My big question is where would they put the ship? Perhaps homeport it in Europe as they did with Independence Of The Seas? The larger ports in the Mediterranean are more capable of handling these large ships, but of course some modifications would be needed to the pier facilities. It still would not be as big an engineering effort as what had to be done to Labadee, Cozumel, Falmouth, etc.

This story also smacks of Finland making the first overture and not Royal Caribbean, which would bode well for the cruise line since they might get a really good deal in exchange for helping keep thousands of people employed at STX.
