Oh no, the news are covering how the Magellan (ex. Holiday) is still laid up after CMV's bankruptcy.
She's for sale online, but if no one buys her, she's going to join her younger and bigger sisters in the scrap yards. We have to try to get Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line to buy her as her sister ship Grand Celebration is currently sailing for them. Here's the link to her online listing.

Yes, fully agree. We must try to persuade them!

FTI Cruises has shut down so we could give the FTI Berlin as well as CMV's Astor to Aliaga in exchange for Monarch. We would have to also pay Aliaga 5.5 million dollars to retrieve the Monarch and tow it back to Europe. They don't start scrapping the vessels until Monday August 3, so we have to act fast before it's too late.

Good idea!

I've got three quid I can chuck in the pot. How are you raising the rest? Cake sale?

RIB won't do it, but you can use it for inspecting the Monarch while Fairmount's tugs try to tow her off the beach.

Good idea, I'll bring my hacksaw along with the pickup truck. I can saw through her bow and take it away for safe keeping.

I just received an email from the Fairmount: after watching that video of the Monarch's beaching, they said it's not a problem to tow her back on the water with a couple of their 200t bollard pull tugs. A problem is that while they are on their way to Aliaga to resque the Monarch, the [not typed] would be already cutting off her piece by piece. I guess we would need more glue then.

That's ok, I have a rib on standby to tow her back off the beach.

Given the things being suggested in this thread I'm not quite sure how many on this site are actually sane, or maybe they are just trolling??

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.

Why??? They're old, tired, and no longer fit the current market that demands balconies. There's nothing special about them.

Seems to be in the head code of the page, as per attachment. Line 17,

Yes, she has problems. Hence why she is being towed in by tug.

Suspicious looking script at the bottom of the page, as per attachment.

It's trying to load a script from the following site https : // afrodizinlife . gq

Does anyone have any information regarding the Kopersand, currently being towed into Southampton through the Needles Channel by the tugs Wyeforce and Wyestorm.   She arrived in Freshwater Bay, southwest of the Isle of Wight, I has assumed for shelter, yesterday whilst on a voyage from Hull to Pasajes.  Southampton VTS is useless - they think she is arriving from Shoreham.  Any info welcomed.


Southampton VTS receive their information from agents and whatever is declared by the ship in question.
