The  four container ships that were built in 2003 for the French West Indies Line have now been transferred to the line’s Europe Caribbean Service. They sail from a wider range of ports in Europe than just France, calling at Rotterdam, Hamburg and Antwerp before leaving Le Havre for a tour round the Caribbean via Kingston, Cartagena, Santo Tomas, Puerto Cortes and Moin before returning to Rotterdam. a full round voyage of 42 days.

The four ships that have made the move, CMA CGM Fort St Georges, Fort St Louis, Fort St Pierre and Fort Ste Marie, are of 28,000 tons deadweight carrying capacity and each can carry up to twelve passengers, the maximum that can be accepted on a cargo ship without a doctor. Passengers are accommodated in an owners cabin and four twin cabins, each of about 195 sq ft, and two single cabins of about 155 sq ft. Each ship is also equipped with a passenger lounge, a gymnasium and an outdoor swimming pool.
