The float out of ‘Sun Princess’, the first of two LNG cruise ships for Princess Cruises, has taken place in Monfalcone.

At 175,500 gt ‘Sun Princess’ is the largest ship built thus far in Italy, as well as the first LNG cruise ship built by Fincantieri, and the first dual-fuel vessel powered primarily by LNG to enter Princess’ fleet.

‘Sun Princess’ will be delivered in the first quarter of next year and will premier the new ‘Sphere’ class, which includes a sistership to be delivered in 2025.

They will each accommodate around 4,300 guests and are based on a next-generation platform design.
