Re: Cruise Ship/Ocean Liner Thread -2022

The Carnival Sensation arrived in Aliaga for scrapping in early April 2022 after sailing for 29 years. This is a ship that had 15 years of life left, much of it with a secondhand or thirdhand line. I also see this ship as one that had some value as a hotel and museum ship. https://cruiseradio.net/ca...
