Astro Ocean Takes Over Piano Land as Ship Sails for China

Piano Land

Astro Ocean has officially taken over the Piano Land, the former 1,822-guest, 1995-built Oriana from P&O Cruises. 

The new Chinese start up signed for the ship on August 12, with the ship leaving the UK on August 16.

All P&O signage has been removed and the ship will get a new livery and new logo in Greece during a technical stop later this month, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The company is a joint venture between CTS (China Travel Services) and COSCO (China Ocean Shipping), with V.Ships as the vessel manager.
