These five cruise ships are being scrapped in Alang

Five cruise ships are scrapped in Alang, India


After reports came back last year that cruise ships were being scrapped in Aliaga, Turkey, Alang in India has now come to the fore again. When reading the name “Alang”, most cruise fans feel cold, because most of them know what it means when a cruise ship travels there. 


If a ship goes to Alang or Aliaga, everyone knows, because here the engines are switched off one last time, the ship is paid attention, the service is over and the cruise ship will never be seen on the oceans again.

As part of the corona pandemic, five cruise ships have already been sold to Alang for scrapping. Including the Satoshi, whose cabins were to be sold. It was a project of the Ocean Builders company. This ship is the former Pacific Dawn, which was supposed to switch to CMV. 

CMV went bankrupt, however, the ship was sold to Ocean Builders. But the project with the sale of the individual cabins also failed and so Ocean Builders sold the ship for scrapping. 


Another victim of the CMV bankruptcy is the MS Marco Polo. Like the other four ships in the former fleet, it was auctioned and is now also being scrapped in Alang. In addition to the two cruise ships mentioned, Grand Celebration from Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, MS Ocean Dream from Peace Boat and MS Karnika from Jalesh Cruises are also dismantled in Alang. MS Karnika is a cruise ship that was once very well known on the German market. Here she cruised earlier as A’Rosa Blu and later as AIDAblu.
