As the original observer has commented, “Sad day if true…”. However, response has suggested that this may just be a ‘trawl’ – the brokers put up a page for a ship which they think might be available put a suggested price tag on it, and if they get what looks like a good bite from a possible customer, they’ll approach the ac tuasl ship owner and try to complete a deal (with themselves as middlemen, of course). So it’s probably nothing at all….. and the images are old – they don’t have the new livery.
Nonetheless, given all the hoopla over Britannia, and the existence of Azura and Ventura in the fleet, some of the older ships, e.g. Oriana and Aurora, look a little out of place. Of course, many P&O customers love them, in fact more so than the newer, larger ships.
It’s also the case that Oriana was built by P&O before the Carnival takeover. It might be therefore be the case that the ownership of Oriana is more straightforward than that of later ships.
Hopefully this is just a speculative trawl, however.
Update: P&O have confirmed that Oriana is definitely not for sale.
