Princess Cruises is expecting delivery of two new cruise ships in 2019 and 2020. These ships will be the fourth and fifth Royal class ships to be introduced along with sister ships Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess, scheduled to launch summer 2017 in Asia.
The yet to be named 3,560 passenger ships will include princess stapes such as Movies under the stars and balconies in 80% of the staterooms. Princess will also reveal new to the line features and the home bases for the ships.
The line's parent company, Carnival Corp., and Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. has 16 ships scheduled for delivery between 2016 and 2020.
"We are incredibly proud and excited to add two new ships to our already formidable fleet," said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. "With this new ship commitment Princess Cruises will continue to grow and expand globally as the world's destination leader in premium cruising."
