Replacing orange with light blue would not be visible enough, not enough contrast. Retain the orange but using a lighter weight font would make it look less visually cumbersome. Also use a lighter blue background, not pale blue just a lighter blue.
The whole site just looks fussy and over designed.

My comments are not related to the features but to the look of the site, my views are unchanged since the redesign was first introduced. Basically, it looks as though the site was put together by someone that has no idea about visual design. The site works but it is visually unattractive, the dark blue back ground is wrong as are the 'heavy' orange headings and why is the first word of these headings in bold - and thus even heavier - text?
The photo categories - why does every title picture sit above a dark blue rectangle that is rounded at the bottom corners. This is messy, design for designs sake. The whole thing looks as though the person that put it together found all these different features and was anxious to use them all.
Simple is best!

Ambassador Cruises have confirmed that they have acquired this ship and that she will be named AMBITION.
A curious choice of name.

How nice she looks without the graphics on her hull.

She was such a unique ship. Sad to see her current status. :-[

But Boudicca was not a unique ship, she had two sister ships. True, they were not totally identical but near enough.

I've heard a rumour that she may not go for scrap because other purchasers are interested in her.

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.

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.
