Virgin Voyages has signed a €700 million deal to build a fourth cruise ship.
Fincantieri will construct the vessel, which will be delivered at the end of 2023.
The new ship will be a sister ship to the three others on order. Construction is underway at the Sestri Ponente shipyard in Genoa and the first three ships will enter Virgin Voyages’ fleet in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
The fourth vessel will be approximately 110,000 gross tons, 278 meters long and 38 meters wide.
It will feature more than 1,400 guest cabins designed to host more than 2,770 passengers.
The ships will be equipped with an energy production system of approximately 1 MW, which uses the diesel engine’s waste heat.
