    Good to see so much optimism in the industry with so many older smaller ships being bought.

    Although with operating costs per passenger more than the giants, if the big players are correct, I wonder how they will make money.

      They won't have big debts to pay back and massive corporate salaries to support.

      They may also be able to get their cost of sales down if they get the product right and find a market.


      Going to be interesting what Seajets come up with for these leisure ships, they have a successful ferry business plying the Cyclades
      .

        Agreed nice to see at least some saved and some optimism.You would hope a successful company will have done its numbers?Predictions are quite hard now though

            2 more added to the fleet.

            Ex CMV columbus and Magellan.


            Thats 6 ships so far.

            Wonder if they will team up with ex CMV boss to start a new line as he has the assets experience to kick-start marketing.

              I had forgotten that Christian Verhounig who bought the CMV assets lives in Greece.

                Yes some rumours swirling about him leasing the ships back in a new venture.
                Time will tell
