Ingalls to Build Luxury Cruise Ship


Ingalls Shipbuilding (USA), and American Classic Voyages Co., Chicago, signed a contract for the construction of the first major cruise ships to be built in the United States in more than 40 years. Under the terms of the "Project America" contract, which has a potential value of $1.4 billion for three ships, Ingalls will initially build two 1,900 passenger cruise ships, with an option for a third vessel. As many as six ships could ultimately be built in the Project America program.
Ingalls will perform the contract in a taming agreement with Kvaerner Masa Shipyards of Turku, Finland, one of the world’s most experienced and successful designers and builders of large, modern cruise ships. The European company will, under a fixed-price contract to Ingalls, provide design and planning expertise, and will advise Ingalls on commercial manufacturing techniques.
Ingalls expects to begin construction of the first ship in 2000. The ships plan to cruise within the Hawaiian Islands. The design of the state-of-the-art luxury cruise ships, each approximately 72,000 gross tons and 840 feet long, embraces all the amenities of modern cruise ship luxury.
Each vessel will feature a four-deck-high atrium, a 1,060-seat dining room, an 840-seat theater, a 590-seat cabaret lounge, and a uniquely Hawaiian outdoor performance stage. Accommodations for 1,900 passengers include 950 cabins. The ships will have 85,850 square feet of open deck space, extensive health spa and gymnasium facilities, and 2,100 square feet of conference
space. In addition, the upper three decks of the ships are designed to maximize the sense of spaciousness on board, and provide passengers with panoramic views.
