Is this design a protoype for two new ships for Celestyal Cruises?

This week, from a study that Knud E Hansen did of mid-size cruise ships powered by LNG (above) versus HFO come two illustrations that might be protoypes for Celestyal Cruises, who admitted a couple of months ago that they were investigating newbuildings. Meanwhile, four bidders have made offers to acquire either the shipbuilders STX or cruise ship builders STX France, or the two together. As two of the bidders are Fincantieri and Damen, speculation is that STX France, the former Chantiers de l’Atlantique, may soon acquire new owners. And on the Rhone, Amadeus looks set to pick up to some of the slack Crystal left behind when they cancelled their French river cruise plans.
