News is out today that the Fincantieri shipyard at Montfalcone is just beginning to cut the steel for wjhat will eventually become the largest ship ever built for the U.K.-based cruise line P & O Cruises. Now it is important to take note that P & O was at one time the parent company for Princess Cruise Line. This was before Carnival Corp acquired P & O in one of the largest acquisitions of a cruise line in history.
What is not being said about the new ship for P & O is that it is most likely an identical floor plan to the new ships currently under construction for sister company Princess Cruise Line; including the new Royal Princess and her sister ship the Regal Princess set to debut in June of 2013 and June of 2014.
