US cruising giant Carnival Corp & Plc announced this week that it has placed an order with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri Monfalcone for a new cruise ship – its first newbuild order since December 2007.
The new ship, which will sail in the Carnival Cruises brand, is to be the third in the Dream class – catering for 3,690 passengers and costing USD738 million.
The as yet unnamed ship will enter service in the northern spring of 2012 and will follow CARNIVAL DREAM which entered service in September this year, and the second of the class, CARNIVAL MAGIC which is due to enter service in May 2011.
