new vessel will be built using the very latest environmental protection technologies.
