When Ocean Princess leaves Princess Cruises this spring, she’ll be transferred to Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ Oceania Cruises.
According to Carnival’s 2015 annual report, Carnival Corporation sold the 672-guest Ocean Princess for $66-million dollars in late 2014.
How do you finance a cruise ship?
The $66 million dollars is financed through Carnival Corp. with semi-annual payments through November 2019.
When Ocean Princess joins Oceania, she’ll undergo a 35-day $40 million renovation before setting sail as the newly named Sirena on April 27, 2016 from Barcelona.
Sailings on Sirena start at $2949 per person and gives a more upscale cruising experience.
