And That Ain’t All

Yesterday we reported that Crystal contracted for a total of eight new ships (including six river vessels) with the Lloyd Werft Group of yards. Parent company (of both Crystal and Lloyd Werft) Genting Hong Kong also had another order up their sleeve.

At the same time, they ordered two additional ships from Lloyd for their Star Cruise brand. With them, it seems Star is being positioned to make an impact both in the Chinese market and the global cruise industry.

The two ships ordered from Lloyd Werft are the first of a class which Star is calling “Global Class” and are sized at a whopping 201,000 gross tons with 5,000 lower berths.

The complete story appeared in the May 11 edition of Cruise News Daily.
