Carnival Corp. has sold a second ship, with the Oceana set to depart the P&O Cruises fleet. 

“Sadly, we announce that Oceana will leave the P&O Cruises fleet this month,” the British cruise line said in a statement. “Whilst we will all miss Oceana, her departure will allow us to focus on our remaining ships and the delivery of Iona later this year, followed by Iona’s sister ship, scheduled for 2022.”

P&O did not say where the ship was going. 

Carnival Corp. said in June that it was accelerating plans already in place to shed ships, starting with six vessels within 90 days. The first was Costa Cruises’ Costa Victoria

The Oceana entered service in February 2000 for Princess Cruises as the Ocean Princess. Both lines at the time operated under the P&O Princess Cruises brand. The ship moved to P&O in 2002 and was renamed.  In 2003, P&O Princess Cruises merged with Carnival Corp.
