Both Cunard Line and P&O Cruises announced their 2015 world cruises this week, to go on sale next Thursday. All three of Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria will offer such itineraries in 2015, as will P&O’s Arcadia and Aurora. In Canada, meanwhile, engineers have succeeded in reviving a 106-year old quadruple-expansion steam engine of the Clyde-built s.s. Keewatin, which is due to turn again for the first time this Thursday (vessel shown above in Port McNicoll about 1912). Meanwhile, pod failures have meant the cancellation of the rest of Celebrity Millenium’s 2013 Alaska season.
