Bump, cause I read somewhere that the carrier's final destination is going to be the scrap yards, cause all deals to private customers fell through. What a fucking shame... if I had the money, I'd jump at this thing immediately. Holy shit, imagine the boat parties we would throw...

Keep in mind that it was owned by the french first...

 

nobody wants to buy a boat that smells like frogs and cheese...

Yeah man but the key is that's a luxury liner... when you downgrade

from carpets and oak to steel grating and sheet metal, I think you lose a

lot of the cover price.
