SUMMER FLOWER appeared on AIS now and has a few 100 miles to arrival Alang

The mystery of the SUMMER FLOWER .. she left the Suez anchorage we presume to follow her sister Summer Meadow to the graveyard in Alang. Her last report was on 02 Jan heading South at a similar speed to her sister of 15kts. A rough calculation shows its 3200 miles divided by 15kts equals 9 days. So that puts her 6 days behind schedule ? Maybe the old girl has broken down in the Red Sea ?

If anyone is lucky enough to have access to satellite AIS I would appreciate a current position MTIA

Classic reefer SUMMER MEADOW arrived Alang AM 09 Jan. No doubt I will be posting a similar report for the SUMMER FLOWER which is a few days behind

9  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / IS IT LAST ORDERS FOR TWO OF UK'S BEST-KNOWN CRUISE OPERATORS? on: January 03, 2017, 12:49:28 pm
IS IT LAST ORDERS FOR TWO OF UK'S BEST-KNOWN CRUISE OPERATORS?

The first New Year voyages of two of Britain’s best-known cruise lines have been cancelled at short notice “due to operational reasons.”

A one-line message on the website of Voyages of Discovery announces with regret that Voyager’s “Riches of the Orient cruise due to start in Malaysia on 4th January 2017 has been cancelled. Voyages of Discovery apologises to all of its passengers who were due to sail on this cruise.”
An almost identical message on the Swan Hellenic website announces the cancellation of Minerva’s “Gateway to the Atlantic Isles” cruise scheduled to leave Marseille on January 3.

Unconfirmed reports say that potential buyers inspected the 540-passenger Voyager during a recent dry-dock at the Keppel yard in Singapore. Representatives of Sea Chefs, the company that operates the vessel’s hotel services, are said to be flying from Germany to address crewmembers on Monday.

According to the Voyages’ website, the 15-day cruise from Port Kelang in Malaysia was sold out. Scheduled ports of call were Muara, Brunei; Sihanoukville, Cambodia; Bangkok, Thailand; and Kuantan, Malaysia. The cruise should have ended after an overnight stay in Singapore on January 17/18.
Guest speakers booked for the voyage were Professor Marie Conte-Helm, a specialist in Asian art; Professor Brian Ford, described as “the world’s leading expert on obtaining images with early microscopes”; and Sir James Hodge, a retired diplomat and former British ambassador to Thailand and Laos.

Minerva’s 15-day cruise, with fares from £3,145 per person, should have been visiting Sete, France; Cartagena, Motril and Cadiz, Spain; Gibraltar; Portimao, Portugal; Funchal, Madeira; and Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
Speakers were retired diplomat Robin Kealy, art historian Sarah Searight, and the Very Rev Victor Stock, Priest Vicar at Westminster Abbey and a former Dean of Guildford.
Voyages of Discovery and Swan Hellenic are owned by the All Leisure Group, based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire. Its other brands include Hebridean Island Cruises, Travelsphere and Just You. Hebridean Princess’s first cruise of 2017 is scheduled for March 1.
Company executives have yet to reply to requests for further information

Uneasy feeling about two classic reefers .. SUMMER FLOWER and SUMMER MEADOW. Both have come away from their usual trading patterns. MEADOW is anchored at Port Said after discharge in Mersin, while FLOWER is at anchor off Kalamata and looks to be de storing after a few Las Palmas Southampton Rotterdam runs
To me this all adds up to them both going to Alang .. I may be wrong !!

From my research I think they are all gone with one exception

Oh well theres hope ... but I doubt it !
She had New Zealand as her destination but was obviously heading for NW India .. I wonder if they do that from other yards snooping in and offering more $$$s for the ship ?
