Asia’s largest cruise line Star Cruises has ordered a second 150,000 ton cruise ship which will be purpose-built for the Asian market. This will be the second of two ships now to be built by the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

The cruise line had already ordered a ship of the same class back in October 2013 so this just conforms that Asia is going to be a huge market in the future and now we see the new large mega cruise ship trend arriving in Asia.

The new order is expected to be delivered to Star Cruises by fall 2017. The ship will be 330 meters in length, will be able to carry 3,300 passengers and there will be 1,680 cabins on board.
