Sale of Fred Olsen’s Black Prince agreed

The Fred Olsen Cruise Lines ship Black Prince is to be sold, which will bring the total number of vessels in the cruiseline’s fleet to four.

The sale, which has been agreed between the ship’s owners Black Prince Cruise and Venezuelan company Saveca, will take place after its last voyage, which will end at Southampton on October 16.

The 451-passenger vessel has been in service with Fred Olsen since October 1966, initially operating as a joint cruise ship and vehicle ferry between the UK and Canary Islands and the UK and Norway.

Most recently, it was used as a full-time cruise ship from UK ports to Europe, the Arctic, Africa and the Caribbean.

Following the sale, it is believed Black Prince will operate as a cruise ship in Venezuelan waters.

The remaining ships in the Fred Olsen fleet are: Black Watch, Boudicca, Braemar and Balmoral.
