  2. An article in Cruise Industry News today lists/includes the four ships sold in Fiscal Year 2019 as part of "the eighteen" and does not yet lists the Sun Princess. With the latter added, that would make seventeen so one more to go!

  3. Here's the list I'm seeing of the cruise ships Carnival has sold so far. This accounts for 17 of the total 18 ships that Carnival has said they were going to sell. The sale of the two Princess ships was confirmed yesterday. Costa Atlantica Costa Mediterranea Costa Victoria Costa neoRomantica Amsterdam Rotterdam Maasdam Veendam Oceana Carnival Fantasy Carnival Inspiration Carnival Imagination Carnival Fascination Pacific Dawn Pacific Aria Sun Princess Sea Princess
  4. Ships get listed on those "for sale" web sites, sometimes for a very long time, before anything happens. I think I understand how much Black Watch and Boudicca mean to you good people. Prinsendam, Statendam, Maasdam, Veendam, and Ryndam have meant the same to many of us HAL Mariners. It's almost like loosing a member of one's family. So sad.

  6. The question I get asked a lot is if there is a jail onboard the Dam ships. A jail on a ship is known as a brig, not to be confused with a sailing vessel with two square-rigged masts. Both the former "S" (Statendam, Maasdam, Ryndam and Veendam) and the (partially) still current "R" class (Rotterdam, Zaandam, Volendam and Amsterdam) came out with a brig located on A-Deck forward adjacent the paint store. It is/was a one-person brig with a bed, that's it. The Vista-class and up did not have a brig and the ones on the "S" an "R"-class ships have been used for storage. As far as I know, the eight brigs were never used in that capacity. I sure never put anyone in there

  9. I have them as part of the (now) 18. Missing 2. Anyone know or see online who they are? Aida / Princess / P&O / 5 & 6th Carnival Fantasy class (Ecstasy 1991 / Sensation 1993)?

  10. So far, Carnival Corporation has sold the Costa Mediterranea, Costa Atlantica, Costa Victoria, Costa neoRomantica, Oceana, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Maasdam, Veendam, Carnival Fantasy, Carnival Inspiration and the Carnival Imagination. The Carnival Fascination has, officially, also been removed from Carnival's fleet as she has been placed into cold lay-up in Cadiz with no return date set. Another ship leaving the fleet could be Princess Cruises' Sun Princess, who fits the background description given today by Peaceboat, who announced the charter of a new ship, in 2021.
  11. Amsterdam slipped off during the night and is now at Firth of Forth Anchorage in Great Britain. Since all four of the recently sold ships are now in the hands of the new owners, I suppose it is a good time to stop tracking their movements. I hope all four have productive stays with the new owners. Amsterdam was the last of the fleet that I cruised on to complete the fleet. I had a very nice Alaska Cruise last year. Rotterdam I did the Voyage of the Vikings which was fabulous. Maasdam was the second ship I cruised on and had many more along with several on Veendam.

  13. The score card: The ten confirmed as sold: 1. Carnival Fantasy - sold for scrap and being broken up at Aliaga, Turkey 2. Carnival Inspiration - sold for scrap and being broken up at Aliaga, Turkey 3. Carnival Imagination - sold for scrap and arrived at Aliaga, Turkey on 14 Sep 4. Costa Victoria - sold to Genova Trasporti Marittimi for future scrapping 5. Costa neoRomantica - sold to Celestyal Cruises as Celestyal Experience 6. HAL Rotterdam sold to Fred Olsen as Borealis 7. HAL Amsterdam sold to Fred Olsen as Bolette 8. HAL Maasdam sold to Seajets as Aegean Myth 9. HAL Veendam sold to Seajets as Aegean Majesty 10. P&O Oceana sold to Seajets as Queen of the Oceans Long term layup/defacto decommissioned: 11. Carnival Fascination - moved to long term layup in Cadiz, Spain; no timeline for return to service So, if you count Carnival Fascination, that leaves another seven unnamed ships to be disposed of to make eighteen - I'm not counting internal transfers within the Carnival Group, i.e. Golden Princess and Star Princess to P&O Australia
  14. Only 3 unnamed ships to be sold (From the CC news article https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5594/ ) So far, ships that have been sold for scrap include several of Carnival Cruise Line's oldest ships -- its Fantasy-class, including Fantasy, Fascination, Imagination and Inspiration, along with Costa Victoria. (Cruise Critic is keeping a running tally.) The company also sold four Holland America ships (Maasdam, Veendam, Amsterdam and Rotterdam), three Costa ships (Costa Atlantica, Costa Mediterranea and Costa neoRomantica); two P&O Australia ships (Pacific Aria and Pacific Dawn) and P&O's Oceana. That leaves three, yet unnamed ships that will leave the Carnival Corporation fleet.
  15. I meant to add this to this thread, so pardon my repetition: For those who, like me, need a score card this is a quick list (prone to error) that I compiled of Carnival Corporation ships built in the 90s. Taking at face value their statement to improve efficiency and maintenance costs I assume the older ships are the criteria. One point, points guy says Fascination was sold, others say not. I assume he is right. AidaCara, Carnival: Triumph, Elation, Paradis, Destiny, Sensation, Ecstasy, HAL: Volendam, Princess: Grand Princess, Sun Princes, Sea Princess and Pacific Princess. (information from Wikipedia) According to the Points Guy already sold are Maasdam, Veendam, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Fantasy, Imagination, Inspiration, Fascination, Oceana and Victoria

  17. “In total, the 18 ships represent approximately 12 percent of pre-pause capacity and only three percent of operating income in 2019,” Carnival Corporation stated. “The sale of less efficient ships will result in future operating expense efficiencies of approximately two percent per available lower berth day (“ALBD”) and a reduction in fuel consumption of approximately one percent per ALBD,” Carnival said. So far, Carnival Corporation has sold the Costa Mediterranea, Costa Atlantica, Costa Victoria, Costa neoRomantica, Oceana, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Maasdam, Veendam, Carnival Fantasy, Carnival Inspiration and the Carnival Imagination. The Carnival Fascination has, officially, also been removed from Carnival's fleet as she has been placed into cold lay-up in Cadiz with no return date set.

  19. Definitely Maasdam. I zoomed in in your photos (very ethereal - beautiful pics!) and the funnel is definitely an S-class ship. Since there were only two S-class ships left in the fleet in 2019, and Veendam was in Europe and Maasdam in Alaska, it could only be Maasdam.

  21. Personally I liked Ryndam the best. Loved Veendam until they added the bump on the stern. (I never thought that was well done), but all the S Class ship were really nice.
  22. Veendam had the better Crow's Nest. The rear pool was removed to add more verandah rooms however.
  23. We sailed on all the Statendam class ships except the Statendam. They were classic ships and if you asked me which of the Veendam, Ryndam and Maasdam was the best and favorite of mine, it was a 3 way tie. Right now I'd have to say that the Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam are our favorites.
