4 minutes read • May 3rd, 2018
Last week we began a series of articles about

cruise ships for sale

.
In the previous article, we discussed Carnival Cruise Line’s liners that may join other companies soon (you can read about them here).
In this part, we’ll share a list of Holland America Line’s representatives that are likely to leave the company’s fleet soon.

We remind you that we checked several S&P broker websites. We were amazed by the number of well-known cruise ships that are put up for sale at the moment. Well, of course, there’s no publicly accessible information on the names and owners of these ships. Nevertheless, you can check their technical characteristics and pictures and draw your conclusions!

We offer you to compare general characteristics of cruise liners that we found on S&P broker websites and well-known cruise ship that look very similar to them.

As you can see, there is a slight difference in some characteristics, so we could be wrong. However, did you notice that each of three cruise ships for sale have a recognizable livery?
Nevertheless, we’d like to mention that it’s just our assumptions but not a statement of facts.

Next time we’ll check the Royal Caribbean International’s ships that are likely to leave their fleet soon. You can read this story here.
Stay tuned!
