A twin to Le Soleal is planned for 2015 delivery
A contract with Compagnie du Ponant has been signed to build a twin to the recently introduced Le Soleal. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2015 with the order goes to the Ancona shipyard.

'This new order marks a firm consolidation of our relationship with this prestigious cruise operator and allows us to secure a strong foothold globally in a very promising business segment,' said Fincantieri ceo Giuseppe Bono.

The ship is fourth in a 142m series that began with Le Boreál in May 2010 and L'Austral in April 2011. Le Soléal was handed over in June this year.
