Fincantieri Delivers Royal Princess

Royal Princess became part of the Princess fleet today when Fincantieri delivered the 141,000-ton ship to Carnival Corp at the builder's Monfalcone yard.

With Princess and Fincantieri executives and Italian government officials looking on, the handover was signified by the lowering of the Fincantieri and Italian flags from the ship’s mast, to be replaced by the flags of Princess and Bermuda.

The brief video below shows the this morning's flag changing ceremony. 

Royal Princess will leave the yard on Friday for Southampton, where it will be named on June 13.
