RINA awards AIP to China’s self-developed cruise ship

RINA is issuing an approval in principal certificate to CSSC Cruise Technology Development for its design of a 150,000gt-class cruise ship.

It is the first time for China to independently research and develop a large cruise ship with independent intellectual property rights.

This for CSSC Carnival Cruise Shipping's second planned newbuild.

The design features a length of 329.4 metres and 38.4 metres width. The passenger space ratio, balcony room ratio, passenger and crew ratio, speed, ship emissions and other major technical indexes all meet the international requirements for the same type of cruise ship.

The design also increases crew room area and leisure facilities, enlarges the buffet area and ups the number of family rooms and connecting rooms that are in demand by Chinese passengers.
