  1. Mini-cruises often do feel crowded. People often share multiple berths.
  2. After the demise of CMV, it has been reported that Marco Polo will probably be scrapped. However her new owners have now put her up for charter. This means that she might be saved, if somebody does actually charters her! Do you think that is likely?
  3. Hi, so the Marco Polo's auction ended a few weeks ago. So who purchased her? Does anyone know?
  4. P&O Cruises Australia has announced the Pacific Aria has officially been sold, and will leave the fleet immediately, as opposed to her scheduled departure in early next year. The ship was due to go to the British cruise brand ‘Cruise & Maritime Voyages’, in May 2021 to be renamed Ida Pfeiffer, in honour of the famous Austrian explorer. However following CMV’s collapse, Carnival Corporation has found a new buyer, the Greek ferry operator, Seajets, for the 1994 built, 55,819 gross tonne ship. Seajets also purchased P&O’s Oceana, earlier in the year.

  6. Mystic Cruises have confirmed that they bought the former 1993-built Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) ship at auction. The Vasco da Gama will serve the British and German markets under Mystic Cruises ownership. Mystic did not elaborate on what brand the ship would operate under. It's possible the ship will sail under the Nicko Cruises banner, which would help expand Nicko’s footprint and the ship already has a presence in the German-speaking market, having sailed under the Transocean banner for CMV. Built for Holland America Line in 1993 as Statendam, she was trans
  7. This is what Albatros's interiors look like. Not so unlike Olsen's, in places: Regards
  8. Did you know that Fred. Olsen's Black Watch and Boudicca had a sister? The Albatros will leave the Phoenix Reisen (German) fleet. The ship will now start a new life as a hotel vessel. Built in 1973, the 28, 518gt, 830 guest Albatros was originally launched as the Royal Viking Sea. She has had eight owners (including NCL and Star) and six names, in her 47 year career. Albatros was one of three sisters: Star (1971), Sky (1973) and Sea (1973). As for her two sisters: Star is best know today as Fred.
  9. P&O and Cunard cruise ships have been seen of various UK coastal location, over the past few months. These are often places that you do NOT normally see cruise ship!
  10. There is some speculation that new cruise start-up have purchased a HAL ship. See the slide-show below: What do you think? Which HAL ship?
  11. It could be like ordering a Chinese: I'll have a S2149, a S2436 and a portion of S3345!😀
  12. Looks like 'Majesty' is for sale. See: https://wp.me/pfRKD-8Ab
