TransOcean to name Vasco da Gama in Bremerhaven

TransOcean Kreuzfahrten, the German unit of the UK based Cruise & Maritime Voyages group, said its latest acquisition will be named Vasco da Gama in a ceremony in Bremerhaven in early April next year.

The 1994 built ship that started life as Statendam of Holland America Line and which is currently sailing as Pacific Eden of P&O Cruises Australia, will operate a summer season on the German market before heading to Australia for a series of cruises during the summer season there.

The 1987 built Astor will remain on the German market year round after the entry into service of Vasco da Gama and will thus not be repositioned to Australia for the summer season 2019-20, the company has said.
