Makes sense. I expected the Sun and the Sea to go with the new builds coming out. Surprised that the Ruby is going rather than another Grand class.

2019 - 1 New Royal
2020 - 1 "Upgraded" Royal
2021 - 1 "Upgraded" Royal
2023+ - 1 "Upgraded' Royal (According the Captain on the last cruise)

So do they still consider the Emerald based in Australia?

Golden to P&O in 2020, Sun to China in 2019, Ruby based in Australia in 2020, Emerald already there, Sea will probably go to P&O or be sold...

Look's like we are facing an invasion of the Royal class...

No, Emerald is not considered an Australian based ship, she just cruises the Asia/Pacific Region.
