Silver Moon And Seabourn Ovation – Coral Expeditions Order From Vard – APL Back In The Cargo-Passenger Business

The Cruise Examiner for 18th September 2017

Coral Expeditions

Coral Expeditions’s new 120-berth 307-foot expedition ship will be built by Vard’s shipyard in Vietnam

Last week, after some delay, Silversea finally announced that it would build a sister ship to the Silver Muse. This followed an announcement ages ago by Seabourn that it would build two ships of similar size, Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation, for the same upmarket range. Elsewhere, after winning four expedition ship orders from Ponant, two from Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and a seventh from an unidentified owner,Vard has secured its eighth order for a similar ship, this time from Coral Expeditions of Australia. And a name from the past, APL, has re-entered the passenger trades after a very long absence, by starting to accept passengers on four of its modern container ships.
