Navantia Shipyard Busy With Eight Cruise Ships
It’s a busy month for Navantia Shipyard in Cadiz, Spain. Eight cruise ships are in either wet or dry dock getting enhancements before returning to service.
Among the vessels are four Carnival ships, two Royal Caribbean vessels, and two Azamara ships.
Most notable at the yard is Carnival’s recent transformation of Carnival Victory into Carnival Radiance. When the ship debuts, it’ll sail Mexican Riviera voyages from Long Beach, California.
Upcoming Residential Ship Adds Larger Accommodations
Storylines, Inc. has announced that it has added more large condo cabins on its upcoming residential ship due to increased demand.
There are a number of cabin choices, from studios starting at $350,000 to 8 million dollar penthouses.
Storylines has reported a large number of requests for two and three bedroom options, so it has reconfigured some of the smaller cabins to create 84 larger ones.
Owners pay upfront to lease these accommodations for 12 to 60 years. The company’s first vessel, MV Narrative, is set to debut in 2023.
