    German cruise ship builder Meyer Werft has signed a contract for the construction of a new cruise ship marking the first newbuilding order in the sector since the start COVID-19 pandemic.

    was awarded by Japan-based NYK Group for a relatively small 229-meter-long ship, powered by LNG, that will come in at 51,950 gross tonnes. In a normal year, the newbuild order would be less than significant, however this year is anything but normal. According to Meyer Werft, the order marks the first newbuild order for the cruise ship industry since the pandemic put a pause to cruise shipping worldwide.

    Meyer Werft operates the world’s largest covered cruise ship building dock in Papenburg, Germany.
