Fathom To Become Phantom? – Jacques Cartier To Enter Overnight Cruise Trade – Crystal Esprit’s Caribbean

The Cruise Examiner for 5th December 2016

jacques-cartierThis week we have a look at the recently-announced demise of Fathom as its own ship operating company, although it will continue to exist. The line will operate the 704-berth Adonia to Cuba and the Dominican Republic until the spring of 2017, at which time she will go back to P&O Cruises in the UK. Elswhere, a small ship called the Jacques-Cartier (above) is being converted into a 66-berth cruise ship for the St Lawrence while the 62-berth Crystal Esprit will be moved to the West Indies next year.

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.
