  • Re: ex HARALD JARL ::: ANDREA :::

    What a coincidence, Noble Caledonia was the last company who chartered the MS Andrea for the Antarctic season 2008-09. I was onboard at that time when the owners Elegant cruises went bankrupt and the Andrea sailed to Split where she remained for sale for three years. And now Noble Caledonia is the first one to charter the ship again as the MV La Serenissima. Furthermore, since last year I am working full time for Noble Caledonia on their 2 ships Island Sky and Caledonian Sky. It is a small world....
    On the 6th of July the court was to deside if I would finally get my lost pay of the Andrea, but as the 9 different claims exceeded the price which was paid for the vessel by its new Russian owner the court has to produce a written desicion which can take another 2 months. I wonder if I will ever see my money... Anyway, I am sooo thrilled the ship will sail again and when I look at the Volga Dream - the other ship of the same owners - I am sure they will do a good job with refurbishment!

      Hi Kristine, nice to have you here again. The problem with the unpaid loans is, that in a national land-based working relationship these loans will be paid for a certain time by the job center. In my country this is 3 months. If there are more loans missed, the employee is treated like a standard creditor. That means, you are behind the special creditors like f.e. the harbour, which has running expenses, or creditors, which have taken mortgages or similar assignments.
      So sea workes do not seem to have equal right in this case (no money from the job center) and you have to be lucky to see some money.

        If you search www.shipsotting.com and the name ANDREA, you can also now see a couple of recent drydock photos of her from Split... even her propellers!

            A little high for stabilizers, don't you think??
            Looks like a shell plate has been replaced, either because of damages or excessive corrosion.

            PS> The 4 pics on shipspotting.com is the latest I can find of this vessel

              Hi Ralf,

              well, I'll see what happenes... I was never employed through a job center but directly with the owner of the Andrea, namely Elegant cruises, which should give me a heads up for my wages. Anyway, I had a fabulous time on the ship in the Antarctic!!
              What the red patch on the side of the ship is concerned, it might be that they have replaced a part inside the ship (engine, air conditioning) which was to big to be removed and thus had to cut a hole in the side to do so. That is quite common and was done on the ship I work on now.

                An area of hull designed to be removed for ingress/egress of major items is sometimes known as a "soft patch" but, given its position, I doubt this patch was part of the original design.

                From the brochure, it looks like the new owners are sticking with the Gustavian decor. I certainly hope so.

                                Good luck J-O, I hope you get to see her.

                                If not then at least they spelled "Trondheim" correctly, unlike "Torghatton".
