Default JUBILEE to leave fleet

I saw thise on another board




Here is the story:
Jubilee is headed to Australia
23/6/2003

Carnival Cruise Lines’ Jubilee will transfer to P&O Cruises Australia in Autumn 2004, joining Pacific Sky and more than doubling the P&O brand’s capacity in the region. The news was announced at today’s annual general meeting for Carnival Corp. & plc shareholders in Southampton, the first post-merger gathering for shareholders of dual-listed company.
Built in 1986, the 47,262gt Jubilee carries 1,486 passengers. The Jubilee and Pacific Sky will sail year-round on seven- to 14-day cruises to the South Pacific islands of New Caledonia, Fiji, Vanuata and Tonga as well as to New Zealand and Australia, including a schedule from Brisbane for part of the year, opening up a new market for P&O Cruises Australia. The opportunity of the arrival of the Jubilee will also be taken to extend the seasonal deployment of the Pacific Sky in New Zealand, supporting the further growth of this market, Carnival Corp. & plc said.

These two Australian ‘Fun Ships’ will join the premium-market Pacific Princess, which is also deployed in the Australian market for part of the year. After leaving service for the Carnival brand, Jubilee will undergo a multi-million-dollar refurbishment and transformation into a P&O Cruises Australia vessel.

Carnival Corp. & plc chairman Micky Arison said the transfer of Jubilee to the Australia fleet exemplifies the company’s ability to optimize asset utilization in order to maximize returns for the group. P&O Princess Cruises ceo Peter Ratcliffe called Australia and New Zealand ‘rapidly growing cruise markets’ and said ‘the addition of the Jubilee significantly expands our presence in the region while enabling P&O Cruises Australia to upgrade its product offerings with amenities and facilities desired by today's consumers. Ratcliffe added that P&O Cruises Australia carries approximately 61,000 passengers a year and the addition of the Jubilee is expected to boost annual passenger counts to more than 150,000.
