This ship has the distinction of being one of the fastest seagoing passenger vessels in the world, able to maintain a speed of 28 knots. Despite its modern architecture, the ship enjoys classic lines and has a following among ship enthusiasts. Built in 2002 for a now-defunct cruise line, she is used most of the year for a non-profit “Semester at Sea” program.
The 25,000-ton, 836-passenger the ship itself is a hybrid of sorts; not quite as upscale as other modern cruise ships, but not as rugged as an exploration vessel. Although there are eight suites with verandas, 12 without, and 30 "junior suites," the remaining inside and outside staterooms average just 140 square ft., small for a ship that is not a classic.
This MV comes complete with a full-service spa, a pool and sun deck, a theater-style lounge, men's and women's saunas, a library, computer lab and several classrooms. There is one main dining venue and a snack bar poolside.
Apart from the usual cruise ships amenities like a swimming pool and fitness center, she also features classrooms, an 11,000-volume library, computer lab with wireless internet access, a student union, campus store and two dining rooms.
This is being sold at auction. Minimum opening bid is approximately USD 10,000,000.
Estimated value of this vessel is USD40,000,000 +
