In the case of NCL and Royal Caribbean’s ships, on order at Meyer Werft, they will have almost 8% less space per passenger, and in the case of the Princess ships, being built at Fincantieri, a full 16.5% less than the Diamond Princess. Elsewhere, we look at the major cruise line battle developing Down Under and some comments on the cost of cruise lines doing business in Greece.
