Fincantieri floats out eco-friendly cruise ship for Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has launched a new eco-friendly cruise ship for Regent Seven Seas Cruises, a brand of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
Like the first two vessels of its class “Seven Seas Grandeur” is 55,500 gross tons with accommodation for only 746 passengers.
The delivery is scheduled for November of this year.
Besides Regent Seven Seas Cruises, to which Fincantieri delivered “Seven Seas Explorer” (2016) and “Seven Seas Splendor” (2020), Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings operates Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL), which will receive other five Prima class ships from Fincantieri, and Oceania Cruises, for which the Group has in its orderbook two new-generation cruise ships which will start the Allura-class.
In July last year, the Italian shipbuilding company delivered the first Prima-class cruise ship to NCL.
Weighing more than 142,500 tons and measuring almost 300 metres in length, Prima-class cruise ships can accommodate 3,215 guests.
The Prima-class is based on a prototype project developed by Fincantieri with a focus on energy efficiency, a twofold aim of optimising consumption at sea and reducing environmental impact.
The cruise ships are also compliant with all the most recent regulations on this matter, the shipbuilder said.
