Fincantieri launches the Cruise Olympia for the Grimaldi Group


Cruise Olympia was launched at Castellammare di Stabia shipyard, the last of a series of four innovative cruise ferries ordered by the Grimaldi Group (Naples), Italy’s biggest shipping company and leading European operator within the Motorways of the Sea.
Godmother to the ship, that was launched sliding down the traditional slipway in a spectacular ceremony, was Maria Consuelo Fuduli Grimaldi, sister of Emanuele Grimaldi, Chairman of Minoan Lines.
After delivery, scheduled for next June, Cruise Olympia will join her sistership Cruise Europa,
employed since October by Minoan Lines, the Greek shipping company part of the Grimaldi Group,
on the Ancona/Igoumenitsa/Patras route.
Cruise Olympia, together with Cruise Europa, will be the biggest cruise ferry in the Mediterranean
Sea and will be outfitted following the same high standards found on cruise ships, such as the
interior design of public areas and cabins and the wide range of onboard entertainment, that
includes an à la carte and a self service restaurant, bars, a casino, wellness and fitness areas, a
swimming pool, shops, a conference hall and a party hall, a discotheque, two halls reserved for
drivers, an internet point, a video games corner and a children’s playroom.
225 metres long and 31 metres wide, with a gross tonnage of 54,310 tons and a loading capacity
of 250 cars and 3,000 linear metres of coaches, trucks and campers, Cruise Olympia will
accommodate up to 3,000 passengers in 413 comfortable cabins, 18 of which will be Owner’s
suites and 50 Junior suites, besides 548 reclining seats (114 of which first class). The ship will be
able to operate at a service speed of 28 knots connecting Ancona, Igoumenitsa and Patras in only
22 hours.
