Stephen Mulhern was assisted by a local lady, Jane from the island of Iona, where on the beach she picked from a handfull of people who suggested the name Iona. Iona will be the new ship to join P&O in May 2020, and one of the first if not the first of the Excellence class of ships. This new class of upcoming cruise ships have been ordered by Carnival Corporation and will enter service for several Carnival brands in the late 2018s and early 2020s. P&O we know have two, the first is the Iona and news is eagerly awaited as to her Maiden Voyage which we predict will be in the Mediterranean. There may be a new name competition for the second of the new 5,200 guests ships, as there is a second on order. Now we all know that the winner will have to end in the letter A. All P&O ships do, and traditions are very rarely broken when it comes to ships. Like the coin laying ceremony.
The new ship, we are told will have a Limelight club, because that has been such a huge successful addition to the entertainment areas. But, we have a ship video already – how? Impossible? NO – not in this modern world. Take a look.
Meet the fleet with our famous Doris Visits passenger area tours.
But if you know your ship, just choose a destination.
