Silver Spirit Goes To Palermo For Lengthening – Vancouver Considers An Outside Cruise Berth – Delos Shipping Acquires Deutschland

The Cruise Examiner for 26th February 2018

Deutschland

Delos Shipping LLC of Dallas has acquired the 552-berth Deutschland from Absolute Nevada LLC

A week from today, Silversea’s nine-year old 540-berth Silver Spirit will enter dry dock in Palermo to commence her stretching to become a 608-berth Silver Muse-like vessel, with more capacity and updated facilities. With the recent increase in ship size, meanwhile, the Port of Vancouver is considering a new cruise ship docking facility outside its main port area, which the new mega ships cannot access because of the height restriction imposed by the Lion’s Gate Bridge. Elsewhere, Dallas-based Delos Shipping has acquired the Deutschland (seen above in Phoenix Reisen colours)

Quantum of the Seas at SotonThe 4,180-berth Quantum of the Seas (left) visited Southampton last week, following by just sixteen days a similar visit by her larger fleet mate, the 5,488-berth  Oasis of the Seas. As Quantum departed yesterday for New York, we have a look at how she compares with the 2,620-berth Queen Mary 2 and we update readers on the changes effected to Oasis during her drydocking in Rotterdam. With today’s news that the 1,450-berth Magellan is about to join Cruise & Maritime Voyages on charter from Costa Cruises Group, we also have a look at some of the operators and the health of the European market for smaller more traditional ships.
