I do fear that if more cruise lines shut down due to the pandemic, Golden Princess and Star Princess will be next to sail for the breakers.

Well, Carnival announced that they will sell two more ships. The total of ships Carnival will sail is now 15. They hadn't announced the identity of the two vessels, but it's likely the Carnival Fascination and Carnival Imagination  as they recently moved to a long term lay-up with no plan to return sailing with Carnival around the same time Carnival made the two xtra ship sail announcement.

I have some good news! Today, the Nieuw Ryandam was renamed the Rotterdam, so she will be the seventh vessel to bear the Rotterdam name in Holland America Line's fleet after the Rembrandt (Rotterdam  V) and Borealis (Rotterdam VI)! Here is a link to the announcement.

Here's a video of Inspiration's beaching:

Unfortunately (in addition to turning the camera sideways) they cut off just before the destruction derby began. Photos taken after the beaching show Inspiration wedged between the two ships with the Sovereign listing to starboard.

It's ironic that they beached the Inspiration on the same day the bow of Sovereign was cut off.

The last two remaining Rotterdam class vessels to still sale for Holland America Line are for sale.

With the renaming of Veendam to Aegean Majesty, It makes it likely that the undisclosed buyer for her and Maasdam is Blue World Cruises as the vessel on their website is a Statendam class vessel and because the cruise line is attempting to buy their sister ship Pacific Aria (ex-Ryandam) from P&O Cruises Australia. It's unknown if Blue World Cruises is going to buy the Vasco Da Gama (ex-Statendam), but if they do buy her and Pacific Aria and turn out to be the Undisclosed Buyer of Maasdam and Agean Majesty, then all four sister ships would sail together for the first time since 2014.

Pacific Dawn and Pacific Aria are for sale. With the transfer to CVM cancelled, Carnival finally decided to put the vessels for sale.

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.
