The m.v. Barbara carries eight passengers in four double-bedded en suite cabins with views

Peter Doehle’s 65,740-ton deadweight container ship Barbara has been assigned to a new cargo-passenger route between Southampton, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp and Le Havre, by way of Savannah, Cartagena and the Panama Canal, to Puerto Quetzal, Long Beach, Oakland, Tacoma and Vancouver BC. She then returns from Vancouver via Oakland, Long Beach and Balboa, through the Panama Canal again to Cartagena, Caucedo and Savannah before returning to Southampton.

The round voyage takes 70 days while the voyage times from Southampton to Vancouver and Vancouver back to Southampton are 35 days in either direction. Calls in Vancouver are made at Fraser-Surrey Docks. The cargo side of the service is operated by five container lines comprising The Alliance. Cabins are now available for scheduled sailings from Southampton on/about May 31, August 9 and October 10.

Built in 2010, the Barbara has four double-bedded cabins. The fare is €6,709 per person for the full round voyage (€7,619 for a single passenger), or €3,559 for the one-way trip from Southampton to Vancouver (€4,014 for a single), and the same Vancouver back to Southampton. Air-conditioned with indoor swimming pool, all cabins have views and age limits are 6 to 80 maximum. This voyage can also be turned into part of a round-the-world routing bu lonking up at Oakland with CMA CGM’s Columbus JAX service to the Far East and New York via Suez. Full US B1/B2 visa required for any US port calls.
