Not So Fast

At MSC Meraviglia's handover on Wednesday at the STX France yard, newly-elected French president Emmanuel Macron, said he wants to review (and possibly renegotiate) the agreement to sell a 48% stake of the yard to Fincantieri before the sale is finalized.

Macron is concerned that French jobs could be lost or that business that would have been won by the French yard will be diverted to Fincantieri's multiple Italian yards.

The complete story appeared in the June 2 edition of Cruise News Daily.
