When Queen Elizabeth II christens P&O Cruises’ Italian-built Britannia next week, she will become the second P&O ship to be named by Her Majesty, joining the German-built Oriana, which she named in 1995. Between 1947 and 2010, the Queen has also named four ships of the sister Cunard Line. Over in New Orleans, meanwhile, US cruise circles are abuzz with Viking River Cruises’ plans to introduce half a dozen new 300-passenger vessels, or 1,800 more berths, to the Mississippi River between 2017 and 2019.
