P&O Iona

Well, I was wrong – the new ship will not be called Olympia. As everyone knows by now, her name will be Iona. That’s a nice name, and it trips off the tongue, but of course there’s no echo of P&O heritage there at all. But never mind. P&O have issued a fly-around animation of […]

It’s no secret that P&O are getting a new ship in 2020. She’ll be enormous – bigger than Britannia – but that’s the way things are going. I did a couple of posts some while ago with the first news about the new ship. First, there was this post with the details that had been […]

I’ve been comparing them with the plans of Royal Princess, and below is a summary of the differences and similarities.
