Cruise Line news

The news about the stretching of the Enchantment of the Seas and other vessels to make them more competitive with the largest megaships. The ink was hardly dry on that newsletter when Carnival Corporation placed a $2 billion, four-ship order that confirmed that the cruise industry thinks bigger will be better for the foreseeable future. There are 12 brands in the Carnival Corp family, and ships were ordered for Carnival, Princess, Holland America and Costa.

Topping the list is a 3,608-passenger, 130,000-ton ship for Carnival Cruise Lines, the largest vessel ever built for Carnival. The ship is slated to enter service in the fall of 2009 and there is an option for a sister ship that would be launched in the summer of 2010.

Holland America Line will also receive its largest ship to date, a 2,044-passenger, 86,000-ton Panamax vessel to be launched in the summer of 2008. ("Panamax" vessels are built to the maximum width that can fully transit the Panama Canal.) There is an option for a sister ship that would be launched in spring 2010.

A 3,100-passenger, 116,000-ton ship will be built for Princess Cruises. The ship will be a sister to the Emerald Princess and will launch in the fall of 2008. And a 3,004-passenger, 112,000-ton ship will be built for Costa Cruises. The ship will be a sister to the Costa Concordia and will debut in summer 2009.
