Rostock based Neptun Werft GmbH, a subsidiary of Meyer Werft GmbH, will build and deliver large floating engine room units for these ships. These units include the main engine rooms and the LNG tank compartment with all associated equipment, systems and outfitting. Both new ships will be registered in the UK.
Both vessels, with industry-first “green-cruising” design, will enter service with dual-fuel engines utilizing LNG for power in port and at sea, with cleaner air emissions and improved air quality.
The new ship is part of Carnival Corporation’s ongoing fleet enhancement strategy with 19 new ships scheduled for delivery between 2018 and 2022 – creating excitement in the vacation market and continuing to exceed guest expectations while accelerating demand for cruising, the fastest growing segment in the vacation industry.
Carnival UK president Josh Weinstein said: “We are seeing the momentum in awareness of cruising both across the media and in our national psyche as ever-increasing numbers of people see first-hand the value for money, unrivalled service and extraordinary onboard experience. These two next-generation ships for delivery in the next four years are real and tangible evidence of our absolute optimism for future growth.”
