Carnival to build fourth ship for Cunard

Carnival to build fourth ship for Cunard”

With this announcement, Carnival Corporation now has 18 new ships scheduled to be delivered and added to its line between 2018 and 2022.

Fincantieri, leader in cruise ship design and construction, and Carnival Corporation & plc, the world's largest cruise company, announced today the signing of a memorandum of agreement (MoA) for the construction of one next-generation cruise ship for the iconic luxury brand Cunard.

Cunard will be revealing exciting details about the new ship during the course of 2018 and through to the ship's launch.

"Cunard offers unrivalled luxury ocean experiences and the new ship firmly underpins our plans to continue our growth across global markets", added Palethorpe.

Cunard has announced plans to add a fourth ship to its fleet.

And Queen Elizabeth is set for an upgrade later next year.

The senior vice president of Cunard, Simon Palethorpe, said: "We have only recently marked the 50th anniversary of one of Cunard's much loved ocean liners, the legendary QE2".

Already in 2015, Cunard saw over a million celebrate the line's 175th anniversary, and the company has since invested more than $172 million revitalizing the Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria. It debuted with a metamorphosis that "makes it feel like a brand new ship". The line continues to offer additional bar, dining and entertainment options, plus brand partnerships.

The yet-unnamed new ship will register at 113,000 gross tons with space for about 3,000 passengers, making it substantially larger than its three sister ships, which each carry 2,000 to 2,700 passengers. A new video showcases it below. The new yet-to-be-named vessel will be the 249th ship to sail for Cunard, which was founded in 1839.

Given its target size, it's likely to be closer in classification to the 90,900-ton Queen Elizabeth than the 148,528-ton Queen Mary 2. Fincantieri has built 78 cruise ships since 1990 (55 from 2002), 63 of which for Carnival's different brands, while other 33, including agreements, are now being designed or built in the Group's yards, 9 of which for the shipowners of the American group.
