P&O Cruises Australia announced today that Pacific Sun will leave the fleet at the end of its July 1, 2012 cruise, on July 8. The buyer was not disclosed.
The ship is probably best known to North American readers as Carnival Cruise Lines' Jubilee, which was transferred to Carnival's Australian brand in 2004. In making the announcement in Australia today, Carnival Australia CEO Ann Sherry called the ship "the core to rebuilding cruising in Australia."
In a very effective method Sherry regularly employs, she made the announcement to consumers via You Tube, as seen below.
The complete story will appear in today's edition of Cruise News Daily.
