    "Carnival Victory" byggast om og skifter namn til "Carnival Radiance"

    Ah well, its all surface rust ;-) The refit was on hold for a long time because of COVID-19 and the resulting financial problems of Carnival. However, it seems that her refit will be finished after all...

    Ukjent rederi/eier, Bygg nr. 724 ved Freire Shipyard, MT 5016 "TBN"

    I've not seen anything official being shared yet and I doubt we will see anything until the hull is launched. Expect something similar to ULYSSES/ANDROMEDA.

    Norwegian Yacht Voyages, Bygg nr. ? ved Navantia (TBC), Yachts "Caroline"+ 3x "TBN"

    Hi Sindre, no I think he missed his window of opportunity. On the other hand, I think the small super luxury/expedition segment of the cruise industry could be the only one with some real potential in the next few years. Max 200-300 pax is quite controllable and these luxury ship have a good...

    Rosellinis Four-10, Bygg nr. 884 ved Vard Brattvaag, VARD 6 16 "REV Ocean"

    Thanks Locarno, wasn't sure about that. I know welding aluminium is indeed a complex and specialist task.

    Rosellinis Four-10, Bygg nr. 884 ved Vard Brattvaag, VARD 6 16 "REV Ocean"

    Hi Aleksander, thanks for that. I had lately been hearing that there were more problems with REV, but I didn't know which problems exactly. This doesn't surprise me. There is a good reason why all the big steel yachts have aluminium superstructures: Weight saving (and it is easier to do complex...

    Ship of the year 2020 nominerte - "Ro Vision", "Yara Birkeland" og "REV Ocean"

    Well, the only logical winner could be Ro Vision, as REV Ocean is far from finished and Yara Birkeland is on hold...

    Siem Group, Bygg nr. 93 ved Fosen Yard, RoPax "TBN" (ex. "Honfleur")

    I think Siem received HONFLEUR as part of a settlement with them to exit FSG ownership.

    Which Cruise Ships Will Be Scrapped Or Taken Out of Service Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic?

    In a few day's time, Carnival Inspiration (sistership of Carnival Fantasy), will also be beached, probably next to Fantasy. The line-up will get even more bizarre. As the unofficial "historian" of Aliaga, Selim San (@captainselim on Instagram) said: "Aliaga cruiseport!":

    Ponant, Bygg nr. 887 ved Vard Søviknes, VARD 6 17 "Le Commandant Charcot"

    The hull of Le Commandant Charcot is currently in drydock in St Nazaire, France, for installation of the propulsion pods. This work should originally have been done in April when the hull was being moved to Norway, but because of COVID-19 it was not possible at the time. So, now they had to tow...

    "Maasdam" og "Veendam" solgt til Marella Cruises eller til det nye rederiet Blue Seas Cruises?

    That Blue Seas render is obviously total fiction and has no relation whatsoever to Maasdam and Veendam. I think these two have been bought by Greek/Cypriot asset players and may take a while to return to service. Probably the new owners are hoping ship values will go up and then resell them.

    Which Cruise Ships Will Be Scrapped Or Taken Out of Service Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic?

    Monarch, Sovereign and Horizon now all have the status "To be broken up" in Equasis. Monarch is anchored off Aliaga since 14 July, so will probably be the first to be beached.

    Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines kjøper cruiseskipene "Amsterdam" og "Rotterdam" fra Holland America Line

    I was hoping Fred. Olsen would make a move for a few new ships in the current situation, and thankfully they did. Perfect ships for them and they got them really cheaply.

    Which Cruise Ships Will Be Scrapped Or Taken Out of Service Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic?

    Carnival Fantasy is heading for Izmir, which is very close to Aliaga. 99% sure she will be scrapped.
