My guess is that they will announce a well-known (?) singer-cum-pianist to 'christen' Iona...

 

Or it could be even less exciting and be an announcement of an artiste to appear at Ionafest...

 

My breath is not bated 😁

I'm so excited I'm going to lie down in a darkened room!

The marketing department are obviously making sure they spend their 2020 budget early.

Who cares? These pre-announcements are just a waste of everybody’s time. When they’ve got something to say they can say it.

No doubt it will be the Ionafest headliner. I think at this stage people will just take that and get on with their lives.

 

If the rumours re Meghan Sussex being the Godmother were true, I wonder if this weeks news has cast doubt on that.

Only if Iona is going to spend half the year in Canada, with no photographers on board!

I hope it is something to get excited about for the maiden cruise because it would show confidence that the maiden will go ahead as scheduled and not be cancelled because she isn’t finished.

As the Sussex royals are not financially independent and cannot afford there royal yacht. P&O have generously made available a suite on Iona for there exclusive use and as they are financially strapped for cash they will gladly except any bottles of Moet from fellow passengers.  There is also no truth in the rumor that the ship will be renamed princess Meghan.

A "singer-cum-pianist" like Sir Elton - now that would live up to the hype! Unlikely though so I'll have a guess at Jamie Cullum.

OMG I wish! Their IT staff should all be sacked. I cannot believe how bad their systems are. Having just experienced my first cruise for a few years with another line, where I had at a glance booking on ONE screen for everything, it seems even worse.

My guess is that Karen Hauer from strictly is going to do something with Chris Ramsey for Ionafest

Someone's been reading my mind! I'd settle for Sir Elton but not fussed about Jamie Cullum (he can't sing) 🤩

That would be quite possible - especially after Saga Cruises have teamed up with Jules Holland.  Not sure Jamie Cullum is really Iona mind you.

That cretin was in First Class when I was cabin crew.  In 11 hours, he didn't acknowledge or even look at us when we asked him what he wanted to drink or eat.  His Manager answered for him.
