Norwegian Cruise Line Leonardo Class ship construction timelapse – 300m length – Fincantieri

TIMELAPSELAB back to Marghera, in charge of resuming the construction of NCL’s new Leonardo Class ship using three TL8 devices. The entire shipyard will last 12 months, the ship will have a gross tonnage of approximately 140,000 tons and will be able to accommodate approximately 3,300 guests, with an overall length of 300 meters.

In 2020 Fincantieri operated 5 ships with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCL), the US group that includes the cruise brands Norwegian Cruise Line (Ncl), Oceania and Regent Seven Seas. The Group is investing significantly in Europe and in recent years especially in Italy.

Harry Sommer, CEO of NCL explains the new Leonardo ship: «It is 15% shorter than the average and with a passenger capacity 25% lower to be able to expand the offer of destinations – some ports, in fact, are not able to host ships that are too large – and to target a higher range of customers: passengers who need more personalized services ».

Internally they will feature a breathtaking design that will offer guests a flexible experience thanks to an incredible variety of proposals and additional integrated indoor and outdoor spaces that will allow them to get more in touch and in tune with the sea.

Thanks to their design, they will optimize fuel consumption to reduce the environmental impact.

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is among the top cruise groups in the world. In addition to NCL, it includes the Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, for which Fincantieri delivered the extra-luxury unit “Seven Seas Explorer” to Sestri Ponente (Genoa) in 2016 and is now building a twin unit with delivery expected in 2020 in Ancona, and Oceania Cruises, for which the group built “Marina” and “Riviera” respectively in 2011 and 2012 at the Sestri shipyard.
