The Monarch is moving away from Alaga, Turkey. Maybe she won't be scrapped.

We need to try to save the vessels. It's our last hope. They hadn't scrapped them yet, so there's time to buy the Monarch. Her sale listing is still up! Let's make a fundraiser.

RCCL is one of the largest, and most successful cruise ship operations in the world. If they, with all of their experience, have come to the conclusion that (particularly in the present climate) these ships are no longer viable how do envisage operating these ships successfully? Assuming that is if you are able to raise sufficient funds to purchase the vessels in the first place.

I hadn't thought it through. Maybe turn them into a hotel like Queen Mary and QE2.

How about turning them into accommodation ships for illegal immigrants anchored offshore? The Italians have got the MOBY ZAZA used thus ,though she is moored in a harbour.
Or even as an accommodation / hospital ships for the Corona cases in countries where the pandemic is rampant and there is a great need for hospital beds.
The Mercy Ships organization make invaluable use of such ships.

Maybe we can at least ask Aliaga for the tip of the bow of Monarch so we can restore it to it's RCCL colors and put it on display like they did with the bow of the France/Norway.

Pullmantur Monarch confirmed to have ran ashore. Scrapping is imminent. Again, let's get the tip of her bow, but also her funnel.

Pullmantur Monarch confirmed to have ran ashore.
Just to be clear, as at 9.45 GMT, MONARCH is still anchor in the anchorage to the South West of Aliaga, and has not "ran ashore". Let's keep to reporting facts please.

Here is another image of Pullmantur Sovereign and Monarch laid up in Naples, Italy in June 2020. The Sovereign-class vessel in the foreground is Sovereign, the one in the background is Monarch. The Norwegian Jade is also visible in the picture in the right.

SOVEREIGN now showing as heading for Aliaga, though currently heading Northward and closing on the drifting CELEBRITY CONSTELLATION, SE of Lesbos.

I can sadly confirm that the Sovereign's crew is being transferred to the Celebrity Constellation. It's also sad to see the Sovereign and the Celebrity Constellation near Aliaga and poor old Monarch. Royal Caribbean is really going to scrap these once largest vessels in the world. Majesty of the Seas still survives! We should buy the tip of their bows to preserve like the ex-France.
