The steel cutting of the first LNG cruise ship started at Centro Servizi Navali, a company specialised in logistics and production of sheet metal for the Fincantieri yards located in northeastern Italy and the ship will be built in the Monfalcone yard.

At 175,000 gross tons, the spherical pressure vessels (‘’sphere vessels’’) are said to be the largest eco-friendly ships built in Italy so far.

Each eco-friendly vessel will accommodate approximately 4,300 guests and will be the first Princess Cruises ships to be dual-fuel powered primarily by liquefied natural gas (LNG) which is the marine industry’s most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology and the world’s cleanest fossil fuel. LNG is expected to significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil usage.

Earlier this year, Fincantieri delivered an eco-friendly cruise ship to the cruise line Holland America Line (HAL), also a part of Carnival Corporation.
