Whoa, that's awesome! Have you heard or seen anything about the names of the Leonardo ships? 

 

normally, the name of the class of ship is the name of the 1st ship.

ie: dawn class = dawn

jewel class = jewel

breakaway class = breakaway

thus Leonardo class = Leonardo, followed by Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, and April.  :)

To be accurate, this is not the Leonardo Class. It is only Project Leonardo.

 

Similar example can be found in Royal Caribbean.

Their Quantum Class were originally known as Project Sunshine.

But the first ship was not named as Sunshine of the Seas.

 

Hence the "project name" and the "name of the class" can be different.

Breakaway Class was still Project Breakaway.

And Norwegian Epic was originally known as F3 Project (but surely it can't be named as Norwegian F3).

The Norwegian Escape was known as Project Seahawk before being officially named as Norwegian Escape.

I believe the Star was actually built first, but because it wasn't originally supposed to be built for NCL they didn't name the class after it

Seems like they would probably all have good Italian restaurants.  Maybe even have some good turtle soup.

A bit low res but this block of steel under the yellow gantry crane should be Leonardo 1, pic taken/posted in June.

Hm on a 2nd thought, I am not sure if this is Leonardo. The ship in the background appears to be a Ponant ship, Tulcea shipyard delivered one in 2019. This might be a Virgin megablock perhaps?

 

The build in the foreground/background of this recently delivered ship, is that Leonardo?
