Buy retired cruise ship: The points guy shows that London’s CW Kellock & Co. auctioneer will list one of the earliest vessels of the Carnival Cruise Line, the Holiday, next month. It could be all of you if you have a few million dollars lying around.
According to The Points Man, the former Carnival vessel had also sailed since 2015 for Cruise & Maritime Voyages under the name Magellan. It still retains its signature, known as the “whale tail.” Since that time, the British business has been shut down because of the coronavirus.
It is the second oldest carnival ship still in existence today. CW Kellock & Co. has some additional vessels to auction for October. According to CruiseHive, they include Vasco Da Gama, Columbus, Astor and Marco Polo. The ships in Port Tilbury in Essex (Germany) are all based other than Marco Polo.
Anyone wishing to submit an offer could also carry out a ship inspection with CW Kellock & Co., reported The Points Guy. By Oct. 19, 2020, all offers must be sent to the company. The pre-auction price estimate for the boat is currently not valid, but The Points Guy predicts that it will be several million dollars.
