Royal Princess to Leave Princess Fleet

Carnival Corp announced today that Royal Princess will be transferred from their Princess brand to the P&O brand in the spring of 2011. P&O will rename the ship Adonia.

The change will cancel five previously scheduled Princess sailings in April and May 2011.

The change will also have the affect of further reducing berths in Alaska in the summer 2011 season. Royal Princess is operating in Alaska during the summer of 2010, and Princess has no plans to redeploy a replacement ship there in 2011.

Details will appear in today's edition of Cruise News Daily.
