The crocieristico group Carnival American orders two new ships estern Fincantieri

An unit of 99.000 tsl will be delivered in 2015 to Holland America Line; the other of 135.000 tsl will be completed in 2016 and employed from Carnival Cruise Lines

The program of new constructions of the main world-wide crocieristiche companies is not stopped. The American Carnival Corporation & plc, leader of the world-wide market, in fact has decided to increase the fleet of others two ships, that they will be destined to the Holland America Line marks and Carnival Cruise Lines of the American group and that they will be realized by the navalmeccanico group Italian Fincantieri, in its turn leader in the section of the constructions of ships from cruise.

The agreement with the navalmeccanica society previews the construction of a ship of 99.000 tons of destined tonnage to Holland America Line who will have an ability to 2.660 passengers and will be delivered in the autumn of 2015 and of a ship of 135.000 tons of tonnage that will have an ability to 4.000 passengers and will be delivered to Carnival Cruise Lines in the winter of 2016.

The crocieristico group has announced that the total investment for the two ships will be pairs to approximately 195.000 dollars for low bed.

Carnival Corporation has specified that the new ship for Holland America Line will be an unit of new class that will enter in service five years after the Nieuw Amsterdam, the last ship taken in delivery in 2010 from the company. Also the destined ship to Carnival Cruise Lines will be of new class and will be taken in delivery four years after the commissioning of the last ship of the fleet, the Carnival Breeze, that the slid spring has become operating.

“The today's order - it has commented the president and managing director of Carnival Corporation, Micky Arison - continues the strategy of the company to introduce per year from two to three ships between the 10 brands of the group. We have strategically time the introduction of these new ships for giving time to these marks to ulteriorly increase their base of passengers and to absorb the new ability diminishing the dilution of the returns in the remaining part of their current fleets”.

“These ulterior orders - it has emphasized the managing director of Fincantieri, Giuseppe Bono - carry to 61 the number total of the ships that we have constructed for Carnival Corporation & pcl and confirm the world-wide leadership of Fincantieri in the field of the ships from cruise also in a moment of slow down of the question. We consider that these orders constitute a very positive impulse for the Italian economy and the entire crocieristica industry”.

Currently the fleet of the Carnival group is constituted by 100 ships subdivided between the marks Carnival Cruise Lines (24 ships), Princess Cruises (16 ships), Holland America Line (15 ships), Costa Crociere (14 ships), P&O Cruises (UK) (7 ships), Cunard (3 ships), Seabourn (6 ships), AIDA Cruises (9 ships), P&O Cruises (Australia) (3 ships) and Iberocruceros (3 ships). With the two tidy ships today to Fincantieri the pocketbook orders of the Carnival group is constituted by nine new destined ships to the marks Carnival Cruise Lines (1 ship), Costa Crociere (1 ship), AIDA Cruises (3 ships), Holland America Line (1 ship), P&O Cruises (UK) (1 ship), Princess Cruises (2 ships).
