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.

Last week came news from MSC Cruises that it would be returning to the ex-UK market in 2017/18 with its 2,550-berth MSC Magnifica, to be based in Southampton in 2018. Elsewhere, Hurtigruten has announced that its new 530-berth expedition ship Roald Amundsen (above) will be based at Punta Arenas, Chile, in 2018, while its 254-berth Fram and 600-berth Midnatsol will work from Ushuaia, Argentina. Meanwhile, Saga is reported to have confirmed a second order for a less than 1,000-berth ship from Meyer Werft in Papenburg.

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.
