Carnival Corp announced finalization and updating of the terms of the MOU they signed last September to build two 133,500-ton cruise ships with the Fincantieri/CSSC (Chinese State Shipbuilding Corp) joint venture for Carnival's j/v Chinese cruise line. This MOU also made the agreement binding.
One of the updates was that the number of options for additional ships was doubled from the original MOU from two to four. Another update was that the first ship's delivery date has slipped a year to 2023.
The complete story appeared in the February 22 edition of Cruise News Daily.
