If you mean some form of Press Release which I can post here with a link, no, I don't.

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.

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.
