I did some posts in the summer about a criminal prosecution that the captain of Azura faced. The essence of the issue was that on 29 March Azura was found to contain fuel with a level of sulphur content (1.68%) that was higher than permitted level of sulphur content (1.5%). A further hearing has been […]

Well, this is interesting. There’s a report to the effect that Carnival has ordered two new ships to an enhanced ‘Carnival Vista’ design for delivery in the early 2020s onwards. There’s also an option for a further four ships. The new ships will serve the Chinese market and the design will be tailored accordingly. What’s interesting […]

As a result fathom was not accepting bookings from would-be passengers for their Cuba cruises if they were Cuban born, even those who were US citizens. There […]

No new ship for P&O….

I’ve done some posts in recent months covering Carnival Corp’s plans for new builds. They have seven ships currently under construction (although it might be six now that Koningsdam has been delivered). There’s a definite order for four from Meyer, two to be built in Germany and two in Finland – as I outlined here, […]

I did a post in early December commenting on the rumours that there was to be a new ship for P&O, and I suggested that while this wasn’t impossible, it wouldn’t happen before 2019. Since then Carnival Corporation have released some further details about the orders they made with Fincantieri in March this year (2015). […]

There’s been some speculation on the P&O Facebook group that P&O are to get another new ship. This is based on something told to a passenger at dinner by an officer; always a solid source of hard factual information! The story is that it will be at least as big as Britannia, possibly bigger. Well, […]
