Fincantieri Delivers Regal Princess

Fincantieri delivered Regal Princess to Carnival Corp Sunday at Fincantieri's Monfalcone yard. The ship, a sister to Royal Princess, will enter service on May 20 from nearby Venice.

The ceremony was low key, intended mostly for local consumption, with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in attendance. Regal Princess will sail in the Mediterranean this summer. It will be officially named when it is repositioned to the US this fall for its winter Caribbean season.
