We all know that P&O Cruises will be getting a brand new class ship thanks to an order by the Carnival Corporation. Even though we have already seen similar renderings of the ship for other sister cruise lines we have not yet seen the full rendering of the P&O ship.
It is still early days for much of the details but thanks to a new video on YouTube we can see what the future P&O vessel will look like. This is the first time we get to see the vessel with all the P&O touches. There was an earlier rendering as seen above which was officially released but it only shows part of the vessel.
Watch Future P&O Cruise Ship:
We do hope we’ll get to see a nice shiny rendering soon! The yet to be named vessel will be 180,000 gross tons and carry 5,200 guests. It will be the largest ship ever built for the British cruise line and to sail for the UK market. Construction will begin at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany in 2017. Bookings will open in autumn 2018 and we can expect high demand for one of the largest ships in the world.
As you can see in the video above a large dome is located at the center. The area is called “The Dome”, an area which will be a hive of activity no matter what the weather conditions are. With a stunning glass roof, the space will feature a pool, retractable stage, whirlpool and more.
The new class ship will be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). The environmentally friendly technology will help reduce exhaust emissions. Other identical ships for Aida Cruises, Costa Cruises, Princess Cruises, P&O Australia and Carnival Cruise Line will also be powered by LNG.
