Carnival Imagination is close to Aliaga. She should land by tomorrow. Fatih Takmaklı will record her beaching.

Let's hope Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line buys the Magellan (ex. Holiday) on October 19.

Carnival is going to sell 3 more vessels. The total vessels that carnival will sell is now 18. I suspect the vessels they're now going to sell are the Fantasy class and if that's true, the older Tropicale, Holiday, and Celebration will outlive the Fantasy class vessels.

It would appear she's already on the beach.  If we play "count the funnels" in this very recent video, it looks like she is alongside on the far side of the Fantasy and still running at the time of the video.

Carnival has confirmed that the Carnival Imagination has been sold for scrap. They also confirmed that the Carnival Fascination will also be sold for scrap in Aliaga. They claimed that they will keep the remaining Fantasy-class vessels for service, but I doubt that due to carnival constantly increasing the number of vessels to be sold from 6 to 13 to 15 to 18! I bet that they will sell the remaining Fantasy-class vessels to Aliaga as they always seem to get rid of the older vessels.

I understand that the two Princess Cruises ships, Sun Princess and Sea Princess have been sold. Sun Princess is to become the 'new' Peace Boat ship and they will operate just her. There is no indication to whom Sea Princess has been sold.

I'm surprised that Peace Boat is chartering the Sun Princess, but it does make sense. The organization has chartered the Ocean Dream (ex. Tropicale) from Royal Caribbean's Pullmantur Cruises for 8 years. Earlier this year, they returned her to Pullmantur in exchange for chartering Pullmantur Zenith, but since Pullmantur shut down, the charter is now void so Peace Boat has to return the Zenith to Royal Caribbean. It's obvious that they need a new vessel immediately so that's why they chartered the Sun Princess.

As for Sea Princess, It's still unknown who bought her so we have to wait and see. I suspect the buyer is Seajets because they had also bought her sister ship Oceana and renamed her Queen of the Oceans. Now that none of Sun-class will be sailing for Princess Cruises anymore, this will make the Grand-class the oldest vessels in the Princess Cruises fleet.

My informant tells me that Peace Boat has bought Sun Princess. Princess Cruises has informed passengers booked on both Sun Princess and Sea Princess that the ships have been sold.
Peace Boat had bought Zenith last year - not chartered her. She is presently at Lavrion, so not very far from Aliaga. If Peace Boat sells her it will be at a considerable loss. However, they have little choice as they do not want to operate more than one ship.

I'm late, but here's a video of Imagination's arrival to Aliaga. They removed most of the bow and the top decks of Fantasy. The Inspiration still looks intact. Here is the video link.

P&O Cruises Australia has sold the Pacific Dawn again. Due to CMV going bankrupt, the Pacific Dawn has been sold again, this time to a undisclosed buyer. Let's hope it's not the Aliaga shipbreakers, we really don't need to see another Carnival ship hit the beach. Here is a article link.

CARNIVAL FASCINATION is now on the move but her AIS destination has still not been changed from Cadiz Anch.

She might be heading to Aliaga where her sisters are being scrapped there.

The Carnival Fantasy, Carnival Imagination, and Carnival Inspiration as well as Pullmantur's Sovereign and Monarch have been featured by Reuters and South China Morning Post. They interviewed the chairman of the Aliaga Scrapyard and he said that three more vessels will arrive in a few weeks. I fear the three vessels he mentioned includes the Carnival Fascination as well as Royal Caribbean's Empress of the Seas and Majesty of the Seas. Here is the link to the videos:

The next three vessels are Horizon, Carnival Fascination and Mare (ex Marella Celebration).
