P&O Australia Back To Hand-Me-Downs – Search For New Liverpool Cruise Terminal – New 42-Day Caribbean Cargo-Passenger Service

The Cruise Examiner for 19th December 2016


The Fairstar was the first of the hand-me-downs to join P&O Cruises Australia

Last week it was announced that P&O Cruises Australia’s first newbuilding would instead be allocated to Carnival Cruise Line, from whence had sprung the original design for this ship. Instead, P&O Australia will get the Carnival Splendor, which will be eleven years old when she is delivered to Australia. Meanwhile, Liverpool is looking to build a new cruise terminal further down the Mersey from the preent Pier Head facility. And in the cargo-passenger world, CMA CGM is moving its four 12-passenger French West Indies Line ships to a new 42-day round trip Europe-Caribbean cargo-passenger service from the new London Gateway Terminal on the Thames.
