For years that ship was marketed mainly to German speaking passengers, but I have not much about her for the last year or two.
She was in the news a couple of years ago when several passengers were killed on an air/sea program when their plane went down. The ship was in New York at that time.(i think).
Thanks, My son lives in Germany and is going to take a cruise as a guest of one of the performers. I was just trying to find out something about the ship. Google didn't bring up anything. I remember something about a plane crash and some members continuing the cruise when the others did not make it.
I don't have the specific's of this ship,but I remember it is a smaller ship under 30,000 tons, but was built for deluxe cruising. The original pricing was quite high and it attracted a very upscale group of German passengers. It had all one seating dining and the dining room was very formal . The dining room looked like a clasic liner decore of the ships of the Titanic area. Lots of wood grain paneling in the dining room and ornate furniture to match.
This is ,ofcourse, info on the origianl ship, I have idea what she is like today.
The plane crash you are all referring to was the loss of the Concorde, the only time one of them has ever been lost. Everyone onboard was killed. The crash occurred on takeoff from Paris and it was filmed, absolutely awful. I'm glad I got a chance to fly that marvelous aircraft once. Now they will be taking it of service. Nothing like having lunch in the US and dinner in Paris or London.
