    Mixed news perhaps….

    "British based Cruise Operator, Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), is pleased to announce the introduction of the 550 passenger classic cruise ship Azores to their fleet in 2015."
    http://www.cruiseandmaritime.com/ann...-ship-for-2015

    Looking good for Azores (ex-Athena) of course, and for Portuscale Cruises.

    But I hear that Discovery is being put up for sale by All Leisure Group at the end of summer, and fear she may go the way of her sister.

      Soon there will be even less reasons to go on a cruise on the Allure of the Seas: http://gcaptain.com/google-street-vi...Captain.com%29
      Why go on a cruise when you can enjoy it all from the comfort of your home???

              Why build large ships miles up a narrow river with numerous obstacles??

                MSC Magnifica is in dry dock for her fist special survey: http://gcaptain.com/msc-magnifica-re...Captain.com%29

                A bit surprising that she require rudder system replacement, steel work and pipe renewal after not fully 5 years in operation. (Delivered 02/2010)
                She has Diesel/Electric propulsion, but without pods, which is common for Cruise ships of this age. (Conventional fixed pitch propellers and rudders)

                  The Cruiseship and company MS Deutschland has announced insolvency. They are looking for fresh money to finance a drydock stay for the ship before a well booked world cruise. It seems they want to get rid of old debts. This will hit many minor investors...

                    Fewer but bigger Cruise Ships expected to visit Norway next year: http://www.smp.no/naeringsliv/article10358476.ece

                    The "monster ship "Anthem of the Seas" will visit Geiranger and Aalesund next summer. (Sterkoder beware)

                        In that case either the people in Geiranger has got it wrong,or mixed up the names, or RCI has changed the itinerary without updating their website.
                        We shall know soon enough.

                      Here is a cool look at what the future of cruise ship design is heading towards:
