German line TUI Cruises will be building two new ships as part of a new class of vessels. The new 161,000gt vessels will be built at Fincantieri’s Monfalcone yard and will be their largest ever built (Princess’ Royal-class is 142,714gt). These two ships will be of a new class of vessels as their current ships max out at only 110,000gt.

TUI is the German-only brand that is jointly owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd and tour operator TUI AG.
