Does anyone know what's become of the old 100-passenger Renaissance ships. We were on the Renaissance VII in 2001, and it was wonderful. I know that Renaissance V is now Cruise West's Spirit of Oceanus, but what about the rest of them?
Spirit of Oceanus looked old and tired and tried to be luxury - but did not pull it off with their laminate marble. Felt the ship was way overpriced for the accommodations, the service and the cuisine that offered.
I have found that I can take a SeaDream voyage and in the end spend less money and get a truly first rate voyage. I will not go back to Cruise West.
The 3 Princess ships & 2 Oceania ones were the larger (684 pax) Rennaisance ships.
Didn't Cruise West get a couple more of the smaller ones ? Spirit of Yorktown and Spirit of Endeavour though I may be mistaken.
Hebridean International defintely got one - Hebridean Spirit (Ren VI)
Sorry that's the only one's I know of.
