Crystal Examines s.s. United States – Other Cruise News: – Cruise Ship Creep – Ocean Liner Society Chooses Sovereign

The Cruise Examiner for 8th February 2016

s.s. United StatesLast week saw the news that Crystal Cruises was about to undertake a feasibility study into whether the 1952-built s.s. United States could be revived and put back into service as a fast 21st Century cruise ship (see artist’s concept, above). The results of this determination should be known by the end of the year. Elsewhere, we look at “cruise ship creep” as different classes of ship keep getting progressively longer, with more berths in each case. And the Ocean Liner Society has chosen to take this year’s annual group cruise on Pullmantur’s Sovereign, a vessel that when built in 1988 was the world’s largest cruise ship.
