Carnival Corporation has contracted Meyer Werft to deliver a cruise ship running on liquefied natural gas (LNG) to its Southampton-based subsidiary P&O Cruises.
The GT 180k ship, scheduled for delivery in 2022, will be able accommodate approx. 5.2k guests. Earlier, in 2020, her sister ship will be commissioned.
"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 on-board 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," Josh Weinstein, President, Carnival UK, said.
