As winter approaches, excitement grows in the cruise world as the launch of several brand new state-of-the-art liners draws near.
NCL Cruises recently announced that its newest ship, Norwegian Gem had begun her sea trials. The vessel, complete with bowling alley recently left its dry dock in
Germany and is due to arrive in the UK on October 5th for a series of celebratory events.
Meanwhile, work on Cunard Cruises' latest addition to the regal fleet, Queen Victoria, is almost finished and the illustrious vessel begins her maiden voyage on December 11th, following her official naming by The Duchess of Cornwall on December 10th.
However, making the biggest splash in the new cruise year will be the P&O cruise ship Ventura.
Ventura will be the largest cruise ship to be docked in the UK and is due to commence her maiden voyage in April 2008 from Southampton.
