1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Boudicca on the beach on: July 15, 2021, 09:17:50 am
I understand that Boudicca will likely soon be followed onto the scrapyard beaches by her former fleet mate, Albatros.

Well Black Watch yes but Albatros was moved over to a legitimate hotel operation, so I think that for a while she will remain in that role.

I posted my 'news' about Boudicca with out having looked at what other news had been posted...!!! Sorry about that.

I understand that the former Fred. Olsen Cruise Line ship Boudicca has recently been pulled up onto the beach at Aliaga for scrapping.

It seems, from what I am reading now, that despite new investors Ambassador Cruise Line is indeed CMV by another name. The CEO of the company, Christian Verhounig (I hope I have spelled his name correctly) has gathered about him his old CMV team and already there is talk of acquiring further vessels of a similar size the the recently acquired Ambience. Perhaps they will have talks with the man at SeaJets regarding his recently acquired yet laid-up tonnage.

Just to make this clear, Ambassador Cruise Line was not started by the previous owners of CMV. After the company was put into liquidation the former CEO bought the passenger database and booking systems. He then rounded up a new group of investors to start this venture.

I have not heard anything untoward regarding Azamara and their acquisition of Pacific Princess. I would take a guess this is a holding name until the purchase has been completed.

Personally, I think that with those seemingly thoughtful renaming of the ships there is at least an intention of a future of further trading for them. If they had been acquired just in order to turn a fast buck at the breakers yard then why go to the bother of such renaming?

It is Queen of the Oceans and Majesty of the Oceans ...... not 'of the Seas.'

Yes, and painted on properly rather than in a hasty manner, as is usually the case for a ship about to head off to the scrap yard.

Reports are coming in that Satoshi has in fact been sold to a new start-up cruise company. That's all the information that I have at the moment on this. It would be nice to think that she may yet escape the breakers and live on to cruise again.

From what I've heard, this is the end of MSC Lirica. Scrapyard rather than repair yard.

Vasco Da Gama is in Libson, Portugal. See http://forum.shipspotting.com/index.php/topic,17096.0.html for more info. I don't know what Mystic Invest plans to do with her, but they should either bring her back to service or sell her to Seajets so she can rejoin her sister vessels.

Vasco Da Gama is presently in the Lisnave shipyards undergoing refitting work, amongst other things, her cabins are being modernised. A lot of upgrades to the technical aspects of the ship are also being undertaken. Apparently, Mystic Cruises are looking for another ship to operate along with Vasco Da Gama. One thing is for sure, there is plenty of choice out there.

I have just heard that Princess Cruises has sold Pacific Princess, just as we were speculating a day or so ago. However, that is all that I know. No idea who has bought her or any details yet.

Cordelia Cruises hasn't responded to anything about the Majesty of the Seas and she is still laid up in Greece. I suspect that they may be or are selling her for scrap.

It is my understanding that Cordelia Cruises were 'only' acquiring Empress of the Seas. The Indian cruise market is in its infancy so I cannot imagine there would even be the need for them to take on a second vessel, especially at this time - even it is available at a give away price.
