Astor South PacificFor those wanting to experience a smaller more traditional cruise ship that was built for ocean passages, TransOcean Cruises of Bremen is set to begin welcoming English-speaking passengers on board its ocean cruise ship Astor, as well as four of its river cruisers. Elsewhere, on the Danube, Dertour is once again opening up the fabled river cruiser Mozart, which was once operated by Peter Deilmann but has recently been sold only to German-speaking passengers. Finally this week, news has arrived from Marseilles-based Compagnie du Ponant that with the delivery of its new Le Soléal from Fincantieri in June 2013, three ships will attempt the full Northwest Passage across the Canadian Arctic in 2013.
