Die "neue revulutionäre" Schiffklasse wird dann sicher die Auia Nova mit angepasster Bugbemalung und Princess Schornstein. Kennt man ja von Carnival so.

Noch mehr solcher Riesenbrocken?

Na toll, dann wird man in Zukunft immer und immer wieder die gleichen Häfen sehen können - bis man dort die Nase voll hat und Obergrenzen für Passagiere / Schiffsanläufe festlegt. Irgendwann wir dann der Tag erreicht sein, an dem die Routenplaner in ihren Büros verzweifeln, weil sie keine vernünftige Route mehr hinbekommen, da überall die täglichen Höchstgrenzen erreicht sind.

Aber ich vergaß - wir Kunden wünschen uns doch so große Schiffe, mit denen wir kaum noch Häfen anlaufen können mit all ihren Sehenswürdigkeiten, sondern wollen uns an Bord mit all den tollen neuen Annehmlichkeiten amüsieren.

Naja, sind wir mal gespannt, wohin die Reise führt ...

Hallo allerseits,

ich lagere dies mal aus, da es nichts mit der ursprünglichen Carnival-Großbestellung bei Meyer und Fincantieri zu tun hat.

Und hier noch die PMs von Carnival Coproration & plc und Fincantieri zum Thema:
Princess Cruises to Build Two Next Generation LNG Cruise Ships

New ship order represents the largest and most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology ships for Princess, a leading international premium cruise line.

SANTA CLARITA, Calif., July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Princess Cruises, a leading global cruise brand of Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL; NYSE: CUK), the world's largest leisure travel company, today announced a memorandum of agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. to build two new cruise ships on a next-generation platform designed to further enhance an already world-class vacation experience for its guests. The new builds are slated to be delivered in late 2023 and spring 2025, respectively.

The new vessels will be Princess Cruises' first ships to be dual-fuel powered -- primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the marine industry's most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology and the world's cleanest burning fossil fuel, which will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil (MGO). The new ships, which will be the largest by capacity in the Princess Cruises fleet, will be built at Fincantieri's shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

"This revolutionary platform for next-generation, LNG-powered cruise ships will introduce innovative design and leisure experiences driven by the future vacation and lifestyle trends of our guests – further evolving the already best-in-class Princess Cruises experience we deliver today," said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. "We look forward to collaborating with Fincantieri to bring our vision for this next- generation premium cruise ship into service," added Swartz.

The two ships will be 175,000 gross tons and will accommodate approximately 4,300 guests (lower berths). Specification details for the ship design, along with anticipated features and amenities of this all-new platform design for Princess Cruises, will be shared in the future.

Added Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri: "We are proud to extend our long-established partnership with Princess Cruises, a brand we have been tied to since our return to the cruise ship building industry in 1990. After so many years, we are ready to enter, together, a new era of this industry, increasingly aimed at reducing even more of our environmental impact. We proudly do this with an all-time record project, both in terms of size and technology. We believe that there are no more significant milestones than these to reaffirm our market-leading position. This builds upon the solid partnership between our country and Carnival Corporation -- the largest foreign investor in Italy – while at the same time building upon our technological strength and increasing employment."

In addition to today's news, Princess Cruises has three new Royal-class ships on order with Fincantieri, including its next new ship, Sky Princess, which is currently under construction and scheduled for delivery in October 2019. The two other Royal-class ships are planned for delivery in 2020 and 2022.

The agreement for Princess Cruises' next-generation cruise ships represent Carnival Corporation's 10th and 11th contracted LNG-based vessels and are part of the company's ongoing fleet enhancement strategy, aimed at creating excitement in the vacation market while accelerating demand for cruising, the fastest growing segment in the vacation industry. Carnival Corporation currently has 20 new ships under contract and scheduled for delivery between 2018 and 2025.

Trieste, July 23, 2018 – Fincantieri has signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with Princess Cruises, brand of Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s largest cruise ship operator, for the construction of two next-generation 175,000-ton cruise ships which will be the largest ships built so far in Italy with deliveries scheduled in Monfalcone in late 2023 and in spring 2025.

The vessels will accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be based on a next-generation platform design, being the first Princess Cruises’ ships to be dual-fuel powered primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), the marine industry’s most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology and the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel, which will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil.

“This revolutionary platform for next-generation, LNG-powered cruise ships will introduce innovative design and leisure experiences driven by the future vacation and lifestyle trends of our guests – further evolving the already best-in-class Princess Cruises experience we deliver today. We look forward to collaborating with Fincantieri to bring our vision for this next- generation premium cruise ship into service” said Jan Swartz, President of Princess Cruises.

While commenting the announcement, Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, stated: “We are proud to further extend our long-established partnership with Princess Cruises, a brand we are indeed tied to since our comeback to the cruise ship industry in 1990. After so many years, we are getting ready to enter, together, into a new era of our industry, increasingly aimed at reducing environmental impact. We proudly do this with an all-time record project, both in terms of size and technological level”. Bono concluded: “We believe that there are no more significant milestones than these to reaffirm the market-leading positions we achieved. They allow us to keep a solid partnership between our country and the Carnival group - the largest foreign investor in Italy - and at the same time to maintain know-how and increase employment”.

Fincantieri has built 85 cruise ships since 1990 (62 from 2002), 65 of which for Carnival’s different brands, while other 49, including agreements, are currently being designed or built in the Group’s yards.

Die neue Klasse soll wohl im Juni vorgestellt werden aber da kursieren schon erste Bilder. Auf dem ersten Blick wirkt das alles ähnlich wie die Seaside und Co..
