Fincantieri and Princess Cruises launched the bow section

Published on : Saturday, February 3, 2018

Fincantieri and Princess Cruises launched the bow section Fincantieri and Princess Cruises held a unique launch ceremony for the bow section of the line’s fourth Royal-class ship, to be named Sky Princess in Castellammare di Stabia (Naples) on February 1, 2018.

 

 

The bow section launched off a traditional inclined slipway is approximately 426 feet long, 141 feet wide, 82 feet high and weighs about 7,600 tons.  The bow section will be transported by sea to Monfalcone, Italy where it will be assembled with the rest of the ship being constructed by Fincantieri. Sky Princess is scheduled to debut in October 2019 on a series of Mediterranean voyages.

 

 

The 143,700 ton, 3,660-passenger vessel will feature an evolution of the successful design platform used for previous Royal-class ships – Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess.

 

 

Sky Princess will include signature elements that have become synonymous with the brand’s best-in-class guest experience, and bring together the best features found on her Royal-class sister ships.

 

 

“The ship building process is truly something to marvel and each completed milestone is something to celebrate,” said Rai Caluori, Princess Cruises executive vice president guest experience and product development.  “Today, with our long-standing partners at Fincantieri, we uniquely launched the bow section of Sky Princess and the team at Fincantieri will invest more than 2 million man-hours to complete her.”
