    Cruise ship Porto is sold to be scrapped. I wonder when Funchal goes the same way.

      Very interesting, although bad news. I believe, we will soon have a market niche for traditional cruise ships beside the booming party cruisers. Let‘s hope, that there will be some ships left over then to fill this niche. We booked a greece cruise abord ms ocean majesty for october next year to have this experience.... by the way: glad to see you posting. Ashes on my head, i have very busy months behind me and the to do list in the forum gets longer and longer... but so good to see we are still there and motivated to be active!

        So sad, so sad. But everything has a lifespan. And as Ralf says, we need to act ut our dreams if we want to sail on ships like these. Their days are soon over, and if you want a truly historical cruise, do it now before it becomes too late.

          Mare S ex.Marella Spirit, ex.Thomson Spirit was sold on 29.10.18 for scrapping in Alang, India.
          The ship was in Piraeus and awaited further orders before its last trip via the Suez Canal to Alang.

          Mare S ex.Marella spirit left Piraeus this morning on her way to Alang.
          She got 35 years in service as a cruise ship.

          That´s right janihudi,she started her career as Nieuw Amsterdam back in 1983.

                Imagine having the chance to visit these ships once they are beached... I have always dreamt about all the stuff that probably can be found on board ships at the end of their career.

                Especially on the SS Blue Lady (Norway)... imagine all the things they found stashed away everywhere on board.... !
