Last week came news that Royal Caribbean would be selling its 1,800-berth Legend of the Seas to Thomson Cruises, following in the wake of the Splendour of the Seas, which was delivered to Thomson last month and will make her maiden voyage this weekend under the name TUI Discovery. We also have a look at Celebrity Cruises’ dedicated charter flight programs in two different markets, the UK and Canada. And finally, the first of Carnival Cruise Line’s purpose-built cruise ships to go for scrap is the Henna, built in 1986 as Carnival’s third new ship, the Jubilee. She operated for several years as the Pacific Sun for P&O Cruises Australia before going to work for HNA Cruises in China for the last three years of her thirty-year career.
