Work begins on fourth Royal Class Ship for Princess Cruises

New build design follows sister ships Royal, Regal, and Majestic Princess, and is scheduled for delivery in 2019

The steel cutting ceremony of the bow section of the fourth Royal Class ship for Princess Cruises was held Nov. 3 at Fincantieri shipyard in Castellammare di Stabia, Italy.

This new build design follows sister ships Royal, Regal, and Majestic Princess, and is scheduled for delivery in 2019.


“Today’s steel cutting of Hull 6268 signals the continuation of a 16 year partnership that has delivered some of the most spectacular and innovative cruise ships at sea for Princess Cruises,” said Keith Taylor, Princess Cruises executive vice president of fleet operations.

“We are delighted with the longevity of our partnership with Fincantieri and know that this next ship will follow on the successful design platform demonstrated with her sister ships.”
