Also in October, MSC Cruises formalized its plans to enter the luxury cruise sector, ordering four 1,000-berth ships from Fincantieri, with introductions to take place annually starting in 2023. With a fleet of megaships, and now four luxury ships, MSC is only missing a footprint in the expedition space.

Hurtigruten made it official with Kleven for a third Explorer-style vessel, for delivery in the second quarter of 2022.

Finally, Virgin Voyages picked up another slot at Fincantieri for a late 2023 delivery of another Lady-class vessel, making it four vessels in the new cruise operators initial ship series.

With an orderbook of 120 ships, the average passenger capacity per ship is 2,356 guests, with an average tonnage of 94,941. The average price per berth is estimated at $252,950 by Cruise Industry News.
