Work has started on another large cruise ship for Princess Cruises. The ship will be the fourth Royal class vessel.

A steel cutting ceremony was held at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy which officially begins physical work on the future cruise ship. The major milestone is the first of many and the ceremony was attended by executives from the shipyard and cruise line.

Fincantieri is using two facilities to build the Princess cruise ship, a bow section already started being constructed last November at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Castellammare di Stabia (Naples). The block is set to be transported on the water to join the main construction yard in Monfalcone.

The yet to be named vessel will be identical to Royal Princess, Regal Princess, and Majestic Princess but as usual when it comes to new cruise ships there will probably be something new and unique featured onboard.
