Another Look At Cruise Ship Registry: Little Changed Since Last Year
15/10/2012 Leave a comment
On March 14, 2011, just before I took over this column from Mark Tré, he wrote an article on cruise ship registry that has been one of the most widely consulted in the whole Cruise Examiner series. In view of recent events, such as last year’s reflagging of Cunard’s three Queens to Bermuda, the dispute over whether the Deutschland would be reflagged to Malta (she has remained on the German register), and other questions about the effect of cruise ship registry on the industry (and vice versa), we repeat that column here. Other than the switch by Cunard to Bermuda and the delivery of new ships over the past year and a half, Mark’s findings remain absolutely the same today.
