Default Princess tidbits . . .

Stuff I heard this week on the Grand:

Sea Princess is leaving Princess and joining P&O in 2003. I think this is sad - I really like Sun class ships.

The new Crown Princess to be delivered in 2004 is sister to the Grand/Golden/Star but will have another level of passenger cabins adding another 500 people to the ship. I have no clue how they are going to do this.

Sapphire and Diamond Princess will be different then Grand class ships.

Merger news - nothing will be decided until August??? Supposedly both RCCL and Carnival are trying to figure out of European regulatories would approve either merger. Once they know that - they will go back to stockholders. Capt stayed very neutral on this. He started to say that they wanted to go towards RCCL but when it became obvious that Carnvial stands a chance - he continued to say Princess will be strong regardless of what happens.

No mention of the Renissance ships. I wish he would have mentioned these.

We're booked on the Sea Princes January 4th, 2003, going to the Southern Caribbean. When are they taking Sea Princess out of the Princess line-up?? I really love that class of ship (having been on the Sun through the Panama Canal). Hope the move is later in the year. I was really looking forward to the Sea Princess...

Sea Princess due to leave the fleet in Spring 2003 - I will miss her - been on her twice and so far she is my favorite ship.
