Fred. Olsen Cruise Line says it has agreed to sell the 1966 built Black Prince for further trading in South American waters.
Black Prince Cruise Ltd., which owns the 451 passenger vessel, has been agreed with Servicios Acuaticos de Venezuela CA (SAVECA) through U S Shipbrokers of Florida, USA. "Completion of the sale and the delivery of Black Prince to SAVECA will take place shortly after its last cruise finishes in Southampton on 16th October, 2009. It is understood that the vessel will be used as a cruise ship operating in Venezuelan waters," Fred. Olsen said in a statement
With the sale of the Black Prince after October, the Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines fleet will consist of four vessels: Black Watch, Boudicca, Braemar and Balmoral. The 11,209 gross ton Black Prince was originally used as a ferry in North Sea trades and as a cruise vessel that operated from the UK to the Canary Islands. It was rebuilt in 1987 to become full time cruise liner.
Together with P&O Cruises' Canberra (1961-97) and Cunard Line's Queen Elizabeth 2 (1969-2008), Black Prince pioneered modern British cruising.
