Virgin Cruise Lines?

Rumors are circulating that Richard Branson is in discussions with Dubai investors to start a new cruise line. To be branded Virgin Cruise Lines, the operation is to be based in Florida and expected to operate in the Caribbean.

Branson held earlier discussions with Royal Caribbean about joining forces and re-branding some of their existing ships. That deal seems to have fallen through.

The word on the street is that Branson is seeking 1.7 billion dollar investment to construct two, new mega ships for the United States market. The plans are reportedly in the early stages with the new ships expected to be in operation in 2019.

More to come.
