Former Carnival ship, the Jubilee, has a new home at HNA Tourism Cruise & Yacht Management in China. The first itineraries are said to be Sanya or Tianjin to Ha Long Bay and Da Nang.

Interestingly enough, she will be managed and operated by Star Cruises (NCL’s parent line).

China and the Pacific may well be on its way to being the next cruising hot-spot. This is evident by Carnival sending the Carnival Spirit to Australia and Royal Caribbean testing the waters with Celebrity Solstice and the largest ship to sail Asia, the Voyager of the Seas.
