Mitsubishi Heavy again delaying Carnival liner delivery

TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Heavy Industries appears unlikely to meet a December delivery deadline on a ship for the world's largest cruise line operator, Carnival, forcing a third postponement that will probably swell losses incurred on the project.

     The vessel is the Japanese shipbuilder's first large cruise liner for Carnival unit AIDA Cruises. Changes in the design and materials had already pushed back delivery from the originally planned March. Now, with changes to interior specifications, delivery may have to wait until fiscal year-end.
