remember that this ship has not even been ordered, yet. Although I am very sure that this letter of intent will result in the signing of a firm contract, the NCL / Aker LOI some months ago was a good example that LOIs are sometimes not followed by firm orders.

By the way, Meyer Werft scored a firm newbuilding contract from AIDA Cruises today for a third 68,500 gt ship to be delivered in Spring, 2008. The future is certainly looking bright for this traditional German yard again, which had been suffering from a low number of orders two years ago only.
Best regards,
