New construction photos have been released from the popular Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany of the next new Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

Princess Cruises and its parent company Carnival Corporation has finalised an agreement for two new ships. The agreement was completed on April 2 during a ceremony at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Marghera.

The two new ships for Princess Cruises will be the fourth and fifth in the Royal class and will enter service in 2019 and 2020. The unnamed 143,700-ton, 3,560-passenger ships will be sister ships to Royal Princess, Regal Princess and the under construction Majestic Princess which is being purpose-built for the Chinese market.

Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises said:

“We are incredibly proud and excited to add two new ships to our already formidable fleet.”  With this new ship commitment Princess Cruises will continue to grow and expand globally as the world’s destination leader in premium cruising.”

The new Princess ships will include the signature elements that have become synonymous with the brand’s best-in-class guest experience featuring a soaring central atrium, multiple dining, entertainment and retail venues; outdoor theater experience; and 80 percent of all staterooms with balconies. The ships will also include new innovations to enhance the guest experience even further.

Specific features and amenities for the ships, along with deployment details, will be revealed in the near future. Cruise Hive previously reported the Carnival Corporation finalised a total of 5 new cruise ships including Costa Cruises, Princess Cruises and P&O Australia.
