Fincantieri and Crystal Sign MoA to Build Two High-end Cruise Ships

Today, Fincantieri and Crystal announced the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) for the construction of two state-of-the-art, high-end cruise ships, with an option for a third.

The new ships will boast a gross tonnage of 61,800 tons and will be capable of accommodating 690 passengers. The interiors will be designed by renowned international architectural firms using the finest materials and craftsmanship.

This commitment to comfort is complemented by one of the highest crew-to-passenger ratios in the segment, ensuring personalised service and meticulous attention to detail.

The value of the contract, which is subject to financing and other conditions, is estimated to be significant. Delivery of the first ship is scheduled for spring 2028, with further details on the second ship to be announced in due course.

The collaboration between Fincantieri and Crystal represents a strong commitment to luxury and innovation in the cruise industry, promising a superior travel experience for guests.

Pierroberto Folgiero, CEO and Managing Director of Fincantieri commented, “This order not only highlights the robust recovery of the cruise sector, in line with our Industrial Plan but also reaffirms Fincantieri’s leadership, thanks to the operational excellence of our shipyards and the execution quality of our world-class supply chain.

“We are thrilled to partner with Crystal in our pursuit of innovation and excellence under the guidance of a shipowner who has always been close to our Group, like Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio.”

Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, the executive chairman of the A&K Travel Group, said, “This order is another milestone in the 40 years of collaboration between Fincantieri and my family that started with Sitmar Cruises, continued with Silversea and now is flourishing again with Crystal.

“Our aim is to continue setting a new standard in cruising by offering an unmatched level of service and sophistication.”
