According to a web advert the Piano Lane (new Chinese name for the ex Oriana) they are advertising for staff namely Staff chief engineer, 2nd engineer, ER storekeeper, senior IT operator, Health and safety officer, HR person and various cooks etc It is the first time I have everseen an advert for a staff chief as this can regarded as a plum job.The PL will be based in Xiamen SE China. Unusual name for a ship.

The new name as I understand is Piano Land - It appears to be a deliberate corruption of 'P and O Land' but the official reason is something to do with its new home port being associated with music.

PS. Just looked and the top job was advertised last August - now filled, unsurprisingly.
