Century Harmony (ex-Carnival Fascination) sold for scrap in Alang:

I wonder if we are going to see more scrapping due to high steel prices?

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

Celestyal Experience has been sold to Beacon & Bay Shipping Services of Dubai and has been renamed Antares Experience. Honestly, I'm surprised that she was sold off by Celestyal Cruises, I thought it would be one of her two old ships, but not her. Hopefully the Antares Experience isn't scrapped.

ANTARES EXPERIENCE didn't go direct to Dubai.  Seems to have been in Karachi area and now heading west
CENTURY HARMONY anchored offshore Colombo SL for some time now.

But changed flag to St Kitts Nevis 11/2021 and "to be broken up" in Equasis
Owner now Maker Shipping Ltd, Majuro MHI (c/s V4OC4, MMSI 341297000)

CENTURY HARMONY still offshore Colombo, but renamed 11/2021 as Y HARMONY according to Equasis, with new owner Nina Services Corp.

Antares Experience has arrived at Gandani shipyard, the same one that the Canberra was scrapped at. Here's the link https://www.instagram.com/p/CXIrdMQF2vO/?utm_medium=share_sheet

There are uncomfirmed reports (as in Carnival hasn't confirmed or denied it yet) that the AIDAmira has been sold off. Here are two links (one's in German, one in Italian).

It's confirmed: AIDAmira will leave the AIDA fleet in March 2022. Here is the link: https://www.seatrade-cruise.com/news/aidamira-exiting-aida-selection-programme-expands-plus-aidacosma-inauguration-date-set

As of now, the new buyer is unknown, but I do have some suspects:
1. MSC Cruises (Sister ships currently operate for MSC Cruises)
2. Ambassador Cruises
3. SeaJets
4. Alang or Aliaga shipbreakers
Anyways, who do you think bought AIDAmira?

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