Fincantieri Wins $680
Million Contract For
Two Cruise Ships
Princess Cruises, the Los-Ange- les-based cruise line, has chosen
Italy's Fincantieri to build two new cruise ships. The first vessel, a 77,000-ton ship costing an estimated $295 million, will carry 1,950 pas- sengers and enter service in the spring of 1997. The second vessel will be a 2,500-passenger vessel purpose-built for the Caribbean.
This second ship, costing an esti- mated $385 million, will be approxi- mately 90,000 tons and has fore- gone the flexibility of passing through the Panama Canal; instead it will be able to sport additional facilities and passengers. With the addition of these two ships, as well as the Sun Princess which is cur- rently under construction, the total number of ships in the Princess fleet will rise to 12 and the line's capacity will increase by 70 percent.
Both new ships will feature a high percentage of outside cabins with balconies. They will also incor- porate innovative new features to be debuted on the Sun Princess, such as an indoor/outdoor Lido din- ing facility and a spectacular health spa and children center.

The Army Corps of Engineers'
Marine Design Center has issued an invitation for bids for the design, construction, testing and delivery of a crane barge. The vessels are essentially identical except that one is furnished with a fixed, pedestal type crane and the other is designed to accommodate a rubber-tired, rough terrain, mobile crane. Each vessel is approximately 150 feet (45.7 m) long, 50 feet (30.4 m) wide and 10 feet (3.05 m) deep. The vessels are of steel construction with spe- cial consideration given to operat- ing zone limitations to permit op- eration of the cranes without ex- posing operating personnel to "Pinch Points." Both vessels have some hull machinery and minor generating capacity, with neces- sary support systems. Testing will be required and must be performed in the Ohio River or somewhere with similar operating conditions. The bid package became available on Feb. 25, 1994 and bid opening is planned for May. Interested parties may contact: Commander and District En- gineer, U.S. Army Corps of Engi- neers, Philadelphia District,
Wanamaker Building, 100 Penn
Square East, Philadelphia, Pa. 19107-3391. Attention: CENAP-CT (TOTH). Ref.: DACW61-94-B-0020.
