The Magellan is to be sold today. I hope someone does buy her for cruising because otherwise she will join her younger and bigger sisters in Aliaga. Maybe she could join her sister in Bahamas? Who knows? We just have to wait. This leaves the Marco Polo left to be sold 22nd October 2020.

Costa Cruises' Costa Diadema had to have her cruise voyages cancelled due to seven people being tested positive for the coronavirus. Here is the article link:

Why would they waste money on transfer costs, registration costs, paint, branding and signage on moving Pacific Explorer to Princess and have her be idle under a Princess name? Or why not just send her back to HAL? At least she is already painted dark blue and they have promotional material of her.

I remind you that the Pacific Explorer is the former Dawn Princess of Princess Cruises. She still has her white hull from her Princess Cruises days. The Pacific Aria was the one that has the black hull as she was HAL's Ryandam.

The Carnival Corporation has sold P&O Australia's Pacific Aria (ex Ryndam) to Greek shipowner Marios Iliopoulos, best known for his ferry company Seajets.

Carnival has confirmed the sale. This leaves the Pacific Explorer as the remaining P&O Cruises Australia vessel in the fleet since the transfer of the Golden Princess/Pacific Adventure has been delayed to the pandemic. Here is the link to the article.

Honestly, I think it's best if Carnival dissolves P&O Cruises Australia, cancel the transfers of the Golden Princess and Star Princess, and transfer the Pacific Explorer back to Princess Cruises. After all, having a cruise line only operate only one vessel during the pandemic is bound to fail.

There's some news. Apparently, the Columbus has been sold to a Turkish company for around 7 million. The new owner has not been named, but people suspect it's Miray International, since they also bought Fred Olsen's Black Watch and Boudicca.

However, the 'anonymous' turkish owner said that they would not operate the vessel, which means they're going to either resell it or scrap it. If they do scrap the vessel, it would be disappointing as she is the last vessel to sail for Sitmar Cruises (albeit briefly) that's still around. Here is the link to the article: https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23685-columbus-sold-ship-to-stay-in-limbo-status.html

Also, the Astor is to be sold today.

Marella Dream is still for sale. So far, no one has bought her. Maybe we can get Phoenix Reisen to buy her as they have retired the second Albatros.

Two pieces of news today. The Pacific Dawn of P&O Cruises Australia has been sold to become a hotel ship off the coast of Panama named the Satoshi. That is nice to know that she will be saved, especially as the planned transfer to CMV was cancelled due to CMV going bankrupt. Here is a link:

In other news, Jalesh Cruises, the operators of former P&O Cruises Australia vessel Pacific Jewel which is now known as Karnika, have suspended operations due to the pandemic. While it's worrisome as they did buy the vessel a year ago, I hope they can survive the pandemic. Here is a link for that as well:
