Earlier this month Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) announced a delay in delivery of its first large-sized next-generation cruise ship to AIDA Cruises currently under construction at the company’s Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works in Nagasaki, which had been scheduled for delivery in September.
Now MHI has agreed with AIDA Cruises to set December as the new handover schedule of the first ship. The new schedule was decided working closely with AIDA Cruises to ensure delivery of a first-class passenger ship of the very highest levels of quality, comfort and entertainment.
MHI is constructing two new-generation cruise ships for AIDA Cruises, bringing together its full complement of shipbuilding technologies accumulated to date.
Going forward the company will continue its marketing activities to attract orders for large-size ships equipped with leading-edge technologies to reduce fuel consumption, ease environmental impact, and provide the highest levels of comfort and entertainment features.
