Princess Cruises Discovery Princess Floats Out

Submitted by kgnadmin on

The float out ceremony of the cruise ship Discovery Princess, took place today at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The 145,000 gross tons Discovery Princess is the sixth ship of the Royal class, built on the basis of the successful project for Princess Cruises, further consolidating Fincantieri's long-time partnership with Carnival Corporation. The shipyard will now start Interior fittings, leading the vessel to delivery, scheduled for 2022.

Like her sister ships, the vessel will represent a new technological benchmark worldwide for her innovative layout, outstanding performances and the top quality of its state-of-the-art marine technology.

The partnership between the Monfalcone yard and Princess Cruises will continue with two next-generation cruise ships. These will be the largest built so far in Italy with a gross-tonnage of 175,000 tons, will accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be the first of the ship owner's fleet to be dual-fuel powered primarily by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
