Ulstein CX104

The Ulstein Group design for the Type CX104 X-bow expedition cruise ship

Last week came an announcement from Ulstein Group in Norway that it had signed a letter of intent to build one or more new X-Bow design expedition cruise vessels for an unidentified owner. These vessels follow closely on the framework agreement signed in March for up to ten slightly smaller X-Bow ships for SunStone ships of Miami. Also unidentified for now is a German owner who is negotiating for two new 820-foot 1,200-berth cruise ships to be built by the Brodosplit shipyard in Croatia. Finally, we have a look this week at the recent Porto & Douro Cruise Forum.
