The Supreme Court of India issued a ruling in March granting another 90 day stay in the scrapping of Norway/Blue Lady, which will prevent any action on the ship until 11 June.  The purpose of the stay is for the various technical, maritime, and pollution control boards to report on whether the ship can be dismantled without creating an asbestos hazard.

According to ssMaritime News, there is still hope, although there are few details and neither of 2 reported groups has come forward with a firm plan.  There are reports of private negotiations with the present owners, and as of 30 April, negotiations continue.

Previously I was certain this was the end, but perhaps there is still a chance for another phase of life for this grand ship.

I really don't think so. She's unlikely to get off the beach without breaking her back.

These "groups" really amaze me. Well intentioned, but very little understanding of what's involved.

Cheers
Phil

Hi
I agree with Phil.
Good intentions started to late
she has sufferd damage being beached and the delay is more to do with the safe disposal of toxic material than preservation.

does anyone know what NCL planned to do with her when they bought her?
