P&O Cruises plans to take delivery of ‘Iona’ before the autumn.
She is currently lying in Bremerhaven, where she has been bunkered with LNG.
In addition, following discussions with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg Germany, her as yet unnamed sistership will be delivered in December, 2022.
P&O Cruises President, Paul Ludlow, said: “Whilst our operations as currently paused, we are delighted that we have more clarity on the arrival of these two new ships.The final outfitting of ‘Iona’ is almost complete and is looking stunning and we will take delivery of her before the autumn. We also now know that her sistership will join the fleet at the end of 2022.
“Both ships are eagerly anticipated by our guests and we are seeing strong demand for the future. The space on these two ships will allow for extraordinary experiences; visual entertainment displays; new dining concepts and many new areas for relaxation and indulgence,” he claimed.
Itineraries for the second ship will go on sale in Spring 2021.
