Thomson Emerald to Leave Fleet
April 17, 2008
At this point, the company, which said it was discharging Emerald because it's looking for more "more contemporary tonnage,” has not yet said if it will purchase or lease another ship to fill its role. In the meantime it will redeploy another of its ships (Destiny or Spirit) from Palma to take over Emerald's itineraries.
As the line's longest serving ship, the Emerald has always been a firm favourite with repeat cruisers and is set to sail its last season of 7 and 14-night trips around the Eastern Mediterranean this summer.
