Default Carnival announces new "Olympia" class

Source:
Carnival Cruise Lines
Tuesday, May 12, 2003

Today Carnival Cruise Lines announced a brand new class of ships inspired by their recent partner brand, Princess Cruises. The new class of ships was reflecting of those ships of the "Sun" class of ships.
"We are greatly excited about this new class of ships, the “Sun” class of ships has been shown to have great interest to the public, and we are excited to create a Carnival class of their own," says Carnival's spokesperson Jennifer de la Cruz.
The new Carnival version of the "Sun" class of ships will be called the "Olympia" class. These more elegant and upscale ships will have upgraded amenities, similar to those on our partner cruise line Princess Cruises.
The first "Olympia" class ship will be the Carnival Olympia, which is currently scheduled to be built by fall of 2005 by Fincantieri shipbuilders. The Carnival Olympia will be the 1 of 3 ships in the “Olympia” class of ships.
Carnival, the worlds leading cruise line currently operates Costa, Cunard, Holland America, Princess, Seabourn, and Windstar Cruises. They have also recently joined companies with Princess P&O Cruises.
For additional information and reservations, please call 1-888- CARNIVAL or any travel agent.

Actaully this is a bogus press release. Carnival has nothing like this planned. I have found this same statement on other sites and they have now removed it due to the fact that this was made up.

I agree with Gordon. This is BOGUS !

Carnival Corporation has actually CANCELLED the construction of one of its ships. This would have been a Vista-class ship for Holland American (uses the same hull as the CCL Spirit-class).
