Last week Croisières de France announced that in 2015 it would be acquiring Celebrity Cruises’ Century (above), to become the largest ship devoted to the French cruise market since the s.s. France was withdrawn in 1974. Croisières de France and Celebrity Cruises are both Royal Caribbean brands. So this week we have a quick look at the French cruise market for any further prospects of growth. Meanwhile, as Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the sale of 22 million new shares, we revisit our comparison of NCLH and Facebook share prices of earlier this year. And MSC Cruises confirms that Fincantieri Palermo will lengthen all four of its MSC Lirica class ships to 902 feet.
