The BBC site annouced that P&O (part of Carnival) will add another
ship out of Southampton. It is a very large one.... we love the
ARCADIA (on it agin in 2007) and so maybe need to start planning
Cruise port's new liner announced
P&O's Ventura, which will carry 3,100 passengers with 1,200 officers and crew, is expected to begin running cruises out of the port in 2008.
Though smaller than the recent Queen Mary 2, the owners say the 116,000-tonne ship is the biggest vessel built solely for the UK market.
It will have eight restaurants, five swimming pools and a large theatre.
She is being built in Italy by shipbuilders Fincantieri.
