4 minutes read • July 3rd, 2018

Carnival Corporation & plc

P&O Cruises confirmed that its experienced representative, MV Oriana that was built in 1995, would continue to operate sailings under the company’s flag until August of the next year. Her new owners are not yet known.

Unlike Oriana, HAL’s MS Prinsendam already knows the fleet she’s expected to join in summer 2019. The 1988 year built ship will sail under the flag of Phoenix Reisen.

By the way, we already mentioned that these two liners were likely to move to other companies when we discussed whether Carnival Corporation & plc was really going to sell about 15 ships. It’s interesting that the first three ships in our list are already sold (MV Oriana, Costa neoClassica (she was sold to Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line), and MS Prinsendam). However sad, it seems our assumptions turned out to be true.
You can check the full list of Carnival Corporation & plc cruise ships that may leave their companies soon via this link.

It’s sad news, for sure. We believe that many cruise lovers from all over the world have beautiful memories of sailing on these vessels. Nevertheless, they will continue to operate cruises for their big cruise families for another year, so you still have an opportunity to enjoy voyages on Oriana and Prinsendam.
