Fincantieri has delivered Carnival Breeze for Carnival Cruise Lines, part of Carnival Corporation & plc. The Carnival Breeze is the 30th cruise ship built by Monfalcone yard and the most innovative Fun Ship of Carnival, the world’s leading cruise ship operator.
Present at the ceremony were the President and CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines, Gerry Cahill, while Fincantieri was represented by both the company’s CEO, Giuseppe Bono and the Chairman, Corrado Antonini.
Measuring in at 130,000 gross tonnes, and at 306 metres long and 37 metres wide, the Carnival Breeze is sister to the Carnival Dream and the Carnival Magic, which Monfalcone delivered in 2009 and 2011 respectively.
With the construction of the Carnival Breeze Fincantieri further consolidates its position as record builder of the largest passenger vessels in the history of Italian shipbuilding.
Indeed the new ship has 1,845 passenger cabins in addition to 746 cabins for the crew, for a total capacity of over 6,200 people. A record figure for the ships built to date for Carnival by Fincantieri.
The Carnival Breeze embodies the highest standards of comfort and offers her passengers a wide range of entertainment on board, including bars, restaurants, theatres, shops and wellness centres. The ship features a completely renewed design, based on tropical atmospheres with warm colours and pastel shades. There is also a new approach to accommodation with the availability of a greater number of sea view cabins with two bathrooms, ideally suited for larger families of up to five.
Since 1990 Fincantieri has built 63 cruise ships, of which 55 for Carnival Group, and a further 5 are under construction at Fincantieri shipyards.
