OCEANA

IMO  9169550

July 2020 -P&O Cruises announced that the OCEANA has been sold and will leave the fleet. It makes the 2000-built 2,016-guest ship the first "modern" cruise ship sold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A buyer or a sales price was not named. The ship originally launched as the Ocean Princess, making it the eighth new Princess ship in 10 years. The vessel was then moved under the P&O Cruises brand. At the time, the strategy was to reduce the premium-market capacity of Princess Cruises. The ship was converted to P&O service at Grand Bahama. Later, a dual naming ceremony was held for both the Oceana and Adonia in May 2003. A major 2012 drydock over 11 days saw significant upgrades.
