The other cruise ship which appeared on the Love Boat series the ex ISLAND PRINCESS appears to be headed to Alang Beach as AMEN. Seen on Marine Traffic.
She is also known in her latter years as DISCOVERY amongst a few other ex names.



Shipping News and information / Pacific Triangle reported sold
« on: November 12, 2014, 09:54:45 AM »
Long time Port Kembla visitor the 184,744DWT PACIFIC TRIANGLE IMO 9189158 has reportedly been sold and is currently on her last visit to Port Kembla.

Not sure of of details at this time but the information comes from her crew.

Built in 2000 at Samsung's Shipyards in South Korea, Pacific Triangle has since then been dedicated to carrying Iron Ore to Port Kembla from Port Hedland and Coal to Japan for the then BHP and now Bluescope Steel.

I hope there is a replacement in the pipeline for the Aussie crew but the information I have is redundancies and offers of positions on other vessels. 

Hi all.

For those interested.

Marine Traffic is displaying vessels including Naval Ships from various countries involved in the search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 in the Indian Ocean off the Western Australian coast.

This area of ocean is usually out of range for plotting vessels on the site. I noticed the activity in this area about 24hrs ago and has been constant since.

Australian flagged Ro-Ro Ship Iron Monarch is only hours from her fate.

Found her on heading for Bhavnagar (near Alang)India for demolition.

Sad day



Hi guys

Just found out that BERGE PACIFIC (ex IRON PACIFIC) built Feb 1986, 231,851DWT is on her way to Alang to be scrapped. This follows her final commercial voyage from Guaiba to Qingdao via Singapore.

She was originally built to carry iron ore & coal for the then BHP Transport and was the largest vessel to work the Australian coast at the time.



The Australian shipping industry looks set to shrink even further with the Danish tug & salvage company SvitzerWijsmuller A/S, placing a bid for Adsteam Marine Limited. The deal which is currently going through hearings at The United Kingdom Competitions Commission looks set to be finalised during the first quarter of 2007. SvitzerWijsmuller A/S is a subsidary of AP Moller.

According to an article in P&O Australia's news letter Funside News, the cruise ship Pacific Sky is to be sold and will be replaced by the 70,000 ton Regal Princess. Regal Princess will be renamed Pacific Dawn and will commence its cruises from Australia in October 2007, following a refurbisment program. Pacific Sky will depart from the P&O fleet in May 2006.
