The steel cutting ceremony for the fourth Royal-class ship for Princess Cruises was held Nov. 3 at Fincantieri shipyard in Castellammare di Stabia, Italy.

The ship will be delivered in 2019 and is a sister to the Royal, Regal and Majestic ships.

“Today’s steel cutting of Hull 6268 signals the continuation of a 16 year partnership that has delivered some of the most spectacular and innovative cruise ships at sea for Princess Cruises,” said Keith Taylor, Princess Cruises executive vice president of fleet operations. “We are delighted with the longevity of our partnership with Fincantieri and know that this next ship will follow on the successful design platform demonstrated with her sister ships.”
