I never double post but I am doing it today. I read a post by a very reliable travel agent on rec.travel.cruises that Ocean Princess will be transferred to P&O in 2002! She will be revamped to meet British standards and will join Aurora, Arcadia, and Oriana. She will be renamed Oceana.
It's true. There are simply too many ships in the world, and Princess is sending one of its newer ships to parent company P&O. By "customized" it means they will add a British pub and take out the casino -- the British don't gamble like we Americans do.
