    and then there were five - carnival imagination arrived on 14.09.2020 for breaking up - that has to be a first - 3 cruise ships from the same company - carnival fantasy - inspiration and now imagination within weeks of each other and 2 others from another at the same time monarch and sovereign - strange times indeed

    Like many well past their use by date.

    Princess, a division of Carnival which sent those five to Alang has just sold the Sea Princess built 1994 and the Sun Princess 1995 to unknown buyers.
    Three new ships on the way to replace them.
    Both were only about 2,000 on board whilst the new ones will be around 3,500.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    If Olsen have bought the HAL ships then I wonder what will happen to their current fleet - which is 'old' in cruising terms. Perhaps Alang will see a few more arrive.
    CMV who as you say have gone into Administration didn't actually own all the ships they operated.....but you can see some of those destined for Alang or other breakers as well. Sad period for the industry.

    Many of the ships are sold on then leased back.
    It gives the company some money to use on other newer ships.
    Like all ships they have a useful life span and that is all.
