Oceanwide Expeditions’ 180-berth Hondius – 50 Years Ago: The Jamaica Queen and Sunward – Saga’s Second Ship Still An Option

The Cruise Examiner for 28th November 2016

hondius

Oceanwide Expeditions plans to introduce its first newbuilding, the 180-berth Hondius, in 2019

Last week came news that Oceanwide Expeditions has ordered a new 180-berth expedition ship from the Brodosplit shipyard in Croatia for delivery in 2019. We also have a look back this week at events of fifty years ago that featured Arison Shipping and two ships, the short-lived Jamaica Queen and the somewhat longer-lived Sunward. These events precipitated not only the founding of Norwegian Cruise Line but also what later became today’s Carnival Group & plc. Finally, we have received a correction from Saga on the planning of their second new vessel.

New Ships For Celestyal Cruises? – New Owners For STX? – Amadeus Picks Up Rhone Slack

The Cruise Examiner for 7th November 2016

knudehansenlng

Is this design a protoype for two new ships for Celestyal Cruises?

This week, from a study that Knud E Hansen did of mid-size cruise ships powered by LNG (above) versus HFO come two illustrations that might be protoypes for Celestyal Cruises, who admitted a couple of months ago that they were investigating newbuildings. Meanwhile, four bidders have made offers to acquire either the shipbuilders STX or cruise ship builders STX France, or the two together. As two of the bidders are Fincantieri and Damen, speculation is that STX France, the former Chantiers de l’Atlantique, may soon acquire new owners. And on the Rhone, Amadeus looks set to pick up to some of the slack Crystal left behind when they cancelled their French river cruise plans.
