Four Seasons Hotels Plans Cruise Ship Launch
In an intriguing entry into the luxury cruise market, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has signed a contract with Finland's Kvaerner Masa-Yards to build a 42,000-ton "residential ship." The M/S Four Seasons would operate under a similar scheme as that of Residensea, the condos-at-sea vessel. Details are still sketchy but the ship would be comprised of 100 "residences," according to a release from Kvaerner Masa-Yards, ranging in size from 125 to 320 square meters.

Construction won't begin until Four Seasons reaches undisclosed sales targets for the vessels (no prices were announced), but the shipyard anticipates it will begin to build M/S Four Seasons sometime before July 2005. The shipbuilding process is estimated to take two years -- so don't look for a launch before summer 2007.
