Photo of the Day: Presidents Xi, Mattarella witness signing of Carnival's first China-built ships
Miami, February 24, 2017
 

Carnival's cruise joint-venture in China has formalised an MoA with China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and Italy-based Fincantieri for the building of the world's first China-built cruise ships.

 

Terms of the initial MoA signed last September were updated, and the Carnival joint venture will order two new cruise ships with the option for four additional builds. The first ship is expected for delivery in 2023.
