Default Diamond Princess Fire

I understand that they are cutting out all the burned and unusable steel... but most importantly, Sapphire princess will miracurously become Diamond princess, and the burned skeleton of Diamond will become Sapphire Princess after some rebuilding.

As for carpets and furnishings, these items are not even onboard until the last two-three months of the building process...even though the ship is floating. As soon as the ship is 'safe to float' it is taken out of the high priced real estate of the drydock, where another hull can begin assembly the next day!

All these financial losses are covered by insurance of the yard, as the ship does not legally belong to the cruise line until it is completed and fully commissioned!
