New cruise ship to be floated out

Article content

25 February 2010

A ceremony is being held to honour the float out of the first newbuild for cruise ship company Oceania.

The Marina is moving from drydock to floating by itself on Friday at Genoa's Fincantieri's Sestri shipyard, Cruise Critic reports.

According to Cruise Critic, the float out marks the point where a vessel shifts from being a construction project to a sea-bound ship and those in attendance at the event will be taken on a tour of parts of the boat, such as the martini bar, the lobby, the Canyon Ranch Spa, staterooms, the library and some of the restaurants on board.

"It's important to note that the ship, which isn't due to launch until January 2011, won't look anywhere near finished, but it's still fun to see these spaces as they evolve," it continued.

This news comes after Princess Cruises added two further ships to its fleet, with the company hoping they will be brought into service in 2013 and 2014, the Daily Echo reported.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19637180-ADNFCR
