MEYER WERFT and the cruising and leisure travel company Carnival Corporation (USA) have signed a contract for delivery of one additional cruise ship in January 2018. This new ship will be integrated in the fleet of the British cruising company P&O Cruises in 2022. The first ship of this type will be delivered to P&O Cruises in spring 2020.
The new ships for P&O Cruises will be rated with more than 180,000 GT and have capacity for 5,200 passengers each. In the framework of the Green Cruising concept, the ships will be among the first cruise ships to run 100% on LNG, which makes them very environmentally friendly.
