Today, Cruise & Maritime Voyages announced the acquisition of a new flagship, in P&O Australia’s Pacific Pearl, which had catered to many UK passengers in the past and will be based in Tilbury from next summer. The latest acquisition will be named Columbus, which also happens to be the name of one of the bars on the line’s veteran Marco Polo. Last week, Disney Cruise Line announced that it would be building two more cruise ships at Meyer Werft in Papenburg. And Royal Caribbean International’s Anthem of the Seas, the largest cruise ship operating in winter weather from New York, made another itinerary change last week.
